I had the chance to chat with Shaun Haberstroh from TaylorMade Golf the other day, and I took the opportunity to ask him questions about the company, their PGA Tour presence, and their latest ball, iron and driver technologies.
In the spring of 1979, a golf equipment salesman named Gary Adams took out a $24,000 loan on his home and founded the TaylorMade Golf Company. Counting him, there were three employees and a single, innovative product: a 12-degree driver cast of stainless steel. This new metalwood looked and sounded different from a wooden wood, and most important, it performed differently.
Adams, the son of a golf professional, was adamant that TaylorMade clubs maintain ties to what true golfers perceived an authentic golf club should look and feel like. They were committed to combining innovation with authenticity, to always be passionate about the game, and pledged to be competitive—to work hard to establish itself and grow.
The same values singled out 30 years ago by Gary Adams are still revered and practiced today at TaylorMade. Since 1979 their mission has remained the same: Create the Best Performing Golf Products in the World.
