MY NEW IRONS? | Ping i59 review
PGA PRO Rick Shiels wasn't looking for new irons until he saw these beautiful Ping i59 irons. But will they be better than the current TaylorMade P7MC irons he has in the bag?

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.

      Hello Rick, Love watching your channel. Recently watched you and a Pro play St. Andrews with old Tom Morris type clubs. Made me decide it was time for me to take a trip from across the pond and play it. I live in North Carolina, USA. I'm 63 and play to around a 1 handicap. Hoping you could give me some great advice about handling this exciting adventure. MY girl friend will be coming with me but does not play. Would be great to play with local low handicap players Sincerely, Michael Osborne

    Price disgusting but when you get them for next to nothing I suppose you can change clubs every 5mins I like Rick but this looking for more forgiveness and then playing blade like clubs and also going for looks That is wrong and promotes high handicappers to change and the posers to buy club that are not suited If you are playing and enjoying golf with bad looking clubs un high branded what is wrong with that Oh what that in your bag syndrome from mates Let-put £1600 clubs in the bag and play like a prattbut I look good wrong message!!!!

Many thanks Rick, but I recon the price of these clubs have put your followers off! There's no quick fix to ones golf, new clubs isn't going to fix ones game, I advise one to get a lesson and stop giving your clubs the blame, check your down swing and your aim, many a times one can hate this game, keep churning out your reviews Rick which helps us out here with our game, my thumbs are up always Rick watching you loving this game!

    exactly the same for me as a high handycapper but with taylormade sim2 max and ping g425. The pings look better, feel better but are more expensive, but man I just hit these taylormade irons better. And they are half the price as well.

    Rick, you need to get your irons custom fitted ie loft angle adjusted and (as importantly) the right shaft to suit your swing! You should then do a test with standard off the shelf irons v the same irons custom fitted to your swing. Performance will only really come with custom fitted irons. Love your vids!

    I know the Titleist T 300 irons is not your style of clubs being a little more on the chunky side but I think you should test them in the future video . I have heard a lot scratch golfers say that they would play them or even a mix set with the T 200 irons because of the forgiveness and consistency of them . And mixed or blended sets seem to be the thing over the last few years . I’m in my 50’s and have really enjoyed playing with my first generation T300’s irons keeping my rounds in the 70’s 👍🏌🏻‍♂️⛳️ sometimes we have to have an open mind and swallow our pride and stop trying to hit clubs that might not be very consistent or forgiving and put clubs in the bag that will make golf more enjoyable and consistent 😉 you may be pleasantly surprised on the consistency of distance and mid to hi ball flight and dissent angle of the T300 irons . Best game improvement Irons I have tried in the last 10 years.

    hi Rick , love the channel, always informative and entertaining. Regarding the Ping i59 irons, those mid and short irons were not the fault of the clubs, when your swing path results in a hard draw or a pull draw, THERE IS NO IRON THAT EXISTS THAT WILL COMPENSATE FOR IT. That is the fault of your swing if you make a swing with a nice path and hit the ball off center then that is when the forgiveness will help you. Don't blame a great iron for a poor swing path, Ping i59's are not going to be a very forgiving club, but certainly more forgiving than a traditional blade. When you made good swings they performed amazing with great feel and trajectory. You know that your normal miss with any club is hard draw or a pull draw. Best of luck with your decision and keep the great videos coming...i never miss one. Cheers from Canada
