Ryan Moore Leaves Scratch Golf to Join Adams Golf, Loses Ownership Stake
Neither Scratch President Ari Techner nor Moore, the No. 42 player in the Official World Golf Ranking, gave a reason for the split.
“I’m excited about joining a company that is committed to developing world-class golf clubs and where I can make an impact,” Moore, 27, said in a statement released by Adams. Terms of the agreement weren’t disclosed.
The former U.S. Amateur champion has used a driver and hybrid club made by Plano, Texas-based Adams for several years. He switched to Scratch irons and wedges before 2010 after playing most of the 2009 season without an equipment sponsor.
Two months after reaching an agreement with Moore last November, closely held Scratch hired Don White, Jack Nicklaus’s former clubmaker, to build its custom clubs. White will continue to work for Scratch, the company said.
