What's your favorite golf YouTube channel?


Recommended Posts

I've always really enjoyed Peter Finch. Seems very down to earth and has some great content.

Also loves Golfholics footage and they seem to just have a lot of fun with what they are doing.

I'm sure there are many more out there that are great and I can't wait to watch some of the ones listed above. Hard to get too much good golfing content

Who is your favorite golf YouTuber and why? Mine is Mark Crossfield for his daily vlogs. He gives great simple advice that actually works. Plus his content makes golf fun and enjoyable and not too ser

Just saw this and couldn't hit share fast enough. I really enjoy Mark Rober's work even before he did the stolen package bomb. For something golf related, check out this video he made trying to reprod

just caught this guy - MrShortGame... his story is he went from playing w/his grandpa for the first time at 18 to joining the SDSU golf team in a couple years...

 

anyhow - high energy/short videos that sometimes funny.

 

This one is interesting.  He wanted to simulate "pressure" situations in golf so he put an electronic dog collar on his leg and gave his son the remote; any time he faulted under pressure he got a zap.  kinda funny.

How I rank the golf vloggers (I actually watch):

  1. Andrew Jensen
  2. Golfholics
  3. Mark Crossfield
  4. Peter Finch
  5. Rick Shiels
  6. Fried Eggs
  7. Me & My Golf

 

Also of note if you haven't been paying attention, James Wiltshire (aka Gorilla James from some of Crossfield's older videos) is back at it and preparing to compete in long drive. Watching that guy's ball flight is just pure gold every time.

I like Mark Crossfields VLOGS with the My Golf Travel guys. Fast paced 3 hole segments with great production values. I'm looking forward to this years offerings.

 

As far as the equip testing and instruction go, I'm less interested in any of the youtube channels. As a believer in the "it's the Indian, not the Arrow" theory I need to test golf stuff myself.

Puttsaround is a really good exciting YouTube channel. He does have knowledge not sure what his background is (coach/pro) but he is straight to the point. I also enjoy the fact that he does have a swing net in his garage. To me that's pretty down to earth.

I'm currently subscribed to:

 

Shawn Clement-He's really easy to understand and has a simple task-oriented method of teaching that I like a lot.

Top Speed Golf-These guys are really wired tight! Very easy to understand and they have fantastic drills that really help.

Mark Crossfield-Great reviews and I love that wry British humor.

Fried Eggs Golf-Randy here has world-class production value, is incredibly funny, insightful and humble. This is the channel I look forward to seeing most often. I just don't understand why he doesn't have a billion subscribers yet..! Come on Spies, help him out! Randy is absolutely f-ing hilarious!

Take a group of 5 players who do nothing but watch you-tube video instruction and another group of five who take lessons from a quality local teaching pro.

 

Guys must be willing to spend time practicing what they learn. Track them over a six month season and see what happens.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I have already done this test for myself.  I took lessons from pros, did indoor lessons with video monitors etc.  I did all the practice that the instructors told me to do.  I got better, but it took a long time and the improvement didn't last season to season.  The problem was all the lessons were technique oriented, "fix this problem and you'll play better."  Albeit, I did have a couple fo playing lessons that were beneficial.

 

Last year I discovered Shawn Clement and his approach to learning the swing and (most importantly for me) the mental approach.  I improved dramatically.  This year the improvements have stuck and I continue to improve.  

 

This year I continue to do the drills that Shawn recommends, but have moved on to focusing on the skill side of things and a strong mental game.  The Vision54 books have been eye opening for this.  

 

For me, I had enough "fix the swing" lessons; they were a dead end.  What's Einstein's definition of insanity?  Shawn got me out of the rabbit hole of playing golf swing and on the course playing golf.  

 

As always, YMMV.

Interesting idea but I think the test would have to be weighted somehow. Are you talking total beginners or someone knowledgeable about the golf swing. I think the results would vary significantly. You may also want to ad a category of personalized online instruction where the lessons is tailored to your swing.

 

I think the biggest problem with online is making sure you are doing the drills correctly and knowing which drills apply to you. Really no different than reading he 100+ cure you slice tips from any golf magazine.

@cnosil

 

That is exactly why I have little doubt that the lesson group would do better regardless who the golfers are. The key is it must be a reputable local PGA pro.

 

With all due respect to alfriday I've had three such teachers in my life - none wanted to “fix” anyone's swing. All they wanted to do was help people play the best possible golf. However I know that there are guys out there like the guy you're describing. I think they have programs on you-tube. :)

 

And yes I absolutely agree that results may vary so that's why I'm saying take five for each group.

 

I would be happy to add a third group made up of folks who send videos and take lessons that way. I'd expect that group to finish in the middle. It may be the best option for some who don't have access to a reputable teacher.

I really enjoy watching instructors working with amateurs struggling to break 90 or so.I really get turned off by instructors who always focus on their Star students.

Keep it in the short stuff

Mark Crossfield by a country mile. The production on his vlogs are superb as is the content. Always entertaining and I like the way he challenges the 'norm' especially golf myths.

Tour experience golf (TXG) is the only YouTube channel i am watching regularly. They content is well done and communicated at a level anyone can understand. They do a great job explaining what they do to get an optimal fit for clubs. Their videos may appear long if you just look at the times, but that time just flys by.
