After laying off much of its staff earlier in January, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Co. has filed for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Fort Worth on Saturday, Jan. 28.

Ben Hogan Golf Equipment was relaunched in 2014 by Terry Koehler, who had previously been an executive with a previous incarnation of the company originally founded by Fort Worth golf legend Ben Hogan.

Last year, Koehler was replaced by Scott White and earlier this month the company laid off about 30 of its 40 employees. At the time the company’s press release said “The Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company announced today that it is going through a period of re-tooling and right-sizing in an effort to become more nimble and profitable in the highly competitive golf equipment business.”

The case number of the filing is17-40301 and the company has listed its attorney as John Y. Bonds of Bonds Ellis Eppich Schafer Jones LLP in Fort Worth.

Golf manufacturers, retailers and courses have hit a rough patch lately. Retailer Golfsmith filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2016.
