Press Release: Adams Golf Introduces the New Speedline Tech Driver

Things Just Got Personal With FASTfit Adjustability 

PLANO, TEXAS, July 25, 2012 – Adams Golf announces the release of its new Speedline Tech driver, loaded with technology and innovation, including improved aerodynamic shaping, easy-to-use FASTfit adjustability, 3DS Face Technology and lightweight, multi-material construction. Golfers can dial in the Speedline Tech for optimum performance specific to them that can deliver up to 11 more yards of distance and 54% better accuracy.

“We used advanced construction  methods and made refinements to driver technologies that we’ve developed over time to make this our most customizable and best performing driver for golfers of all skill levels,” said Tim Reed, vice president of research and development.  “It’s easy for the golfer to make adjustments and find their perfect ball flight while achieving even higher swing speeds and more distance through our aerodynamic shaping.”

6G Aerodynamic Technology
Adams Golf led the revolution of aerodynamic shaping with the original Speedline driver helping golfers swing the club faster and gain more distance.  The Speedline Tech takes that shaping to the sixth generation featuring improved slopes, curves and size to help the club cut through the air faster for even more clubhead speed and distance.

FASTfit Adjustability
FASTfit Adjustability is Adams’ answer for quick and easy club customization. The Speedline Tech driver can quickly be tuned by unscrewing the hosel and rotating the head to fit the golfer’s swing type and preferred ball flight.  FASTfit allows the club to be set open or closed by up to 1 degree, and thereby adjusting the loft +/- 1 degree as well. The clubhead can also be adjusted 2 degrees upright.

3DS Face Technology
The revolutionary 3DS Face Technology is a change in the traditional bulge and roll of driver faces. Through extensive research, Adams Golf’s R&D department found that a majority of golfers impact the clubface in the high toe area diagonally down through the center and into the low heel area of the clubface. 3DS Face Technology provides optimal spin and launch in all three hitting zones of the clubface producing up to 54% more accurate and longer drives.

Multi-Material Construction
Using lightweight and multi-material construction, the Speedline Tech driver is the best performing, easiest-to-swing driver in the game.  Featuring a unique carbon-fiber wing attached to a titanium chassis allows for this large, confidence-inspiring clubhead to maintain superior aerodynamic performance, optimal sound and ideal launch conditions.

Models, Pricing and Availability
The Speedline Tech driver will be available online and in stores on August 1st.  It will feature the Matrix Ozik RUL 54 as its stock shaft offering.  The suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Speedline Tech driver is $449.99. 

Available lofts are as follows:                
8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5° and 12.5° in right hand
9.5° and 10.5° in left hand

    It’s got that nice deep face that I personally like but it just depends on the size of the overall head.

    So many drivers to choose from now you really need to go to a golf shop and try them all before you decide.

Rory McIlroy’s putter builder speaks on his winning TaylorMade Soto proto



It’s no secret that Rory McIlroy’s biggest weakness has historically been with his putter. But ahead of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by two shots, McIlroy made a putter switch and ended up with just 100 putts for the week — the lowest in his PGA Tour career. He also finished first in the field in Strokes Gained: Putting, and put on a putting display for the ages on Sunday to shoot 64 (he birdied 5 of the final 6 holes).

What’s so special about this putter? To figure that out, I spoke with TaylorMade’s International Tour Director Chris Trott, who worked directly with McIlroy on building his new putter.

Trott explains that McIlroy showed up to Bay Hill “with a different kind of confidence” that week. His caddie, Harry Diamond, showed up to the TaylorMade Tour Truck on Monday night (McIlroy wasn’t on site Monday) with a previous putter of McIlroy’s — a Scotty Cameron that he won multiple majors with, according to Trott — and he wanted to have a new putter built that matched up with the specs of it. “He came with a plan and he wanted to be on spec,” says Trott. So the TaylorMade team sent Harry off to the hotel Monday night with a TaylorMade TP Soto with no face insert, one with an insert, some other variations, and they sent him back to the hotel with a few Spiders, as well, according to Trott.

But since Trott says that McIlroy liked the feel of his previous gamer, Trott thought it was best to send a request back to TaylorMade’s offices in Carlsbad for a TP Black Copper Soto with a midslant neck and a Suryln insert in preparation for McIlroy’s arrival the next day. “Nine out of 10 times we already have a head with the insert in it [inside the tour truck], but this putter is so new,” says Trott. “It’s not even out yet.”

Trott says McIlroy showed up to the Tour Truck the next morning, but he “wasn’t enamored” with the options, although he did fancy the solid face Soto. Here’s the photo notes that Trott took of the solid-faced Soto that McIlroy liked.

Good thing Trott sent that request back to the office, though! The first words out of McIlroy’s mouth when he saw the new TP Black Copper Soto slant neck proto with the Suryln insert, according to Trott, were “Hmm, that’s nice.” But he wanted to tweak the specs. He wanted the putter an eighth of an inch shorter and 3-to-4 swingweight points lighter. Eventually, Trott also added 0.25 degrees of loft to the face compared to McIlroy’s gamer, and made it 1-degree more upright.

The new putter Trott concocted also had a Golf Pride Tradition grip on it, and McIlroy had him change it to a TaylorMade Red Cap Pistol grip.

So, McIlroy took to the putting green with the solid face Soto and the Black Copper slant neck proto with the Surlyn insert. After a few drills, McIlroy decided he liked the feel and look of the Trott concoction, and while he really liked the Black Copper finish, he did have concerns about how it would hold up in the weather.

In the end, McIlroy decided on the TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto. Here are the photo notes that Trott took from inside the trailer while holding McIlroy’s (eventual) winning putter.

The numbers in the photo above mean the specs of McIlroy’s putter are as follows:

  • Weight: 508.3 grams
  • Swing weight: D1
  • Lie angle: 71.25 degrees
  • Loft: 2.75 degrees
  • Length: 34.25 inches

Here are photos that we shot of the putter on Tuesday of the 2018 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play:

It’s safe to say McIlroy made the right decision for Bay Hill, and according to Trott, he’ll likely be sticking with the putter going forward. And if not, surely Trott and his team will be there with 7-10 more putter options for McIlroy to try out and hand-pick from. Must be nice to be Rory!

Spotted: Phil Mickelson’s Callaway Mack Daddy PM-Grind “2.0” prototype wedge



More than three years ago, Callaway released a Mack Daddy PM Grind — PM stands for Phil Mickelson — that had a raised toe section for a higher center of gravity. Mickelson liked the PM Grind wedges because the designs allowed him to get more spin on open-faced shots, and also because they created a low trajectory with more spin on square-faced shots, said Roger Cleveland in 2015.

Since 2015, Mickelson has been playing various lofts of Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind wedges, and with various amounts of lead tape.

On Tuesday at the 2018 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event, however, we spotted a new Mack Daddy PM Grind “2.o” wedge in his bag that has a different look. Is this the introduction of a new wedge release from Callaway?!


We spoke to a Callaway representative who, in so many words, said this is just Phil being Phil and tinkering with equipment, not a product launch.

“This is a Phil-specific prototype version of the Mack Daddy PM-Grind Wedge,” said a Callaway representative. “We built it specifically for him. He likes to tweak his clubs, of course, and this is just an example of that. Always a tinkerer!”
We’ll be sure to update you on more information about the PM Grind 2.0 prototype wedge when we have it.

“Boost changed the game for players when we brought it into our golf category,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “Now with the introduction of this special edition colored Boost, golfers can add another style option to their lineup while still enjoying the benefits that only Boost can deliver.”

Adidas partnered with BASF to develop the proprietary Boost technology, which offers cushioning via highly elastic thermoplastic urethane (TPU) pellets that are then fused together with heat and molded into the midsole shape for each specific model. Adidas cites energy return, unmatched cushioning and comfort along with long-lasting durability as the key benefits of the technology.

The special edition black Boost colorway is available now and will only be featured in the Tour360 family: Tour360 ($210), Tour360 Knit ($190), Crossknit 2.0 ($160). Supplies are limited.
