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’s just an amazing place to play golf! I won a completion with Mercedes for getting my car serviced there, 18 winners went there and stayed at St. Andrews hotel and played Kingbarnes with caddies included and tipped, I played the New course which was nice but if I wanted to play the old course it was get up at 4:00am with free drink and a meal in the R&A club that was not happening , will remember that weekend the rest of my life . And will be back to play the old course one day

    Im a total beginner golfer and this video gave me the courage to go out and buy some hand me down used garbage clubs from goodwill, (almost an entire set). You made me realize It doesnt matter about skill level to have certain equipment. Just go out and use what you have and get comfortable/ used to it. This past week i have been binge watching your videos and you along with a few friends have helped so much. I have found a new love. Thank you!
