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 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. These four tenets would take them far. The same values singled out 30 years ago by Gary Adams are still revered and practiced today at TaylorMade Golf as they continue to deliver products that help players of all skill levels reach their potential. Since 1979 their mission has remained the same: Create the Best Performing Golf Products in the World.
