What do you think of Mark Crossfield? - Page 8

post #127 of 134

We watch his videos all the time, there are others on the web that are okay, but Mark is consistent and seems to cover a lot.

Plus when he is playing with his mates they all seem to have a good time. The more the kids have a person like this the better it will be for golf and the industry. I can tell you my son have seem everyone of them.

For comedic club reviews, check out Slinging Birdies Channel which includes trying out Miura's "Like Butter" reputation by hitting a buttered iron off a short stack of waffles as a tee.

I don't mind his videos, I like that he compares all types of clubs, irons in the same category and even some that are slightly out of the game type category but will tell you what the differences are and how they might stack up against each other if that is what you are comparing. All in all I like his videos and find them very informing. sometimes it seems that he isn't negative enough on some reviews but I guess when you play at a low level cap or scratch golfer you can make most clubs do what you need them to do.

I enjoy all of Mark's presentations be they club evaluations or swing improvement.  I just wish I could do the things he advises to correct my slice.

I adore Mark Crossfield. I love the way he teaches, I love the way he explains things, and I love the way he gives me new ways of looking at my golf game. Even though not all (or even most) of what he says in swing videos applies to me, it gives me new tools for my own mental toolbag for analyzing my own swing in the future. I adore his course videos with Rory and Buzza. I think his equipment reviews are very honest and thoughtful, especially since he approaches so much of the claims manufacturers make skeptically. I'm on his channels every day. Love it.

 

For Christmas, I got surprised with these personalized golf balls referencing the fact that I crib his catchphrase in day to day life. Complete waste of money, but God, did I have a good laugh.

I was wondering why with a 13 handicap you have ping 15 driver with a steel X shaft, me thinks you should go and a golf fitting session with a PGA pro.

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. 

I like Rick Shiels a lot, and I've been getting more and more into his videos because he's been doing at ton of interesting reviews. I just think he's a little scatterminded sometimes and gets things wrong because of that (like messing up what the effect of the gravity core was supposed to be in the Callaway Big Bertha). I don't think his instruction is quite as analytical or in-depth as Mark's, but he's a lot of fun to watch, especially when he's carrying drivers over 300 yards. Great googily moogily. 

 

The Meandmygolf guys are hard for me to take in big doses. Just a little too dry for my tastes. But very solid and helpful instruction. Their video on hitting spinny chips was very useful to me.

Same here. I'll watch meandmygolf vids if they have specific golf instruction stuff I'm interested in, but there's just not much personality on camera to make me come back for more. Parfield's stuff I watch mostly for entertainment value.
