POTSDAM -- Entrepreneur, innovator and author Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf and a member of Clarkson University’s class of 1962, will discuss how technology led to revolutionary innovation in one of the oldest games in the world at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, in the Multipurpose Rooms of the Student Center on Clarkson’s Hill Campus.
Adams is the inventor of the ground-breaking Tight Lies fairway wood. His company today produces the most played clubs on the PGA tour.
He will speak about marketing a brand to the legends of golf, and how passion for the sports, team projects and games he plays led to building a multi-million dollar company.
Adams, a three-sport student athlete at Clarkson, will be on campus to be inducted into Clarkson’s Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday night during the Golden Knights men’s ice hockey match vs. Princeton.
Refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
