MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (May 8, 2012) -- CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide - The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories - confirms the winner of the Wells Fargo Championship relied on a blaze orange colored Zarma FLYTee en route to securing his first PGA Tour title.
Featuring a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction while promoting increased distance and accuracy, the FLYTee is used by a large and growing number of the world's best players. During the competition at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC, the champion averaged more than 300 yards in driving distance and tied-for-second in driving accuracy.
"Our spikes have long been recognized as the #1 Brand on Tour, and now our FLYTee is rapidly gaining a loyal following," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "Because players at this level are extremely particular about their equipment, more and more are recognizing our tees as the quickest, easiest way to boost performance."
All Zarma FLYTee models are constructed using a market-proven bio-agent additive created by ECM Biofilms, Inc. This enables microorganisms to metabolize the plastic into humus, an organic matter which benefits the environment.
Earlier this season, CHAMP unveiled the new MyHite FLYTee, which features a series of colored bands around the stem, allowing golfers to always place the ball at a consistent height. This unique design maximizes consistency by ensuring repeatable performance with every swing.
Beyond the scoring and environmental advantages, these tees are five times more durable than traditional wooden offerings and help facilities dramatically improve course operations, appearance and profitability by reducing tee consumption, decreasing tee litter and lowering purchasing expenses.
With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world's largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes. The company produces more than 140 million spikes annually and is the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.
