MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (Sept. 25, 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 its popular Zarma spikes were used by the 2012 FedExCup champion en route to his win at the TOUR Championship, according to Darrell Survey.
Securing his fourth career PGA Tour title and second of the season, the winner trusted the Zarma® model's unique Lotus technology, which softens the impact of walking by reducing spike pressure to create a more comfortable experience. Additionally, six other top-10 finishers at Atlanta's East Lake Golf Club relied on CHAMP spikes.
"It's no surprise that so many of the world's best players selected our products to help them maximize performance during one of the year's most important events," says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. "We offer a large variety of cleat options to suit all preferences, with each engineered to provide incredible traction, stability and comfort."

Beyond the cleat category, the company offers a wide range of products. These include the recently launched MyHite Zarma FLYtee™. Drawing from MacNeill Engineering's unrivalled 80-year heritage, the FLYtee line has quickly become one of the most-used tees by leading professionals worldwide.
