Adams Golf Company was at the cutting edge of the fairway woods frenzy ten years ago, and under president Chip Brewer, Adams continues to flourish with its Idea hybrids and irons. The problem with Adams is the company has never had a successful driver.
That completely may change very soon. This month, Adams ships its new Insight Tech a4 driver. Designed by Scott Burnett (at one time with TaylorMade and Titleist), this driver was used on the PGA TOUR last summer under the 9015D prototype nickname, and Richard S. Johnson utilized it to win the U.S. Bank Championship in July.
Burnett designed this driver through consultation with the Long Drivers of America. A 15-gram external weight on the back sole increases distance because it helps attain optimum launch conditions.
The Adams Insight Tech A4 Driver, with a recommended retail cost of $499.99, has "generated a lot of buzz," Brewer says. "It's beautiful in a classic sense, with pear shaping and a slightly open look to it. This is clearly one of Scott's best. It looks good, sounds good and goes a long way."
Update: You can now get the Adams Insight Tech A4 Driver for $149.99 at Amazon. Click the Adams link in the paragraph above for more information.
