The Ben Hogan Company started in 1953. It was well known throughout the company that there was nobody that expected perfection more than Mr. Hogan; to say he was iconic is an understatement. Toda

Learning a new edit system during Covid so I cut together a little something.....    

Hello UIHI.... Is it hot out here or is it just you?

I am so stoked to be a part of this great review team of Spies!

Ben Hogan holds a special place in my heart - my sincerest thanks to MyGolfSpy and Ben Hogan Golf for this opportunity.

I am truly honored and cannot wait to start digging answers out of the dirt a' la Mr. Hogan!

Congratulations to all of the new Hogan testers. I look forward to following along.

I'd like to add a bit of history about the 'special place in my heart' comment Hogan's have for @downlowkey. The first set of clubs he chose to use in playing high school golf were Hogan's. He loved them and they became like an extension. I remember well how he would practice with those clubs until his hands bled. He would come home and immerse his hands in ice water so he would be able to repeat the intensity the next day. That's dedication. And it paid off.

Congrats to the chosen testers.  As a big fan of Hogan equipment (12 of 14 clubs in my bag), I will certainly be following along closely.

Have you used and Hogan’s in the past? What other blade sets have you payed?

I have a feeling the icons are going to look even better in person than in the photos.

I have not used hogan's in the past. I started my golf adventure using my dad's old mcgreggor vip blades from like the 70s, granted I was 19 years old when I started. Then I have been using titleist ap2 for the past couple years.   I am excited to see them in person!!

Nice which AP2? I’ve got the 714s so I’ll be really interested to see how you like them and playable they are!

Actually, that's a myth from long ago.  I only have one set currently.   I know hard to believe isn't it!

I’m excited and very grateful to MGS for selecting me.  I’ve played everything from the original 1954 Hogan Precision’s, to the 1960 Power Thrust, to the 1968 Bounce Sole, the 2000 Apex Plus, the 2006 Apex, the 2015 Ft. Worth’s and now these beautiful PTX Pro/ Icon combo set.    
 
Can’t wait to get into this review!

Man, be careful! These have some new-age “tech” in them.... We’d hate for you to come into the 21st Century full-bore!!!! Congrats!
