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

  1. I'm a laughable 36 handicapper (I swear it's the putting lol). Got the darkspeeds about a month ago and I love them but the grey scratches alot! In fact I've even seen some marks on the plastic inserts which is a smidge annoying but they're nice clubs. Not as light as day the Callaway big Bertha's but nice clubs

  2. It would be great for these videos if you could have a picture of the impact spot on the golf club so we can see how the club performs when struck off-centre

  3. I bought my first set of clubs 10 years ago. I just happened to be scrolling thru and saw this review.
    It's crazy to think, my Yellow Nike Vapor Speed was considered strong lofted back then, at 32 deg 7 iron 44 deg PW; and now 10 years later the clubs have shifted one entire number.
    The ping is equal to my 6 and the PW is equal to my 9.

  4. I suppose one factor that you haven’t mentioned is how tough the steel composite is and how easily it can damage. I really enjoyed the review thank you.

  5. I need to upgrade my forgiving irons to some traditional lofts… It's so silly when your 7-iron goes 180 yards ???? I agree, they're so easy to start left and cause issues with distance unless you want to carry 4 wedges and exceed 14 clubs.

  6. I’ve never understood why more people don’t play forgiving irons…the pros far outweigh the cons. One con being that the ball “doesn’t feel as soft off the face” is totally ridiculous. The results matter, especially to us mortals. Feel shouldn’t be relevant

  7. This video is exactly why I re-shafted my clubs 3 yrs ago. I started playing again 6 yrs ago and bought a set of King Cobra II’s that were made in 1996. The old gentleman I bought them from took very good care of them as they were n great condition and still had the original Cobra grips on them. I re-gripped the clubs and played with them for 3yrs. I started noticing a broad dispersion but consistent distance. It felt like the regular flex shaft was flexing a lot giving me the broad dispersion. I started researching new clubs and found the manufacturers were strengthening the angle of the club face for more distance. I was looking for distance I wanted to narrow the dispersion. A friend of mine that I play with occasionally build clubs and gives lessons after talking with him and hitting a bucket of balls while watched I decided that I would re-shaft the clubs. I loved the feel and it was way cheaper than replacing my clubs. I have every club 1-9 irons and all 4 wedges. I went with ProjectX Catalyst in a stiff shaft. They feel great, tightened my dispersion, and even gained some distance. And, by the way, I CAN hit the 1 iron – off the ground or a tee????

  8. So the question is what makes a 7 iron a 7 iron (or a 4 a 4 or a PW a PW etc.)?
    The loft?
    The length?
    The lie?

    Is the real message behind these string clubs that Bryson is right and we should be playing standard lengths?


  9. Rather than using terms like game improvement or using handicap to pigeon hole people, the golfing world should use club head speed as a guide to what club types people should look at. You can have a 3 handicap who has a 80mph driver speed but is unreal because they have a good short game and putt like a ninja. On the flip you can have 18 handicap golfers with a 115mph driver speed but cant get up and down to save their life.

  10. There's no longer any point in calling clubs by numbered irons (e.g. 7i). Every set is so different, its just a marketing ploy to make you believe you are hitting further, you're not! They should simply be called by the loft degree e.g. a 26 Deg club. The question is not then "how far do you hit your 7i", but its "how far do you hit you 26 Deg iron".
