Adams Golf Tight Lies fairway wood is back

Adams Golf is bringing back the legendary fairway wood that 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.

Just like the original, the new Tight Lies will be launched initially as a 16 degree 3-wood with other loft options available later. 

“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 center of gravity (CG) below the CG of the ball, making it easy to hit the ball in the air. 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.”

Tight Lies fairway woods will come standard with the Bassara Eagle graphite shaft by Mitsubishi Rayon. Tight Lies Tour will feature the Aldila Tour Blue shaft.  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. Tight Lies fairway woods will be available at retail from September 1 at £149.99, and £189.99 for the Tight Lies Tour. 

Tight Lies fairway woods will be available in 14-, 16- and 19-degree in right-handed and 16- and 19-degree in left-handed. Tight Lies Tour will be available in 14.5-degree, while the Women's Tight Lies will come in 3-, 5- and 7-wood.
