In 1979 golf equipment salesman Gary Adams took out a $24,000 loan on his home and founded the TaylorMade Golf Company.
He originally only sold one item, his newly invented and innovative product, a 12-degree driver cast of stainless steel.
Now the company focuses on the golf equipment market in general, producing golf clubs, balls, and clothing. Starting with $47,000 in sales in 1979, TaylorMade eventually reached its first billion dollars in revenue in 2006.
The same values singled out 30 years ago by Gary Adams are still revered and practiced today at TaylorMade as they continue to deliver products that help players of all skill levels reach their potential.
