  1. Number 6. Make sure the beers hidden in your golfbag match the single one you buy from the cart girl..

    1. I see it as more of a guideline than a rule. Especially since I’ve been stuck behind an elderly fivesome taking 20 minutes per hole.

  2. I would add to that tip about lag putting: if you are putting up hill, it’s better to leave the ball short and give yourself a 3-foot uphill putt for par than running it by and having a downhill comebacker.

  3. I remember playing on my home course in an absolute gale and rain. Was absolutely brilliant. Great fun and a real test on the easiest holes. Was like playing a completely different course. Fantastic and great fun

    1. The guys who pay big money for reservations at golf clubs will play in any weather let me tell you.

  4. Great tips. For us lefties, when desbribing the ball going “left” or “right” is there a more neutral way to phrase things to avoid translation? I know. It’s not *that big of a deal* in the grand scheme, but knowing the ball will move “away” from me rather than “to the left for a righty striker” makes things a lot easier to process. 🙂 I LOVE THIS CHANNEL!

    1. Ball above your feet, you will tend to pull/draw/hook the shot. Ball below your feet, you will tend to push/fade/slice the shot. Aim accordingly. 😉

  5. I love how Rick is always trying to help people improve scores. He’s helped me go from shooting 97ish to 90 even. I haven’t been playing golf that long but it’s nice seeing new ways to improve my game and try to get better. I’ve always wanted to go professional while playing the sport that I love. I know that won’t happen, but it’s nice to drop shots and play better. Next goal is to save up to get away from my Nike driver. It’s the tour edition so it’s kinda hard for me to use. Slice almost every time. Been watching Rick for 5 years now trying to fix it

    1. Same for me. I picked up golf in August ’22 and my first round I shot 136. My last round in January ’23 was 94 and that’s due in large part to these videos.

  6. Helpful video as usual. Thanks, Rick. The 3-foot putting rule is the distance from the hole or radius, not the diameter however.

  7. Rick your videos are a great reminder for even us seasoned golfers that we need to go back to basics when it comes to practice and just playing.

  8. Great tip from Rick – don’t be too hard on yourself. I used to get annoyed for days after if I’d had a bad round but now I just take a fatalistic approach to golf and enjoy myself. Let’s face it, it beats work.

  9. Rick from watching your videos I’ve went from shooting in the 90s and a highest of 97 and struggling to break 90, to shooting 81 two weeks in a row. Thank you so much for making these videos and helping us regular golfers

  10. Great tips. I would add taking lessons. I learned two things from my last lesson – the importance of lag in my swing – wan’t even aware of that until I was videotaped, and, as you mentioned, the importance of lag in my putts – I am now two putting much more consistently and even making some outside of 10 feet, but I am now less focused on draining 30 footers and just making a good, solid putt.

  11. As a newly minted golfer, I am a huge fan of your content Rick.

    My mate (15 years deep into golf) put me onto you when I said I was interested in joining my local club, I have since been glued to your content as part of my journey towards my first handicap, making sure I have lots of fun along the way.

    You’re a credit to the sport and I’m sure I’m one of many who is encouraged by your continued efforts.

    Keep up the good work mate 👏

  12. Literally just ordered a starter golf set for me and my fiancée yesterday. This will be really helpful for newbies like us! Can’t wait to get started

  13. So true…I’m great when I play a round in a simulator where the weather is nice but what a huge transition to the golf course! Also, I think I’m probably still 4/10 from that 3 foot range as well!😂

  14. Thanks Rick . Always look forward to your videos. I’m starting an 18 hole golf league in May for the first time . I was told it’s not a super serious league and it’s all about enjoying the game . Do you have any advice or insight in league play ? It would be greatly appreciated . Thanks

  15. Really have to agree with the playing of different courses. I play fairly well round my own course but you get to a point where you hardly have to think about your next club because you play the same way each time. As soon as I go and play a few different courses and face different hazards, lengths, wind directions, I come back to my own course feeling I’m now better equipped as a golfer as I now have more shots in my arsenal.

  16. Thank you Rick Shiels, your content, information, advise, perspective, and passion for this silly game is apparent. It’s so enjoyable to come on to YouTube and watch your videos. I’m in Alaska our golf courses are under feet of snow, we are eagerly awaiting for spring and to be able to get our 5 months of playing in this summer. So being able to enjoy your content in the off season is very nice. I’m starting to build up excitement and anticipation. I’m 52 years old and just played my first summer of golf last summer, I started out shooting around 120 on a par 72 coarse. My goal was to break 100, I I did a couple months in, my best score was a 93, this year I want to break 90, and a personal best of 85 would be great. I’m shooting old second hand clubs, if I can start shootings in the 80’s I may treat myself to a fitting and get proper clubs. Thank you again and God bless

  17. The double bogey finish on each hole is much easier after perfecting lag putts. Thanks, Rick!

  18. Well done, Sir! Golf is a thinking man’s game and learning how to think about what you are doing is as imprtant as the doing of it. This video is a sure example of that idea.
