    Some recognizable names there. I'm curious, why is their entire staff comprised of Champions Tour players? Is that on purpose?

    Yes, very much on purpose. We are still working with PGA TOUR guys on the big tour and getting clubs in play out there with CBX fairways and ironwoods, but we wanted the concentration to be on hybrids. And we wanted big names! We knew the PGA Tour Champions was the perfect home for us; the players are very approachable and have seen it all. There are not as many 14 club deals and almost everyone of them is looking for a hybrid to replace a long iron. It was the perfect scenario for us to go out and build a tour staff around our Exotics hybrids.

    I like the strategy. It reinforces that I need to at least try the club. Looks like a trip to a neighboring club is in order.
