Equipment: Adams Golf brings back Tight Lies Add to ...

Adams Golf is bringing back the legendary fairway wood that helped put the company on the map in the mid-1990s.

The new and improved Tight Lies features many of the same design elements that made the original an enormous success, plus the new, award-winning Velocity Slot Technology that makes the face twice as hot.

Tight Lies features redesigned Cut-Thru Slots in the crown and sole to create maximum face deflection, allowing for higher ball speeds. Another added benefit of this new slot design is the increased forgiveness across the face.

The revolutionary low-profile, upside-down design allows for a very low center of gravity (CG), making it extremely easy to hit the ball in the air for more consistent and controllable performance. The unique tri-sole design, which made the original version playable from any lie, reduces turf interaction to increase performance from the fairway, rough, sand.

“With the new Tight Lies, we’ve got a 3-wood that you can control, you can hit it out of bad lies,” said eight-time major champion Tom Watson, who used a version of the club during The Greenbrier Classic event. “The most important thing for me is to know how far the ball is going to go, and with the new technology, here with Tight Lies, we can hit it where we want it to go and that’s what you want in a golf club."

The new Tight Lies 3-wood will be available initially in a 16-degree loft with 14-, 19- and 22-degree options coming later in the year. The Tour Fairway model will come in 14.5-degree and 18-degree lofts. The Men’s Tight Lies and Tight Lies Tour models will feature a matte black finish, while the Women’s model will feature a matte grey crown. All models will include the familiar white half stripes low on the shaft that were also featured on the original.

Adams is so confident golfers will be satisfied with the easy-to-hit performance of the new Tight Lies fairway wood, they're offering a money-back guarantee as part of its "Make Golf Easy" initiative. Anyone purchasing the new club between August 15, 2013 and October 15, 2013 will get a full refund within 30 days of purchase if they are not fully satisfied. (Note: the offer is only valid on purchases made at authorized Adams retailers in the United States. You can get more information at www.adamsgolf.com/tightliesguarantee)
