  1. Your handicap

38

  1. Most importantly, what the name “Hogan” means to you

In regards to equipment, Hogan means one thing to me, putting. The only "Hogan" club I have ever carried is an old putter. Yes it looks like a common day Putt Putt putter, but it is still an awesome club that I use regularly.

 

In regards to gold in general, Hogan means....Ben. Ben Hogan will always be an inspiration to golfers for ages. He is a player that most cannot remember what he did specifically, but will never forget the name, and will always have recognition. 

But overall, to me, Hogan means, dependable golf, ageless quality, and just good golf.

 

 

 

 

On a side note, I am not a great golfer, and I need a new set of irons. This would be great for me, and a good test to see if my 38 handicap can be bettered.

I'll reiterate what I said when I was notified... Holy s***! That was literally my first thought. I actually got an email alert while standing in line paying for the Callaway PM Grind wedges I posted

I have a novel idea. Let's focus on congratulating the testers.   This is going to be a pretty cool experience for them and I'm really looking forward to hearing what these guys have to say.  

Bribery, while generally frowned upon in polite society, is perfectly acceptable here    Seriously, there are a TON of outstanding applications.  Hope you guys are enjoying the process. Love readin

Several of us have submitted out initial unboxing to make sure we covered all the wanted criteria prior to posting.  There is a lot of content for 2 guys to review, and they have a timeline they also want to follow.  Some of the testers have gotten to already hit theirs, mine got shipped with Texas's weather included in the box so I haven't gotten mine out yet.  I'll be going to the course tomorrow and I'll get initial impressions on them underway.  Let me just say in advance, the website doesn't do the clubs justice in the looks department.

I was going to hit mine after my round today but I couldn't hit water if I fell out of a boat today. I'm waiting till tomorrow. I do hope the gapping at the bottom end fixes a gap I have currently and that's between my sand and gap wedges. My GW is a 135 club and my SW maxes out at 120, normally is a 115 club.

Since there are 22 pages worth of comments on this thread, I figured this would be the best place to put this out there.

 

To anyone who is waiting and interested in our unboxing/reviews PLEASE interact with the testers during the process! I myself would be more than happy to do some Q&A for people.

 

Information is being gathered and we all have clubs in hand. Feel free to fire away on the new thread in the coming days. I know myself and the rest of the guys would be happy to interact with everyone.

 

I still can't believe I'm in the middle of this. Can't say enough about how much of an honor it is.

 

Fire away guys.

I usually play around 4 to 5 times a week, i carry a modest 5 handicap. I currently play with Ben Hogan Apex 50 irons i purchased in 2004. Ben Hogan to me isn't just a brand, its a long legacy. A legacy of quality,and history. I went with Hogan clubs originally because of the feel and the ability to shape shots. I am currently on my 2nd set of Hogan blades, I have tried other clubs since i bought my apex 50s but can't find anything as consistent and good as Hogan. Hogan isn't just a name its a lifestyle.

Well, the effort was there. The testers were selected 2 weeks ago. But stick around, there are more opportunities coming
