Adams Golf showcases fourth generation aerodynamics

By Golf Channel DigitalJuly 29, 2010, 7:48 pm
PLANO, TEXAS, July 28, 2010 - Adams Golf announced their newest gineup of products: Speedline 9064LS and 4G Ultra-Lite drivers. As the fourth generation of aerodynamic technology, both drivers are designed to create less drag and airflow turbulence, thereby increasing club head speed and distance for golfers of all types.

Speedline 9064LS Drivers
The patent-pending aerodynamic shaping of the next-generation Speedline 9064LS driver creates less drag and airflow turbulence during the swing, resulting in faster club head speed and up to 15 yards more distance. Design improvements to the 9064LS include improved aerodynamics, a deeper face and increased MOI for more forgiveness. Coinciding with the launch of the 9064LS driver, the new Aldila RIP graphite shafts – Alpha for lower ball flight and Gamma for higher ball flight – will make their first appearance in the retail market with the Adams Golf Speedline 9064 series.
The Speedline 9064LS driver will ship to golf shops beginning August 10 and will offer either the Aldila RIP Alpha or the Aldila RIP Gamma graphite shafts. The suggested retail price (SRP) for the Speedline 9064LS drivers is $479.99.

Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite Drivers
Providing maximum distance for players who benefit from lightweight materials in their clubs, the Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite drivers combine refined weighting in their construction with true aerodynamic technology to deliver increased yardages off the tee.

Weighing in at only 282 total grams, the design features of the Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite drivers have resulted in the lightest driver available to those whose swing speeds gain more distance with a lighter overall club weight.

Also critical to the Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite's performance is its 44-gram Mitsubishi Bassara shaft which also helps generate more ball speed to promote distance.

The Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite is available in two lofts (10 degree and 12 degree) in regular flex. It will begin shipping to golf shops nationwide on August 15 with a SRP of $479.99.

Cabreras take 1-shot lead in Father/Son

By Associated PressDecember 16, 2017, 11:23 pm

ORLANDO, Fla. - Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera and Angel Cabrera Jr. birdied their last three holes for a 13-under 59 to take a one-shot lead Saturday in the PNC Father-Son Challenge.

Cabrera, a Masters and U.S. Open champion, is making his debut in this popular 36-hole scramble. His son said he practiced hard for 10 days. What helped put him at ease was watching his father make so many putts.

''We combined very well,'' Cabrera said. ''When I hit a bad shot, he hit a good one. That's the key.''

They had a one-shot lead over Mark O'Meara and Shaun O'Meara, who are playing for the first time. That included a birdie on the last hole, which O'Meara attributed to the strength of his son.

''My little man hit it 58 yards by me on the 18th,'' said O'Meara, the Masters and British Open champion in 1998. ''It's a little easier coming in with a 6-iron.''

Defending champions David Duval and Nick Karavites rallied over the back nine at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club for a 61. They are trying to become the first father-son team to repeat as winners since Bernhard and Stefan Langer in 2006. Larry Nelson won two years in a row in 2007 and 2008, but with different sons.

''I'd imagine we have to break 60 tomorrow to have a chance to win, but hey, stranger things have happened,'' Duval said. ''I've even done it myself.''

Duval shot 59 at the Bob Hope Classic to win in 1999 on his way to reaching No. 1 in the world that year.

Duval and his stepson were tied with Bernhard Langer and 17-year-old Jason Langer, who made two eagles on the last five holes. This Langer tandem won in 2014.

Jack Nicklaus, playing with grandson G.T., opened with a 68.

Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
