I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, or even if this is something people do.

 

But youtube as a social media outlet continues to grow and grow, and with that comes an influx of a lot of information. I've been noticing a lot of golfing youtubers growing and just a lot of channels covering golf being started in general. It may be just myself coming from a younger generation than a lot of people on here (no offense guys) but do other people utilize this resource? I constantly find myself watching course vlogs, product reviews, drills, etc. Similar to things people look to these forums for. Personally, I find a lot of the European guys entertaining: Rick Shiels, Mark Crossfield, Peter Finch to name a few.

 

What are people's opinions on golfing youtubers? Who do you watch regularly? Does anyone on here post youtube videos on golf? Curious as to what people think of this.

I watch those guys you say. I'm in the mid 30's crowd come May 12th. I do get some enjoyment out of those guys. I tend to stay away from how to's.

 

My video for the i200's is my first YouTube attempt. But I'm thinking about doing fast forward rounds on there or something. No one here in the states does the cool stuff like those Gents.

Seems like more and more people are getting into the cinematography aspect of things (drone shots, better camera work, etc.) only making the videos more and more entertaining. And I like that idea, I'm a sucker for golf videos.

I am in my mid-20's so I do fit the "YouTube demographic" and I do find myself watching some golf videos. The two I watch most frequently are Sheils and Finch. I like the midhadicapper reviews and the shenanigans that Finch and Shiels pull together. Those guys really have a great production going on.

 

I have thought for a long while that it would be fun to get a channel up and going myself, but I don't know if it is "in the cards".

I watch the three you just named the most... Shiels, Crossfield, and Finch. I have watched some of Chris Ryan's videos, as he has some decent swing tips. I used to watch Rick for the club reviews, but he does more course vlogs now, which I'm a big fan of. I love watching the vlogs him and Peter put together. I am going to try and make one myself this season, as videography and stuff like that interests me.

There is some absolutely great content on YouTube for sure. Even a guy like me who is closer to 40 (next month) than I want to admit watches a lot of them.

That's what I'm saying he's crazy! I have friends who have played against him in tourneys.

I like both Shiels and Crossfield. They have some entertaining videos and like watching both of the test out new clubs.

I follow a lot of YouTube channels and plan on starting my own to catalog my journey over the next 3 years doubt anyone will watch but it's more for me to keep me motivated as honest.

I think I read somewhere YouTube is the no 2 search engine in the world.

 

I also subscribe to Shiels and Crossfield. I think BetterGolf has some pretty good content. The guy isn't a polished TV Talking head but comes across as someone just like one of us.

 

I think his video and audio quality is actually a lot better than some of the others.

 

I believe he did a stop by MGS HQ awhile back and spoke to Sam and Adam.

 

Also like GolfMonthly and GolfShake.

On a similar note. Who checks out any of the golf companies YouTube pages.

 

I think Srixon has some of the highest quality video that I've seen.

 

Love all the Titleist ones. Especially when they show the TPI facility.

 

Callaway probably has by far the most content and is very good.

 

I subscribe to them all.

Never been a YouTube person. Generally too much data to do on my cell phone and I prefer to not have to watch a video....podcasts are preferred but that would be another topic.

I'm with you on the data, that's why I try to contain my watching when I'm connected to wifi at home, work or panera.  Seems like I'm always at one of the three..ha

 

Podcasts is a good one as well, I think there is a thread on that, I'll see if I can find and resurrect it.
