Hi all,

i have only ever had one set of clubs, given to me by my father. They were given to him as a second hand set 35+ years ago.

i was playing a corporate day recently and the resident American golf pro got far too excited by my irons (I am in New Zealand) and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how old they are? I have checked the Google but alas, no help...

they are Slazenger Ben Hogan Power Thrust irons (full set). I haven’t been able to find any others with the words Ben Hogan in non-italicised text but Power Thruat in italics.

any hints or ideas appreciated. Picture below

Think they are early-mid '60's. Cant find the exact match but found this:

The Slazenger Hogan's were produced in England and New Zealand for those markets.  Can also be found in Australia.  Check the hosels and ferrules for a serial number.  If it has an "NZ" as part of the number, they were made in New Zealand.

If the ferrule is stamped "552" and the shafts are True Temper with a silver and blue shaft label they are the 1961 Power Thrust model.  This version was never produced for the the U.S. market.
