Shoots in the 90s
Model Reviewed: Hogan Director
Summary: I just purchased a set of Hogan Directors,(3-PW) from Goodwill. I liked their Look, Feel, and especially the Grips (They haven't been hit much, as they are clean and the previous owners name and address is scotch taped just below the grips, ...like last year.(?). I paid $350 for a set of CHEAP Irons, three woods, and a putter in the late 60's for a PE Class in college... VS $15 bucks for the Hogans, a putter and a serviceable bag @ GW this week. My last round was at Sunol, Bay Area, 40 years ago, broke 100. Best 9 holes was a year before in Bettendorf,IA, 5 over par, back 9. Out side of a lot of range work and trying to hit picnic tables in the park with a 9 iron, that's been it. 20 years ago, I gave the Wilson's to my nephew. Will be installing a net in back yard to chip/drive into, graduate to range and look forward to fun on the links this summer, in my retirement...
Similar Products Used: To fill out my playing "Set", I will not go for the traditional woods. There seem to be some nice oversized drivers and fairway wood type clubs I will research. Definitely will not go for the Big Bertha type Driver... (Someone above stated essentially, it's not so much the tool as it is the operator...)gaw

Shoots in the 80s
Model Reviewed: hogan director
Summary: Bought a used set in 1983 to start my golf career. Had a 27 handicap and in 8 years got to an 8. Hit a hole in 1 on 09/11/1991 at Honeywell golf course in Wabash Indiana and I'll never part with them. Tried newer clubs but there just isn't that feel.

Summary: I learned how to play with a set of Directors that belonged to a club pro.The faces had hit thoisands of balls. The old guy told me if I hit them where he did that I would always be straight. I was convinced by a friend to go to perimiter weighted. I sold the Directors and always regreted it. I bought a set on ebay in perfect shape for 18.50 (2-PW). The red numbers on the bottom are perfect. They look as though they have rarely ever been hit. They are the most beautiful irons I have ever seen. They are so good I will buy iron covers so they do not touch one another. I have hit every top brand and will never part with my Hogans again.

Summary: As one of the other reviewers indicated, these blades are "like butter" when hit well, but can be unforgiving as well...but that's part of the beauty of playing a good blade. I've been playing blades all my life, and these are the best I've owned. Also, like another reviewer on here, ironical that I too found a full set at Goodwill, re-gripped them and have been using for 2 years now. I bought a set of Titleist DCI cavity backs as well, and always seem to go back to the Hogans.
