Ben Hogan GS53, GS53 Max
Our take: In 1953, Ben Hogan conquered the golf world with wins at the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. A half-century later, it’s only fitting that the GS53 (named in honor of Hogan’s famed ’53 campaign) carried a similar swagger into ClubTest. “It’s no nonsense, all the way through,” said one tester. “It’s simple, feels good, goes a long way. It’s not a hard choice.” You might not find flash among the GS53’s top benefits, but you’ll have no problem finding fairways.

Ben Hogan GS53 Driver
The details: A driver as it should be. The 445cc, titanium-bodied longstick is built with a forged clubface with variable thickness to ensure consistency from heel to toe. The Hogan team’s insistence on a “traditional” driver design means you won’t find any surprises with the GS53, particularly on the crown. Rather, the true innovation is on the inside, where engineers adjusted a higher, more forwardly positioned CG for better clubhead speeds and penetrating trajectories.
