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.

Adams took elements of its CB1 (topline) and CB2 (sole design) and combined them in one set. A thin face (one-tenth of an inch) increases ball speed. Weight pads in the heel and toe help optimize the center of gravity (CG).
Low-Handicapper:
“The appearance is striking. The match with the KBS shaft gives you a high, aggressive ball flight that works when attacking pins.”
Middle-Handicapper:
“The rounded sole helps the club rip through the turf.”
Hot:
Seven steel-shaft choices at no extra charge is nice for the persnickety players-iron crowd. So is the black/white Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound grip that comes standard. The 4-iron through gap wedge makeup shows smarts.
Not:
No hybrid option in an iron set from Adams? Awww you’re kiddin’ me? . . . Nope, not kiddin’.
