-Good golf shots?  in a sense

-Shot tracers?  nah

-Lessons/tips?  definitely not.

-Course Vlogs? doesn't do much for me.

-Humor? not a horrible thing

-Personalities? some personality is helpful;  monotone really doesn't make it interesting

-Reviews?  nah,  I like to evaluate my own clubs.

 

The only things I really watch on Youtube are TXG specifically for the education they provide on how to fit clubs and how to evaluate the clubs you are testing.   I watch No Putts given (if I didn't listen to the podcast) because I know Harry and am interested in what they have to say....sometimes gives us a topic to talk about while I am testing.

Everything TXG does. I cannot get enough of their Knowledge, skill set and mild humor. They are by far the best you tube in the golf section

I am also a huge fan of TXG... best there is on You Tube.

There are a few others I enjoy, but TXG is the bar for knowledge, truth and honesty IMO.

Short & to the point, no fluff

Don't try to sell me something

Back up claims with data

Most importantly-have credibility. Not every club from every manufacturer can be "Better" than every previous generation!

  • -Lessons/tips? Meh
  • -Course Vlogs? Fun
  • -Humor? Meh
  • -Personalities? Meh
  • -Reviews? If they're good

    For me though...my number one is technical details.  Can't get enough tech.

TXG is the go to now. Don’t see any one doing anything better. No fluff like “ I played a 17 handicap with a pro flight “ crap.

TXG have lapped basically everyone in the space exception Rick Shiels who relies on enthusiasm over data....They will close in on him soon enough.  I think he fills the high hcp or mid capper space for creating club hype.  TXG seems more for the low capper space on YT.

I can't vote for any of those because quality is the most important to me. 

Any video based on hype or click bait is a guaranteed thumbs down for me. This pretty much goes for any review that is an advertisement rather than a look at what something does based on its merits. 

Txg is the only golf video channel I watch regularly. 

I watch Jack Nicklaus's golf my way video every couple months too.
