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

Carry 4w at 17* loft or 3i at 20* loft.  It would be great to evaluate a hybrid against my current options.

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.
