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).

Summer Special – Adams Golf

Adams_Win_LPGAchamp_GGpost-062611


In yet another example of her incredible talent and no-fear mentality, Adams Golf Tour Staff Member Yani Tseng won the Wegmans LPGA Championship by 10 strokes at 19-under-par. With the win, Tseng became the youngest player (22) to win four majors.  She also matched the LPGA Tour record-low at a major and has won three of the tour’s last six majors. The only major she’s missing is the U.S. Women’s Open title, which she’ll have an opportunity to complete her career grand slam in two weeks at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Here’s what the world’s No. 1 player carried in her bag:

Speedline 9032LS driver – 9.5 deg.
Speedline FW – 14 deg. (3)
Idea a7 hybrid – 19 deg.
Idea a7 hybrid – 22 deg.
Idea Tech a4 irons (4-PW)

Mick Elliot from espn.com has a great story about Yani and how she arrived on the global stage of women’s golf:

When Tseng flipped on her television Saturday night before going to sleep on her 54-hole lead, she tuned in the Golf Channel to watch and self-critique. But it was not to study her golf. It was to listen to herself being interviewed and judge her communication efforts.

“I probably talk too much now,” she said with a giggle last week. “I try don’t be afraid to talk to people, the media, fans or friends. You know, just try to be free. That’s how I learn English so fast. I learn lots of American slang and from the book.”

It really doesn’t matter. Her statement Sunday was heard loud and clear.

 

The summer has heated up fast for the Adams Golf Tour Staff with 3 wins in the span of 1 week. Tom Watson started by winning the Senior PGA Championship on the first hole of a playoff.  Steve Wheatcroft ran away with the Nationwide Tour’s Melwood Prince George’s County Open, finishing a staggering 29-under Sunday for a record-breaking 12-stroke victory.  And Brittany Lincicome shot a 5-under-par 66 on Sunday to record her fourth career LPGA victory at the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

This magical week on Tour comes approximately 3 months after the Adams Golf Tour staff swept the weekend of Feb. 20 with wins on the PGA Tour (Aaron Baddeley – Northern Trust Open), the Champions Tour (Bernhard Langer – ACE Group Classic) and the LPGA Tour (Yani Tseng – Honday LPGA Thailand).
