Adams Golf has refined its legendary Tight Lies fairway wood and re-introduced the product to the market.
It will be launched initially as a 16-degree 3-wood with other loft options available later.
The original Tight Lies fairway wood was a huge success for Adams back in the mid-90s, and the updated model retains many of the same design elements whilst incorporating brand new technology.
Velocity Slot Technology in the form of Cut-Thru Slots makes the face twice as hot for increased ball speeds, the Low-Profile Upside Down design allows for a low centre of gravity (CG) and the Tri-Sole design facilitates playability from any lie.
“In the ever-present pursuit of maximum distance, today’s fairway woods have become mini-drivers – extremely difficult to hit from anywhere other than from a tee,” said Justin Honea, Director of R&D.
“The low profile design places the GC below the CG of the ball, making it easy to hit the ball in the ear. The unique tri-sole design makes it easy to hit from a multitude of challenging lies and then we added a refined Cut-Thru Slot design so this new Tight Lies is twice as hot as the original.
“It’s the perfect blend of playability and performance.”
The Cut-Thru Slots in the crown and sole create maximum face deflection and the sole design reduces turf interaction to increase performance from all lies.
Tom Watson, the eight-time major champion, added: “With the new Tight Lies, we’ve got a 3-wood that you can control, you can hit it out of bad lies… that’s what you want in a golf club.”
Tight Lies fairway woods will be available to purchase from September 1. The regular version – with a Bassara Eagle graphite abaft – comes in 14, 16 and 19 degree loft options, and retails at £149.00.
The Tight Lies Tour fairway wood – with a Aldila Tour Blue shaft – is available in 14.5 degrees and will retail at £189.99.
