  1. Any thoughts on how it plays distance wise and flight characteristics compared to your 59 and 51?  Gaps OK?

     

    I'll see how it does out on the course, but from hitting a few balls after work yesterday its playing very similarly to my SCOR 55* in terms of flight and distance. A smooth shot is right in the 105-108 yards carry for me leaving a nice 8 yard gap between my wedges. As far trajectory, it's probably close to my 51 than my 59. My stock wedge shots tend to be on the mid-low side but I have enough control to throw it super high up in the air when I need to. 

     

    I'll see if I can post a more in-depth review this weekend.

  2. Wow Slammy what a saga.  Glad is was resolved and had a happy ending.  I have to say that you're more patient than I am.

     

    Thanks mate, most of my patience was founded in the superb performance of the other 3 SCOR wedges I have and am using.    

     

    That said, a little disappointed overall in the fact that it took 2 months to get a club back for an assembly error. I've been thinking about an upgrade from the MP-60's I have right now to either the MP-15's or an MP-25/MP-5 Combo set in the fall. The Hogan's were in the mix for a demo but I'm leaning on no due to the bad taste that yet lingers in my mouth. If I can get a trial set of 3 clubs I'll give them a try but there's no way I would drop the money to get a set blind like they are currently offering. 

     

    If there's one thing I really like about the TK wedge so far, it's the feel of the Lamkin grip they use. It's soft without being squishy and super tacky. Regardless of what I end up thinking about the club, I'm probably going to get the Lamkin ACE 3GEN's on my set next time I regrip.

  3. Good news!!!! My quest has finally come to an end. BH didn't have any SCOR heads laying around so they built me a 55* TK 15 wedge and it arrived today. I'm excited to see how it performs in relation to my existing SCOR wedges, it looks pretty close in design so I'm hopeful it will be a seamless flow through my wedges.

  4. Update:

     

    I thought things were resolved a few weeks ago when I finally got in touch with BH. They said there were going to send me out a replacement club. It's been two weeks now and I haven't gotten anything in the way of communication or mail from them. 

     

    One of the forum members was kind enough to give me an alternate contact within BH so I'm going to try working through them.

     

    I'd like to give the BH irons a try but all this is making me seriously reconsider whether that's a good idea or not. 

  5. I just got a resolution from them a few hours ago. They claim their returns department never received my club which is weird because I got updates from Fedex to my phone until it delivered back to BH golf. Fedex doesn't seem to keep the shipping labels and tracking numbers available after a certain period of time (30+ days). I forwarded my original Fedex email to BH so they can hopefully figure out what happened. At some point along the way it got lost (I suspect someone in the returns department mishandled it) and are they making me a replacement club to ship out right now, so I do appreciate the effort to make things right. 

     

    That said, the thing that bothers me the most is that I've had to be the one doing all the follow up communication to fix their defective club assembly. Maybe I have high expectations, but I was hoping someone would follow up with me periodically while I represented an unresolved customer service complaint. If I hadn't been persistent, it seems likely that I never would have gotten my club back.

     

    The funny thing is that I love the Scor Wedges I do have so much that I'm still pretty excited to read the reviews from the guys here at MGS on the BH Irons and may still consider getting a set in the future. I just know now to go ahead and void the warranty by doing work on them myself....I'd rather not go through the trouble of sending clubs back to them again. 

  6. TLDR: I'm hoping someone here can put me in contact with someone at Ben Hogan Golf to help me find a missing Scor Wedge that had an assembly/manufacturing error. I haven't been able to get a response from anyone.

     

    Fully Story: Back in late April I finally decided to pull the trigger and get a set of 4 Scor wedges (47,51,55,59) and I've really enjoyed playing with them. Unfortunately, when my 55* wedge was shipped to me it had something loose in the hosel/shaft that caused it to make noise and produce weird vibrations when I hit it. I had the clubs for about a week (late June) by this point, emailed Scor/BH and got a phone call from customer service the next day. We talked through the problem and I was told to pack my club up in the box and that the returns department would send me a shipping label. This was the first hang up.....I waited 3 days before contacting my Scor/BH POC because someone had forgotten to send me a shipping label. I finally got my shipping label on 3 June and was able to ship my club the next day. I followed the tracking number and saw that it arrived in Texas on the 8th. Now I started to patiently wait for news of my beloved SW. 

     

    Fast forward to 24 June and I'm emailing my POC at Scor/BH asking where my club is and when I can expect to get it back. A week goes by with no response and I see that the Scor website is shut down so on 1July I tried the contact request form for BH and again got no response. I tried calling during business hours late on the 2nd and early today and couldn't get anyone to pick up. Needless to say I'm a little disappointed in this whole thing and I just want my club back.....I don't even care if they fixed it, I'll do the work myself at this point. The MSG community is reviewing the BH FT15 Irons right now so I'm hoping someone out there might be able to put me in touch with someone who can help me.

     

    If anyone from BH/Scor reads this my Scor Order number was 17408 for reference. 

  7. I'm wondering if anyone got the chuckle out of this that I did....I've always found comparing heads of different lofts on different shafts to be of limited usefulness. They also included a weird mix of club, they didn't have anything from Ping or TMG which I think is a problem because it's hard for people to know how different heads might compare without a reference to something they've hit before.

  8. I don't anyone likes it when people yell things right after impact. The players probably don't like it, the vast majority of the spectators don't like, the commentators don't like and people watching at home don't like it. At one point once upon a time, yelling things might have been funny....that time has long passed. That said, it's hard to stop people from yelling things without taking some of the energy away from the tournament atmosphere. In an ideal world, people would have some sense to know when it's alright to make some noise and when it's not.....additionally they would have some sense to know what kind of noise to make. The PGA tour and the tournament officials don't want to be in the position of having to make judgement calls about people being stupid, but that's exactly what they have to do. 

     

    Presently, I think it's a little hard on the players to be expecting a loud yell immediately at impact. It shouldn't be a big factor for them, but it's a distraction that shouldn't be there.

  9. I think it's a mix of both. I usually warm up with the Tour Tempo app and some wireless headphones every time at the range before I get going. It's the glue that binds my game together. I've also been scrambling for a little better that 50% on average, I can get within 6 feet of the hole most of the time around the greens and at least give myself a makeable putt....

     

    The assessment I've gotten elsewhere working with my friends and on other forums is that I'm quite lacking in lower body action. I'm probably giving up quite a bit of distance by limiting my hip roation...an interesting thought because I'm not exactly lacking for distance as is. I think I could stand to rotate my right arm a little more freely in the backswing to keep the clubface on plane. I'm probably going to work on transitioning to a little more neutral grip in the future to see if I can mitigate my misses left, I'll experiment with that and see what works. 

     

    I have a small tournament this weekend, I'm going to start playing around with stuff in my swing after that. I'm going to try and keep a practice journal so I have some continuity from day to day. I'm ok with sucking for a while, I've gotten to where I am in golf on the back of my short game anyway....

  10. I would be honored to be considered as a tester for this contest and feel I would provide a detailed and informative review of the clubs.

     

    Hogan Fit Prescription: See Dropbox link

    Handicap: No official handicap, unofficial 7-9 depending on calculator and courses I frequent

    What Hogan Means to me: For me, Hogan clubs will always be associated with quality irons.  I can't separate the image of Hogan clubs from the image of the Ben Hogan himself grinding away for hours on the practice tee trying to dig up the secrets of golf in dirt.  

     

    I practice at the course 2-3 times a week with approximately 18-27 holes thrown in of actual play now that the weather is improving here in northern Florida.  I think I'll have a good basis for comparison as I've been gaming a set of MP-60's for about 4 years. I recently made the transition to SCOR golf wedges and am excited to see how the v-sole carries over into the other irons.
