Leading Golf Instructor Travis Fulton shares some advice on best practices when hitting a medium length chip shot with the new Ben Hogan Golf Equalizer wedge.
During his playing career, Ben Hogan’s competitors called his Pitching Wedge his “Equalizer” because he used it so effectively. While he was never the longest or even most accurate player on Tour, Ben Hogan had one of the best short games in the business.
Ben Hogan credited his short game success to his wedge design. He knew 65 years ago that ‘unbalanced’ wedges … wedges with too much weight positioned near the sole of the club and, in turn, very thin faces … wouldn’t perform consistently. After years of experimenting with weight distribution, he found one of his many ‘secrets’.
We’ve incorporated Ben Hogan’s wedge design philosophy across an entirely new line of Gap, Sand and Lob wedges … all worthy to bear the legendary Equalizer name. Equalizer wedges not only perform exceptionally well around the greens, but they look great too. They truly are the perfect blend of science with artistry.
