Like any golfer, Adams Golf believes the problem isn't in the swing, it's in the clubs. The company’s founder is a man named Barney Adams who started Adams Golf in 1987. Mr. Adams had built a career in golf manufacturing as a component supplier and contract manufacturer. He benefited tremendously from his experience custom-fitting golfers, and used those opportunities to observe the effect a variety of materials and head designs had on golfer’s performance. Applying the lessons learned in that process, Adams developed and introduced the Tight Lies fairway wood. Tight Lies had what has become known as an “upside down” head design. This innovative design became somewhat of a phenomenon in golf and still enjoys tremendous customer loyalty. (7 years after it’s introduction hundreds of thousands of golfers still have Tight Lies in their bags.) Adams product line is by no means limited to Tight Lies fairway woods, as the company produces and sells a full range of product including drivers, wedges, putters, hybrid irons and more. In addition to endorsing its products, pro golfer Tom Watson assists in design and testing.

Super Game Improvement Irons
Three hybrids and two hollow-back mid-hybrids complement three traditionally shaped short irons (8-iron through PW) to form a true integrated set. The 6- and 7- mid-hybrids feature a four-way cambered sole to improve turf interaction. The company researched yardage gaps before determining each club's loft.
"The irons glide through the grass and have nice balance."…"I like that the short irons are traditional. It's confidence-inspiring."
"A good progression from head to head, but the hybrid shafts are longer than a political speech."
A comfortable design, the a7OS will appeal to a wider range of players than other more expensive sets in this category. The 44-gram rear weight in the 3- through 5-hybrids increases stability and creates a slight draw bias that slicers will appreciate.
Some might overlook this second-year offering for the newer, sleeker-looking Idea Tech V3 set.
