Adams Golf Adds Ryan Moore to its PGA Tour Staff
PLANO, TEXAS, November 18, 2010 – Adams Golf (NasdaqCM:ADGF) is proud to announce the addition of PGA Tour champion and U.S. Amateur Champion Ryan Moore to its PGA Tour staff. Moore will play Adams Golf equipment, wear an Adams Golf hat and carry an Adams Golf staff bag.
“We are excited to expand our relationship with Ryan, especially since he has carried some of our clubs in his bag for several seasons now,” said Chip Brewer, Adams Golf president and CEO. “He is an exceptional talent and brings an already impressive record of achievement to our staff. He will be a great ambassador for our brand for years to come.”
Moore is coming off another very solid season in which he finished 32nd on the 2010 PGA Tour Money List with earnings of more than $2.3 million, due in part to six Top 10 and 10 Top 25 finishes in 24 events played. He ranked tied for eighth in Total Driving statistics, which is a combination of driving distance and driving accuracy. Moore’s career achievements include winning the 2009 Wyndham Championship and several impressive victories as an amateur, including the U.S. Amateur Public Links (2002, 2004), the U.S. Amateur Championship (2004), the Western Amateur (2004) and the NCAA Division 1 Championship (2004).
“I’ve been playing an Adams Golf driver and hybrid for the past several seasons and they have remained in my bag because they clearly perform,” said Moore. “The quality and level of technology Adams Golf puts into each and every club was evident from the first time I tried them. I’m excited about joining a company that is committed to developing world-class golf clubs and where I can make an impact.”
Moore is the latest champion to represent the Adams Golf brand, joining the likes of Tom Watson, Bernhard Langer, Aaron Baddeley, Chad Campbell and Yani Tseng. He was born and raised in Washington State and now splits his time between there and the Dallas area, where he recently purchased a home. Moore turned pro in 2005 after graduating from the University of Nevada–Las Vegas and has played on the PGA Tour ever since.
