Ben Hogan Edge Irons

Welcome to our Ben Hogan Edge Irons review.

I put in a TON of work with the Edge’s on the range pounding golf balls and on the course here in Houston.

I sweated many buckets and formed some solid opinions on these clubs and I share them with you in this article.

SORRY – Ben Hogan Golf has gone out of business as of 7/20/22. They may, at some point, reopen. But, they are closed now and you can NOT order merchandise from them.

If you are:

  • A mid handicap golfer
  • A Hogan Golf fan
  • In the market for excellent mid-handicap irons
  • Like saving money 

You need to At Least consider these clubs.

They pack all the punch you’ll ever need and look great while doing it.

They are forgiving, accurate, powerful, sleek, and GORGEOUS!

Testing the Hogan Edge Irons 

On The Range: 5 9 Sessions and counting

On The Golf Course: 2 4 Rounds and counting

My method of testing: I wanted to get an immediate sense of how they performed against my clubs, which were specifically fit for me and that I love.

My range sessions consist of repeatedly hitting my 6 and 9 iron (now my pitching wedge and 7-iron), then hitting the Edge 6 and 9 iron. 

I go through 2 buckets or about 100 balls per session. On one or two occasions, I may have grabbed a third bucket. I was having that much fun. 

My Experience with the Edges  

What Surprised Me: The ball jumped off the face and matched my trajectory and distance with my Callaways from the very first swing.

Why Was I Surprised: They have a “player” look and I was expecting an intimidation factor. They come in a sleeker and more compact package. They are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch shorter from heel-to-toe compared to my old Callaway Fusions.

Great Performing irons for me…You can dial up any shot you want or need. Straight…Draws… and fades are hit easily.

My basic shot is a slight draw, but I’ve been working on hitting a fade for a couple months now and have intermittent success with it. I’m about 60% confident trying fades during a round.

I hadn’t hit any other iron, either in testing or just trying out a friend’s or a demo from the pro shop, that performed as well for me as my irons. So, they immediately had my attention

  • These clubs are hot… As long as any iron I’ve hit without having to go after it. 
  • Great Trajectory…The ball takes off high and lands softly. Holding greens is not a problem.
  • You can curve them any way your talent will allow
  • Very soft-solid feel at impact…Zero harshness and great feedback

DO NOT let the “player” look scare you away.

You will have no fear of hitting them when you see them behind the ball. The slightly thicker top line gives you all the confidence you need to swing away. These are great game improvement irons.

Full Review

Looks: These clubs are elegant, compact, and nice to look at. They frame the ball nicely and gave me the confidence I could swing away at the ball even though they are just a bit smaller than my current set. I attribute this to the slightly thicker top-line.

Distance: This is one of the things that got my attention immediately. Easy distance. The ball jumps off the face of my irons when I hit them solidly, but I also maintain control. I didn’t have to “go after” them.

Trajectory: The Edges mirrored the trajectory of my clubs from the first solid strike. I hit my irons medium-high to high, and I hit these the same. Very confidence inspiring. No Ballooning.

Shape: I was able to hit draws and fades as easily with these clubs as with mine.

Forgiveness: As forgiving a game improvement iron can be. I hit the majority of my irons shots toward the toe and probably got 95% or more of my normal distance- it seemed.

Who are the Edge Irons For?

Low-Mid to Mid Handicap…The Edges were designed with you in mind

I think this club will work exceptionally well for you. It did for me at least.

The thicker topline helps mitigate any loss of confidence you may feel from looking down at the slightly smaller club head. There’s just a crap-ton of tech and forgiveness hidden inside that beautiful chassis.

Low Handicap: These have all the performance attributes you want but you may want a less bulky club head and less offset. Consider PTx PROS or ICONS or the Player’s Combo Set

High-Handicap: This will be more of a hit and miss iron for you to begin with…BUT, I’m confident you can easily grow into them and keep them as long as you want. These clubs pack a ton of forgiveness and do not punish marginal swings.

I’ve had a couple high handicappers sing their praises to me just recently. 

Demo Program

Best of all, you can just go through their demo program and grab a couple demo irons, as I did. They ship the clubs to you within 3 days and provide a shipping label for easy returns.
