Rick Shiels / Mark Crossfield videos

Recommended Posts

I really enjoy watching Rick Shiels when he compares golf clubs. He really breaks it down for the user in a way that uses the numbers but justifies it with feel.

I like watching both for club testing and reviews but look to Hall and Breed for instruction.

 

Good point about North American versions of Crossfield and Shiels. Be great if we had some non-uk vlogs to go to.

What are you favorite golf video blogs on youtube?   

 

I started watching Mark Crossfield a couple of years ago and he's got some good stuff.

 

Recently found Rick Shiels videos on youtube and the thing I like about him is he's got a tester that is a mid-handicap hitting clubs and giving his feedback.

I love watching Rick's videos. I usually like his honest reviews on clubs.

Rick's biggest weakness is psychological. He lacks confidence and decisiveness on the course. From the course vlogs he misses in bad spots and forces himself away from his strengths. He is self-deprecating to almost an extreme.

 

Crossfield has the mental game but is less physically gifted. Peter Finch seems like if you put Crossfield's brain in Rick Sheils' body.

I'm a big fan of Shiels, Finch, Crossfield and the MeandMyGolf boys on Youtube. Like other people have noted, there are differences in their approaches to the game - Rick's a bit more focused on club-testing and little bit of coaching, whereas the other 3 are more based on coaching (particularly MeandMyGolf and Crossfield). Also, Crossfield is more likely to go into the theory of various things (he's got a few videos about strike, etc. that are on GolfWRX and Youtube right now).

Mark crossfield
Rick Shiels
Me and my golf
Golfbox
Fried eggs golf (not sure if they're still in the game)
Golfaholics
The average golfer

I think the guys I feel like I most relate to out of this list are the Golfholics guys....I'm not quite at their level yet but they play similar to my style and their videos are top notch and they play some beautiful courses.  They have mastered the use of the drone!

If you enjoy Rick Shiels, watch the Erik Anders Lang video series "Isle of Man" on Youtube.  It's pretty great.

I enjoy the Golfholics videos, you are correct about the drone shots. Mr. Short Game is also pretty good if you're into the Golfholics style. I particularly enjoy Golfholics and Mr. Short Game because they talk through their shot choices a lot. It's a good way in my opinion to work on the mental aspects of my game.
