Testers ANNOUNCED (15) Ben Hogan Long Game


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

David - Lexington, KY

Right Handed

First Choice - VKTR+ Hybrid R-Flex

Second Choice - UiHi Driving Iron R-Flex

Current Handicap is an 18.

I’ve struggled to find a club that fills the long iron & fairway wood spots.  It’s currently an Acer XDS Machete 18*.  But it’s very inconsistent for me and I seem to get better results from hybrids.

Thanks!

Good luck to everyone, just remember it is a LONG SHOT.

😎

i see what you did there 😜
But.....800 applications for 15 spots is a lot less of a long shot than 3600 applications for 6 spots for the previous testing!

Yes true but what percentage of the 3600 did you throw away immediately vs the 800 in this thread? Lol

Hello, I realize I may be late here but please let me know if this is still available. I have 2 private memberships in Canada and I work for a golf company. I would love to test your clubs, would even share them on social. Let me know please.

Thanks,
