4. Brendon de Jonge
5. D. J. Trahan
6. Davis Love III

a. Select a simple random sample of three of these players to assess their opinions on the use of long and belly putters. Use random numbers from column 2 of Table 7.1 to make your selection.

b. Using the information in the third item in the Notes and Comments section, determine how many different simple random samples of size 3 can be selected from the list of 10 players.
