Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel! This YouTube channel is designed to help you play better golf, also to help you enjoy your golf more!

I specialise in golf equipment reviews, golf instruction & I play against some of the best golfers in the world!

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!

  1. I just hit this driver today on trackman and it was pretty amazing. I plan on trying it out again just to confirm but it was the best I have ever hit a driver. But man, $599 is tough to part with

  2. Just bought this after a fitting. I've noticed more consistency over my Stealth and gained 15yds. Dispersion is much tighter. Same shaft and loft spec.

  3. Honestly, I don’t think even care about forgiveness and distance anymore. I literally break driver heads every 3 months. Sure I get warranty but they are only good for a few months, then the face caves in or the crown explodes. I don’t smash my clubs off the ground and always use a head cover. It’s just annoying, nothing durable for fast swing speeds

  4. Glad I bought the Ping G 425 Max. I liked your review on that one better Rick. You had better results and gushed about how straight it was. Love your reviews. Thanks.

  5. Wait … I’ve just watched this video.
    The g430 vid from last year
    The g425 Max vid from the year before.

    It seems like the g425 max is still right up there.

    You can grab a good second hand one for over 80% less than either of the 430s.

    Let’s go buy g425s fellas!

  6. The longest and most forgiving for me was the g30 the sound and feel was amazing I've been chasing that in all their new drivers. I miss the all titanium driver. Talormade charging 700 hundred for a driver is disgusting ????

  7. almost impossible to test. unless you have some sort of robot hitting it low on face, toe, heel etc and then comparing with identical strikes on other drivers, how can anyone claim that one driver is more forgiving than another? £600 quid! blimey. It'd have to be clearly and obviously a LOT better than my current setup to even think about putting it in the bag.

  8. Tensei orange x flex is a little too stixx for your swing speed Rick. you should be fit into that same shaft in stiff not x flex. I bet that would make up a bit of distance.

  9. If this tops the already magnificent forgiveness of the g425, and sounds better… Than it's my dream driver! Alas, signing for this driver, would also mean signing divorce papers, so I have to win one ????

  10. @rick Shiels Golf what's the difference between the moi of the previous generations? G430max, g425 max, and g410? Is it worth upgrading if you have a g410 or g425?

  11. Honestly when the term most forgiving driver is used . We need to see high handicap players trying these out . When you have a high quality swing you can make any club look good we need to see someone that slices like crazy putting these to the test to get honest answers . Just my opinion it’s hard to take a low handicap golfers word .

  12. Het Rick, need a player with 24+ handicap to show the proper results, cuz we need to see from inconsistence hitting and low swing speeds to see the proper results.
