With courses reopening around the country Ben Hogan is broadening their club offering with the addition of substitute long irons for their recently introduced ICON and PTx Pro irons. Following the successful B2C business plan with Internet only sales that has revived the company finances they say their Fort Worth plant is back in production and already there have been excellent reviews of both the VKTR+ and UiHi models.

“Hitting long irons well has always been a challenge for golfers of all ability levels,” said President and CEO Scott White. “That’s especially true now, as many golfers around the world haven’t been playing much, nor had the opportunity to practice. The UiHi utility irons and new VKTR+ hybrid clubs will make that part of the game a little less daunting for golfers returning to the courses … and in the future.”

In explaining that the new models should be looked at as alternatives or substitutes for long irons plus used in combo sets made up of short and medium irons from the other two new iron models White added, “Passionate, serious golfers have been asking for a combo set option for quite a while, so we are now aligning the new ICON muscle back blades in the short irons with our popular PTx PRO in the mid irons. Better yet, with the UiHi Utility Irons and VKTR+ Hybrids, golfers can choose from a variety of equipment options at the long end of their set. With any selection, golfers will get an exceptional high-performing set of forged golf clubs that look as good as they play.”
