Adams Golf Tight Lies fairway woods and hybrids have been reintroduced with improvements to make them even easier to hit and more forgiving from most any lie for recreational players.
For many recreational golfers Tight Lies fairways woods from Adams Golf became a must-have when first introduced over 25 years ago. The company was bought by TaylorMade Golf in 2012 and the brand all but disappeared from the market with design features such as the sole slot behind the face being used in TaylorMade clubs.
Tight Lies have returned with an updated design in fairway woods and hybrids. The feature of the original Tight Lies that gave recreational players the most help was the trapezoidal sole and it is used in the latest models. The original idea that a shaped sole would decrease the contact with the turf still holds and helps get the ball from the longest rough or even from a fairway bunker.
The face has been enlarged by extending it 7mm above the crown creating 14% more face area and therefore a bigger sweet spot for added forgiveness especially when used off the tee. Plus, the now familiar slot in the sole behind the face is there allowing more efficient energy transfer to the ball for added distance.
John Gonsalves, Vice President Direct-to-Consumer for Adams said, “Adams Golf has a lot of history in the game, and we are excited to re-introduce the Tight Lies fairways and hybrids into the market.
Over the last 18 months, we’ve seen elevated interest for a recognized brand like Adams that provides great value for golfers looking to reconnect with Tight Lies technology, as well as new golfers coming into the sport.”
