“The perfect golf swing was essentially born on August 13, 1912, and today every serious golfer aspires to swing like Ben Hogan,” said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “Mr. Hogan founded his equipment Company based on the idea of building the best golf clubs in the world to allow serious players who worked hard to refine their skills and swing to play their best golf. That mantra has driven the company for nearly seven decades. Now, on what would have been his 107th birthday, we are dedicating a week to honoring the man, and the birth of golf’s greatest swing.”
Ben Hogan’s mission was to “manufacture clubs that offer the best performing design, the best feel for contacting the golf ball, and the best eye appeal.” Today, 66 years later all Ben Hogan Golf products are hand-crafted using Mr. Hogan’s proprietary club building process. In fact, the Company’s team of craftsmen, some of whom worked with Mr. Hogan directly for many years, builds each individual club and set of irons one at a time, to exacting, individual golfer specifications.
“Ben Hogan entered the equipment business with the same singular focus that drove his success on the golf course,” said White. “Mr. Hogan was obsessed with precision and perfection, and he made it his mission to design and build the finest golf clubs ever made. Today, he would be proud to know that serious golfers can purchase hand-crafted, custom-made products directly from his company.”
White concludes, “Mr. Hogan was an innovator … and a shrewd businessman. Being able to offer golf equipment of exceptional quality without retail mark-up and obscene profit margins is good for golfers, and it’s an idea he was passionate about.”
