I think they are coming from VA since they were supposed to be used in most wanted testing.

Confirmed. At least for me... It's coming from Ft Worth. Should have it on the course on Sunday.

I got the call today too.. 

I have almost 500 turkey orders to get done before next Thursday and that club showing up will be sweet, sweet balm for the soul. 

After all the overtime I'm looking at next week, I'm considering a tee time at a course by the ocean to unwind and let this thing rip. I mean, I, excuse me, we deserve it. Right?

Definitely shipping from Texas. Package was received this afternoon and my projected delivery date dropped to Friday! Assuming it comes at the normal FedEx time I'll hopefully already be on the course (barring that pesky work thing getting in the way), but at least I'll have a pleasant surprise when I get home!

No email hits as well as the shipping confirmation email 🙂

For the 3 wood players, if any of you are awful at hitting fairway woods please raise your hands.  This club has been a pariah of my bag; as a Hogan player I would love to find a reason to game this club.

I wouldn't say I'm awful at hitting them, but it's not my favorite club in the bag. I've experimented, and my current gamer is old enough to buy us a beer, but I just can't find something I'm confident in. Love my Hogan clubs so I'm hoping for the same as you.

Oh what did FedEx Santa leave me under the tree?IMG_2001.JPG

Wow! First impressions on this club are out of this world. I’ll do a full write up on first impressions tomorrow or Monday, but unbiased opinion this might be the best looking hybrid at address I’ve ever stood over.

Super excited to see the FedEx man yesterday.....

I have to say I was very impressed with the looks of this club when I took it out of the box. It looks better in person than on the Hogan website which I think gives the impression that it has some awkward proportions.  The quality seems very high with a strong attention to detail, certainly as good or better than some of the much more expensive clubs from the Big 3.  The paintfill and all of the polished portions look perfect. Also a nice touch to leave the headweight sticker on the club. Mine checks in at 240.5g.  I'll have more to write up once I get a chance to get out to the range.....
