An Inconvenient Truth

Continued (page 2 of 2)

Interestingly, Adams Golf -- often mentioned in industry circles as the most likely company to give nonconforming a try -- says it doesn't have any projects specifically designed to produce clubs outside the rules. "We usually start projects by designing outside the rules and then bring it back within the rules," says Mike Fox, director of global product marketing for Adams. "So do we have the ability to get there? Yes. But we're not looking at it. As far as the industry, I don't think we're too far away. Someone is going to give it a try."

Toulon won't rule out that it will be his company. "I wouldn't say we would tomorrow, but if that's what it takes to get people off the couch and onto the golf course, why wouldn't you?" he says. "We need people to relax and have fun in all aspects of golf. If we keep protecting all these things, we'll end up protecting nothing at all."
