Scors going bye-bye?

Recommended Posts

We've seen our beloved Scors get special discounts this fall and we all know that the Hogans are coming.   Today I heard rumors that they've pulled the plug on Scor wedges and in the future you'll have to buy similar V-soled Hogans.

 

Anybody get an email announcement to this effect?

Not yet - but that sure lends credence to the notion that they're all in on Hogan...

I haven't but why not?  So long as it's the same club by a different name and one with greater recognition it makes perfect sense for them to rebrand.

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Yes. True story. Scor is shutting down...well sorta...

 

Terry Koehler, the guy behind Scor has taken over the Ben Hogan brand. When I think all is said and done and the new Hogan stuff hits the market, it's going to look a lot like an extension of the Scor line. I'd venture a guess that Hogan short game clubs will essentially be Scor short game clubs.

 

So yeah...Scor shutting down, but I think it will effectively be reborn as Ben Hogan.

 

We shall see.

I think this is very exciting and am anxious to see how it falls out.  I'm happy for SCOR reborn because the technology works for me and I believe for most golfers.  I'm thinking the Hogan name puts them on the map and allows them to carve out a more significant niche in the market place.

I agree with Rev.....this had to happen so that they could revamp the production for the new Hogans.

 

Should see them by February?

I love my SCORs and would be very interested in Hogans if they carry the same looks and feel as the SCORs. I have the SCOR 9 iron equivalent, so I won't be buying a full set of Hogan irons, most likely 5-8. Would they sell a partial set? Not sure. Somehow they will need to accommodate their loyal SCOR users who bought into the 4161 philosophy that they marketed.

 

Even if the Hogan heads are similar to the SCOR heads, what worries me is that Hogans will not be available with the same shafts and the feel will be different.

That's always the issue isn't it?  That was SCOR's schtick and it's what we were testing here this summer.  Lots of companies have done the combo type set but getting them all to work together has been problematic.  Frankly I've been doing my own combo set for a long time and it's always worked okay for me - I'm betting on SCOR/Hogan to nail it on this one.

I feel Kenny's pain.   I too am looking to build a combo set cause I'm pulling a Heston "pry them out of my cold dead hands" with my current Scors.   When the finish wears off of the ones I've got, I'll buy new old stock on ebay.   That's how much I love them now.   They've only gotten better every month I've hit them.

 

So the question becomes, will the new Hogans be the rest of that combo?   I too will be looking a buying only 4 - 8, max.   I'm sure that Terry and Barry will sell partial sets to their Scor followers, they have their fingers on our pulses.   And they'll have the V-sole, which all who try it love it.   I've also heard a rumor that they'll be sold by the degree! (Although I'll believe that last bit when I see it.)

 

They'll have some work to do to win my business however, because the Srixon z545, z745 and even z945 (JDM) irons are shweeet, have the V-sole, are Endo forged and (at least for me) come in lofts I like.   I don't know if you've noticed lately but the $/Yen exchange rate is so favorable to us right now that you can probably buy JDM irons for less than US prices.

Sad to see this happen but not surprised at the same time. I need to get another wedge to fill in a gap when I make my new irons, so I suppose I'll have to jump on the deal they've got going at the moment.

My fitter, who's a SCOR reseller, told me about this a few weeks ago.  I plan on doing a bag check on my clubs in a few weeks and since my fitter will be adding the Ben Hogan line to his offerings, who knows what I'll be gaming next spring - lol

 

It makes sense to go "all in" on the Hogan brand name and I can only assume the design of the short game clubs will carry over from SCOR to the Hogan lineup.

Before you take it out to the course, take it in to the shop and have it checked for loft and lie.  This is critical because you might get a surprise.  Then have it bent, cut or extended to your specs.   The performance of my Scors shot up 10 fold after I had them adjusted.

I wish we could change the title of this thread. Every time I see a new post and the title comes up, I get anxious that the SCORs are really going bye-bye. I know they will probably just morph into the Ben Hogan line, but I still don't like the title.

I just hope they do a better job spelling Hogan than they did Scor.  Just seems like the wrong anser on a test.  :lol:

How about "Scors saying Sayonara" or "Scors take the dirt nap"  or "Scors dead, Hogan lives again".

 

Anyway you type it, it looks like the end under the Scor name.

I went with their recommendations for shaft, length, and lie. For lofts they recommended 60*, 56*, 52*, 48* and 44*. I didn't go with those because I didn't want more than 58*. I've ended up with the 58*, 54*, 50*, and 45* and they continue to exceed my expectations.
