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.

    If the ball wobbles left to right slightly, it doesn't mean you didn't hit it true, it means you didn't line it up at exactly at 0-180 degrees. its almost impossible to line it up perfectly

    Hey Rick. Great review again. I wondered if and when you were going to evaluate these "new" balls. As always, you covered all of the questions I had on my mind regarding aligning these balls throughout the various golf shots. Very interesting. Since I've never really liked nonwhite balls, I don't think I need anymore colors and alignment thoughts going through my mind when hitting a golf shot. I'll stick with a line on a white ball, but I will try to hit a few of these on the range. Thanks

    I am always the one with the colored balls of my group of buddies. Bought these, though about $8-$10 more then my typically 12 pack (generally hittings the callaway supersofts/hots), just because of how unique they were, and thought for sure id get a good laugh from everyone when we went out. In 2 rounds, ive chipped in 4 times from within 10 yards of the green, two for par, 1 for bogey, and 1 for birdie. Had another shot where i was 60 yards out and hit the pin on an eagle shot and tapped in for birdie... These balls from went from being a joke, to I think my new ball. I am a high 80's to low 90's player... so if i start shaving shots off my game from away from the green... thats going to be huge for me

    Played these today, and actually I really really really liked them. Needed 3 reallys there... However I lined them up sideways off tee where the line is pointing towards me. That way I could make sure I'm lining my club up squarely. Watching them fly is ultra satisfying. Nice and soft on and around the green. And lining it up is obviously great but better within 10-12 feet like Rick said. A little imagination out side of 12 feet was still good but I found myself maybe being to reliant on the line I was making with the ball rather than I reading the line itself. I wouldn't say my drives got any longer than usual. Typical distance for me, but felt like I was able to find the fairway more for some reason. Possibly the ball off the tee. I dunno I just worked for me. I'm a 12 handicapper and shot an 71 net today. I was pleased my score, and felt pretty confident using those balls. I'll be buying more for sure.

    Now that the Pro V1x is the higher launching, spinning ball over the Pro v1 could you do a comparison of the older versions of each ball, compared to the new models. I. E Old Pro V1 vs New Pro V1 Old Pro V1x vs New Pro V1x Old Pro V1x vs New Pro V1 Old Pro V1 vs New Pro V1x I usually buy new but I do have old ones knocking about and do wonder how much of a difference there is when I pull an old model out on the course.

They are cool to look at but -- ya can't see them in the air, no easier to find in the the rough (although you'd think they'd stand out), and they goof me up on the tee. I've come to the conclusion that golf balls are white!!!! :) White for a reason; easier to see, easier to hit -- and not always easier to find but ... more than likely, if ya don't find your ball, you will probably find another white ball. :) Be Safe

    Once you learn to read a green, alignment lines are mostly unnecessary and they're used mostly for shorter puts on even lies Think about classical guitars, they don't have guiding dots at all. What about cellos, violins, etc, etc It would be outrageous if classical pianos had the name of the notes stamped on their keys Enjoy them colors, they look fun, especially on chips and pitches and.... ...never ever align your golf ball from the tee, only the club face, 'cause second shots will mess you up!

Hard to find in the rough The color change in the air is maddening. Only good point is putting. But yes, Rick... that tap in putt vs alignement is annoying... and it will happrn more to higher handicapers... happened to me 5-6 times and I had to realign the ball.. time lost for nothing Will not buy and will stick to my TM RBZ.

    Rick found that he had. To tee the ball so only a single colour was visible to allow him to hit a good shot, dual colour visibility affected his confidence. But surely when it comes to playing your second shot the chances are that the ball will lie with the dual colours visible at an infinite number of permutations and angles, how is that going to affect you shot play Rick???
