Ben Hogan TK Wedge
Modern wedges bear a puzzling similarity to those dating all the way back to the 1950s, the ones Ben Hogan said should not be hit over 40 yards. (This from a man who was known to hit his driver 300+.) What Mr. Hogan knew was that the heavy bottom and thin upper face caused very inconsistent distances with full swings.
That insight inspired us to completely re-engineer the design of wedges to make them much better at full shots than any other wedge you can play. And we built in even more innovations to make sure they were more versatile around the greens than the wedges currently in your bag.
The new Hogan TK wedges will show you that you are a much better wedge player than you might have thought.
They look different because they play different.
You know that high-face impact that always comes up short? It’s not your fault. It’s built into your ‘conventional’ wedges.
The fact is that trajectory and distance control are the two biggest scoring range challenges for golfers of all skill levels – from you to tour players. Our extensive testing on swing robots and with golfers of all skill levels prove those problems are caused by your wedge design itself.
In the TK wedges, our engineers re-distributed the mass more evenly across the back of the clubhead to fix these faults. So they deliver more penetrating trajectories on full swings, and the distance control on all shots that is so important to scoring range performance.
The most versatile sole design in golf.
Turf conditions are never consistent. Neither are golf swings. Even tour pros’ divots are not always the same. And we all often change our swing path on purpose to hit different shots...
So how could you ever expect one bounce to be right all the time? And how could you ever “fit” bounce at all?
At the heart of every Hogan TK wedge is the renowned V-SOLE® design. For each loft, we blend a high-bounce front section with a low-bounce main portion, so your TK wedges can handle any lie or shot you might face.
It’s really that simple.
Your lob wedge and gap wedge are as different as your 6-iron and hybrid. Why should they look alike?
Your wedges have to be the most precisely engineered clubs in your bag. But while other wedge brands apply the same weighting design to all the lofts, we treated each wedge in your set with focused precision.
In the TK wedges, as loft decreases from the lob wedge down to the pitching wedge, some of the mass is gradually redistributed more toward the heel and toe, and higher on the clubhead. This ensures optimum trajectories on full shots, and improved distance control anywhere. And those shots caught high on the face fly almost exactly like a well-struck shot.
Distance control is the real measure of a good wedge player. And it is built into the new Hogans.
Every wedge loft from 48 to 63 degrees.
Bending a wedge to something it wasn’t designed to be also compromises its bounce and offset. The ultimate commitment to the precision Mr. Hogan demanded drove us to build every loft from 48 to 63 degrees.
So every golfer can put together the exact set of 3-4 wedges that will optimize their distance gapping in prime scoring range and blend to their iron lofts... whether those irons are Hogans or not.
We recommend starting your set of TK wedges with a true “pitching wedge” of 48-51 degrees. This is the club Mr. Hogan’s competitors dubbed “the Equalizer”, and it will quickly become one of your favorite “go to” clubs.
Isn’t this the part of the game where feel counts the most?
Mr. Hogan believed only a quality forging could deliver the feel and feedback crucial to a solid short game. And we concur. For these clubs, forging is just better.
The new TK wedges are forged from 1025 carbon steel in a six step process that delivers extraordinary club-to-club consistency. They provide the ultimate performance and feel that Mr. Hogan demanded.Each iron and wedge starts as an ingot of pure 1025 carbon steel and the bar is bent to begin taking shape as a ‘Hogan’. Then under a series of forming dies, the selected iron head begins to “morph” into a FT. WORTH iron or TK wedge. Each forging die implies a more precise shape, impress more detail and condense the grain of the metal. In reflection of the most modern forging technologies, the last die returns an iron head that is within 3-4% of its final weight and shape. It is now ready for the final polishing, face/groove milling, engraving and final detailing.
We read all the claims, too. Where’s the proof?
The fact is, all top companies push the USGA rules regarding groove geometry right to the limit. Some give their grooves names, and claim them better. But our testing with golfers of all skill levels proves that spin is more of a learned skill than a built-in feature.
That said, Ben Hogan is committed to giving you every advantage allowed ‘by law’, so the Hogan TK wedges feature 100% CNC-milled faces and grooves to optimize your spin performance.
The rest is up to you.
The ‘disconnect’ between your irons and wedges is costing you strokes
Your wedges are your prime scoring clubs. The ones you will call on more than any other clubs in your bag. Settling for off-the-rack lofts, shafts and specs makes no sense at all.
Only Ben Hogan allows you to fully custom-fit your wedges... to you, to your game and to your irons. Regardless of what brand of irons you play.
Our complimentary HoganFit™ Personal Bag Mapping Analysis will show you how your wedges should be configured for optimum scoring.
