    A Visit To Ben Hogan Headquarters

    The Power Thrusts are a pretty easy to hit iron. Those are a set of 1961’s there. I have the 1960 model which are a little less busy appearance-wise. Great set of irons. The Precisions....aptly named. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Well guys, I’ve decided to move on from my Hogan’s as I’ve put the KZG’s back in my bag. I’ve been on the fence whether I should move these or not, but I hope they can find a good home. Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Iron set with matching TK15 wedges. 11 club set, 23*-63*, all shafted with KBS C-Taper Lite Stiff shafts with Gripmaster Midsize leather wrap grips. 1/2” over standard length. In very good condition just light bag chatter on these. 23* (4-Iron) 27* (5-Iron) 31* (6-Iron) 35* (7-Iron) 39* (8-Iron) 43* (9-Iron) 47* (PW) 51* (GW) 55* (SW) 59* (LW) 63* (LW) $SOLD$

    Wedges and matching to your iron set

    I did that just as a continuation of the design philosophy of the TK15 wedges. Terry Koehler advocates the different shape of the TK wedges is to allow for better ball flight on full swings, so, my thinking was that I should keep the 1/2” increments between wedges, just like my irons. With that many wedges though, I realized my 59* and 63* wedges would be getting pretty short if I went with the 1/2” increments so I decided on 1/4” increments. As I said, in theory, it’s sounds smart to have as many lofts as possible in your wedges, but for me it just felt overwhelming. I had too many choices. I’ve also tried playing my wedges all the same length before as well, didn’t like that at all. Now I’m back to having my sand wedge (old Hogan Sand Iron, I believe it’s 57*) as my highest lofted wedge and I’m more confident in making multiple swings with one club, instead of one swing with multiple clubs.

    Sad news

    Thanks Tony. Grandpa is an incredible guy. I learned the game hitting balls on his farm. He never drank, never smoked, survived a mortar shell in France in 1944, came home and raised 6 kids and farmed in the morning and evening while working another job during the day. I strive to be half the man he is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sad news

    That’s a shame to hear GSwag, but unfortunately, we are all gonna come to a point where our golfing journey ends. I can see how your parents wouldn’t want to spend $700 a month just for a place to eat, so that is definitely understandable as well. My grandfather has hit a similar bumpy road. At 97 years old he was still playing multiple times a week even this past season. Now, he said his balance is getting bad so it is tougher to play. Then, a month ago, my uncle who lived with Grandpa, helping him with his day-to-day activities the most important being his #1 golfing buddy, passed away at 75. Grandpas golfing journey may be coming to an end as well. I hope your dad can still keep in touch and visit with his golfing buddies off the course. Those are important friendships to keep strong, even if they don’t involve golf anymore. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Wedges and matching to your iron set

    I’ve been giving my wedges a lot of thought lately. I bought my Hogan Ft. Worth irons and matching TK15 wedges and put the same KBS C-Taper Lite shafts in all of them. Because the TK15 wedges are just a continuation of the Ft. Worth irons in head shape, I figured I’d build the wedges as similar as the irons. I play my wedges in .25” increments and distances on full swings are 47*- 125yds, 51*- 110yds, 55*- 95yds, 59*- 80yds, and 63*- 65yds. Now with a head design that was very similar to the irons and the same shafts, full swings were easy with these wedges. Where things started to fall apart were around the green. The C-Taper Lites play stiffer than I like for around the greens. I also don’t like having so many options. I like the 4* gaps in the irons, but in the wedges I probably had been happier if I’d gone 47*-53*-59*. I’m building another set of irons, this time with regular flex shafts with a more active tip section, and plan on going with just two wedges after the PW with that set. Just want to simplify a bit, and I’ve been having some wrist and elbow pain increasing lately, so I’m hoping so softer shafts will help remedy that as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. KZG Forged Gap wedge in pretty nice used condition. Looks like it might be CNC milled too. Either way a high quality wedge for $23 shipped. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
