THP is going to start the 2010 year off with a bang and do a NEW DRIVER SHOOT OUT. THP Shoot Out formula is a simple one. Take the drivers from each company and let consumers try them out and measure things such as distance, accuracy, look, and feel with certain categories being weighted more heavily because in the end, it is about performance.
Over the next few weeks, you will “get to know” the participants as we will be posting bios and interviews of the golfers testing the equipment. Every shoot-out is broken down into handicap groups with low, mid, and high handicaps all being represented so consumers can identify with the appropriate group. Not a single tester in the shoot-out platform is affiliated with THP or an equipment company. Strictly volunteers in the local area and if you are in our area, contact us to become involved in future Shoot Outs.
We have sent invites like we always do, to all the top drivers out there. Here is a list of our invites we have sent.
* Denotes that they have already accepted the invitation and are sending drivers in for this huge event.
We will keep you updated on how this is shaping up and currently we have a tentative date set for Mid-January to do all the testing.
If you want to see a company invited that is not on the list or have any questions as to how these are done, please do not hesitate to ask and we will get an invite right out to them.
The new Bridgestone e7 golf ball will be used for every single swing and every shot will be measured using Bushnell GPS and Rangefinders for the ultimate in precision.
This is shaping up to be our biggest DSO (Driver Shoot Out) that THP has ever done and we think that everybody will enjoy reading about how the new 2010 products fare overall. Most of the drivers in this event will be pre-release and the companies are really looking forward to get consumer feedback and reader feedback on every club that is scheduled to be tested.
