What do you think of Mark Crossfield? - Page 7

post #109 of 129

I like Mark. I subscribe to his youtube channel and I think that his relaxed, fun approach to golf is refreshing. Whenever he films himself and his buddies playing a round, he always seems to be having a good time whether he`s playing poorly or not. I know that it`s much easier to enjoy life when all you do is play golf for a living but still, his approach is refreshing none-the-less.

Stuck in my study watching Mark Crossfield videos with my son. We are also watching the 5SK videos and MeandMyGolf videos.

 

He has a play league this afternoon, but I am not going to play. Probably just sip on some Yerba Mate at the outdoor bar watching more of the same on my ipad.

MeandmyGolf is alright. Mark is much better IMO.

Yup, he "beat" them in a series of challenges.

 

He's definitely got a good sense of humor, and lots of equipment and scratch golfer friends to boot.

MeandmyGolf is okay, but what separates Mark Crossfield from them is the club reviews. Meandmygolf is mostly geared towards lessons and drills because it just seems they're either devoted or sponsored by TMAG.

 

I also watch Rick Shiels, who is similar to Crossfield in that he does give tips, advice, and club reviews. Some of his reviews of new clubs comes out days before Mark Crossfield gets to it. When he gives swing advice to selected golfers, he does show a before and after to show some improvements after one session.

Before and after is cool.

I think I'd like to see Mark do a few videos with a student and do before and after a lesson to see differences.

I've seen more of this mark crossfield recently, I think he's alright! Seems very knowledgable on instructions, and unbiased on reviews! Even his catchphrase is growing on me! I'd have a lesson with him if he was near me, or a round, but I bet he's annoying down the pub!

I subscribe to marks vids, I am looking for a new set of irons at the moment and I like the vs vids he does on similar clubs down to 2 to 3 sets now to hit, not a big numbers person but would love to have gc 2 hmt in my house, that he uses.

Hi I enjoy watching him and his mates out on the course.

 

Good old fashioned fun.

 

cheers

Agreed. Getting out with the lads is something different to watch from the grindy review vids. He is also an ambassador for getting people with a disability into golf which I also admire him for, an all round good guy.

Mark Crossfield has a "million" YouTube videos and an app.  No way anyone could do use all the "fixes"; however, his teaching seem to be excellent.  If there are a few "tips" to straighten out swing flaws, then he is doing a great job.  Personally, I could one video about stopping over the top with concentrating on the movement of the handle really improve my ball striking...with all clubs.  My advice: If you find one or two videos really hit home, keep watching them and working on the movements/swing thoughts.  Good luck.

I watch his instruction from time to time. He does have some good ideas that can help the golfer who wants to play to lower scores. I have recommended his videos to some friends. No weird teaching stuff going on with him.

I have to say he's grown on me!
I like his way of explaining things, I also like his reviews as he seems very unbiased,
I also like his swing!
To be critical, his glasses are a bit large, I've never seen his hair, and I'm sure he sleeps in that cap, maybe his head is "stuck in"

I like his club reviews.  Seems like no BS.  I have not watched tutorials.

His course vlogs make me feel better about my game. Most of those guys are "professionals" and have lost balls a lot.

I believe Mark was a pretty good Amateur Player. . A lot of the other guys are just pretty good amateur players (low teen to single digit). I wouldn't label any of them "Professionals".

They are teaching professionals, which is why I used "" Mark seems to be the best player of them by far.

Actually Kevin Harper, who has played on the EuroProTour (Europe's top developmental tour) and played in the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie, is probably the best player of them. James Pickard was a +2.3 before turning pro in 2010.  When an amateur plays with them, they usually give a handicap.
