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.

A thin clubface and crown plus a 70-gram tungsten sole weight create a high-launching utility club with plenty of spring in the face. The four-way cambered sole helps reduce turf interaction, and the dual bounces on the sole (the head tapers in the front and back) make the club playable for golfers who sweep and those who take deep divots.
"The smaller head makes it look more like an iron, and it sounds like one, too. The ball really gets up in the air easily, yet it has a penetrating flight. I'm not a hybrid guy, but I'd put this one in my bag.
"This club is sweet. The black is classy, and the single white alignment line on the bottom of the face really does the trick. It's everything a hybrid should be."
Adams has succeeded in making a hybrid that looks sleek, small and playable yet launches the ball high with forgiveness.
The face angle looks set up for a fade, which can be intimidating for players fighting a slice.
