Ben Hogan already selling balls and accessories?

Recommended Posts

Well, hit me with a shovel and wake me up!   I did not know that Ben Hogan (through Perry Ellis) is already selling balls, gloves and other accessories.

 

I haven't seen them anywhere in my stomping grounds yet and it looks like Kohl's is the only place you can actually get them -- through their online store.   The balls are Surlyn cheapies only.   But does this mean we'll see a good urethane for 2015?  If so, I'll definitely hit it.  I used to love the older Hogan balls.

Has anybody actually hit them or does anyone know who makes them for Hogan/Ellis?

 They were selling these around a year ago on the PGA Superstore website - the lines, 2-piece distance, 2-piece soft and a 3-piece ball.  Bought a dozen of each to try --- kinda liked the 3-piece ball. A bargain at $20/dozen.

We have b!tched for years about Callaway killing the Hogan Brand but the Hogan Tour Deep ball was what Cally wanted. It was the ball that was the basis for all Callaway tour balls. The i and ix and iz and the others.

 

Of course the Hogan Tour Deep was just the premium Top Flight ball and there is no reason to suspect that any new ball will be anything like older Hogan balls.

I've tried and played the Master Grip (MG) Tour C4 Urethane and they are fantastic balls. And at $19.99/dz. how can you go wrong? Anyway... I think I read somewhere perhaps here on MGS that these balls were some kind of former Hogan ball. Did I dream that? If I didn't have 5-6 dozen balls already in stock in my golf closet I'd purchase a few dozen of these. Probably will this summer sometime. Oh, and have you tried their gloves? Can't beat um.

Picked up a dozen of the Hogan 3 piece soft and 15 of the Hogan 2 piece soft from Kohls tonight. Also ordered a glove and a couple pair of shorts on clearance.....got free shipping.

 

Will try them out over the winter.

The gloves look fine.  The apparel is REALLY GOOD FOR THE PRICE!   I'll bet the balls will be fine too.  

 

Heck, if you threw a urethane cover on that 3 piece, you'd have as good a ball as the Top Flite Gamer Tour, wouldn't you?   (And the Gamer Tour is pretty dang good for the money.)  Could the Scor/PE folks do this?   Of course they could.  The Balls' production is subbed out anyway.   There aren't that many ball manufacturing plants in the world as it is, so much is subcontracted.   The MG C4 balls are subbed, as is every other small brand. 

 

Heck, I believe Nike's actually commercial production is still pumped out by Bridgestone, although they do all their own R&D work in house.  I'll bet these Hogan balls are made in the same Taiwan factory that makes the Wilson balls.   Take a look on the Box Foz and tell us what you see when you get yours.

The Hogan Edge, 2 piece soft ball is a very durable ball. Distance and performance is like a Q Star or NXT Tour S.......but at half the price! I was 7 for 7 getting out of the bunkers last week, leaving decent putts.

      Ben Hogan Ft. Worth Black Irons
       
      In the words of Peter Wolf - don't touch the knobs 'cause I think we're gonna have some fun with this one....
       
      ​This year marks the 65th anniversary of the Ben Hogan Company. The brand has has plenty of ups and more than its share of downs, but it's still with us and as a brand, it still maters.

      TESTERS WANTED:
       
      The Ft. Worth Black, with its rugged Diamond Black Metal finish, is most definitely a player's iron. It's a 1025 forged blade, and Hogan says it gives the better player the feel, accuracy and consistency his or her game demands.
       
      We're looking for 5 of you to test the Fort Worth Blacks and let the MyGolfSpy Community what you think!

      From today's InBox -- very similar the Bridgestone's program.  Seems like a smart move as Hogan continues to inch forward...
       
       
      Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company Launches Club Demo Program 
      _______________________________________________________________________________
       
      FORT WORTH, Texas, January 3, 2018 -- Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company, LLC, manufacturer of premium golf clubs and golf bags, announced today it has launched a Demo Program to allow golfers to try its premium line of golf clubs before they purchase.
       
       
      "We understand that many players want to touch, feel, hold and, most importantly, hit new golf clubs before buying them," said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf. "We are completely confident that when golfers compare Ben Hogan irons or hybrids to their current clubs, or other clubs they may be considering for purchase, they will prefer premium Ben Hogan products."
       
      In recent months, the Company reorganized and implemented an innovative 'factory-direct' distribution and pricing strategy. The Company remains committed to producing the best-performing and best-feeling golf equipment in the world, and now sells Ben Hogan Golf Equipment direct-to-consumers exclusively online at www.benhogangolf.com. This distribution model allows the Company to offer serious, avid golfers the high-quality Ben Hogan products they have come to expect from the Company at factory-direct prices with no retail mark-up.
       
      The Demo Program is simple and easy and provides golfers with the opportunity to try Ben Hogan products at no risk or obligation. The golfer can choose the model(s) and shaft they would like to try from the drop-down menus shown on the website. At this time, demo availability is limited to products with 'stock' lengths, lies and grip specifications.
       
       
      The customer's credit card will be charged only $20.00 for round trip shipping, and a deposit will be held on the card until the clubs are returned. A pre-paid UPS Ground return label will be included in the box. The golfer has fourteen days from the date of order to try the clubs, then return them to the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. Demo club availability will change on a daily basis.
       
      According to White. "We know that serious, accomplished golfers understand technology and appreciate the performance of our award-winning clubs, and we are pleased to give them the ability to easily demo our clubs to determine which model works best for them. Unlike other scenarios where clubs are hit into nets or at a manufacturer-specific Demo Day, we want to give the golfer the ability to test our products at his/her leisure, at their own course or range. We want to make this process easy and minimize any stress like high-pressure salespeople and Tech Reps."

      I was told by SWMBO that some of the the golf equipment clogging up my garage has to go. It's not easy letting go, but I thought I'd give the fellas at MGS first crack.

      First up is my '99 Hogan Apex/Apex Plus flow set. These are legit. They have spined TTDG S300's and mixed grips. Set is Apex blades from 7-E and Apex Plus cavity irons from 4-6. I'd call the condition a solid 7/10. Grooves are clean. These have the normal bag chatter that you would expect from a nearly 20 year old set of forged irons.

      Sold
      Asking $100 +10 to cover some of the shipping.

      I'll add more as I get time.
       
       
      I also need to find a home for a couple of putters that do not get along with me.
       
      One is a 34.5" Evnroll ER1. This club is great. Just not for me. I cannot get used to the speed. Condition is a very solid 9/10. Comes with headcover, but no ball marker. (fell off mid round)
      SOLD

       
      I am after $250 + $10 to help cover shipping. PM me with questions.
       
      The last thing I have for now is an MLA Tour Mallet.
       
      35" in nearly new condition. There are no weights. I lost them. Sorry. Replacement weight kits are available from MLA for $30.  Comes with headcover.
       

       
      Looking for $125 + $10 for shipping.  
       
       
      Thanks for looking!!!
