What works best for your long game?  Do you prefer to go for the gusto with fairway woods, or perhaps seek the control of a driving iron, maybe the forgiveness provided by hybrids?  Well the Ben Hogan

i see what you did there 😜 But.....800 applications for 15 spots is a lot less of a long shot than 3600 applications for 6 spots for the previous testing! 

A bit of background on this  i’m sure that the fact we stated these clubs are as is with no customizing might be a factor.  The reasoning is these were clubs allocated for Most Wanted Testing,
