CHAMP Spikes and FLYtees Preferred by 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champions

Market Leader’s Renowned Products Used by Division Winners and Advancing Finalists

(MARLBOROUGH, MA) - CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – congratulates the eight competitors advancing to the open division finals at the 2014 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships, as well as winners in the event’s Grand Champions, Ladies, Legends, Masters, Seniors and Super Seniors categories.

The Official Spike and Tee provider to the Long Drivers of America (LDA), CHAMP outfitted participants throughout the competition with its Tour-proven cleats and renowned Zarma FLYtee products. The latter features a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction at impact for increased distance and accuracy.

LDA open division finalists made it through qualifying on September 27 and will compete for the championship at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort on November 4. Golf Channel will broadcast live coverage of the event beginning at 7 P.M. Pacific Time.

“The immense torque generated by these athletes is remarkable and our spikes make certain that no matter how hard they swing, traction won’t be a problem,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “Additionally, our FLYtee is engineered to give all golfers the best chance of hitting longer, straighter shots compared to traditional wooden offerings and other alternatives.”

Winners in the Grand Champions, Ladies, Legends, Masters, Seniors and Super Seniors divisions were crowned at the Mesquite Sports and Event Complex in Nevada, on September 23. They included Bobby Wilson (Grand Champions), Sandra Carlborg (Ladies), Mike Gorton (Legends), Rick Scott (Masters), Jeff Gavin (Senior) and Vince Ciurluini (Super Seniors).

The #1 Brand on Tour, CHAMP spikes have been used by nearly 75 percent of all major winners over the past 12 years, including the victors at this year’s Masters, Open Championship and PGA Championship.

Beyond its wide range of technically-advanced cleats and the Zarma FLYtee, the company launched its signature C Grips line. Designed with a strong emphasis on technical innovation and game-improving performance, the C Grips collection consists of five models. It has gained a loyal following among players who recognize its superior feel, durability and performance characteristics.
