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.

Does Golf Club Lie Angle Affect Direction?

Yes, Lie Angle Affects Direction

Everything about the golf swing eventually comes down to one question.  Did my golf ball go where I wanted it to?  Let’s talk about how much affect lie angle has on the direction of your golf ball.

What is Golf Club Lie Angle?

You have heard over and over again how important it is to have your clubs fitted to your swing.  But you are probably thinking “How much difference can it really make?”.  The answer could be a significant amount depending on how far out of line your clubs are with your swing.

First, we need to make sure we have a good understanding of what lie angle is.  The lie angle is the angle between the sole of the club and shaft.  If the toe is down at impact, the lie angle would be considered flat.  A toe up condition would be considered upright.  An ideal lie angle would have the sole of the club parallel with the ground at impact.

Now that we understand what the lie angle is, let’s talk about the effects of having clubs with the wrong lie angle.

Golf Ball Direction

The first thing to know is that lie angle being incorrect is the most important on clubs with more loft.  The more loft a club has, the more magnified an incorrect lie angle will be when it comes to the direction of your golf ball.  A 3 iron will be much less offline than a PW with the same lie angle.

Let’s take a real world example based on an article written by Barton Creek Golf Academy .  The following scenario is for a right handed golfer.

“First, assume you have a 120 yard shot to a pin and your choice of club is a 46 degree pitching wedge. Let’s say you execute the shot perfectly with one exception: the toe of the club is up 4 degrees at impact. This means the lie angle of the club is adjusted too upright for you. This scenario creates a ball that will be pulled 4 degrees left of the target because angle of clubface is tilted 4 degrees in that direction. This creates a ball flight that is roughly 26 feet left of the pin.

If the pin you were playing for was 15 feet right of the greenside bunker, then you just made a technically sound swing and ended up in the bunker. Another example would be a 190 yard shot with a 20 degree 3 iron that was executed well except the toe of the club is 4 degrees upright at impact. This would cause the face angle to point 1.5 degrees left of the target at impact resulting in a shot that is 15 feet off-line.”

Incorrect Lie Angle Could Hurt Your Game

Based on the numbers above, each degree of lie angle will cause you to be 6.5 feet off target when hitting a 120 yard shot with a 46 degree PW.  When you consider that you almost never execute a perfect swing, 1 degree off could easily cause you to be in the bunker instead of on the green.  If you hit the ball 10 feet left of the pin, your lie angle would cause you to be an extra 6.5 feet left.  There are many bunkers that are less then 16.5 feet from the pin.

But Could It Also Help Your Game?

We would be remiss if we didn’t also take into account the times that an incorrect lie angle could actually help you.  If an incorrect lie angle could hurt your perfect swing, it is then possible that it could help get you closer to the pin in the case of a bad swing.  With a lie angle 1 degree flatter than it should be, a shot pulled 10 feet left would end up 3.5 feet from the hole for a tap in.

When you take this into consideration, it really depends on your swing faults as to how much an incorrect lie angle would help or hurt.  If you tend to pull the ball a good bit of the time, it is possible that a flat lie angle could actually help you hit it closer to the hole.  Just as a person who pushes the ball would be helped by an upright lie angle.

Many of the newer adjustable drivers are built to adjust lie angle to account for your swing faults.  If you look at the Titleist chart below you will see that the setting to help you hit a fade is .75* flat.  Since the majority of amateur golfers hit a fade, Titleist allows more adjustment to help you hit a draw at 1.5 degrees upright.

Titleist Driver Adjustment Chart

Obviously, the optimal thing to do is get lessons and get a better golf swing.  However, if you don’t have the time to perfect your golf swing.  You might try adjusting your lie angle to help cover your swing faults.

When Should I Have My Clubs Checked?

Buying New Clubs

If you are buying brand new clubs, you can have them ordered to fit your swing with the correct length and lie angle.  If you buy a new set of standard clubs, you can have them bent to your specifications by a local golf shop.  However, keep in mind that most cast made clubs can only be bent a certain amount without causing stress on the metal.  If you own soft forged clubs, they are easier to bend and have more room for adjustment without causing problems.

Keep in mind that every manufacturer has their own standard lie angle.  The standard lie angle between manufacturers could be up to 2.5 degrees different.  Make sure you get fitted to know what degree lie angle you need.

Buying Used Clubs

I had a friend who once bought a used set of soft forged irons.  When he had the lie angles checked, they were all over the place.  If you like to go into the local golf shop and buy a used set off the rack like my friend, try to have the shop check and if needed adjust the lie angles for free.  They normally charge $3 to $5 per club to make adjustments, so this could save you some cash if you can get them to throw it in.   Check out our article about the best used clubs of 2017 if you are in the market.

New Swing

When you consider what was discussed earlier in this article, it stands to reason that making swing adjustments could necessitate lie angle adjustments as well.  Let’s say your swing coach has you stand closer to the ball, there is a good chance you will need to have your clubs adjusted to be more upright.  Many swing changes will affect the lie angle you need, so make sure you have your clubs checked when you change your swing.

After a Lot Use

If you play a significant amount of golf, it is possible that your clubs have slowly bent over time.  Softer forged irons are more prone to bending, but it is possible with any set of clubs.  It would be a good idea to have your clubs checked every couple of years depending on how much you use them.  If you are a range rat who spends a lot of time wearing out the face of your favorite 7 iron, you may also be changing the lie angle of that favorite club.

Conclusion

There are many things to consider about lie angle, but in the end everything comes down to golf ball direction.  As discussed earlier, the best solution to a swing flaw is to fix your swing through lessons and repetition.  However, many people just want to go enjoy a round of golf every now and then without a lot of practice.  If this is you, you may want to adjust your clubs to help cover up a swing flaw.  While not ideal, it could help you enjoy the game more.

Best New Drivers of 2018: Complete List

Best New Drivers of 2018

Are you in the market for a new driver for 2018?  Personally, I am always in the market for a new driver if I think it will help me hit it longer and straighter.

In 2017, the Callaway GBB Epic has become one of the most popular drivers available.  According to GolfWRX, the Callaway GBB Epic and Epic Sub Zero won the vote by a significant margin over the TaylorMade M2 with Titleist coming in 3rd.

It will be interesting to see if TaylorMade can take back the top spot for drivers in 2018.  Without any further delay, let’s start by taking a look at what the big four (Callaway, TaylorMade, Ping, Titleist) have to offer and then make our way through the rest of the manufacturers.

2018 Callaway Rogue / Rogue Sub Zero / Rogue Draw Drivers

It will be interesting to see if Callaway can improve on the well liked GBB Epic.  They have certainly given it their best shot with the new Rogue.  For more detailed information on the Callaway Rogue, check out our post here.

New Technology

Updated Jailbreak technology – The new jailbreak technology includes hourglass shaped bars that give the crown and sole more stiffness.  The stiffer face and sole allow the face to produce faster ball speed and increased distance.

Triaxial Carbon Crown – The carbon material saves weight and allows Callaway to redistribute weight to the perimeter of the club for higher MOI and better forgiveness.

Boeing Aero Package – Callaway worked with Boeing to help refine the leading edge for better aerodynamics.  The idea is to help you increase your swing speed even if ever so slightly.

Model Versions

The Rogue model line includes the standard Rogue, the Sub Zero, and the Draw version.  The Sub Zero is for higher swing speed players who need to lower their spin.  While the Draw model is for those of you who need to control your left to right ball flight.

Lofts Available

Standard and draw models come in 9, 10.5, and 13.5.  Sub Zero models come in 9 and 10.5.  All models will adjust down by 1 degree and up by 2 degrees.

Retail Price

There are some upgraded shaft options that will cost you more, but stock retail price is $500.

Video Reviews

Here are a few video reviews of the new Rogue.  Take a look at these to get a better idea of how they perform.



2018 TaylorMade M3 / M3 440 / M4 / M4 D-Type Drivers

 

TaylorMade is trying to play catch up to Callaway after being the lead dog in the past.  We will have to see if these new models help them become king of drivers once again.

New Technology

Twist Face – This is the new feature TaylorMade seems to be promoting the most and is included on all new TaylorMade models.  Instead of the traditional bulge and roll club face that has been around forever, the new Twist Face is curved open in the high toe and slightly closed in the low heel.  The result is tighter dispersion on mis-hits that should cause you to spend more time in the fairway.

Hammerhead – Also included on all new models.  The sides of the slot in the bottom of the club head has been reinforced to allow the club face to be lighter and more flexible.  This makes the sweet spot much larger and allows for more forgiveness.

Y-Track – Only on the M3 models.  The moveable weights on the bottom can now be adjusted within a Y shaped area.  It gives the golfer more options to adjust for draw, fade, high and low.

Model Versions

The premium models are the standard M3 and the M3 440 which include all of the new technologies.  The 440 version is for lower handicappers and golfers with higher swing speeds with a lower spin requirement.  The M4 is slightly less expensive and does not include the Y-Track technology.  It is more geared toward higher handicappers.  A D-Type M4 is also available for those who struggle with a slice.

Lofts Available

M3: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degrees

M3 440: 9.5 and 10.5 degrees

M4: 9.5, 10.5, 12 degrees

Cobra King F8 / King F8+ Drivers

Cobra has made some really good drivers in the last few years.  The Cobra Amp Cell Pro from a few years ago is still one of my favorite drivers.  The King F8 promises to be one of best they have produced based on early reviews.  When it comes to new technology, Cobra is leading the way with the new Cobra Connect app being the most exciting.

New Technology

Precision CNC milled face for more ball speed.  Milling the face is more precise which allows Cobra to ge the face thickness right to the legal limit.

E9 Technology – Cobra analyzed over 25,000 shots and noticed that missed tended to be in a elliptical pattern from low heel to high on the toe.  Armed with this information, they created a sweet spot that matches this pattern for more forgiveness.

Tilted bulge and roll axis – The top half of the face is designed with more curvature and the bottom half is more flat to optimize spin no matter where on the face you hit.

360 Aero – Like other companies Cobra has optimized the shape of the head for better aerodynamics to increase club head speed.

Adjustable CG Settings – One weight in the back and one in the heel allow you to optimize spin for greater distance and accuracy.

Cobra Connect – The only one of the major manufacturers to feature an App that connects to the golf club.  The App gives you distance, dispersion, and percentage of fairways hit to help you improve your game.  It will also make suggestions about the optimal driver settings for your swing.

Model Versions

King F8 – Geared toward those who need a little more forgiveness, but is also great for the better player.  Has one CG weight toward the heel to help create more draw bias.

King F8+ – Targeted at the better player with weights in the center of the sole near the face and the back edge of the club head.  This allows for more adaptability for spin and launch angle.

Lofts Available

King F8: 9° / 9.5° / 9.5° Draw / 10.5° / 10.5° Draw / 11.5°  / 11.5° Draw / 12°*

Retail Price

Both models retail at $399

Mizuno GT180 / ST180 Drivers

Mizuno is well known as one of the leading iron companies, but their drivers have been playing catch up for a number of years.  They have caught on some with their recent offerings, but still make up a small share of the driver market.  The new GT180 is one of the more adjustable drivers available today and could be one that continues to help the company gain traction in the driver market.

New Technology

Amplified Wave Sole – The ST180 has this technology that compresses and expands the entire sole at impact causing faster ball speeds.

Forged SP700 Ti Face – Allows more flex at impact to increase ball speed.

Cleveland Launcher HB Driver

Cleveland is best known for wedges and putters, but they’ve returned to the long game with the new Launcher HB.

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

Original Project X Rifle Irons

  • Regular – 5.0

EvenFlow Woods & Hybrids

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!
