Mr. Hogan started his company in 1953 with the stated promise and intense focus of building better golf clubs. We inherited that passion for excellence, and in our opinion, one of the most puzzling golf club design principles is the notion that all the irons in a set should look alike.
Why should a 5- or 6-iron share the same weighting scheme as a ‘P’-club? Those two clubs are more than 20 degrees apart, the same as between that mid-iron and the driver. Has anyone ever wanted a driver to look like their 6-iron?
Not even close. Between that middle iron and the driver, we have hybrids and fairway woods. So, why would we have four completely different head designs to cover the range from driver to the 6-iron, but only one to cover the same 18 to 20 degrees to the ‘P-club’? No matter how hard we tried, we just couldn’t make
sense of that.
The Ben Hogan solution was to design each iron and wedge to deliver optimum performance for its particular loft. The FORT WORTH 15 irons with 20-23 degrees are different from the 24-27s. And those are different from the 28-31s. That progressive weighting continues all the way through the TK 15 wedges to 63 degrees.
So, in your set of Hogans, each club looks slightly different from the one on either side, and every one of them will deliver penetrating trajectories and optimum ball flight, matched to your strength profile. And each will allow you to flight the ball up or down with confidence, and control your distances like you were throwing darts.
Progressive weighting. It is just one more “arrow in your quiver” when you and your Hogans take on anyone. Read about the other Hogan technologies HERE, or go straight to your HoganFit prescription HERE, and let us build you a set to prove it.
