Josh is just starting a round of golf. He is yards from the first hole and needs to decide which club to use for his first shot. He has kept careful records of how close his first shots came to the hole, all from this same distance. His records include data from his use of two different golf clubs, a -wood and a -iron, over the past year.

Use the histograms below to advise Josh which club to use. (The scale on each - axis is the same.) Explain your reasoning.

You want Josh to use the club that gets him closest to the hole more often.
