Ben Hogan Precision Milled
Our take: In 2019, Hogan made its grand reintroduction to the putting game with a brand-new line of forged putters — the company’s first flatsticks in almost 15 years. The superstar of that first Hogan line was the M01, a traditional mallet made using a complex forging process. In 2021, Hogan is back with the M02, an updated version of the popular model from two years ago. “Nice solid but not heavy feel,” one tester said. “Frames the ball well in the address position. Picking up the ball is a really nice feature that I didn’t know I needed.” We like the scooper too, particularly when we’re picking up our initial rolls inside gimme range.

The details: A multi-step forging process strengthens and purifies the molecular structure of the metal, tightening the grain structure so as to maximize consistency throughout the putter face. After the forging process is complete, each putter is sent for CNC milling to ensure perfect flatness and uniform pattern across the face. The last step in the putter-creation process is a patented Diamond Black Metal finish to eliminate glare and provide more contrast with the putting surface for better alignment.
