Company’s Renowned Spikes Worn by Past 13 Winners at Augusta National
CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance grips, golf tees and accessories – announces the 2015 Masters champion relied on its renowned spikes and new SLIM-Lok fastening system to record the lowest score in the history of the event.
Arguably one of the greatest performances of all time at Augusta National, the 21-year-old champion wore the new Zarma Tour® spike, coupled with the revolutionary SLIM-Lok fastening system, in his Drive One Golf Shoe from Under Armour®. The fifth professional victory of his young career, this win propelled the talented Texan to second in the Official World Golf Ranking. With SLIM-Lok, shoe manufacturers are able to create significantly lighter, stronger and lower-profile designs, allowing golfers to get closer to the turf for improved stability, feel and balance throughout the swing.
“This impressive phenom switched to SLIM-Lok equipped spikes in the fall and since has gone on an impressive run including this latest record setting performance,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “From the most prestigious tournament in golf to the casual afternoon round, our groundbreaking products help golfers of every level play their best.”
All SLIM-Lok equipped spikes are compatible with the millions of TRI-Lok® and Fast Twist® already in the marketplace. This system also greatly simplifies the spike changing process while virtually eliminating the risk of spike loss during rounds. An exclusive CHAMP technology, SLIM-Lok is trusted by scores of leading OEMs – including ECCO®, New Balance®, Nike®, OGIO®, TRUE Linkswear™ and Under Armour®
The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes have been used by 36 of the past 49 major champions.
