Champ to Exhibit at PGA Fashion & Demo Experience

CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance grips, golf tees and accessories – will exhibit the new C1X and updated C1 putter grips, along with their entire range of products at Booth #315 during the PGA Fashion & Demo Experience, August 15-17 in Las Vegas, NV.

Created from the same soft, lightweight polyurethane as the popular C1 line, the new C1X features a flat-front, parallel shape designed to stabilize the putting stroke and encourage proper grip pressure for increased feel on the green. Its unique embossing pattern helps prevent slippage and increase comfort. The original C1 has the same familiar pistol design as previous iterations, but now includes an updated notch and diamond grip pattern, to help eliminate wrist breakdown. Both models are available in a variety of colors and maintain their performance characteristics in all weather conditions.

“The PGA Fashion and Demo Experience is a great opportunity to present our technologically-advanced products to new and existing customers, golf industry professionals and the media,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “The best players in the world trust our products to help maximize their performance on Tour and we look forward to sharing our newest innovations in Las Vegas.”

In addition to the products listed above, CHAMP will also exhibit its full array of spikes, tee and accessories including the new PiviX, a lightweight, low profile golf spike that incorporates spring-flex traction technology engineered to ergonomically feed the spikes into the turf and provide optimum traction throughout the swing. Coupled with the SLIM-Lok fastening system, PiviX represents a significant shift within the industry wherein shoe manufacturers are able to develop lighter, lower-profile designs, allowing golfers to get closer to the turf for increased stability, feel and balance.

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes are preferred by more professional golfers than any other brand and have been used by 38 of the past 54 major champions.

Other highlights from the brand include the Tour-proven Zarma FLYtee, which increases distance and accuracy on tee shots for players of all skill levels and the new C2X grip. The latter features a clean, traditional look complemented by a debossed repeating surface pattern that helps to increase hand traction in all weather conditions. Additional information on the C2X and all other grip models in the company’s catalogue are available at champgrips.com.

With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world’s largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes and the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.
