Adams Golf Speedline 9032 Drivers
2009 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships
PLANO, TEXAS, November 3, 2009 – Adams Golf (NasdaqCM:ADGF): Adams Golf is proud to announce that its Speedline 9032 drivers won the Open, Senior and Super Senior divisions of the 2009 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship this past weekend. Canadian Jamie Sadlowski, a member of the Adams Golf Long Drive Team, won his second consecutive RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship in Mesquite, NV playing the Speedline 9032 driver. Sadlowski beat out 143 other competitors to be crowned the best long driver in the world when he followed up drives of 411, 404 and 401 with a winning 384-yard drive in the final round. Long Drivers of America (LDA) Hall of Fame member Bobby Wilson re-wrote long drive history by winning the world championship title in both the senior (ages 45+) and super senior (53+) divisions of the competition. Like Sadlowski, Wilson used a Speedline 9032 driver to claim his two titles over the weekend with drives of 362 and 370 yards.
“The Speedline driver was critical to my success this year on the competition grid,” said Sadlowski. “To be crowned long drive champion, it’s all about distance and the Speedline 9032 certainly delivered for me this year. The aerodynamic technology that is loaded in that driver definitely gave me an advantage during the competition.”
“We could not be more proud to have Adams Golf drivers sweep all three divisions of this year’s competition,” said Chip Brewer, President and CEO of Adams Golf. “To be associated with such exceptional athletes as Jamie and Bobby is definitely an exciting moment for all of us at Adams Golf. Our research and development department has put a lot of effort into designing the longest driver in golf and we are thrilled to see the definite results it delivered at the world championships.”
About Speedline drivers:
Designed with advanced patent pending aerodynamic shaping, Speedline drivers create less drag and airflow turbulence resulting in 3-4 MPH higher club head speed. Backed by data from the Oran W. Nicks Low Speed Wind Tunnel at Texas A&M University and in consultation with aero-physicists, Adams Golf engineers created a patent pending design for Speedline that includes an aero-shaped crown, heel and toe scoops, and improved face-to-body transition, all of which minimize drag and improve airflow around the head. Further Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) testing proved that the advanced Speedline driver design performed with attached and efficient air pressure on the body, thereby increasing club head speed.
