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.

The forged carbon-steel head features two tungsten weights fused behind the toe section. The weights shift the center of gravity (CG) near the middle of the face and raise the moment of inertia (MOI) for improved forgiveness.
"I like the way these are weighted. The KBS shaft matches the head well."
"It's an energy drink in your iron--you get a nice power boost at impact."
The ultra-thin face helps produce a players iron with real power. The three-way sole camber delivers the kind of playability a user of this kind of iron demands.
Twenty-two PGA Tour winners used a hybrid in 2012. Even in a players set, a leader in hybrid technology should give you that option.
