Ben Hogan Launches New Irons, Wedges

There hasn’t been a new club released under the Ben Hogan name in almost two years. That will change in April, when Ben Hogan launches a new version of the Edge irons, as well as new Equalizer wedges.

Edge Irons

The Edge revisits the most popular club line in Ben Hogan’s history, repeating a name that was found on the first Edge irons thirty years ago. As with previous versions of the Edge, the clubs are meant as game-improvement irons that sport a design to appeal better players. The new design makes sure to echo the appearance of previous Hogan irons, while updating the technology to compete with modern clubs. This includes constructing the head with two separate forged parts, in order to incorporate perimeter weighting technology. Take a look at some of the other updates below:

Equalizer Wedges

The new Equalizer wedges carry the name given to Hogan’s own pitching wedge by his competitors. They are made from 1025 carbon steel and feature updated V-Sole technology. The line includes gap, sand, and lob wedges at $100 per club.

In January of 2017, the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company declared bankruptcy. These releases will mark the first new club products since that time. The company has also made the change to direct-to-consumer selling. This means that the clubs will be available exclusively through their website instead of the larger retailers. The Edge irons and the Equalizer wedges are both available to pre-order on benhogangolf.com.

Complete Guide to Project X Flex Codes

Have you ever wondered what the number designation on your Project X shaft means? You know, the 5.0, 6.0, 6.5 and so on printed on the shaft. These numbers correspond with flexes from “regular” to “extra stiff plus”. While the flex is sometimes written on the shaft, many times it isn’t, leaving only the number to inform you of the flex. The only problem? The flex that corresponds with each number often changes based on the shaft model. And the power of Google can fail you as you search for a cohesive list of all of the flex code meanings. Even the Project X website lacks any kind of compiled guide, and only some of the individual shaft product pages reveal which numbers go with which flex.

Not to worry. We’ve created an extensive list of Project X shafts and their flex codes. We’ll update the list as more shafts are released in the future.

Project X Flex Codes

  • Extra Stiff – 6.5

EvenFlow Woods & Hybrids

(Available in Black and Blue)

  • Regular Plus – 5.5
  • Stiff – 6.0
  • Extra Stiff – 6.5

It’s important to note that there has been much discussion around the designation of flex for Project X versus other shafts. A “stiff” flex from one shaft producer will not always equal a “stiff” flex from another. While these codes are accurate based on the flex that Project X indicates, your mileage may vary on how well the feel of the shaft matches the maker’s designation.

Five Unbelievable Luxury Golf Items

It’s no secret that golf is considered one of the more costly sports to play. If you want to get into soccer, you really just need a ball and something to act as a goal. Baseball essentially comes down to a bat, a ball, and a glove. But golf requires a decent amount of equipment, some of which can be on the pricey side, as well as fees to play at a course. Most golfers will tell you that the price tag is worth it to enjoy the sport that they love. But you’d be hard-pressed to find many players who would say the same about some of the most luxurious golf items on the market. From $100,000 weekend experiences to gold-plated clubs, here are some of the most expensive golf purchases:

    1. Barth & Sons Golden Putter First Lady Edition

      What do you get the golfer who has everything? How about one of the most expensive clubs ever created? The Golden Putter First Lady Special Edition, by Barth & Sons, is so expensive and exclusive that it might not even exist anymore. The original Golden Putter was released in 2011, with the First Lady Special Edition coming in 2014. The putter featured a 24k gold shaft, leather grip, and head with crystal inlays. The stones included in the club could be customized, with a top price point of $150,000. Today, the website that once sold the putters has gone offline. Did anyone ever purchase the $150,000 model? If so, how much more could it be worth today?

    2. The Ultimate PXG Xperience

      It’s only February, but you’re probably already longing for a vacation. Here’s the perfect getaway for the golfer with deep pockets and a taste for the Xtreme. Register for the Ultimate PXG Xperience and book your trip for a four-day romp around PXG headquarters and the Scottsdale National Golf Club. The entire package includes club fittings, two sets of clubs, three rounds of golf, private air transportation, and breakfast with PXG founder Bob Parsons. You’ll also get to play 18 holes with Parsons, stay in a three-bedroom suite, and get two 105-minute massages. The price tag was originally at $99,000, but the PXG website has since made the price only available on request. It’s still likely to be in the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” range.

    3. Homna Limited Edition T-117

      With a reputation for luxury items, Honma has established the new gold standard for clubs that are too expensive to ever actually use. The limited-edition T-117 set was just announced at the PGA Merchandise Show. The clubs are plated with 24k gold and feature solid gold medallions on the top of every grip. You’ll be able to keep the clubs safe and sound with the included Beres crocodile bag and matching headcovers. All for the price of $75,000! Hurry – there are only 10 sets available in the world.

    4. Play a Round at Pebble Beach

      Pebble Beach is notable for being the home to some of the most expensive and prestigious golf courses in the United States. 18 holes at the Pebble Peach Golf Links will cost you $495, if you’re a guest at the Pebble Beach Resorts. Add on the cart fee if you aren’t staying at the resort, and a $92.50 fee for a caddie. Resort rooms range from $840 to $6,940. So if you’re looking to take the most expensive route, it will set you back at least $7,500. Is that price worth it for one of the most famous and immaculate public courses in the country?

    5. Full Sing S8 Golf Simulator

      Forget playing at Pebble Beach, or Torrey Pines, or even your own local course. Experience golf in your own home with the Full Sing S8 Golf Simulator. The simulator includes 87 championship courses, tracking technology, a touchscreen monitor, and a full HD 4k projector. The minimum room size requirement is 17’ W x 10’ H x 20’ D. The most expensive version, the Pro 2 Widescreen, starts at $64,900; a hefty fee to play golf at home at the most realistic level possible.

Like most of us, you’re probably looking to enjoy your golf game at a better value than these luxury-priced items. Whether it’s by playing with used clubs or getting some cash for your old ones, there are plenty of ways to play golf and save money!

Callaway Introduces new Rogue Models: Drivers, Woods, Hybrids, Irons

2017 proved to be an epic year for Callaway. The company saw its 2017 GBB Epic driver lead the field as one of the best reviewed and highest selling models of the year. For 2018, Callaway is going rogue, and taking some of the technology that worked so well in their last driver to their new fairway woods and hybrids.

The Callaway Rogue line will features three new drivers, two fairway woods, two hybrids, and four iron set models. All of the clubs fall under the Rogue name, but are built with unique designs for different players.

Rogue Drivers

The standard Rogue driver will be joined by the Rogue Sub Zero and the Rogue Draw. The standard Rogue will use “The Jailbreak Effect”, Callaway’s upgrade to the Jailbreak design. Lighter titanium bars connect the crown and the sole, giving the Rogue a thinner face with more flex than the Epic, while still delivering the same effect as the original. Other new features include a leading edge design for better aerodynamics, and an improved X-Face design to boost the variable face thickness. The Sub Zero is a low-spin version meant for Tour-level players. The Draw is a heel-weighted iteration built specifically to fight slices and create straighter ballflight. Both the Sub Zero and the Draw utilize the same Jailbreak and X-Face technology. All three versions are $499 at retail.

Rogue Fairway Woods and Hybrids

The most noticeable difference between the Epic and Rogue fairway woods and hybrids is the use of the Jailbreak technology. While the Epic limited the Jailbreak design to the drivers, the Rogue has implemented the technology into the fairway woods and hybrids too. The fairway woods come in the standard Rogue and the lower-spin Rogue Sub Zero model ($299 each). The hybrids are available in the standard Rogue and the more forgiving Rogue X ($249 each). The clubs all feature thin, Carpenter steel clubfaces and Face Cup designs.

Rogue Irons

Callaway will also release four different models of irons under the Rogue name. The standard Rogue irons, Rogue X irons, and Rogue women’s irons will all retail for $899 steel, $999 graphite, while the Rogue Pro irons will go for $999 steel. The standard Rogue is built as an option for a wide selection of players as a game-improvement iron. It includes the 360-cup face technology found on many of Callaway’s recent iron models. The Pro version features all of the same technology as the standard, but with a thinner topline and sole. The Rogue X includes the same technologies as the Rogue, but with features like stronger lofts, lighter weights, and a larger clubhead to maximize distance and enhance forgiveness. The women’s model is ultra-light weight and includes a large cavity to increase forgiveness.

Take a look at the different Rogue models:

All clubs are available for pre-order on January 19, 2018, and at retail on February 9.

New Ping G700 Irons Feature Hollow-body Design

Ping’s latest game-improvement iron finds similarities with recent Ping hybrid models. Unlike any of its predecessors, the Ping G700 features the first hollow-body for a set of irons in the history of the company. The successful design of the Ping Crossover hybrid acts as a direct influence for the G700 irons. The hollow-body is meant to push distance and forgiveness to the max. The thin face combines with body design to make the club perform more like a metalwood. Ping has always been known for their game-improvement irons. Now, the G700 model aims to take the next step in creating a forgiving design.

Take a look at the official description from Ping and images of the G700:

 In this game-improvement iron, PING engineers put a high priority on power and forgiveness by leveraging the advantages of a hollow-body design and a thin, maraging steel face, creating PING’s longest, highest-flying iron to date. All this comes with the added benefits of playability, tighter dispersion and enhanced sound in a slim, aesthetically pleasing shape.

 

The G700 irons are priced at $160 per club in steel or $175 per club in graphite, with 4-iron through sand wedge available. Pre-orders for the clubs are open now.
