When we set out to design and build the GS53 Driver, we did so with the more accomplished player in mind. We used the most advanced, proven materials and technologies to develop one of the best-looking and best-performing modern drivers available. It’s a driver that lives up to the Ben Hogan name and promise. The GS53 Driver is designed to deliver all the distance allowed by golf's governing bodies yet was engineered to let the better player shape shots as desired off the tee.

FORGED FOR PERFORMANCE
Forged clubs provide exceptional feel. They also deliver exceptional performance.
Ben Hogan knew that forging is a superior way to manufacture golf equipment. The forging process is expensive and time consuming, especially with titanium, but it provides the feel and performance that investment cast products can’t deliver. Like Mr. Hogan, we simply won’t take short cuts or use inferior manufacturing techniques that can reduce quality or performance.
The GS53 Driver head is made using two separate pieces of titanium to optimize both distance and forgiveness. The body is crafted first, then a highly engineered, forged 6-4 titanium face is laser welded into place. The multi-step forging process ensures that the molecular structure of the titanium face is tight, uniformly consistent and free from “dead” spots.
The forged titanium face is engineered at varying thicknesses, too, to increase the size of the Effective Hitting Area (EHA). Ben Hogan engineers utilized a design feature called Face Flex to maximize response at impact, especially on off-center hits. The ultra-thin face is crafted within the absolute tightest thickness tolerances - from toe to heel and sole to crown - to ensure more active and livelier ball flight across the entire face and to minimize distance loss on off-center hits.
HIGHER CENTER OF MASS FOR LOWER SPIN RATES AND LAUNCH
Unfortunately, you can’t see the engineering ‘magic’ inside the GS53 Driver head. Our engineers manipulated discretionary weight inside of the 445cc clubhead to create a higher, and more forwardly positioned Center of Mass. For golfers with higher club head speeds, this creates more boring and penetrating trajectories.
Plus, bulge and roll were precisely engineered for the specific geometry of the face to allow to minimize vertical spin rates (and eliminate ‘ballooning’ drivers) yet allows for horizontal spin that controls shot shape. A controlled swing will allow skilled golfers to easily draw or fade drives, if needed, to cut a corner or land on a desired side of a fairway.
Adjust lie, loft and face angle simply and easily.
Ben Hogan’s proprietary adjustable hosel is ingeniously designed, yet simple and easy to use. Change the loft of the driver up to two (2) degrees from the base loft – one degree stronger or weaker. You can also change the lie angle and face angle from square to open or closed, and “tune” your driver to your specifications and/or desired shot shape.
All adjustments can be made in a matter of seconds on any range, by any golfer, using the adjustment wrench provided. Best of all, the eight (8) settings are easily identifiable and don’t require re-orientation of shaft graphics or grip position. So, you’ll be able to keep the shaft and grip aligned to your personal preference no matter which setting you select.

Traditional shape and pleasing sound.
The engineers at Ben Hogan Golf developed the GS53 Driver with extra attention to detail in regard to club head shape and sound at impact. We heard from too many serious players that many drivers on the market today are closed at set up, or otherwise don’t “look right.” They also told us the sound generated at impact by some drivers using various space-age materials is deadened and can’t provide the feedback of a driver made from one material.
The Ben Hogan GS53 Driver’s 445cc head is traditionally shaped, with a squared-off toe for more visual appeal at set up. This provides added confidence and reduces a subconscious desire to manipulate the club head position, or worse yet, swing path, to overcome discomfort with the club head alignment.
Additionally, the sound of the GS53 Driver was acoustically tuned to provide a pleasing sound and, in turn, better feedback. You’ll love the solid, crisp sound of a well-struck drive.
Don’t just take our word for it
I just got my driver and 3-wood today and I just played golf recently where I live in an apartment on golf course. Driver and 3 wood are amazing and are alittle longer than my all old drivers and 3 woods! These woods will be in my bag for long time! I really like alittle smaller head that I can control better. You guys should give it a try and I believe you guys won’t disappointed as long as you get right , shaft, length of shaft , and flex.
Thank you Shawn we are glad you love your driver and wood so much and we hope you keep loving them for a long time
I purchased a Callaway Epic Speed driver after testing many others. Then, I saw a commercial for this driver. It blows all other drivers away!! Love the simple craftsmanship. I can control the ball flight (cut or draw) because the head is not gigantic. Also, the ball sounds great coming off the clubface. I will be ordering more clubs soon:)
Hey William! Happy to hear you are really loving your new driver
Great driver does hit the ball lower than other drivers. That I`m certain is the shafts, I got an A flex but it is closer to regular flex. It dry right now so my drives are going longer from the roll the driver is more forgiving than others I have Played.
Thank you William I am glad to hear you are enjoying the Driver
Have got this driver with regular hazardous shaft, is performing miles and miles better than mt old ping g410
Hey Garry we are happy to hear you are enjoying your new driver
Great feel and control. The club gives consistent feedback and accuracy. It looks great at address.
Hey Thank you Jason for the great review! I am happy to hear you are enjoying your clubs!
