That is one beautiful golf club. What a great price point as well.  
 

Sometimes the enemy of good is better. I cant do better than my Ping G400, but I am interested in following the reviews.

Wish I could sign up for this one.  It's a fantastic opportunity for some of our newer members to get their feet wet with a legitimate driver review.  Seems like there should be a lot more volunteers than what we have currently.

In the 2020 Most Wanted Driver test the Hogan GS53 had a better strokes gained number than drivers from Cobra, Ping, Sub 70, Tour Edge, Wilson, and XXIO.  It had a smaller shot area than Callaway Mavrik, Titleist TS4, and TaylorMade SIM MAX D!

So, I'm not applying, because I have been playing with this driver (and the 3w) since the fall.  I look forward to other testers (and I hope to see this one in this years most wanted tests). My experience is that while it is not the 'longest', nor is it 'the most forgiving', it is good enough at both, that for the price, there are very few, if any options that are competitive..

Interesting that they didn't come out with their new "best performing driver" in time for the MGS driver tests so people could see how it compares against the rest of "what's new for 2020" in the same test setup. I'm guessing that was by "best design" too.
