Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This SEpost channel is designed to help you play better golf, also to help you enjoy your golf more!
I specialise in golf club reviews, golf club unboxing, golf club news, golf club head to heads, and all about golf clubs.
I also want to make you play better golf by providing coaching video on all topics about golf, how to fix your slice, fix your hook, help you drive the golf ball longer, hit your irons more pure, hit your irons closer to the hole and help you draw and fade your golf shots.
I will also help you lower your score by chipping better by stopping you duff and thin chips, pitch the ball closer and also create backspin. Also I will provide you help to putt better and hole more putts!
On this channel I also make fun and entertaining golf content based on crazy and sometimes “gimmicky” golf clubs. I like to cut through the marketing hype about products and I like to give you the honest truth about golf equipment.
If you enjoy the channel make sure you hit subscribe and also tap the notification bell so that you are always notified when I release a new video.

Literally 99% won’t see this but I lost my job due to covid. They shut down all the restaurants in Cook county which then led me to loosing my apartment. I'm currently living out of my car which I try and make the best of. I've applied to a bunch of places I'm hoping to get a call back. if anyone could help me with whatever you could bc I'm needing stuff like hand warmers which I stuff my clothes at night when it's cold. Also cheap burgers/fastfood. I know times are tough for everyone these days but if you're able to help me I have paypal username pay2winlife If you're unable to help I totally understand thank you

I think new golf equipment is a lot like a weight loss fad. It definitely works but in the long run there is no substitute for putting in the work and getting better. I love getting a new club or golf gear and it makes me feel confident, but eventually the true golfer comes out and only practice will truly make me better.

What amazes me is the skill level. He is a guy who cashed a few times on the Euro Tour and he is THAT GOOD. Like, when we are talking Rory or someone like that. How good are they? Clubs help, but the skill level of these guys is stunning.

I really enjoyed James swing and though his results were not what the manufacturers may have hoped for I loved it. Would have liked to hear how he adapted his swing for the various swings he put on those sticks. Hope to see him again.

you do not need fancy sets to play golf, you are right, I started to play golf a year and a half, not the best player by far (hcp 50), and I only play with I7/SW (sometimes I9/PW) and putter (time by time I5 and wood 3 but very rare bc most of the time I fail). Despite this, I manage to do one par and a couple of boggies/double boggies time by time (just that sometimes I go into bunker or in a terrible situation and got very bad hole - very hard to be constant at golf) Anyway, as my friend used to say "You only need a I7 to play golf". Thanks for this video, it gives you motivation to continue improving my swing! Wanna do short game!

andy Dag sedan
i'm not shocked at all. even cheap clubs these days are pretty good, - and a good player will beat someone that is "all the gear, no idea" anyday. The only thing i would say if that i am surprised by the clubs in the half set. given these are probably aimed at players who are higher handicappers, i would expect to see at least down to 5 iron as they wont drive as far and will leave that 180 yard shot alot and many players look at 150 yards as a 7 iron.

So just what irons were available in this set? In the U.S. a cheap set normally has just the 3, 5, 7 and 9 irons, but I hear you talking about the 8 iron? The 7 iron? I'm also surprised to hear you talking about distance in YARDS. I thought you Brits have completely converted to metric. Lastly, care for another suggestion? Have him play with just THREE clubs -- adjustable wood, adjustable iron and the putter.

Slazenger clubs are flying off the shelves. Stock prices for the company hit an all time high. Got my half set on order. Great eye opener to those who think the most expensive clubs are the ticket to lower scores. I've been converted! Thanks James. And Rick for another great video, thinking outside the box.

There are Golfers, then there are GOOD golfers, then there are EXCELLENT golfers, then a leap up to this Guy, and then at least two more levels above him on the tours. Golf is a humbling sport. Mentally and Physically I SHOULD be able to compete with them, in an occasional dream, I mean I don't have to Run, Lift etc. BUT this Guy is SO far beyond my best I am not sure there is a comparison measure!

Not surprising that someone who strikes the ball dead center can make a cheap set work. The purpose of more forgiving clubs is theoretically to help those of us that aren’t perfect ball strikers. How about a video that takes a 20 handicapper and compares their results with the cheap set vs. a better set and see if “expensive” clubs really do help?

I’m a pga golf coach living in Germany and this video is simply brilliant. This is what I try to explain to my golfers all the time. I once shot 5 over for 9 holes with a child’s (6-8 years) half set. I would just love to see James do something like that. I’m almost sure he could shoot par.👏👏👏👍

My first set of $100 Tight Lies from Wal-Mart were responsible for breaking 85 the first time. Playing good golf, at least for amateurs, has absolutely nothing to do with the clubs. I mean, until the heads break off the driver, and the 3-wood halfway through the same round which is what caused me to buy better clubs, lol. I still miss that cheap set though.

I wasn't a tour pro ... but was a pro when younger, played in a tournament or 2 also. I am also in my middle 60s. Better question is > Take a Pro of today ... in their 20s-35 .... now give them the Balls and Clubs Jack, Tom, Lee & Gary played with back in the 60s and 70s > the kind I grew up on with a sweet spot the size of a dime and actual drivers made of Wood ... put them on Augusta or Pebble and lets see what they shoot ... that would be a pay for view worth buying.

Slazenger prices just went up lol. But seriously, having the most expensive equipment doesn’t make you a better player. My entire golf bag has about $450 dollars invested in it. All my clubs are second hand except my wedges and putter. I can play just as good, if not better than my friends with fitted clubs and all new equipment.

Rick, when you openly praise almost every single shot, including the average/bad ones, it eventually becomes irritating to the golfer. We have a friend that does this. Wait for the result then dole out praise when as it’s appropriate.

I had a 3' piece of angle iron in my office (leftover from a construction project) that I messed around with as a putter on the carpet. Within a week, I got to where I could drain anything from anywhere. I never played with it on a course, but it would have been no worse than the putter in my bag. I've always felt that fancy clubs are a little overrated. And guys think they can buy lower scores.

Its the same in snooker. Some people think if they buy an expensive cue, it will make them a better player. Couldnt be any further from the truth. Ken Dohery won a world championship in snooker with a cue he claimed from a snooker club when he was 10. He paid £2 for it, not a bad investment.
