  • After months of buildup and debate, the Kris Bryant era has finally begun—and Cubs Nation already has much to love about the hitting instructor's son (and former aspiring dentist) with teeth-rattling power

  • Ty Cobb ruled the Dead Ball era, slapping singles and stealing bases with cold-eyed calculation. Then came the livelier ball—and a free-swinging slugger who stole the spotlight

Ben Hogan Ft. Worth 15 irons

True to the Hogan legacy, the Ft. Worth 15 irons are forged from 1025-carbon steel for a smooth, precise feel. A scalloped rear in each head spreads mass toward the heel and toe to help off-center hits. The V-shaped sole, with a high-bounce leading edge and a low bounce toward the rear, is versatile from various lies. The irons are offered in 28 heads, in 1° increments from 20° to 47°, so players can customize their distance gapping. (Each head is stamped with loft, in degrees, rather than an iron number.) Forged TK 15 wedges come in 48° to 63° lofts. $150 each, steel; $165 each, graphite.
