What are your favorite instructional vids on youtube?

13 posts in this topic

As a novice, I'm always looking for good instructional material but I find a lot of crap where they give you the first half of a lesson then they want you to sign up somewhere else for the rest of the lesson.

Clearly, anything with David Leadbetter is money, as long as you don't mind dry dialogue.  I've improved a LOT by watching his vids and doing many of his drills.  What else is worth watching?  Any good suggestions?

A good channel on youtube to look at is called "Meandmygolf" ... It's these 2 British guys and they do some good instructional videos for both beginners and high handicapers.

TST is a forum-full of instruction -- take a look, it's excellent.

I like 5 Simple Key Videos and Drills

On youtube, Pete Cowan has some good videos on Swinging a Club, and Callaway Sponsored Vids

Occasionally, I will look at a Stan Utley Short Game Vid; Phil M's vids, which are on youtube, has some good ideas.

When I first started, i found a series of videos by Pete Styles. He's not on youtube, but it is a good, solid basic swing that he breaks down into the classical positions (address, takeaway, backswing, transition, etc). I've found that going to see a good teacher beats watching a thousand great videos. Unfortunately when you are a beginner, it is difficult to tell good from bad or even mediocre.

My best lesson was from an old pro and all he said was point back to target on backswing and chest to target on follow through, made it simple, but recently a powerpoint video helped with contact, simply put pick a spot in front of ball and stay down and through swinging through that point, a little to the right for draw little to left for fade

    • The TST Member tournament play thread....
      Playing in a Mid-Am at one of the local courses in my city next weekend. It'll be my first solo tournament round since my freshman year of high school. My goal is basically to not piss myself on the first tee and make some kind of contact with the ball. 
    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      YE Yang,Willett and Hend on -10,in the lead.   Willett went went out in 29,back in 39. Joost needs a good one today. Good rounds from the 2 Spaniards,Campillo and Cabrera Bello to keep them in contention at -6 and -5 respectively. The back 9 must be playing a lot tougher,Jamie Donaldson had 4 birdies and an eagle on the front nine to pull himself back to level par but then had 2 bogies and 2 doubles to miss the cut on the back 9.  
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      Stop saying that! Bingo.  To think that Erik or Mike has it in for you (or anybody else who starts a swing thread on here and gets offended) would mean that you'd have to start under the premise that they have extra time on their hands to spend goofing around and picking on strangers for no reason.  Fact is, if either of them (or, for that matter, about 99.99% of any of the regulars on this site) is posting on a swing thread that is not their own, they are trying to help that person. Remember that throughout the course of the conversation and it should be pretty difficult to draw the conclusions you've drawn. In your case, Tony, you got too defensive and started attacking them.  Despite whether or not you liked what you heard, they were offering (free) advice and they were answering your questions. Take Bill's advice and step back, take a deep breath, and move on.  And stick to one coach to avoid the confusion as well.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      A PGA Tour player's game is optimized to do well on the kinds of courses they play, where conditions are fairly uniform from hole to hole and week to week. Their proximity would not change significantly playing on different greens - it may even suffer slightly if they couldn't adjust well, or if some greens released while others plugged and sucked back. Additionally, as noted, bumpy greens decrease make percentages, so even if they were a foot closer, they might actually take the same or more putts. Same answer as above. Proximity might even suffer due to poorer conditions, failure to adjust, differing conditions hole to hole, etc. I'm not going to guess, and it's off topic anyway. I was just quickly pointing out that scratch doesn't mean they average the course rating. They don't. Only in their 10 best rounds. Of course. But most of a course rating is still the distance. If it's wide open with no rough, no trees, and huge greens, it'll be lower, but not a lot. 67, 66.7, something like that, yeah. But not 61. Not 59. Not 63 very often, either. Studies have shown this to be the case. Players of all ability levels, given time to adjust, putt better on faster, smoother greens than slower (and ostensibly bumpier) greens.
    • My Swing (Jeremie Boop)
      I'm glad you mentioned that, because that reminds me that is how I was hitting those much better impact positions originally earlier this week. I'll combine the feel I'm using for the hand path with the slow start and speeding up of hands on the way down.
