Ben Hogan Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
William Ben Hogan (August 13, 1912 – July 25, 1997) was an American professional golfer who is generally considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of the game. Hogan is notable for his profound influence on golf swing theory and his legendary ball-striking ability. Following his most successful season, Hogan started his golf club company in the fall of 1953 in Fort Worth. Production began in the summer of 1954, with clubs targeted toward "the better player." Always a perfectionist, Hogan is said to have ordered the entire first production run of clubs destroyed because they did not meet his exacting standards. In 1960, he sold the company to American Machine and Foundry (AMF), but stayed on as chairman of the board for several more years. AMF Ben Hogan golf clubs were sold continuously from 1960 to 1985 when AMF was bought by Minstar who sold The Ben Hogan company in 1988 to Cosmo World, who owned the club manufacturer until 1992, when it was sold to another independent investor, Bill Goodwin. Goodwin moved the company out of Fort Worth, and a union shop, to Virginia so it would be close to his home of operations for other AMF brands and, incidentally, a non-union shop in an effort to return the company to profitability. Goodwin sold to Spalding in 1997, closing the sale in January 1998. Spalding returned manufacturing to Hogan's Fort Worth before eventually including the company's assets in a bankruptcy sale of Spalding's Top Flite division to Callaway in 2004. Callaway now owns the rights to the Ben Hogan brand. After over a half century and numerous ownership changes, the Ben Hogan line was discontinued by Callaway in 2008. In May 2014, Eldolon Brands approached Perry Ellis International and got the rights to use Ben Hogan's name for a line of golf clubs.
A would be customer shared his concerns in this review: "I did a demo of the Ft Worth at Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company... Really liked it, decided to buy a set. I have a gift card for $500. They cannot (or refuse to problem solve) and break your transaction into two payments. Since the irons cost more than $500, the card cannot be used because the remainder would need to be paid with a separate form of payment. If they can't figure this out to do a $700 piece of new business, what will happen if I have an issue post purchase? I am super bummed.. I was looking forward to getting a set of these clubs"
