Yep, that's it.  It is probably me but it find it very distracting.  When i feel i am square (club face to ball) and look up, I'm way off.  When i get lined up square with feet and shoulders and put the club down, it looks really shut.

I ended up opening up the face one notch on the adapter which made the face sit square for me.  I thought the default setting looked closed as well.

Sound clip might have to wait a bit... Funny enough I'm currently in the hospital with my wife as she's giving birth to our first child. I'll be a new baby boy's father hopefully by tomorrow! 

THE Ben Hogan GS53 Driver Review – July 4th, 2020  by 03TRDBlack Intro Follow me on my Instagram! @rob.c.slade  Also on Twitter @robslade. First and foremost, I want to th

the iconic swing is timeless... the company he founded in 1953 is committed to living up to Mr. Hogan's philosophy; they manufacture clubs 'as near perfect as modern-day tools can perform'.

I've been playing a set of Hogan Fr Worth Irons in black for a couple  years now and am wanting a set of the new black Icon irons.  These drivers and fairway woods have peaked my interest.  They are a good bit less expensive than current offerings from Ping or Taylor made, they look great and...well I want some!

Got another round in with the Hogan driver today and was able to compare it using Shot Scope to a borrowed Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero.  A buddy of mine let me use his Mavrik Sub Zero head and I put it onto a shaft I was fit into with an Epic Flash Sub Zero.

I hit the Hogan on the front 9 and hit the Mavrik on the back.  The Hogan is shafted with the Hzrdus Smoke 65 6.0 and the Mavrik was shafted with a Fujikura Speeder 661 TR Stiff.

Hogan GS53 Front Nine:

270
248
261
269
261
267

AVG:  262.66

Callaway Mavrik Back Nine:

258
250
261
287
257
312 (downhill)

AVG: 270.83

It's obvious that playing different holes with different drivers won't give perfect side by side results but the course was very busy and I couldn't hit two tee shots off of every hole.  The Hogan and I are really starting to bond and it's really starting to show how consistent it is.  I didn't get out of play one time on the front nine and the driving distances were very consistent.  I hit a few wild shots with the Mavrik and a few bombs but lost 2 balls (right) which I didn't like.  The average with the Callaway was slightly longer but the shot I hit 312 was downhill and skewed the average.

People often and easily fall in love with the one or two bombs they may hit during a round with a driver but I'm more concerned with a driver that is super reliable and predictable which the Hogan is proving itself to be.  I get very consistent distance, ball flight and shot shape with it over and over.

I also got another 18 holes in with the Hogan driver. It still does the rattle intermittently, but I talked to the customer service at BH and they sent me a return shipping label to check out the issue. I have immense confidence with this club each time I hit it. On two instances on short par 4’s yesterday (305 and 312) yards I nearly drove the green with just a short 20-30 yard pitch left in. I was even able to attack a par 5 in two which left an eagle putt which is something I haven’t been able to do much before... (of course then I three putted 🤣). It has such a consistent ball flight with a nice high draw when hit well. This club can do it all even when I tee’d it low to hit a stinger into a stiff wind. So far, I’m loving this driver and if I had an early prediction, YES it’s staying in my bag!

I agree with this. Played 18 yesterday and did have a chance to hit two drives on a few holes.  While I hit my Titleist driver further on average, I am finding myself more consistent with the HOGAN driver.  Also played around with the setting Friday night until the driver looked square at setup.  I set up much easier yesterday and I still love the feedback the Hogan gives.  The sound is a perfect blend between too muted and too loud.  The feel is amazing.  I also am finding a more consistent flight and i am hitting it higher, which i like for total carry distance.  I am still finding (for some reason i cannot explain) the ball marks on the face are slighter higher than center.  I would rather hit a driver higher in the face than lower, so i am OK with this.

Bottom line:  Loving the HOGAN, really thinking about putting a lighter shaft in my TITLEIST driver as well (to see what happens) and hands down worth the $$$.  I am seeing slightly less distance but more consistency from the HOGAN.

I love hearing this, more people need to stop chasing "bombs" and think about putting the ball in play instead. Still it is fun to blast one miles down the fairway....😁😎

OK, so went to my home course with the intention of walking 9.  Got paired up with another person and wound up walking 18 on the tougher, narrower, course (my home club has 36 holes).

Really starting to love this HOGAN driver.  The club now sits square (at least to my eyes) and i am having a much easier time getting lined up.  I am growing more and more confident in this club.  I will point to a few things.

1.  feedback--the immediate feedback coming off the face is great.  Also, i love the sound this driver makes and the feel of it.

2.  ball flight--the ball is coming off the face at a higher launch (my TITLEIST driver was about 10 degree launch angle...HOGAN Is around 13.).

         This could be for a few reasons.  Lighter shaft, higher degree of loft, etc.  Whatever the reason, perfect trajector

3.  Spin--while i have not tried to get actual spin rates yet, this driver seems to spin less....i put some swings where I KNOW my Titleist driver would have gone left, but the HOGAN stayed pretty true to the line.

Right now, I am really liking this driver and am appreciative of the chance to test it.

ON COURSE:  Hit driver on 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17.  Hit fairway on 3, hit it through the fairway by 1 foot on 4, hit fairway on 5, hit fairway on 11, hit fairway on 12 (par 5 with trouble at end of fairway (creek) and the about 200 to the pin.  Hit it about 295 (very long for me) to 5 feet in front of creek.  I even told the person I was playing with, I will hit driver as i don't hit it 300.  Hit fairway on 14 and 15 (15 was also long).  17 I pull it into the rough so that was me, not the driver.

The fairways I missed were literally 3 feet from the fairway and most rolled through.  

BOTTOM LINE:  This driver hangs with any driver i have every played (Titleist/Taylor Made being my last two) for a better price.  

Quick side note:  the feedback I have received from others I have played with has been.. "what is that driver, it sounds great".  "I didn't know HOGAN made clubs still".  Where did you get that driver, i have not seen them anywhere.  even a "why are you playing a Hogan driver".  The perception that HOGAN is not a Callaway, Taylormade, Titleist, etc. and thus is no good is very real with some people.  I have not let anyone else hit it....yet.

Great feedback, especially the perceptions of people you play with. I’m very tempted now and will try their demo program to test it myself a bit.

Since Club Champion is now fitting Hogan products, I'm tempted to make an appointment to see if there's a shaft combination that can really maximize the performance of this head.  I guess I'll have to wait until this COVID stuff dies down.

This is a fantastic idea I wish i had one close enough to try this. My plan was to try and get to a fitter and have them fit me for any driver and then compare my dispersion and distance to the GS53.

Alright 9 holes with league yesterday played the back nine so there is only 5 holes that you can hit driver and even one of those I rarely use driver but got to test the Hogan. weather was garbage and with a constant wind and really heavy air and misting near the end so all shots were short. 

Hole 10: Face Open push right 213 yds

Hole 11: Fade and didn't account for the wind 220 yds

Hole 12: I rarely hit driver here but had to try and cut the corner slight push which made it through the fairway  but solid strike 264 yds (maybe i need to try and cut this corner more)

Hole 16: OB Left wind off the left give up swing big old slice into trees and long grass 😞 198 yds

Hole 18: Misting heavy air good strike only fairway 241 yds

image.png.c541a64ed5521fe31f51cf1b7d0e6caa.png

 

With those sad drives through, I have been really enjoying GS53. My initial impressions have not changed it feels and sounds fantastic. I have compared this to my Ping G30 on the range and a few holes (no numbers yet) the Hogan was a better more penetrating and did not spin up like the ping.

Are you hitting the Hogan any lower or does it come out on the same trajectory but with less spin?  I know it's hard to know for sure without a launch monitor but I haven't played any super windy days yet to compare myself.

I get what you mean, I rather average 250 off the tee and hit the fairway 90% of the time, than average 300 but be on the woods 90% of the time.

Im not sure about launch angle but I definitely think I brought peak height down and have never felt like the ball has stalled in the air because of spin. When everything opens back up I'm going to get on a simulator and compare these as well as any other driver I can test

Its primarily been a straight flight. I have had some bad swings and got a hook or slice out of it but its just a terrible swing I had not the club. It has always felt more like a push or pull compared to a fade or draw.

Anything that i felt was a slice was definitely face open and cutting across it. There is no club that will fix this.

Yes I agree with this pozzit. The ball flight is definitely straight. When I miss, I come across it, and turn the hands over; it is more of a pull than it is a hook. When I put a good swing on the ball, ball flight is almost perfectly straight.

Just a little insight into what this driver can do. Usually I hit hybrid or 3 wood short of the water but today I felt ambitious and hit driver over the water. Great shot with perfect straight ball flight giving me a pitch it. I like this driver more and more each time I hit it.
