GS53 Drivers – When we set out to design and build the GS53 Driver, we did so with the more accomplished player in mind. We used the most advanced, proven materials and technologies to develop one of the best-looking and best-performing modern drivers available. It’s a driver that lives up to the Ben Hogan name and promise. The GS53 Driver is designed to deliver all the distance allowed by golf’s governing bodies yet was engineered to let the better player shape shots as desired off the tee.
Ben Hogan knew that forging is a superior way to manufacture golf equipment. The forging process is expensive and time-consuming, especially with titanium, but it provides the feel and performance that investment cast products can’t deliver. Like Mr. Hogan, we simply won’t take shortcuts or use inferior manufacturing techniques that can reduce quality or performance.
Forged clubs provide an exceptional feel. They also deliver exceptional performance.
The GS53 Driver head is made using two separate pieces of titanium to optimize both distance and forgiveness. The body is crafted first, then a highly engineered, forged 6-4 titanium face is laser-welded into place. The multi-step forging process ensures that the molecular structure of the titanium face is tight, uniformly consistent, and free from “dead” spots.
The forged titanium face is engineered at varying thicknesses, too, to increase the size of the Effective Hitting Area (EHA). Ben Hogan engineers utilized a design feature called Face Flex to maximize response at impact, especially on off-center hits. The ultra-thin face is crafted within the absolute tightest thickness tolerances – from toe to heel and sole to crown – to ensure more active and livelier ball flight across the entire face and to minimize distance loss on off-center hits.
Higher Center Of Mass For Lower Spin Rates And Launch
Unfortunately, you can’t see the engineering ‘magic’ inside the GS53 Driver head. Our engineers manipulated discretionary weight inside of the 445cc clubhead to create a higher, and more forwardly positioned Center of Mass. For golfers with higher clubhead speeds, this creates more boring and penetrating trajectories.
Plus, bulge and roll were precisely engineered for the specific geometry of the face to allow to minimize vertical spin rates (and eliminate ‘ballooning’ drivers) yet allows for a horizontal spin that controls shot shape. A controlled swing will allow skilled golfers to easily draw or fade drives, if needed, to cut a corner or land on the desired side of a fairway.
