2020 Official Member Review: Hogan GS53 driver

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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.

Had another great round with the Hogan on Friday and shot a very exciting -1, 71.  Driver was firing on all cylinders and I didn't get into trouble once off the tee. We had a LOT of rain all week so the course was very soggy and this brought the distance average down slightly due to no roll.  The sound and feel of the driver has become very addictive.

You should pay a video of the sound

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! 

Woo that's brilliant!! We would be happy to see a photo of the new spy but definitely no videos of the unpacking or photos for that matter 🥴😁😎

Here’s a video of my swing I was going to add to my review. You can kind of hear the sound of the club at impact.

Alright Driving was much better yesterday. I missed 2 fairways the first was cutting the corner to much and the second was a push avoiding the OB left. My strikes were much better then previous rounds. We got a bunch of rain earlier that day so the course was soft and i had a ball mark within a few feet of every drive. 

Drive lengths of: 283,249,244, 237, and 230 yds

I also just received an SC200 Plus and will review that separately but hitting a few drives on the range before and after the round. I felt like it was fairly accurate it didnt get the mishits very well. I was getting most carry distances between 235 & 270 yds and swing speeds of 95 to 108 mph
