ICON Irons by Ben Hogan


One Liner:

ICON forged muscle back blade-style irons for better players by Ben Hogan Golf have progressive weighting with a traditional look and solid feel.


If you are looking for classic looking irons with modern weighting the new Hogan ICON may be just the ones.

“Ben Hogan always had exceptionally high standards especially for his blade iron designs. We think the new ICON Irons would be something he would be proud of” said Scott White, CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “In the hands of accomplished players, they will find the ICON Irons offer an unmatched combination of performance, feel and eye appeal as compared to any muscle back blade on the market. This was Mr. Hogan’s mission and we’ve continued that tradition.”

White added, “Offering a high-performance, forged muscle back set like the ICON Irons at a price point of $770 is unimaginable in today’s market, or in recent memory.  It’s thanks to our successful direct-to-consumer business model, which allows golfers to buy direct at BenHoganGolf.com, and avoid the exorbitant retail prices they would pay for clubs of this caliber.”

ICON’s have weaker lofts than many irons now available with gapping of four degrees that Hogan says eliminates the “lopsided distance gaps between irons” seen in competitive models.

Sold only through their website directly to consumers using the D2C business model the company promotes as the reason ICON’s price being $400 to $500 less than if retailed through golf shops or big box stores.

Key Features:

Progressive center of mass—higher for higher lofts & lower for lower lofts
