Man o man, Hogan helps the hits coming with MGS, right? I should apply  but Ive already got Hogan gear coming out my wazzoo. But, a great opportunity for 15 people to get an idea of how well the long gear works from Hogan. 

Good luck everyone, and can't wait to see how this whole thing comes together with 15  testers. WOW

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.
