Recommended Posts

Today is apparently the start of MGS Christmas in July. Hogan, Honma, and Cobra deliveries?!

Those black icons look amazing!

Ding, ding, ding - I was hoping the reference would resonate.

Seemed particularly poignant for the 2020 we’ve all been sharing.

And so far, I say these ICONS are all right!

My parents would disown me if I didn’t pick up on that. I take pride in my movie quoting and song knowledge abivlities 😂

Well, unboxing left me in awe!!!!!! That last picture is the 4 iron, a little intimidating/ awesome! The finish is fantastic, not a big fan of the grip, a little squishy for my taste, however I'm gonna give them a fair shake before I regrip!20200710_144241.jpg.a69a8ac8d9dbcc5be5412a4936269002.jpg20200710_144252.jpg.f127861d151e27cdfa6de05c199014fe.jpg20200710_144818.jpg.e1d26fc38c3f5ff21ca9edff79ac746d.jpg20200710_144309.jpg.96f9a476a59e2a48ff99fb78c2fa925e.jpg20200710_144708.jpg.705b33b2004bb2d1ddc17a7c021712f7.jpg

Those are absolutely gorgeous! I love how the grips and heads compliment each other, that's a real classy look.

Unexpected surprise. Hogan clubs are here. They are flat out gorgeous clubs. The combo set blends beautifully together.  They are also dog approved as well. Can’t wait to try them out!

That's awesome fellas! @Sluggo42 that look of joy is priceless and @joen it's good to see the puppy approves. I can't wait to see more pictures and hear your initial thoughts on the Hogan's.

It’s easy to create a perspective error taking photos down a club shaft. A svelte head ends up looking impossibly tiny against an outsized hosel/shaft.

Have a gander at this more neutral ICON 4-iron address pic framed with a ball, and then tell me you can’t almost hear this kitten purring in your ear @PMookie.

I feel your pain. No golf for me this weekend either. It’s like getting a brand new toy as a kid and not being able to play with it.  I have already hit some great shots with these clubs in my mind. 😝
