Why We Like It

Adams Golf did not invent the hybrid, but for a time no company did more to perfect this game-saving club. Adams returns to its roots with a hybrid styled after its best inventions with new enhancements. Its original sole channel (the legendary “velocity slot”) creates extra flexing lower on the face where most average golfers make contact. A new carbon-composite crown lowers the center of gravity and allows for a heel-side screw in the sole for some ever-friendly draw bias.

How To Use Your Hybrid Effectively

Most amateurs don’t swing fast enough to make their long irons go farther than their middle irons, so hybrids are essential for longer shots into greens. Plus, the hybrid’s design adds forgiveness and playability. Here, Cameron McCormick demonstrates how to use these clubs effectively.
