Red Honored with Prestigious Gold Medal in Golf Digest’s Annual “Hot List” Awards
(Carlsbad, Calif.) – Adams Golf, makers of the No. 1 hybrid on the PGA TOUR since 2008, announced the arrival of the new Red hybrid. The benchmark product in the Adams stable, Red delivers players of all abilities an appealing, confidence-inspiring shape with proven performance. Red’s versatility delivers on what golfers need, when and where they need it. Shot-shaping properties make it easy to find optimal ball flight (draw, fade, low, high), while sole, crown and head features deliver easy launch conditions for Tour players and amateurs alike.
All in, the recipe for Red is simple:
· Adams has bucked the trend set by many of today’s hybrids, which in the endless search for distance, have grown larger and larger in size. Instead, engineers placed the focus on versatility, utilizing a smaller head (95cc) that can handle a wider variety of difficult shots and make them easier to hit from all conditions.
· Adams’ patented upside-down head design brings the CG lower, promoting easier launch and greater demand from all lies, increasing playability and inspiring player confidence.
Together, these two features produce an attractive head with Adams’ classic distinctive toe-shape that is long, forgiving and easy to launch. But, there’s more:
· To keep ball speed fast, even on off-center hits, Red utilizes Adams’ trusted and proven Velocity Slot TechnologyTM on the sole and Ghost Slot TechnologyTM on the crown.
· As an extra benefit to those seeking maximum shot-shape options, three transferrable weights on the sole (one 25g & two 2g) can be configured to promote the flight that works best.
The result of these ingredients is Red: an aesthetically pleasing hybrid that will work for the golfer to make the game’s difficult shots easier.
“Adams Red is golf's next great hybrid from our company,” said Brian Bazzel, Senior Director, Product Creation. “To be able to pack so much into such a beautiful shape and deliver performance, I was blown away seeing and hitting it for the first time. After seeing Red in testing with players of varying ability, we’re confident it will resonate not only with amateurs, but also meet and exceed expectations for the best players in the world."
Adams Golf Tour staffer Aaron Baddeley tested the Red Hybrid in early January, raving about its aesthetics and playability and foresees putting into his bag in the short future.
“Red is the total package,” said Baddeley, three-time PGA TOUR winner and Adams brand ambassador. “It’s consistently long, it's versatile and I’ve never felt more confident and comfortable with a hybrid in my hands."
The Adams Red Hybrid will be available in five different lofts (16°, 18°, 20°, 23° & 26°) beginning April 17 at an MSRP of $229.
