*HOT LIST JAPAN
A panel of 30 testers who perform hitting tests on the latest golf clubs sold in Japan (from April 2015 through April 2016) in accordance with the rules and judging methods stipulated in regulations laid down by GDO judges. The panel comprises four experts with an in-depth knowledge of golf clubs, golf gear writers, and other golfing retail personnel well-versed in golf who are designated as "special judges," as well as skilled golfers with a handicap of between 0 and 20. Fields for evaluation include "performance," "ease of positioning, hitting feel, hitting sound, and design," "innovation," and "demand." Clubs receive gold or silver awards in driver, fairway wood, utility, iron, wedge, or putter categories, with places being decided based on overall points received. Inaugurated in 2012, HOT LIST JAPAN was run for the fifth time in 2016.
