CHAMP Wins Four Times in One Week--on PGA,
LPGA, European and Futures Tours
Marlborough, MA-May 19th, 2008 - CHAMP Spikes
brought the brooms to golf this weekend for a clean
sweep as winners on the LPGA, PGA, European
Tour and the Duramed Futures Tour all wore
CHAMP Spikes. On the men's tours both champions
chose CHAMP's Pro Stinger™ spikes, while on the
ladies tours, the winners wore CHAMP's Stinger™.

At the AT&T Classic in Duluth, GA it was two
CHAMP Spikes faithful dueling it out in a sudden
death playoff. The winner sported the ProStinger
while the runner-up, coming off a strong showing at the PLAYERS Championship, wore
the Stinger.

The ProStinger, the industry's only hybrid spike, combines the feel of a traditional metal
spike with the comfort and stability of today's plastic spikes. CHAMP's Q-Lok fastening
is the industry's only non threaded fastening system, with just a ¼ clockwise turn and
spikes are removed and a ¼ turn the other way locks them in place.

The story was the same at the Irish Open as the winner had the same championship
combination: CHAMP's Pro Stinger and Q-Lok fastening system. The European numbers
continue to be impressive, as 60% of all players wore CHAMP spikes. Seven of the top
12 finishers wore the CHAMP brand.

On the ladies side it was the Rolex Rankings' number one capturing her third-straight
victory at the Sybase Classic in Clifton, NJ, this win by a one-stroke margin. Once again,
the winner, who earned her 6th trophy of 2008, used CHAMP's Stinger to provide
traction all week.

On the Futures Tour, second-year player Mindy Kim of Diamond Bar, CA, claimed her
first professional title, a wire-to-wire win, to take the Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City
Championship. The choice again was the ever popular Stinger by CHAMP. In total, 94 of
the players competing in Kansas City chose CHAMP, the official sponsor of the
Duramed Futures Tour.

"It's hard to beat a huge number like 94 players wearing the same spike, that's very
impressive," said Harris MacNeill, President of CHAMP. "I can't imagine a weekend
getting any better than this one. Four winners and impressive numbers on all tours; it's
easy to see how we earned our reputation as the number one brand on tour with results
likes these."
