Ben Hogan once said there are no shortcuts in the quest for perfection. Nor are there shortcuts to making the perfect putter. That’s why Ben Hogan Precision Milled Forged Putters are crafted from soft, 1020C carbon steel in a multi-step forging process that strengthens and purifies the molecular structure of the metal. True forging refines and tightens the grain structure of the metal for incomparable consistency and feel in every Ben Hogan Precision Milled Forged Putter head we make.
A forged, CNC milled putter is not the least expensive or easiest option, but at Ben Hogan Golf we believe it is the best. The thermal cycle and deformation process that occurs during forging creates metallurgical recrystallization, which refines the grain structure of the metal. Through forging, deformed grains are replaced by new, defect-free grains that nucleate and grow until the original grains are entirely consumed.
