Ben Hogan Irons and Golf Clubs
Thanks for checking out our Ben Hogan golf clubs page. Hogan Golf produces so many great clubs at bargain prices, I decided to feature all of them here.
I keep up with them as best I can and update this page regularly. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
Ben Hogan GS53 Fairway Woods
Who are the GS53 fairway woods for?
- Better ball strikers that favor accuracy and consistency over raw distance.
The GS53 fairway woods have a smaller profile head that frames the ball beautifully on the tee and off the turf. They launch the ball easily and have a medium-high flat trajectory with good distance.
No need to go after these. Put a good swing and let the club do the work. You can shape or flight like you want. Easy to take off distance too. You may want to consider alternatives if you like looking down at larger club heads.
Do yourself a favor and demo one for yourself.

Ben Hogan GS53 MAX Driver
Who is the GS53 MAX driver for?
- Any player looking for distance, forgiveness, and some playability.
The GS53 Max is a no nonsense driver in the tradition of all Hogan clubs. It has a simple and elegant design. No unnecessary parts. And, is all about performance and disguising the tech that makes it go.
It keeps all but my worst swings playable and has all the distance of drivers costing $150 more. Do yourself a favor and demo one for yourself.

Ben Hogan Player's Combo Set
Who is the Player's Combo set for?
- Low handicap golfers- say 10 handicap and below- that are looking for the consistency and scoring ability of blade short and mid irons and a little help with launch and forgiveness in long irons.
Hogan heard you and created the Player's Combo set.
I got my set in fully expecting to have issues with the Icons (blades) in the set. Not the case. At all. I adjusted to them quickly and am shooting consistently low scores.
My handicap has gone from a 10.9 to a 9.2 since I put them in play. (They aren't the only reason, but it certainly helps to have clubs go reliable distances on command.)
I Strongly suggest you give them a look if you are in the market for an excellent player set at a price you can't beat anywhere.

PTx PRO Irons
The most player-friendly "Player" irons from Hogan yet.
They combine the best performance attributes of player irons with enough forgiveness to let the 10 or 11 handicap in. I find them a joy to play with.
The club head isn't small, but it isn't big either. It frames the ball beautifully without looking clunky. The top line is on the thin side, but not to thin. I look down at address with confidence with my PTx PROs
They are long and launch the ball easily.
Give them a serious look if you are in the market for forgiving player irons. You'll love the performance and I know you can't beat the price.

Check out my ICON Irons Review here
I love my Icons and I'm ever-so-slightly stunned how well I hit them. I get consistent distance and accuracy and my scores and handicap reflect it.
They are the only blades offered by Hogan golf. They've taken the place of the Ft. Worths. And they are a serious upgrade.
- More forgiving
- Higher launch
- Better looking
They are precision instruments that offer all the performance better players demand WITHOUT sacrificing distance. (Much to my surprise)
You could try them yourself by taking advantage of the Demo Program...Some patience and persistence will be required. The Icons are in demand.
Edge EX Irons
Check out my full Edge EX Irons Review
The Edge EX irons are the next generation of the Edge irons released in 2016. They are larger and more forgiving than the originals. I consider them a fine choice for mid handicappers and high handicappers alike.
Features with Benefits
1)Open Cavity Design
2) Extra Offset
- Provides added forgiveness by moving weight from behind the hitting area to the perimeter of the clubhead
- Inspires more confidence at address and helps higher handicaps have an easier time squaring the club face
3) Lower Center of Gravity (CG)
- Increase forgiveness and launches the ball easier by placing more weight lower and to the rear of the club.
4) V-Sole Technology
- High-bounce leading edge and soft low-bounce trailing edge help with turf interaction
5) Stronger Lofts and Ben Hogan PreciseLoft System
- Eliminate distance gaps between clubs because with consistent 4-degree loft gapping between clubs.
- Increased distance from 2 degrees stronger lofts.
Read my full Ben Hogan VKTR+ Hybrid review to get my hands-on report
The VKTR + is the best hybrid I've owned since I've been owning hybrids.
It looks awesome behind the ball and awesome in general. It feels great and launches the ball easily.
The VKTR+ is Exactly why you get a hybrid.
The VKTR+ hybrids come in 3 lofts with 4 degrees separating each
- 18*: comparable to a Hogan 3-iron
- 22*: comparable to a Hogan 4-iron
- 26*: comparable to a Hogan 5-iron
Unique Features for Superior Performance
- Forged 455 Miraging steel face for pure feel and better feedback
- Minimal offset preferred by better players
- Bulge and roll clubface to bring toed and heeled shots back on line
- Variable Face Thickness (VFT) to deliver solid shots all over the face
The VKTR+ hybrid is simple, elegant, and more importantly, effective. Do yourself a favor and give one a try if you are in the market. You won't regret it.

UiHi Irons (You-Eye-Hi)
This is Hogan's attempt at making a forgiving and confidence-inspiring long iron.
Hogan contends (as do I) that the key to hitting quality golf shots, especially with long irons, is about confidence. Or at least one of the keys.
The confidence you get from looking down at your ball at address and seeing that club head cradle the ball just so. And Not wondering how in the world you are going to make decent contact.
You can put your normal swing on it and get a decent result. No over-swinging. Not rushing your tempo to squeeze out extra yardage.
Also, the heads are designed to look bigger than they actually are.
UiHi Utility Iron Features with Benefits
Multi-Material Forged Construction: The frame of the club head is made of soft 1020 carbon steel. Hogan says this allows them to make the club head larger with a deeper cavity. With this, weight is optimized around the perimeter and CG is deep and towards the rear of the club.
The face is made of exceptionally thin MS300 carbon steel which allows weight to be allocated elsewhere in the club head for added forgiveness.
MODIFIED V-SOLE TECHNOLOGY: Again, they’ve increased the angle of the leading edge and decreased the angle of the trailing edge of these irons to improve turf interaction and prevent digging.

Equalizer II Wedges
**Read my full Equalizer II Wedge Review Now!
They have been replaced by the Equalizer II wedges.
“Equalizer” is the nickname Ben Hogan’s competitors gave his pitching wedge back in his heyday because of his proficiency with that club.
Hogan surmised there was too much weight in the sole of the club and the faces were too thin, leading to inconsistent performance.
Features with benefits
1) Progressive Center of Mass
2) Precision Milled Face and Grooves
- Weight is placed higher in the heads of higher lofted wedges for extra height and stopping power around the green and lower in lower lofted wedges to prevent ballooning in partial and full shots from the fairway
- The grooves are CNC milled aggressively and the surfaces between the grooves are textured for extra stopping power.
3) Forged 1025 Carbon Steel
- The heads are forged from a single piece of 1025 carbon steel to maximize feel and eliminate hot spots and imperfections
4) V-Sole / Texas Grind
- The V-sole has a high bounce leading edge with a softer low bounce trail edge to perform well in all turf conditions.
- The Equalizer IIs also has extra sole and heel relief, "Texas Grind", to help the wedges perform better in hardpan conditions and let you lay the face wide open on tight lies.
Loft Options: 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62
Ben Hogan BHM01 Putter

**Read my full Hogan BHM01 putter review Now!
Hogan makes 4 versions of a milled putter - and in black or chrome. The BHM01 spoke to me the most, so I tested it.
It feels balanced and rolls my golf ball true. I'm used to insert putters so I thought the puts with the BHM01 would feel clangy, but no. The sound is great and the feel is muted and nice.
This is the putter for you if you are into works of art that perform as well as anything out there. The BHM01 is my go-to putter and I love it.
I give it my full recommendation.
A Brief History of Ben Hogan Golf
The name “Ben Hogan” is synonymous with precision, perfectionism, and exacting standards. Ben Hogan irons, golf clubs and the Ben Hogan Golf Company would certainly be no different.
The Hogan Golf Company was formed in 1953 in Ft. Worth, Texas.
More recently, Ben Hogan Golf was purchased by Callaway Golf in 2003 as part of a deal for buying Topflite Golf. The company was later sold to Scor Golf in 2011 and remains in the hands of Scor.
The brand relaunched in 2015 with the creation of two brand new club lines, the Ft. Worth 15 irons for the better player and the PTx irons, also for better players. (Both discontinued)
At that time Hogan golf also offered the Ft. Worth Hi irons, VKTR hybrids, and the TK wedges.
In 2018, Ben Hogan Golf added the updated Hogan Edge irons, Ft. Worth Black irons, and the equalizer wedges.
Soon after followed the PTx Pro and Icon irons.
It seems Hogan Golf has settled on three iron lines: Icon, PTx Pro, Edge
I have a little personal history with the 1980’s version of the Edge irons, as intermittently borrowed them from my uncle along with a set of Ping Eye 2’s from a friend. I liked the Edge irons fine, but I loved the Pings.
