The second largest manufacturer of golf clubs in the United States, Taylor Made Golf Co. designs and markets a complete line of clubs for men, women, and children, as well as golf accessories and golf bags. Taylor Made scored its initial success with its first product, metal drivers, which debuted in 1979 and subsequently dominated the golf market. With its focus on research and development and aggressive marketing, the company grew to be the second largest U.S. golf manufacturer by the mid-1990s, a ranking attained because of the popularity of its Burner Bubble drivers, introduced in 1995. In 1997 Adidas AG acquired Salomon, Taylor Made’s parent company, thereby creating Adidas-Salomon Group. Taylor Made was organized as a wholly owned subsidiary of Adidas-Salomon Group. Headquartered in Carlsbad, California, Taylor Made had operations in Japan, Great Britain, New Zealand, and Canada.
