This stunning deep-blue torched Edel Wedge, hand-engraved by Clyde W. can be yours.

Seriously. We’ve been so overwhelmed (in a good way) by the response that we’ve decided to celebrate the success of ##ThePimpList by giving all of you a chance to own this stunningly beautiful wedge.

If you missed The Pimp List yesterday, you probably should check it out right now.

Once again, here are the details on this one-of-a-kind Edel Golf creation:

How To Enter

1. If you’re not already a subscriber, subscribe to the MyGolfSpy Newsletter (We’ve made it easy…here’s a form:)

2. Name this wedge. Every stunning work of art deserves a name. The Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s David, or for the sake of a solid popular culture reference, Seinfeld’s Golden Boy…not that a t-shirt really qualifies for what we’re going for here, but you get it.

Be Creative, Be Brilliant

And on the off chance you don’t get it; let me spell it out for you. Leave a comment with your original name for this Edel Golf/Clyde W. masterpiece, and if you want to make it a bit more interesting, let us know why you chose the name. Be creative, be funny, and most of all, be brilliant.

Hurry up and enter before we change our minds!

We do have very specific plans for a few of #ThePimpList wedges, but a few of you have suggested that we auction of some of these fantastic wedges for charity. It’s an idea that we’re kicking around, but there are certainly no strings attached to this giveaway.

We Can’t Force You, But. . .

If the eventual is so inclined, we would certainly appreciate a donation to The First Tee, or some other organization of the winner’s choosing dedicated to growing the game of golf.

CONTEST! – Adams Golf “Easy Million” Campaign

CONTEST! – Adams Golf “Easy Million” Campaign

Post image for CONTEST! – Adams Golf “Easy Million” Campaign

Golf Store Owner: OH MY GOD! (in a voice the entire store could hear)…now that’s a first!
GolfSpy X: What’s that?  Oh…wow!  Have to say I’ve never seen that before myself.

After a few more minutes hitting the club I turned back around to take a break.  I hadn’t realized, but there was a crowd that had started to form around the hitting bay without me knowing it.  Kind of like an impromptu OutKast concert popping up out of thin air at the Wooden Nickel Bar back when I was in college.  Problem was, they weren’t there to see me, they were pushing to the front of the stage to see a damn golf club.  Yeah, seriously, this thing was a rock star that night.

Why you ask?  Well…it’s not every day you get to see a hybrid going farther than almost every driver in the store.  I myself had never seen it…and neither had the crowd that was swarming to get their hands on my club.  This hybrid was putting up numbers that exceeded 6 out of the 8 drivers I tested that day.  It had actually outperformed every driver at that point in time (we’re talking about a 300-yard hybrid here).  It wasn’t until the last 2 that it got beat.

:: Spill The Beans!

When I got back to the office I immediately posted this news on Facebook.  First response from a fan?  ”SPILL THE BEANS!  What club was it?”  It’s called the Adams Hybrid Super LS.

Let me start from the beginning.  A few weeks ago I was contacted by Adams Golf, they wanted to chat about their big new marketing campaign, called #EasyMillion.  Prior to the call I had asked if they could send some info along so I could take a look.  Looked like a good enough idea, nothing earth shattering, but definitely a unique spin on a distance claim for a new product that was about to launch.

Anyways…during our conversation I had to make a decision, I always have to ask myself, “is this something the readers really care to read, or is this just one of those thanks for sharing your new concept with us…talk to you soon kinda conversations?”  I thought it was the later, but then I said how about this, “How about MyGolfSpy puts your campaign to the test, head-to-head against what we’re playing now?” With zero hesitation they replied:  Absolutely.  100%.  Yes. A few weeks later myself, GolfSpy Dave, GolfSpy T and GolfSpy Matt had all been fitted up to see how the new Adams Super LS Speedline clubs would do head-to-head against our current gamers.

:: So, What Is The #EasyMillion Campaign?

Hit it. Share it. Wear it.

Everyone has heard of the +17 or 17 + 10 type of campaigns.  Distance claims sell clubs, true story.  But, Adams Golf, has something a little different with their newest distance claim, this one is all about golfer interaction.   Adams new #EasyMillion campaign is a truly unique and experiential marketing campaign, in an effort to allow golfers to gain a cumulative total of 1,000,000 yards of added distance with the company’s new line of SUPER clubs.

They want golfers to compare their new SUPER lineup head-to-head against their current clubs – and then using social media, tell the world how much distance they gained (if you do you get an Adams “Tour” Hat in return for free).  No specific yardage claim here…but let’s just say their pretty confident your gonna gain some distance and often times lots of it.  So, they don’t care whether it’s 10 yards, 45 yards or 105 yards (which they have actually seen) they just want to get the clubs in your hands to show you how big that + sign might be.

Once the golfer goes through the #EasyMillion experience and has their total yardage gained, they then immediately submit that number to the running total at OneMillionYards.com by using their mobile phone (via mobile text messaging) or on any tablet device, laptop or desktop computer.  And you actually get to see your yardage move the needle on the website.  Pretty slick little campaign.

Once the yardage has been submitted you will then be sent your own Adams Golf tour-issued hat, with your unique yardage number embroidered on the side, shipped to your home or office. (VIDEO EXPLANATION BELOW)

:: The MyGolfSpy Test

This test was pretty simple and straightforward, we simply said to Adams and their new SUPER lineup “Show Us The Yardage!”. And to make it even tougher on Adams we made them go up against our current gamers not just some off the rack clubs we picked up from the local “$5 Bargain Barrel Bin”.  They had their work cut out for them.  But, the crew at Adams fit us up for the new Adams gear and the match was set.  There was no turning back now.

:: Adams Golf – Accepts MyGolfSpy’s Challenge

Yesterday, the MyGolfSpy Staff took the Adams Golf #EasyMillion Challenge. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to read yesterday’s article, I will sum it up for you real quick like.  Basically, Adams Golf has a new twist on a distance claim with their 2013 Adams SUPER Lineup.  Instead of saying their clubs will give you XX amount of yards, this time they’re gonna give golfers 1,000,000 yards.

Simply put they are wanting you to hit your clubs against theirs head-to-head and see what yardage you gain, then text that number to Adams Golf that number is then tallied up with people from all over the world at their new site OneMillionYards.com.  Obviously their goal is to hit 1,000,000 yards, their already at 143,000 and this club just came out.  And with the numbers these clubs put up for MyGolfSpy it might get there pretty quick.  In return you will get in the mail the same Tour hat the Adams guys are wearing with your “yardage number” embroidered on the side.   It quick, fun and interactive.

But generally if you make a bold claim, we are pretty certain to put it to the test.  Now while this isn’t an exact yardage claim, the rumors we were hearing about what golfers were actually gaining with these clubs made it a no-brainer for us to call Adams out and get to the truth for you guys.

:: MyGolfSpy (vs) Adams Golf  

THE MATCH: MyGolfSpy staffs current driver, fairway wood, hybrids and irons (vs) Adams SUPER driver, fairway wood, hybrids and irons.

THE PRIZE: Whoever from yesterday guessed the closest to our total yardage gained, is walking away with one of these hybrids!

THE OUTCOME: Below are all the totals.  Want to see exactly what we hit in the challenge? It will be listed at the end of the article.

:: STAFF COMMENTS:

:: The hybrids, particularly the 15* are insane, it’s hard to argue with the result.

:: One of my playing partners actually went and bought the hybrid right after hitting mine.

:: Higher lofts launch insanely high, stay up in the air forever, and land soft.

:: I think that the extra bounce on the irons will help the average golfer.

:: A buddy keeps calling me to “borrow” the driver.  His Tour Burner just ain’t getting it done.

:: The things that impressed me about the irons is how consistent the distance was on mishits.

:: Wow…can’t believe I’m going to say this…I might want a little less distance.

:: I love the deep face and the overall shape.

:: I still hate the white, but this is the first club that makes me think I could get over it.

:: For being a “player’s” driver” it has really solid forgiveness across the face.

:: Hate the hybrid.  Not sure about the 3W.

:: It’ doesn’t have the feel of the Adams drivers I’ve loved in the past.

:: The irons are extremely easy to hit…and long.

:: If you’re looking for a distance iron, the Super S irons are definitely worth a serious look.

:: CUSTOMIZE YOUR WEDGES LIKE NEVER BEFORE

* Details on how to enter contest are listed below.

Up until recently if you wanted to add flare to your clubs with a shaft it had to be graphite.  Problem was…that shaft you had to have because it matched your clubhead or hell who knows maybe even your favorite basketball team most likely wasn’t a good fit for your game.  So, while you thought you and your clubs were lookin’ cool Mr. DukeBlueDevils Fanboy all decked out in your head-to-grip Blue Devil blue, you were spending most of your days with the ticks and fire ants in the woods.

When it came to steel shafts…you could choose from steel-colored or well steel-colored….unless you’re one of those garage tinkerers (RookieBlue) and decided to spray paint your shafts (not recommended). And while nobody was really complaining that steel shafts had limited options when it came to color, customization & personalization is a trend that has and will continue to grow.  So, the leader in steel shaft custom innovation, KBS Shafts, decided to give golfers what they didn’t even know they wanted or needed.

Custom steel shaft color options.

How many?  Well about 1,620 of them.

KBS has built a new online tool for you to do just that. The new KBS CUSTOM LAB offers golfer’s a large pallette of color options from grip to clubhead to help you visualize a brand new set of wedges (featuring KBS Custom shafts). The new software gives golfers total control over designing a custom set of wedges complete with KBS Custom shafts. And oh yeah, you can also laser-engrave them with up to 25 text characters per shaft as well.

:: OPTIONS

:: Choose from 3 different finishes (white, black, silver)

:: Choose from 5 label color options (red, blue, green, orange, and white)

:: Available in three flexes (R, S and X)

:: Optional laser engraving

:: Order online at KBS or at premier KBS dealers
