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.

Peter

Farmingdale NJ

Right handed

1 handicap

preference 1: 18* driving iron stiff shaft

Preference 2: 14* 3wood with stiff shaft

 

Current setup is 3w, 2hybrid and 3iron.  Means i had to take out a wedge. Would love to combine the hybrid and 3iron into one driving iron to get my wedge back in the bag.  I like the look of an iron much more than hybrid and used to play a mizuno Fli-hi driving iron that was my go to for many years.
