Four times Tour winner and world ranking 18th golfer in the world, Baddeley was recently released from a signing with MacGregor last Autumn. Baddeley will sport an Adams golf cap and carry a tour golf bag, whilst using Insight 3 and 5-woods – additional Adams clubs will be introduced to his arsenal of junior left handed golf clubs throughout 2008 – Adams will contemplate adding its blade golf irons to its produce portfolio to align its corporate image with that of its latest signings and to inspire consumer confidence in the brand. Adams as a brand of golf equipment has been perceived as a junior / novice golfer’s brand, and not that of a brand for golfers.
Adams Golf has reportedly had talks with over 6 high profile PGA tour players before it closed deals with Rory Sabbatini and Aaron Baddeley – there is no immediate plan to further increase its pool of highly skilled player’s.
