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.

Great video. Thanks!!!

Duffer Dave says:

Headcover review, I have to love it. It's SOOO important to me that the head cover matches my bag, damn the performance I want to look good rolling up to the clubhouse lol. Seriously I love my Ping 425, I'll look at the 430 once it's aged out a bit ( and the price drops some) thanks for the review, I alway apprciate your comments, Rick.

doug fields says:

The G430 is NOT a good looking club. If you hot melt the G425 the sound changes/gets better and I think it would be what you wanted it to be. i know it made mine stay in my bag when it was on the way out just because of sound.

Arkansauce76 says:

I've bought, traded and owned about every driver on the market over the years…and I always find ping drivers in my bag. They've been the best on the market for a long time in my opinion

Jack Dorris says:

I have the old Ping G25 and if you watch Rick Shiels review it, the figures are very similar to the above. The carry of the Ping G25 was 279yds i.e actually 2 yds further than the newer models !!

James Arseneau says:

I throw out head covers when I buy a new club. What is their purpose? Keep club heads warm? Silly stuff

Cryptonomics says:

turn ya sound up- get new mics.. or stop mumblin when you talk.

Julian Smiles says:

Ping G430 gives you lots of confidence and you gain confidence your swing speed and distance goes up

A Wiganer says:

🤣 £500 for a golf club? My first 5 cars didn’t cost that.

[H.9]Clan4all says:

Even the video is from 5 months ago, I just want to state, that this „Weapon“ changed a lot in my Golf-Game. I finally decided to give up on my Taylormade SIM MAX, beeing soo frustrated from slicing, and lack of accuracy.
For me the T-Shot at every hole is so crucial in respect to the next shots, due to confidence.
Using the g430 Max with a stiff shaft (clubheadspeed at an average of 96) got me rid of 98% of my Slices. Distance is phenomenal for my doings( min. 246 yrds max. 300 yrds).
Last 6 rounds I dropped HCP from 34,6 to around 27, while getting a big gain in enjoying Golf again!

Andrew says:

Absolutely agree about the 430Max. On course it looks like you're hitting a great shot, only to find that it's fallen short of normal landmarks, bunkers and regular approach positions on my home course. It def spins too much and for fast swingers its likely to not be a great fit for them.

AJ says:

Agreed on colors, loved the simple theme of the G425.

Sticking with my G425 Max 😊

Shawn Highfill says:

Could you explain loft angle? If you get a club that isn’t adjustable, what do you choose? 9 , 10.5, higher?? I don’t love my current driver, way to inconsistent. Which I know is me, but still.

Joshua K says:

Stealth2 vs LS g430 vs g425 max? 15 plus yard distance gain on stealth2?

Mmmmm says:

I still have the ping g5

JP412ITALIA says:

Paradym still king


Hi Rick for me everything about this driver is OK EXCEPT for me those ridges on top, and shaft is too flexible near head . Unlike you I have a 80 mph swing so 200 yds they say is all I should hit why.

Sardar Ahmed says:

Driver is a very personal choice . There is no such thing as " the best driver".

tmajik86 says:

just an fyi, the color scheme is a nod to the rapture driver.

Will Butterton says:

Youre getting weaker old man Ricky 😂. Distance slowly dropping each year!

Shane Brown says:

I've used the G425 max for the past 2 years and wasn't planning on upgrading but I won a G430 max so it's nice to see similar numbers with improved sound. That'll do me for free. Wouldn't have bought it though.
