Rick Shiels / Mark Crossfield videos

Recommended Posts

I’ve given up on these two guys. Used to enjoy their content. But now it’s as if Rick is tip toeing around not to make OEM’s mad, and Mark... has gotten a little crazy as he aged. I don’t like goofball stuff, and that is what I see.

Plus marks short game is that of a 20 handicap.

Rick certainly didn't tip toe around Ping and Titleist in a video this week where he ripped them for the G410 LST and TS1/4.

One of the reasons I stopped watching him. Ping came out and said the last would be a summer release. The ts1/4 makes perfect sense for titleist. Give the two ends of the spectrum something to fit their needs that weren’t there almost a year ago at the release. 

Both companies release when something is better than previous release. Getting a low spin head in ts4 based on feedback from pros with their experience with the ts3 and then release after others had their stuff out for a few months

Yeah, that video irked me. Everyone knew an LST was on the way as soon as they could beat the previous one. Rick's saying the rep he spoke too said they didn't have any plans to even make one when he asked which is just not even remotely accurate. Nor do I think Titleist had any desire when TS2/3 were first launched to introduce a TS1/4 so his ripping of them for that is also just silly. They were more a response to Titleist not reaching certain areas of the market when TS2/3 first came out. I can't for the life of me figure out how that's a bad thing, to offer a wider range of clubs to suit a wider range of golfers.

Though it wasn't as bad as Golf Vlogs UK and his 4 video series ripping PXG drivers without doing a shred of research on them (he roasted the naming scheme continually without bothering to look up why it's called the 0811).

Rick is about click bait these days which is fine because it’s about views to get the ad dollars from YouTube. He’s also anti releases and for whatever reason choices are bad.

pxg is a brand that has very little middle ground they are either a love or hate brand and many of the haters just hate without doing any research or testing the gear.

I subscribe to and enjoy both.  I like both for their club reviews and their honesty.

I tend to respect the Me & My Golf guys opinion the most (on instruction). But I certainly enjoy watching Crossfield and Shiels. At the end of the day, it's all about idea generation, and not gospel. Everyone's game is so unique, it's important to know when to incorporate a new idea and when to ignore something because it doesn't fit your game.

I'm pretty sure I've commented before about who I prefer and why, but anymore who gives a flip?!!! I'd rather be golfing than watching any of them!!!

Used to watch both but then found GolfVlogsUK, the Average Golfer, TXG, Golf Sidekick and Mike Newton.  That's a good blend of tech, comedy, course vlog, course management and club testing.   Matt from Golf Sidekick has probably helped my game more than anyone by helping me think my way around the course better.  He's also entertaining and right to the point, no fluff.
