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.

    It has been a rough journey for irons, but I have been making some progress. What has unlocked it so far has been working with shorter irons and focus on takeaway and doing half swings as I feel like I can maintain the path of entry shallower and much more fluid coming into ball strike. I have been able to get good strikes on wedges and and even some on my 9 and 8 irons on shorter swings (Example - half swings on on 9 iron gets me 100 to 110). Where I begin to struggle is when I go up past half way on my back swing and begin to hinge the club and then try to come down back into the slot. I feel like I lose my path back in. I keep going back and forth on how much rotation to do to get back to parallel position and when to release the club. This is a game of feel and sensation and I am struggling to get the right sensation during the 2nd half of the back swing and beginning of down swing. I have been able to get some swings to do it right, but it is few and far in between. What do you recommend?

    The best tutorial on using the Irons I've ever seen! By far! I'm almost 79 and have taken a good number of hands-on lessons and watched videos of "TopGolf Instructors", but you provide the best explanation & demonstration of all. Too many "Instructors" talk throughout the lesson instead of pointing out one's swing flaws and actually demonstrating the correct swing. You have become my "Go-To" instructor! Well done indeed!

    Hi Rick, not germane to this video, but wanted to use your latest video to be able alert you asap as to what Cobra is doing now in retail sales because you review Cobra F9 etc. so favourably. I bought online a F9 Driver from a big local big box golf shop (Canada). They listed it as a F9s, the "s" meant nothing because their online ad, write up said nothing about the fact that when I got the club it had NO MILLED FACE! Nor were the words printed on the face re "milled face" . Challenging the store, they said it was F9"s" which meant no milled face, too bad so sad, your problem (but can return it thankfully). Huh, their pictures online if you look close showed milled, no description said NOT milled, etc. The website itself listed NO such animal as a F9"s". The club marking itself is still saying F9 period, no s, and looks 100% identical to the normal F9 in all other ways! Sure, the price was reduced, but hey, it is a 2019 club! But now without milled face, really it is a

    I’ve used this 3rd tip so much. And it helps tremendously. It feels like I’m lowering the loft but I get such great strikes and really good loft on the ball. It’s honestly I think the best tip for striking irons. Love these videos. Went from hitting over 100 to breaking 90 multiple times this year using a lot of your tips you share!

    See now I’m confused because here you say the woods should be on the inside of your left heel but in another video you have the ball positioned almost in the middle of your stance, but 1 ball length towards your left foot but still it’s almost in the middle. I’m just confused because here you say your woods should be on the inside of your left heel but In another video towards the middle

You should do a challenge to see if you can get a new golfer to hit a par by the time they get to the final hole. I volunteer to be that person if you're ever in the states in the near future.
