Ben Hogan PTx and FLi Iron

This link is a good resource for those people looking for more information on the new 2016 Ben Hogan equipment presentation. Having had the opportunity to test all these clubs, I was very impressed with the models I tested. My opinion is that those people loyal to Ben Hogan golf would find that these additions will fill the gaps missing and increase the competition with other OEM lines.

Every club which have shown up on this blog for consideration would be a good fit in most bags when considering updates and gap fills. Personally, I am adding several clubs to supplement my FW15 irons. Mix of designs would be great for completing a combination set giving decerning golfs great opportunity and getting the most from their game.

Ben Hogan Golf – New Equip on old Principles

There are a great number of new golf equipment companies which make various claims. Some are valid and some are not. However, I believe that any serious golfer today should include the new BEN HOGAN COMPANY for consideration. They have managed to bring the principles of Mr. Hogan along with many new club design theories in their list of products for the coming year. Expansion of the line in 2016 includes a number of new models as well as a new hybrid.

If you are serious about new equipment, take the time and visit the site link below to get all the latest details on what I consider one of the better OEM lines in the business.

How Far Should You Hit Your Golf Clubs? | GolfWRX

It is now getting close to the opening of the 2016 golf season. All players should be looking to review their clubs, grips and yardages. Here is another reference for comparison relative to the distance you hit the golf ball from GolfWRX newsletter of August 22, 2015. The documents and graphs contained are truly a great reference for the average golfer.

One of the nice things about having all this new fancy technological equipment like Trackman, Flightscope, ShotLink, etc., at various PGA Tour events is that distance data can be gathered for each of the players.

First Look – Ben Hogan VKTR Hybrid

Regret the delay but getting to actually test these clubs was a real treat. As you may know I have a full set of the Hogan FW15 and TK15 irons and wedges and like most golfers would like to keep all clubs from a single manufacturer in my bag. That is not to say I do, but it would be nice. Currently non-iron clubs are a mixed bag.

Testing these at my club with senior staff from Ben Hogan on hand got me a good look at these clubs. Personally, I thought my swing is better suited to the Aldila shaft option (Stiff Flex) as the UST IRod F4 (Stiff) was much more “boardy” feeling. With the recent introduction of these this clubs I was curious if that could replace any of my existing equipment or be an option to the PTX 20* I was looking to add. I was most interested in my hybrid which is now 5-years old and I want some alternatives in club selection.

I was not surprise to see this new model which is in line with new development in the industry and carries Ben Hogan’s development ideas of the 1960’s. I do endorse this product and would encourage anyone to view this individualized upgrade to a more forgiving club.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Bob Parsons conducts business to an extreme, and that now includes golf clubs. The people he hired to build his golf clubs have no limitations and no deadlines.
