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.

Game Improvement Irons
These irons have progressive offset to help golfers optimize trajectory throughout the set. (The long irons, for example, are designed with a slightly more offset to assist in launching the ball higher.) Although the sole widths are consistent, the bounce increases from long to short irons to minimize fat shots.
"One of the best-looking irons out here. This is a club that will let you become a player."…"Slam it down on the ground any way you want, and it will sit square."
"The sound at impact is solid. It has a lot of feedback. Perfect medium-high ball flight."
Its black finish is appealing, and the 4-iron through gap wedge configuration is something other companies should copy. The KBS Tour 90 shafts complement an already outstanding iron.
Adams touts itself as having "the No.1 hybrid in golf," making the absence of a hybrid options in this set is highly curious.
