Adams Golf Takes the Next Step in Hybrid Technology…

Adams-Golf-Release---Idea-a12OS

With the Introduction of the Idea a12 OS Hybrid Irons and the Idea a12 Hybrids.

PLANO, TEXAS, September 16, 2011 – Adams Golf (Nasdaq: ADGF), the category leader in hybrid iron technology, today introduced the best performing and easiest-to-hit hybrid iron set ever – the Idea a12 OS Irons.  The a12 OS Irons feature deep undercut cavity-back irons, redesigned Transitional Hybrids (patented) as well as hybrids utilizing Velocity Slot Technology for the first time.  These fine clubs will be available at select retailers beginning early October.

The newest generation of the Idea family, the Idea a12 OS hybrid irons are built with ultra thin faces, perimeter weighting and low CG’s throughout the set.  For the first time in a hybrid club, the Idea a12 OS hybrid utilizes Velocity Slot Technology to produce a spring-like effect across the entire face, which improves forgiveness and increases launch angle without increasing spin; this combined with the ultra thin face produces higher ball speeds increasing distance.  The Idea a12 OS set also includes redesigned Transitional Hybrids with a “Truss Back” design allowing more weight to be distributed to the perimeter of the club lowering the center of gravity making them optimally suited for bridging the gap between the hybrids and the deep undercut cavity-back irons of the set.

“Engineers have long been trying to increase launch angle and ball speed without increasing spin rate with little success,” said Michael Vrska, Director of Product Development at Adams Golf. “However, the spring-like effect produced across the entire face by the Velocity Slot Technology does just that, giving golfers increased distance, optimized launch and improved forgiveness.”

The standard men’s and senior sets are composed of three hybrids (4, 5, 6) featuring Velocity Slot Technology, two patented Transitional Hybrids (7, 8 ) with the “truss back” design, and three deep undercut cavity-back irons (9, PW, GW).  The set utilizes Grafalloy Pro Launch Blue graphite shafts or True Temper Performance steel shafts and Adams Tour Elite grips produced by Lamkin.  The Idea a12 OS set will have an MSRP $699.99 with steel shafts and $799.99 with graphite shafts and will be available in both right and left handed.  The set can be tailored to a specific player’s needs by adding additional hybrids (2, 3, 7), transitional hybrids (5, 6), or irons (SW, LW) through custom order.

Adams Golf also developed the Idea a12 OS Irons for women.  While utilizing the same technologies found in the men’s sets, the Women’s Idea a12 OS Irons were built with dedicated tooling and modified specs to make them better performing for women golfers.  The standard women’s set is composed of three hybrids (4, 5, 6), two patented Transitional Hybrids (7, 8), and three cavity-back irons (9, PW, SW).  The women’s set has a sandstone finish and utilizes a matching Idea Ultra-Lite High Launch graphite shaft.  The Women’s Idea a12 OS will have an MSRP of $799.99.  The women’s set can also be tailored to a specific golfer’s needs by adding additional hybrids (3, 7) or cavity-back irons (GW, LW).

Built 4 Explosive Distance!

09-14-2011-cobra-long-tom-driver-pre-order-email

During World War II, the United States Army used massive 155 mm Gun M1 cannons that could hit enemy targets with a 94-pound shell from 14 miles away. Nicknamed “Long Tom,” they were serious heavy hitters. This fall, Cobra Golf will release two new drivers inspired by those cannons—the Long Tom and the limited-edition Long Tom RAW—for golfers who want serious firepower on the tee.

Measuring four feet in length (the USGA length limit is 48” for all clubs except putters), the face of each Long Tom driver is made from a new titanium alloy that is stronger than previous materials used by Cobra. This alloy makes the face thinner, and in the process, creates 20 grams of discretionary weight that has been redistributed low and deep in the 460-cc head. This discretionary weight lowers the center of gravity and helps to create a higher launch and, according to Cobra, more distance.

Like last season’s S3 driver family, Long Tom drivers also feature an elliptically shaped sweet spot that helps to maintain ball speed on shots hit in the low-heel and high-toe areas, where Cobra says players mis-hit most often.

Weighing in at a scant 269 grams, the Long Tom will come standard with a Grafalloy Blackbird shaft. Grafalloy says that a unique black paint on the Blackbird improves aerodynamics. Even the club’s grip, a Winn Ultra Light/Shorty, is geared toward adding yardage—it’s so small that you can’t choke down on the club!

home_main_win_061911-USopen

 

Adams Golf adds the newest tour-caliber hybrid to its lineup with the Idea Pro a12. Compared to previous models, it’s designed with a hotter face, improved playability and a sleek black finish that appeals to better players. The Idea Pro a12 is the next generation of the #1 hybrids played on the PGA Tour.

Features:

  • A hot face constructed of maraging steel produces higher ball speeds and a penetrating ball flight.
  • The sole has been optimized with a steel skid plate and a flush-mounted weight screw that reduces the amount of turf interaction for better playability.
  • Sleek, tour-proven shaping meets the demands of better players who want a compact head for better shot-shaping capabilities and a dark finish to help reduce glare.

Fowler Looks to Make Splash in the Nations Capital

puma-rfowler

PUMA Golf pro, Rickie Fowler, looks to turn heads with his golf game and his stylish outfits at this week’s US Open Championship at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.  This will be Rickie’s third appearance at the US Open and he is certainly no stranger to the big stage, having made the cut as an amateur in the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, CA.

 

Rickie has been prepping for this week’s major by practicing back in California and feels confident about the state of his game.  Asked last week if he felt his game fit the US Open, Rickie stated, “It fits my game really well. My game’s in really good form right now. Going into the Open, a lot of it’s survival. You’re going to make bogeys. Hopefully get some birdies going, minimal bogeys. Over the last two to four years I’ve gotten smarter about how to play. That’ll definitely help me in the Open. I feel like I’ll have control over it. Fairways, middle of the green, two putts and move on. Pars are going to be key, sneak a few birdies, and hang on until Sunday.”

 

In his last appearance on Tour at The Memorial, Rickie led the field in birdies for the week with a total of 26.  Rickie will be looking to continue that birdie train, but reduce the mistakes.  It is sure to be an exciting week as Rickie is paired with Cobra (hyperlink) staff pro Ian Poulter for the first two rounds.

 

Rickie will also be debuting a new special edition Cell Fusion shoe which will be available in limited quantities at select retailers. Don’t miss out on your chance to own these unique shoes!

 

Check out this spectacular clip of Rickie Fowler getting warmed up for the US Open earlier this week at the Red Bull promotion in D.C.  This is truly amazing!
