Unhit Hogans for $ 100 ??

12 posts in this topic

A friend retired and decided to take up golf.  He went into the store and ask for the best set of irons in the store and the best driver they had.  He spent about $900.  Then he decided he could not take up the game.  The clubs sat.  Never been on a course, and never even saw the range.

The clubs are Hogans with deep cavity backs.  Probably some of the last.  The driver is a gorgeous, milled faced, Goldwin.

He wants one hundred dollars.  Do you guys think these are worth it??   I am currently playing three year old Calloway Razr.  Sell Razrs and hit Hogans?  Resell Hogans for same price to a friend that needs clubs and keep hitting Razrs?  Or forget I ever saw these beautiful clubs.

Buy them for $100, and then sell them for $300?  Check with Golfsmith or even EBay and see what the set is worth. At $100 you should be able to resell them for a profit if you so desired. If not they are a good set of clubs if you wanted to use them to golf with.

The driver is worth virtually nothing and the irons are probably worth what you would be paying.

Not quite sure why you would want them. Your Call a way irons are most likely better.

You may be able to sell them for more on ebay, but is that a good look? Maybe he should do that.

I know you can get more than 100 clams on ebay for the irons. I don't know that they would be better than your razrs. Try them out, if you don't like them sell em on ebay or to your friend. I sold a set for $140 on ebay. What shafts do they have? Post a pic.

Cannot pic.  Guy still has them.  Steel shaft.  He will be around tomorrow to see if I want them.  I may take a day or two to decide. If he seems in a hurry, I am going to pass.  My other buddy does need some decent clubs tho.  The Hogans would be way ahead of his game and might help him improve.  He currently plays with hand me down Walmarts that have no grooves left.  Poor guy.

I have seen the Hogans tho, and they are pristine.  New, out of box.  I really don't need them, but sometimes it is hard to pass up brand new clubs for a good price.  Golf can be a form of mental illness at times.  I should probably seek professional help.

Why do you say that?

In the OP you said they had deep cavity backs.

They may be perfect for him.

That is kinda what I meant.  He has not played much and is still learning.  Expensive clubs are not anything he can undertake at this time and he does not understand the differences in clubs much.  This would be a way of obtaining good clubs that could stay in his arsenal for many years to come before he outgrew them.

I did not see the guy today.  I'll find out exactly what they are possibly tomorrow.  If my buddy does not want them, then sure, you can buy them from me if you want.   I'll have someone take pics and let you look at them first.  Sorry I'm not exact on which ones they are.  I only saw them for a moment cause I was at work at the time and only had one free moment.

I'm interested to know what they are, and, depending on what they are, I might be *very* interested.

Have not seen my buddy for a few days.  City qualifying going on here for the next week.  He is probably out at the course all the time.  When I get a second look at the clubs I will post the particulars.  From what I saw they were awesome.

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
