Ben Hogan Ft. Worth 15s

I am beginning to customize then build my Ft. Worth 15s. I got a great deal on these. They were new/never hit! I removed the original paint fill and am going to repaint them. I bought Red and Blue Lamkin UTx grips and custom ferrules from Cell-parts.net.

If you’re not committed to those ferrules yet I’d highly highly recommend checking out BB&F Co.

They’re pumping out some gorgeous combinations.

Yeah, I looked at them before I ordered the white ones. Thought about getting the “Nantucket Glory” ferrules but for the extra expense, I didn’t love them. Plus, I am going with a red, white, and blue theme with my bag, clubs, head covers, etc.

How do you like the Ft. Worth Hi? I am thinking about going 19* 23* 27* VKTR, then 31*-59* irons? But, might go FTW Hi in the 31* as well.

I’ve never had more confidence in my longer irons. You don’t even need to go vector with these, they’re that easy.

Watch Rick Shiels review them on his YouTube channel. They go up and they go high and they go straight.

I hope so. Finding the 55* TK wedge was like a needle in a haystack. Going to put Nippon Modus shafts in them. Not sure if it will be the 105, 120, or 125 Stiff or X-Stiff. Will figure that out when I get fitted.

How do you go about finding the right shaft for these heads at a fitter?  I am considering getting a fitting to evaluate the C-Tapers in my PTx's, but I don't understand how they can evaluate the right shaft for my heads without a head to try multiple shafts in.

I demoed the VKTR hybrids when I was trying the irons...that thing is great! I was tattooing the 20* uphill into the wind 220 yards!

Two choices...demo the shaft in a very similar iron head and then choose from there or the fitter will have to install/uninstall the different shafts in your clubs as you test using quick set epoxy. I found the PTX to be very similar to the Mizuno JPX 919 Forged/Tour irons. You could use them as a stand in head and then install those shafts in your PTXs.

How do you like you Ft. Worth Hi irons compared to the regular long irons?

What or who is Druthers? We are gonna be a little north of Albany...Schenectady, Rotterdam, Clifton Park, Ballston Spa...maybe Saratoga Springs.


It’s a great brewery / restaurant.

My wife is from Saratoga. If you need some places to visit feel free to PM me.

Ok. We was up that way last summer. Had my daughter in my profile picture baptised at this big Catholic church in Schenectady, where all my wife's family was baptised. Went to great escape. She made me stop at this place in Saratoga for something called "doughboys"? Wasn't a fan myself. I don't like cream cheese or buffalo wing sauce.

It’s an acquired taste. Being from western New York we put buffalo wing sauce on nearly anything.

Safe travels and good luck with the clubs. Excited to see the final product
