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 slots in the crown and sole have been narrowed and deepened to improve the face's flexibility. Another key change is an open slit within each slot that cuts through the head from the top to bottom. Adams' engineers say this improves the face's springlike effect by more than 15 percent. The lower lofts have tungsten weights in the heel and toe to help optimize the center of gravity (CG).
"Easy to hit high and straight."
When you hit the ball, it's like a hammer pounding a nail: It's quick, productive and a beautiful act.
Adams' ambitious approach to improving face flexibility will help players of all abilities (hence, the 32-degree model).
The slot on the crown might work, but visually it's not the traditional look preferred by many golfers.
