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.

    I’m always going off to the right but today I hit a shot I was very impressed with I started the hole by hitting it slightly off to the right and it landed on the bank of a pond then I managed to hit the ball have it skim over the water and land on the other side I wish I could have recorded it but I think it’s by far the best shot I’ve ever done 😂

    Many years ago I went to a wedding at a golf course. We stayed on the course for two nights, and with nothing else to do I went to the driving range. I hadn't played golf since I was in school, but had been playing a lot of field hockey. I had to buy a club at the proshop(a 6 iron), but when I tried to hit with it there was a wicked slice, it went as far right as it did forwards. The range was otherwise empty, so the manager/coach came over and gave me this exact same lesson, rebuilt my swing from a hockey stab to a smooth in to out. Turns out golf is enjoyable after all.

    All this is good. My problem is that when I go 'around the body' I stop getting a good trajectory of the ball so it is either a very low hooked ball (very much 'around'), a fairly low straight ball ('around') or a high sliced one (probably over the top but from that tilted position so it does not really go 'over' but still has the 'outside in' swing path). How to go 'around' but still get a consistent 'upwards' hit. I feel there is some (simple?) trick missing here.

    I don't comment very much on videos, but this one I had to. The idea of swinging a baseball bat has fundamentally changed my swing thoughts. I have struggled to get my hands out for fear of hitting it right and I worked with my coach for a long time on it, and still couldn't do it consistently. Well this idea changed my game, I shot the best I had ever shot, which is only 95 but for me was groundbreaking and I could find 6 shots in my game to break 90 that day. Thank you for this and all your other videos.

    Rick Shiels' tips fixed my massive slive a couple years ago. My slice is still fixed today up to the point in the game where I get overly cocky, lose my positioning, and try to murder the ball. At times like these, I come back for a quick refresher and ego check. Cranking a ball 294 yds straight down the fairway once wrongfully inflates my already big head

    Slicers, don't play the Kirkland golf balls. They are the #1 highest spinning "premium" ball. Use a lower spin ball like a Taylormade Tour Response. You will lose a few yards, but you'll be playing from the fairway more often.

    I fixed my slice by taking my wrists out of the equation. On your back swing twist with your torso and do not crack your wrists. You won’t make as big as a back swing but you’ll still get great distance. Kinda like Rahm’a shorter back swing. Try it.

    Spent my entire life hitting 300 yard drives…150 straight, 150 straight right. Then a buddy told me to put a thin coating of vaseline on my driver face. Now i hit the ball at least 280yrds straight down the middle every time. And i mean EVERY time. Golf is so much more fun now! I'm just a hacker who has scored 98-105 for years, now i'm shooting in the mid eighties. Call it cheating if you wish, but i never play for money, and enjoy the game ten times more then ever before. And i rarely lose a ball (never more than one a round) now where before i'd go through over half a dozen, i was always hitting out of the trees, leading to tougher third and fourth shots, and lots of frustration. Now i hit it down the middle, so i have chances hole after hole to use the proper iron to reach greens in regulation, hence either putt or chip for the odd birdie, or two putt or go up and down for par. Call it cheating if you want, i call it making the four hours outside with my buddies a lot more enjoyable.

    My experience seeing people who slice (myself included in the past) has nothing to do with anything in this video. It's the same reason they slice their long irons. They don't turn the hips soon enough (and/or far enough... or at all) and rush the downswing. This causes all the other problems listed in the video. Problem is that if you know what I've just said, you don't slice. If you're a slicer, you have no idea what I'm talking about. You may think you do, but you don't. For people who can't do a proper swing with the hip turn, they'll have to do with these hacks. You'll also be missing tons of power. Go see a pro.
