Saw him on a recent Golfholics video and have since then checked out his channel.  He's a Canadian tour/ mini tour player and his channel focuses on the behind the scenes life as a professional golfer.  Various vlogs have included the costs each week, training, sessions with his swing coach, etc.  It's a really different viewpoint and addresses subjects that I'm curious about.  It's a pretty young channel but so far it's been pretty interesting.  Has anyone else seen his videos?

Watching a video now - thanks for the heads up ... I really like his approach and the information he passes on. I think I'll be watching the muppets less and spending more time on his channel. He never seemed to make it on tour, but I'm pretty sure he'll have lots of info that'll make a difference in my game.

If one is interested in his journey - in this video he goes through his journey to date: https://www.youtube....h?v=dT3mAr2VmRo

It is a good channel. Production quality is high and Andrew is very good on camera. Frankly, his on camera abilities are significantly better than other golf YouTubers that have been doing videos much, much longer. Cough, Rick Shiels, cough.

Beyond the trials of being a mini-tour/fringe PGA Tour Canada player, he is extremely open about his mental health issues. He has a story to tell.

I'm interested to see where his channel can go. That said, he doesn't do club reviews or instruction, so I think there's a limit to how big the channel can get. Would not be shocked if he spins this off into a role with an OEM or another industry entity if he decides to stop pursuing professional golf.

Seems like a nice guy. Interesting channel. I wonder how long he will give mini tours a try? He's 33-34 y/o so doubtful he ever makes it to the PGA tour. He can probably survive for a while through golf and his side jobs, but at some point you have to let reality sink in and focus on making enough money to build a retirement nestegg.

Obviously biased but Andrew is great guy who is a very good golfer and is good in front of the camera.   He’s genuine and open, willing to put himself out there in ways most never would

Or looking for subscribers and a paycheck.

Why can't it be "And" instead of "Or"?  And if it can't be, then why is looking for a paycheck bad?

He does public speaking engagements and his story has been featured by Vice Sports and other new media outlets long before his YouTube channel.  

Do you know how YouTube works as far as revenue goes?   There is very little money in it for anyone in the golf business.  Nobody in golf is earning a comfortable living off YouTube ad revenue.

Obviously he's not good enough at this profession to make a living. Time to move on.

Maybe true, but no harm in trying. At the end of the day we only get one shot in life, why not give it our all for something we want.

Fan of the channel as well been watching it for a while and as others said the production is good for someone new into it.

Been watching his channel for a while, he seems like a good guy  who enjoys making videos and has an interesting perspective. Happy to see him get mentioned here, hopefully he will pick up some more viewers.

Yes I like to watch him. I think it's cool because you get to see how a "real" guy lives day to day trying to make it as a pro, how it's not all glitter and glam, etc.

Liked this channel. I don't think he's quite good enough to make the jump to the big leagues. However, he's a great speaker so maybe he can do something in golf media or broadcast. Also, he mentioned before that he worked as a fitter for Taylormade so he can always go back to that as well.

Been following his vids for a while, would love to see more practice round Vlogs to see how a guy like him prepares for a tournament. Don't know if he's quite good enough to make it but atleast he adds something to youtube golf that others don't/can't.

I also found him after the Golfholics video and agree I really like him and his channel.  He's talented as a new Youtuber, and I bet will get even better very quickly.

Ha I can't believe I just stumbled on this thread. I played college golf with AJ and we still try to play some cash scrambles together in the fall if he's back in Canada. He's a good dude and I'm happy to see him and the channel doing well.

Looks like he's struggling in Q-School this week. Wasn't expecting him to go out and win it, but would've really liked to see him keep it around even these past two rounds and give himself a chance at some status going into the final rounds.
