The failed Hogan experiment.

Seems like some of you are getting your panties in a bunch over nothing.

The topic has been discussed at length in the not so distant past. The guys commenting were there for the first go around. They aren't dissing any of you... just having a bit of fun. Chill out.

The stamping on the sole of a club is only a cosmetic issue.  Nothing more.

Cosmetic preferences are purely subjective.

People who don't care about the cosmetics, however, seem to be highly critical of those who do.

Not sure why it stirs up animosity and belligerence, but it clearly does...on virtually every golf internet forum.

Perhaps it's best to keep one's subjective opinions to oneself.

I just wish that I understood why,

but it's probably better to drop the issue than to try to understand why it makes people as angry as it does.

 

 

 

I don't think anyone is angry but rather weary of the subject/debate.  This one, like a handful of others, keeps being recycled. In answer to your question, I have not used clubs with only lofts stamped on them and think Hogan's experiment simply shows that most prefer the traditional iron number.  From there, we establish the distance our swings yield with each club and that has served the vast majority of golfers for a long time.  Marketing guys are always looking for something to make their product unique and, hopefully, outsell the competitors... they win some and they lose some.

The Ptx irons have the number etched on the back of the hosel.

I did not know that or if his was so equipped--- If they were he probably could not see them at a glance because he was 70 yoa at the time--- He engineered that idea on his own.

I mean lee Westwood literally writes down the distances on his irons… seems like a good way to correct the possible issue

I wondered if he did that to make it easier for his wife to pull the right club when caddying.
