Ben Hogan Director Irons Review

Ben Hogan Director


Description
The Ben Hogan Director irons have a semi-long blade with a rounded sole. The plain scooped out back and thin top line make these as functional as they are traditional looking.

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.

Hogan Director

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.

Hogan Director Forged Blades

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.

Ben Hogan Director

Summary:
God where do i even begin to describe these clubs. Ok Ive played 3 sets of blades in my lifetime; MacGregor MT Pro Cut, Mizuno MP30, and Wilson Tom Kites. It felt like i had to come through faster with every swing to barely get close to where I wanted it. One day I went to Goodwill(seriously good clubs just need restration are there all the time) and I saw these nasty Ben Hogan blades but loved the look of them payed $20 bucks for them, went home and spent hours cleaning out the groves and face they look brand new now like they just came off the rack 20 years ago. I love the feel too, the face feels like velcro when i hit it. Honestly ive never hit a set not even cavity backs this well i had a handycap 13 when I got them, its been three months and im at an 8, and im still in highschool ha. They improved my game greatly.
