Martin / Norman, OK

RH player

Handicap: 9.0

i would like to try any of the following:

Hybrid - 18* - Recoil ES 85 F4 Stiff

Driving Iron - UiHi - 18* -  KBS Tour V Stiff 

I’m a horrible fairway wood player so I’ll keep out of that one  

I currently play a 19^, (Cleveland), 21* (Titleist), and 24*(Cleveland) hybrids and want to drop the 24* for a driving iron.

What works best for your long game?  Do you prefer to go for the gusto with fairway woods, or perhaps seek the control of a driving iron, maybe the forgiveness provided by hybrids?  Well the Ben Hogan Golf Company has options available in all three categories.

Nick from San Tan Valley, AZ

I'm right handed

I'd like to try the hybrid with a stiff shaft or the driving iron with the stiff shaft

My handicap is about 20

I currently use a hybrid but I've always been curious about driving irons because I hit my regular irons very well
