Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This SEtoos 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.

    Literally 99% won’t see this but I lost my job due to covid. They shut down all the restaurants in Cook county which then led me to loosing my apartment. I'm currently living out of my car which I try and make the best of. I've applied to a bunch of places I'm hoping to get a call back. if anyone could help me with whatever you could bc I'm needing stuff like hand warmers which I stuff my clothes at night when it's cold. Also cheap burgers/fastfood. I know times are tough for everyone these days but if you're able to help me I have paypal username pay2winlife If you're unable to help I totally understand thank you

    I've always told people they are idiots to buy expensive clubs. You can either hit it or you can't. It's your swing, NOT the clubs. Granted a premium set will likely give you a little more distance, but I've hit my $15 driver from K-Mart as far as 340 yards... and I hit a high trajectory with very little roll.

  21. Tom van Kamperdijk

    The Gospel: We sin against God and for our sins we deserve hell. We fall short of God’s perfect standard for heaven. But the good news is we have a way to be forgiven, that way is through Jesus. Because he loved the world, he came, lived a sinless life then died on the cross for our sins, paying the price which is death. He was buried and rose again on the third day. Through Jesus we can be forgiven of our sins. If we put our faith in him we will be saved ✝️❤️

    My company's 40 man weekly league had a 5 club round last year that had an all time low scoring average. Guys that own the latest club$ were real quiet while staring into their beers. Next year we are going to randomly pick a week and one plays with his opponent's gear. Everything but the glove and spikes.

    the bigger handicap was the missing clubs, not the cheapness. Only saw quality show an issue with driver. A lot of puts a foot short instead of a foot past probably because he wasn't used to the weight of the putter.

    I think new golf equipment is a lot like a weight loss fad. It definitely works but in the long run there is no substitute for putting in the work and getting better. I love getting a new club or golf gear and it makes me feel confident, but eventually the true golfer comes out and only practice will truly make me better.

    you do not need fancy sets to play golf, you are right, I started to play golf a year and a half, not the best player by far (hcp 50), and I only play with I7/SW (sometimes I9/PW) and putter (time by time I5 and wood 3 but very rare bc most of the time I fail). Despite this, I manage to do one par and a couple of boggies/double boggies time by time (just that sometimes I go into bunker or in a terrible situation and got very bad hole - very hard to be constant at golf) Anyway, as my friend used to say "You only need a I7 to play golf". Thanks for this video, it gives you motivation to continue improving my swing! Wanna do short game!

    i'm not shocked at all. even cheap clubs these days are pretty good, - and a good player will beat someone that is "all the gear, no idea" anyday. The only thing i would say if that i am surprised by the clubs in the half set. given these are probably aimed at players who are higher handicappers, i would expect to see at least down to 5 iron as they wont drive as far and will leave that 180 yard shot alot and many players look at 150 yards as a 7 iron.

  86. Mike Carlson

    So just what irons were available in this set? In the U.S. a cheap set normally has just the 3, 5, 7 and 9 irons, but I hear you talking about the 8 iron? The 7 iron? I'm also surprised to hear you talking about distance in YARDS. I thought you Brits have completely converted to metric. Lastly, care for another suggestion? Have him play with just THREE clubs -- adjustable wood, adjustable iron and the putter.

    There are Golfers, then there are GOOD golfers, then there are EXCELLENT golfers, then a leap up to this Guy, and then at least two more levels above him on the tours. Golf is a humbling sport. Mentally and Physically I SHOULD be able to compete with them, in an occasional dream, I mean I don't have to Run, Lift etc. BUT this Guy is SO far beyond my best I am not sure there is a comparison measure!
