The Metal Driver
Gary Adams and TaylorMade Golf are given a lot of much deserved credit for today's metal driver. Mr. Adams sales and marketing skills put his metal driver and other turbo power golf clubs in the spot light and with modern manufacturing technology allowing it to be produced at a competitive price the golfers world wide scooped up his game improving marvel.
The same could be said for Callaway and their Big Bertha driver in 1991 claiming " the Callaway Big Bertha driver featured a revolutionary change in golf equipment- a large volume club head." The secret was the large head increased sweet spot. This game improving club gave new meaning to the phrase "nice miss", as off center hits were propelled down the fairway instead for turning right or left into the unknown.
However some of the credit they receive is not their due, like credit for the concept.
