2014 Hot List: Fairway Woods
Look! There's more innovation than ever
ADAMS TIGHT LIES/TIGHT LIES TOUR
LOFTS: 14, 16, 19, 22 for Tight Lies (shown); 14.5, 18 for Tight Lies Tour
TECH TALK: Slots in the crown and sole have a new cut-through design. This increases deflection all over the face, allowing for more ball speed and increased launch angle. The standard version has a shallower face height than the Tour version, which is more compact from heel to toe and front to back and launches lower with less spin.
L: "The power in this club creeps up on you. Even mis-hits are straight and much longer than I deserve."
M: "I like the compact look, despite the slot. It sits tight and flush to the ground."
HOT: The lower-profile head is part of Adams' quest to make woods playable off the turf. You have to appreciate that.
NOT: Why make the crown slot bigger than it already was?
