So the preliminary list is out and it seems to get bigger every year. Word is there are 111 ranked clubs on this years hot list with most of the drivers that I saw receiving gold ratings. The trend in hot fairway metals continues with more innovations geared to adding both higher launch and faster faces to achieve even more distance. Its nice to finally see more manufacturers using authentic O.E.M. shafts in their clubs vs the inexpensive “made-for”, although those certain manufacturers (and we all know who they are) are still using the cheap shafts in their new lines. I will be posting more information on each category hot-list over the coming weeks.
