Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This SE-one 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.

      Rick, you did a video a little while ago on three things you can do to play your best golf. I've always shot in the high 90s, with the odd game right at 90 or the odd one at 100. After watching that video and staying relaxed, not tensing up, and breathing through the shots, I shot a 42 on nine holes! By far the best score I've ever had! Your tips and method of teaching are spot-on and my game is steadily improving because if it! Thanks for these lessons, keep them coming!

    My bestfriend and I keep 2 scores when we are golfing. When we are golfing at the end of the hole we give 2 numbers. Those number could be 7 & 2, 6 & 3 etc. The first number is the total shots for the hole. The 2nd number is the number of putts. This way at the end of the round we can divide the game into 2 sections. We can see the total number of shots but then we also know how many of those shots were putts. There have been some holes were the score is 4 & 0. I holed the cup on the approach shot!!! We also tried the Pulara straight golf balls and we were not thrilled with them.

    Such great tips, Rick! My biggest take away was the first one. I usually try to use my 60 degree Vokey but end up either hitting it off the green or flopping it 2 feet in front of me but this weekend I played more conservative and used a 9 iron and set myself up nicely. I also didn't use my 3 wood or hybrid, instead I used my 4 and 5 iron and kept it in the fairway. I only play maybe 10 games a season so playing smarter is the better way to go and enjoy this game we all love. Cheers!

    Soooooo... I watched this video last week. Took notes and decided to give it a shot and WOW! what a difference went from normally shooting 110 plus to a freaking 90 yesterday just making a few changes in this video. The most important one for me was playing the harder holes as a par 6. Instead of trying to hit hero shots I played shorter irons and ended with bogey almost every time. Best I've played in a while!

I feel if I can become a great iron player, I’ll be able to be successful without yet needing to master the driver. Excited to get on a golf course!

    Played with my dad the other day. He used a 7 iron to bump onto the green pretty much every hole. Only pulled out a true wedge when in the bunker once. He hit an 82 on a par 70 while I hit a 101 and was out driving him on most of the holes. The biggest change that I made since then was your very first tip. Not going for the prettiest shot. However you have to get it on the green in the least amount of shots, do it. I’ve teed up my 5 iron (my longest iron) more than I’ve teed up my driver in the last few sessions

    So I have not played golf since the 1990’s but recently decided to get back into it by playing with my 14 year old son. So I dust off my old Callaway’s and buy my son a used set of Wilson Irons and we are ready. Armed with the Rick Shiels video on how to break 100 we go to the old country club course in New Albany Indiana. In the clubhouse we see that pretty much every record at the course is held by former Masters and US Open winner Fuzzy Zoeler. This was the course he learned to play on. Our goal for 9 holes was to break 50. Fuzzy’s record for 18 was 62. We had a great time and I got a 52 while my son hit 54. When we get home my wife asks how we did and I say “Well we both beat Fuzzy’s course record.

    So one tip I would add is "leave yourself your favourite shot", for me thats 125yd full PW. On a 400yd par 4 tee work back from the green - the percentage play for me is 2 8 irons and a PW - NOT flukey driver followed by miracle 6 iron. I just need the self discipline to remember this more often!

    As someone who is yet to break 100, I can comfortably say that these tips do very little to fix the main problem for players like myself - consistency. All the course strategy in the world does nothing to help when you're just as likely to duff a "safe" shot as you are a "hero" shot. That's not to say that strategy isn't part of the discipline of course. It just isn't going to help players until their percentages are high enough for any choices to have an impact. Case in point, I hit a 9 on a par 4 last week. Bogey plus two water balls. Water was just to my right after the tee shot. Went with the "hero" option first and chose a club that would reach the green with a 1 in 5 chance, with a 3 in 5 that it would scuff along only 50 yards or so, and a 1 in 5 that I'd horribly slice. Got the horrible slice and landed in the far end of the lake. Replaced the ball. Opted for the "safe" 8 iron. It's a 50/50 good or complete scuff. Scuffed it back into the lake. Went back to the hero, landed it to the side of the green, chipped and two putted to close it out. Sometimes it all comes together for a birdie, but usually the percentages play out such that I average a double bogey without going out of bounds or hitting a hazard. Sadly that hasn't improved in 3 years. What's kept me going is that the quality of my good shots has improved significantly. When the percentages finally increase I'll break 100. Before that happens though, no chance.
