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

My HoganFit prescription is attached.  The HoganFit process was interesting.  I liked how it compared my current set to what should be optimal.  Another thing that I thought was interesting was that it did not ask for my physical characteristics, e.g. height, like other online fitting systems do.

 

My handicap is about 22.  (I'm fairly new to the game.)

 

To me, Hogan means instant credibility on the course.  He is a legend who knew how to score.  As someone who likes to be a little different, I'd much rather say "I play Ben Hogans" than "I play ".

 

Thanks,

Dan

The word "Hogan" to me is synonymous with hard work. I imagine standing behind Hogan in his Tam O'shanter beating balls for hours. While I have nowhere near that amount of time, I feel like getting these irons would force me to put the work in my game and they would help me see the impact of that hard work..

I'm an 8 handicap.

The Hoganfit process was interesting. I did get to the end and I noticed some things had been converted back to standard (both my length and lie angle). I don't know if that is because the specs on the Hogans are longer and more upright. I would like to see it look a little bit more like the Callaway vip website where you can choose your shaft, grip, and grip size and it makes it pretty much fool proof. Also, I'm not 100% sure that I understand why the gaps are 10-15 yards as opposed to 10 with 4 degree gaps. It worries me a little about the consistency.

What Hogan Means to me?  
 
Hogan is classic, hogan is old school quality.  Ben Hogan is a winner.  These clubs are the embodiment of the same, excellence in steal.  Beautiful and powerful, cutting through the turf and opening the door to excellence.

Handicap: 6-8

Fit Experience: The Hogan Fit description of my game was definitely spot on. I do have a gapping issue with my short irons and definitely have trouble with my distance control in close. The Fit process was easy and straight-forward. Very pleased with my experience.

 

What Hogan Means to Me

Ben Hogan, to me, is the father of the modern golf swing. His legendary ball striking skills and sharp analysis of swing mechanics have defined the process by which most of us learn the game. In no uncertain terms, without Ben Hogan, golf simply is isn't golf as we know it.

 

As for the clubs, one of the first forged clubs I ever hit were the Hogan Apex blades. I love them to death and still have them in my collection. They don't see much playing time these days but I would love to bag the latest collection of Hogans. It would both be a throw back and a leap forward for me as a golfer.

Prescription: Below
 
Handicap: 12

 

Ben Hogan is the stuff of legends. A man of humble origins who rose to greatness, nearly lost his life, and then rose to greatness again. He was one of the greatest ball strikers and competitors in the history of golf. As a brand, Ben Hogan always stood for the best performing equipment for the better player. The new Ben Hogan Ft. Worth 15 irons and TK 15 wedges continue this tradition. I would love to be a forum tester for these clubs. I think that they are beautiful and I love the focus on precision and consistent gaps.

I'm a 4 handicap.

 

The name Hogan makes me think of Trackman before Trackman was even a concept. Hogan dug all the "data" out of the dirt and the Hawk's eyer were the radar. What a stud. 

 

My Hogan fit numbers are below:

I named my son Ace Hogan. I also publish a regional digital golf magazine for a local amatuer golf association. I've played Hogan irons most of my career as a PGA Professional. Current set is almost ten years old from when I was on staff with Callaway just after they purchased the brand and although I've been offered and tried to play other brands, it just isn't the same.

Ben Hogan as a player is the most inspirational and revolutionary character in the game. His 5 Lessons book is basically all a player needs to become very proficient at the game in my opinion. As a tester, I am uniquely qualified to compare new stuff to older stuff due to my decades of experience with the equipment.

I also have two kids who play high school golf whom will have the opportunity to test the iron although the fitting may not be as precise for them it will be good to have various skill level opinions. they play my hand me downs pretty successfully anyway.

As a golf writer I have a week scheduled in Tahoe coming up at the end of the month which will include tons of photos for social media and published content, it would be nice to have a new set to tackle ten or so high-end resort tracks with. I don't know if the timing fits the contest but I've already secured a new Callaway driver to showcase during the excursion.

The photos of the irons look gorgeous and I'm a huge believer in forged cavity backs. it seems that from the fitting site they are building weaker lofts to increase options in the scoring zone. The history of stronger flighted irons is something I have first-hand knowledge of, it hurts scores in favor of boasting about distance.

Let me do this. I need this.

I would love to be included in the testing for these clubs.  From my teens through 3 years ago every round I played was played with Hogan Irons.  I have owned Apex II, Apex Grind, Apex Redlines, Apex PC, Apex Anniversary and the most recent version before Callaway killed the line.  I was so angry when that happened that, to this day I won't use a Callaway club.  Begrudgingly I play another brand now.  I miss the feeling I would get from a Hogan iron with a well struck ball.  There is nothing else like that in the world.  Nothing.  I want to feel that again.

 

My handicap at the moment is an 8 index

Loved the Hogan fitting system, understanding the gaps between each club has reinforced its importance. I Still would prefer to hit the Hogan's V's my own to see ball flight, distance, feel and response. My handicap is scratch.

Hogan to me, represents consistency, persistence, quality and work ethic!

Would like the opportunity to test the new Ben Hogan irons.  Ben Hogan was a legendary golfer and that is all that the name means to me.  I'm however intrigued by the new irons and wedges designed by BenHogan golf.  I have the ability to test the clubs on my CG2 w/HMT launch monitor and compare them to my CB 714's and vokey wedges and other collections of previous MP irons,etc.  My handicap is an 8.  I will give a honest review of how they compare to my Titleist irons, if selected for testing.

My specs are 1/2" long, up 1 degree lie, with midsize grip.

23*,27,31,34,37,41,44,47,51,55,59.

Thanks for the chance to be selected as one of your testers MGS

Thank you for the opportunity!!

What Ben Hogan means to me:  My grandfather taught me to play golf when I was 3 years old. The first club  he handed to me to hit was a cut down Ben Hogan blade. I grew up to question who Ben Hogan was, and he explained that he was the best ball striker ever, and had the perfect golf swing. "The best ballstriker I ever saw" my grandfather said. As I've grown up, I have read every Ben Hogan book that I could get my hand on. Every documentary, every youtube video, and every article I could find. To me, The Hogan name means quality, precision, and the quest for perfection. As I chase a professional career, nothing would make me prouder than using Hogan clubs. They would go perfectly with the Hogan style hat that I wear during tournaments.

As you can see, the lofts of your fairway woods and hybrids, along with your ScratchSB-1 irons and Other wedges do not give you consistent gapping throughout your set. 

If you are playing the right tees, over half of your approach shots will be played inside prime scoring range (tour pros hit 10-12 approach shots a round with an 8-iron or less). But with only 5 Clubs for those all-important scoring range shots, you are not likely to have the precision you need to optimize your game. 

Drawing from our Fort Worth 15 irons and TK-15 wedges, "your Hogans" will re-align your lofts to give you precise distance gapping from your longest iron to your highest-lofted wedge.

What does the name Ben Hogan mean to me?

 

The name represents a feeling, a nostalgia, a mystique. A "Feild of Dreams" representation of where golf came from and what golf used to be.

 

Very interested to see how that name makes its reentrance. Would be excited to try them but even if i'm not chosen I hope they do well.

I'm in. I had a set of Apex 2's back in the day and loved 'em. I just witched from blades (Adams MB2s) to Mizuno MP-15s and, while I like the MP-15s, they just don't feel as solid as the blades did, although they are much more forgiving. If I could find a blade a smidge more forgiving than the Adams, I'd be all in. So pick me!

Handicap index -  4

 

Hogan has always meant to me uncompromising excellence. In everything he did, Hogan did it the right way. He did it with hard work, precision, and focus. He practiced and played with passion and purpose. And most of all, Hogan never made excuses. After his devastating car accident, he was pretty much written off for ever living a normal life again, much less playing competitive golf.  As a physician, one fact, in particular, amazes me about his recovery. Apparently because of the trauma to his abdomen, pelvis and legs, Hogan developed severe deep venous thromboses in his pelvis and legs that necessitated surgeons to tie off his inferior vena cava, the main route of venous return of the lower half of the body. This kept the clots from traveling up into his lungs, which very likely would have been fatal, given his other injuries. While that did prevent potentially fatal pulmonary embolism, it virtually guaranteed him a life of post-thrombotic syndrome. So whenever he was upright for any length of time, his legs would become discolored and swell to such an extent that just walking became incredibly painful. And last I checked, golfers don't do too much without being upright. So he was basically in some degree of discomfort whenever he played or practiced after the bus accident. As someone who encounters this disease regularly, almost nobody with PTS has an active life, much less to the degree that Hogan did. The sheer determination he displayed has always amazed me. So when I think of Hogan, I think of THAT. Sheer, relentless determination in pursuit of excellence. And I could stand to have a little more of that in my golf game. Especially the 'No excuses" part!

Aloha From Hawaii,

 

First off thanks for the opportunity and I truly hope I can test the new Hogan Irons. A little about myself, I am 7.5 handicap who lives in Hawaii and plays twice a week and practices at least once.  When I moved to Hawaii  the golf game definitely suffered but not because I was surfing, because the courses here are so short.  Typical rounds here leave me inside 110 yards on 6 to 8 holes.  I am from Arizona and boy, I learned the hard way that inside of 110 is not my strong suite.

 

The Hogan Fit experience is easy and intuitive and I am curious to see how their recommendation (progression of lofts etc.) translates on a golf course.  It makes absolute sense especially with how short Golf courses are in Hawaii, be precise and attack the pin with more options inside of 160 yards.

 

Hogan Fit.JPG

 

To answer the question of what hogan means to me is easy, it means a lot.  In 2000 when I was playing on my High School golf team my dad got me a set of Hogan Apex forged blades.  They are still in my bag today (see attached photo), no matter what I do I keep coming back to this set.  I have tried Mizuno, Titleist, Fourteen and none can compare to the control, feel and accuracy I get with my apex blades.  I have never loved a set of Irons so much and when I heard Hogan is back my heart raced, because I thought they would never be back.  So needless to say an opportunity to play with a set of these irons gets me way more excited than it should.  I truly hope I get the opportunity to help golf spy review these clubs.

 

Cheers,

What Does Hogan mean to me?   Hogan is golf. To this day a professional with great ball striking is compared to Hogan.  Hogan's thought that a person can become a consistent golfer by "getting in the dirt" is something we all wish we had the time to do.  His book on the Five Lessons of Modern Golf was the first book I repeatedly read cover to cover.  I wish I could become just a small percentage as consistent as he was in his swing.

I am a 7.0 handicap. The Name Hogan means classic golf in it's purist form. The clubs that have his name on them are sure to be something special.  I just wish I could copy his swing to go with the clubs but, these would still be great to take to the course.  Mr Hogan is one of the greatest players to have played the game. He knew how to be a fierce competitor and a gentleman at the same time.  The name Hogan is mythical, renowned, and a giant in golf.
