I stopped watching Mark Crosfield after he was unbelievably rude to Rory for not telling the viewers he had a shot on a hole. Took a dislike to him after that I can't get over.

I watch quite a few of these, and agree they are all ok. As mentioned in another topic I tend to not watch anything regarding the swing as it does more bad than good to me!! However different types of shots to try, equipments, course vlogs are all good. I don’t mind finch, I prefer Shiels other channel which is more like A podcast to the in course stuff. I like golf mates, it can get a bit daft but I don’t mind that. Every so often I’ll watch the Don’t lay up Guys. Danny Maude does some good stuff. Not really tried bad golf, I’ll maybe give it a go

National club golfer with Hannah Holding is good as is golfalot
Cross field is ok actually and I like Shields podcasts.
Mrs B calls Claire Hogle etc “golf porn”
Sophie Walker was on Ricks podcast speaking about that very thing the other week.

I quite like Alex Etchies, he can bd a dick but doesn’t take himself seriously and is often amusing.

I do like the coolest man in golf - Erik Andrea Lang. Whatever form he’s in, be it Skratch Golf or Randon Golf, his vids are interesting to watch.

Occasionally watch James Robinson Golf, he’s likeable, but can be samey.

Have recently watched a few vids with Golfmates and The Average Golfer, both OK but not someone I’d watch frequently.

Went off Crossfield a while back but was actually watching some of his Icelandic vlogs yesterday.

TXG are very good from a technical perspective. My lad and the Uni tutors swear by them for that.

I've found some of the UK channels have gone a bit stale recently (winter, covid etc).
I have been watching some US channels like Good, Good, GM__Golf, Bryson Dechambeau.

PGA Memes have recently been doing house tours with PGA players.

There's one UK channel that I have been enjoying called Not a Perfect Golfer. He is a high handicap golfer that has been improving. It's a very simple, no ego golf video of each of his rounds and quite easy to watch.

Peter Finch. Always been a bit geeky, but last year or so become a caricature of himself. Unwatchable if you ask me.

Alex Evans is great. Someone you’d love to play a round with and then have a pint, or ten, afterwards.

Agreed, watched Peter Finch a couple of times and he was dire - his scoring/rating process on a club test was dreadful. James Robinson is another who’s presenting style is dreadful.

Does some good comparisons and gives a good insight into forgiveness by looking at the poor strikes as well as the good ones...

I quite enjoy James Wiltshires course vlogs and Steve Surry (a lower level tour pro) has added loads to his videos whilst they were in South Africa together.

Used to watch James Robinson but found him a bit of a show off. Always included his Porsche in his videos or his BMW M sport, whereas Finch and Shiels appear much more humble imo.

Average golfer I enjoy occasionally if he's at a decent course but there's a lot of filler to his review videos I find.

Tbh in terms of club reviews I would trust the TXG over any of the others.

Steve Sury has played a load on the Jamega Tour and played at my place for the last few years. Nice guy and a good player but one of those that has recognised he's not got what it takes these days to compete at too much a higher level

Yeah. James Robinson is in the same category. Don’t get me wrong, I understand exactly WHY he does it, and WHY he puts out a new video every day, and have even created another channel for him and his missus. Money money money. Good on him, but not for me!

Interesting thread this as an avid golf YT watcher here is my run down on most mentioned here:-

Dan Hendriksen - Currently my most watched channel, I like the slightly more amateurish production value makes me feel 'closer' to it and you feel like you know Dan, Bernie, Jordan, Lee etc. really well which is enjoyable. However I can see the content getting a bit repetitive it's hard for them in winter to make good fresh content though.

Rick Sheils - Not much to dislike I find Rick no sense, no filler in his vids just gets to the point very well produced/edited and his reach is so impressive because of the snappy content I think. But I can't stand that Guy fella on the podcast, just tries to make it all about himself and I really don't care!

Peter Finch - I have respect for his content but I find his presenting style incredibly cringe and I just can't get over it! He's fine for me when appearing in others videos but I find him so Alan Partridge on his own channel it's now unwatchable for me.

Alex Evans - His casual approach to it I really enjoy and the insight into the tour life with The Bif (Paul Waring) is great, just wish he was able to make more regular videos.

James Wiltshire - Down to earth, real life look at somebody trying to get onto a pro tour, not very regular videos but enjoy watching him play.

Golf Sidekick - Comedy value mixed with actually useful tips put him in a different category from anyone else on this list for me, done so well at making his cult following. I love Thailand and SE Asia so to see him playing courses there is great.

Golf Mates - I really appreciate the hard work Liam puts in and tbh hate to see people slagging him off. Liam is just a normal working guy, not a pro, trying to make the most of it and a living from YT and for some reason I take a bit of offence when people say he's annoying etc. he's just an enthusiastic guy trying to inject some energy into it. I get that the 3 hole vlogs on the same UK course is repetitive but you can't beat the laughs with Barlow, eBay and OMP! He's said in recent videos he's going to level up the content and I honestly think he'll do a great job. Just got to watch in small doses to keep it enjoyable.

James Robinson - Find him quite annoying, it's not his fault just his voice and mannerisms annoy me and he's normally just reviewing the same things others are.

TXG - If I want some real in-depth insight into something I'll go to these guys but it can be very heavy and detailed for regular viewing, also still annoys me how far the leftie chap can hit a 7 iron! haha

The Average Golfer - Only found him recently but I think he has an honest approach and good production value, good mix and variety between equip reviews and course experiences etc. if I was to start my own YT channel I think it would be most like this guy. Particularly enjoying his series on converting a Merc sprinter van into a golf tour bus.

Tubes and Ange - Good clean fun and enjoyable in small doses but the childish humour will get on your tits after a little while! You can't fault Tubes' contacts and some quality guests he's had on though.

Danny Maude - Best UK channel out there for instructional tips etc. in my view

Not YT as much (although they do have a channel) but Chasing Scratch podcast is another one of my favourties.

I agree. Whilst it is very basic I like the no frills nature of his videos. Have found his progress quite inspiring given my golf has/had plenty in common with his

I enjoy watching Golf Mates videos. Quite like that the standard of golf is more attainable and in line with my ability. Also really enjoyed some of his content playing UK courses (absolutely loved the look of Painswick and hope to get up there in a few months)

Have watched quite a few James Robinson videos recently and find them decent. Same applies with the boys linked with him - Chris Dennis and Gary Martin

Caught Tubes and Ange playing the Celtic Manor Ryder Cup course recently and find them ridiculously childish

Not A Perfect Golfer - as mentioned above have enjoyed his basic videos charting his progress and have taken some inspiration from them. Does have a completely different feel to the usual YT golf content which won't be for everyone

Aside from those I usually only watch content of people playing courses close to me that I know (South Wales) or reviewing something I am interested in buying
