Early life and career
Adams was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, but only lived there for two months. His family moved to Dalton, Georgia, where he lived until he was sixteen years old. After his mother remarried, he moved to Eatonton and graduated from Gatewood School, and enrolled at the University of Georgia in Athens.
2007–09: Nationwide Tour
Injuries have plagued Adams throughout his career and he bounced around on the mini-tours until he joined the Nationwide Tour in 2007. In his first full season in 2007, Adams made only 5 of 16 cuts and earned just $23,270.
In 2008, he made 7 of 11 cuts, playing a limited schedule. He had one top 10, earned $63,701, and obtained his full-time Nationwide Tour card for 2009.
Adams had a breakout year in 2009, with seven top-10s between May and August, including a career high finish of solo second place in Canada at the Ford Wayne Gretzky Classic. In September, he led the Boise Open by four shots after three rounds, but finished again in solo second by a stroke, earning $78,500. Adams earned $399,749 in 2009 and finished third on the Nationwide money list. He shattered the Nationwide Tour's record for single season earnings without a victory; his successful 2009 season secured him a promotion to the PGA Tour for the 2010 season.
2010–present: PGA Tour
After a top-10 finish in February at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Adams' first notable success came at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Texas in May 2010; he finished in a three-way tie for second by two strokes, albeit following a disappointing double bogey on the 72nd hole. This result earned him $485,333 and put his winnings over $820,000 for the season, which moved him from 118th to 47th on the 2010 money list, and secured his PGA Tour playing privileges for 2011.
Adams, along with a few other PGA Tour hopefuls, was featured on a NBC special "Ticket to the Tour", which aired on January 2. Adams hosted the weekly "Inside the PGA Tour" on January 12 and was featured in the March 2010 issue of Men's Journal magazine.
Adams lives in Swainsboro, Georgia with his wife and two children.
