Great player irons at a bargain basement price
Ben Hogan PTx PRO Irons
$625 to $795
Absolutely my new favorite irons from Hogan. Beautiful styling and tons of technology packed into a compact (not too compact) clubhead..
|LOOKS||Gorgeous. I fell in love immediately|
|DISTANCE||As long as any I've tested. I carry my 6-iron 175 yds and my 9-iron 145 yards. The PRO's were right up with them.|
|FORGIVENESS||Plenty...A decent mid handicap ball-striker will do just fine with these. Not for high-handicappers that aren't serious about putting in the work to improve (Avoid)|
|TRAJECTORY||I got the ball up quickly and maintained very good distance. No ballooning|
|FEEL/SOUND||A wonderful "click" sound and feel when I connect with the sweet spot.|
|VALUE||Best clubs for the price...PERIOD.|
My opinion on choosing clubs in this day and age is that it comes down Mostly to personal preference. Exceptions exist of course.
Some people are loyal to certain manufacturers. We may like a certain “look.” You might be looking for a balance of performance and value.
I’ve said for a while that all the top companies produce great clubs. It’s a matter of what performs good enough and looks good enough to your eye.
The PRO’s look like players irons and perform like players irons.
My eyes have gotten used to smaller clubheads after hitting a ton of blade irons in the last few months. So, these look great to me and don’t have the intimidation factor common with blades.
Mid – Low Handicap: I see PTx PROs working quite well for low handicaps and mid handicaps with good ball striking…In My Opinion.
I’m an 10.3 and falling and ball striking is my strong point. I love them.
High Handicap: Hard Pass unless you are SERIOUS about getting lessons and seriously working on your game. Prepare for much frustration for a while.
These clubs are hot-off-the-presses so you will likely have to check back often to grab your demos. Well worth it in my opinion.

The PRO's are some of the most beautiful irons on the market today and have all the technology of the big boys. Ben Hogan Golf just puts out one quality iron after another and the PTx PROs are no exception. I loved them and I think the better ball strikers among us will love them as well.
The PRO's are a no-brainer for low handicap players
A good bet for mid-handicaps with superior ball striking skills
Likely a hard pass for high handicappers and beginners
