What do you think of Mark Crossfield? - Page 4

post #55 of 115

He actually moved to JPX improvement irons to get more distance and make his game easier. He will also tell you why irons are going further now - jacked up lofts and longer shafts.

 

He has also said many times that whatever club you use it is about having the ball hit the middle of the face and have a straight clubpath at impact. The guy gives out tips and advice for free, why knock him. It is only an opinion he gives and he advises you to try out stuff and get your own opinion on it.

 

Any plain easy to understand instruction is ok in my book.

love his on course playing videos, especially when he's playing with Gorilla James, fun stuff. Makes ya think he'd be a hoot to play a round with.

I mainly watch him because he does more club reviews than anyone else I've found on youtube. I've found other channels but they only seem to review on average about one club a month whereas Mark Crossfield at least seems to bring out some sort of club review every few days.

 

Can anyone suggest youtube channels for pros doing frequent club reviews that they think are better?

 

Just to add, I'm not interested in reviews that simply regurgitate the companies product description (as lots seem to do).

cmartingolf on you tube, that's chuck martin.

I just watched a few of crossfields videos!
I kinda like him! I think his camera angles aren't the most helpful! But he's just given me a couple of things to think about... Like I need more things to think about!!

Yes, he is somewhat likable.

Out of all the pro's that use Youtube and the like I find he has the broadest range of videos.

He does equipment reviews, mechanics, course strategy, lesson samples etc..

I'm a big fan of Jeff Ritter who has a growing channel list. Its great though to have free info like this. I learn just as much from the sample lessons as I do from the instructional segment.

Its all good

I started out watching him for club reviews. I love all the data he provides. And I say a thing on the golf channel about Phil's swing and they said he has swing traits of a 36 handicap

I like him. His videos are definitely helpful and I watch them all the time.

What 36 handicap can strike a ball as well as he can? I wonder as to what aspects they are referring?

Seriously. He may be a little unorthodox at times but not a lot 36 cappers out there are winning majors. In fact, last time I checked it was zero.

They say he gets away with it because he's so good. It's like something about how most amateurs slice it or something.

I think his miss is big push to the left (as a lefty) but I could be wrong. Seems that whenever I see him in trouble it's on the left side but I don't watch as much golf as others on this forum so I may have that wrong. If I'm right about the push then I would suspect that any curve issue he has would more likely be hooks. Just spitballing here because I really don't know for sure what his misses are.

I think his downswing is like extremely steep or something so he can't turn aggressively. And the other day he was missing on both sides so I don't know.

Gotten off topic here about Phil's swing. I do like Mark Crossfield's swing. He gets his hands very high.

Makes more sense, thanks for straightening that out.

I just watched him and gorilla playing against MeAndMyGolf last night. Fun to watch the rivalry between the two channels.

 

Both of the groups were pretty amazing, and they seemed to be having fun (at least Mark and Gorilla appeared to be). I think the MeAndMyGolf team were surprised at Mark and Gorilla's actual playing skill.

I think most of his vid's are good, he has a good way of explaining things, imho.
