Ben Hogan clubs have been around over 70 years and are now part of Golf Brands Inc. who also own the MacGregor, TearDrop, Ram and Zebra brands.

The PTx Tour irons are specifically designed to be a combo set with different construction as the loft changes. The 4- and 5- irons are a four-piece head that is hollow, and foam filled with tungsten interior weights to enhance forgiveness.

The 6-iron is a three-piece head with no tungsten weight and is meant to fill the gap between low lofted long irons and the shorter, scoring more lofted irons.

Seven and 8-irons are also three-piece with a co-forged titanium insert which raises the center of gravity as a way to counteract “ballooning.” The 9-iron and pitching wedge are one-piece forged heads with a typical blade look.
