Mark Crossfield for me, but prefer the course vlogs with Coach Lockey, Rory, et al to the reviews & instruction. I know some find him annoying, but I like his quirkiness.

Can't stand Crossfield. Maybe if I put his videos on mute and read subtitles, it'd be okay. Just hate his whiney/nasally voice.

But there are lots of folks I like from Shaun Webb, Tyler Ferrell, Dan Carraher, Monte, . . .      Instagram or youtube.

Shiels for reviews, golfholics for vlogs. Used to like crossfield when he was still playing with a cast of characters but nowadays it's always the same people and his attitude where he starts every video passive-aggresively telling people how they're wrong about subject X is kind of off-putting.

I don't know that he is a commentator but I like a lot of Monte's YouTube lessons.  Although I don't always agree with him 100% I think what he has to say is very sound.

Dan Whittaker is great as well. I've worked with him once.

Monte you're a good communicator.

I like Gankas teaching methods but he talks way too fast.

Anything CROSSFIELD & MONTE.

Makes me chuckle how some don't understand MC's humour and sarcasm.

Monte's teaching video are pure gold.


I used to like Rick S but am not bothered one way or the other now.

There's not many i don't like to be fair, i don't see anyone being horrific. I do find that you need to be at a certain place in your game to understand a few of them though, Crossfield and Monte videos i watched 3 years ago i struggled to understand their teachings on certain things and how it seemed to work against what i was trying, but roll on 3 years and it makes sense to me now, an example being the whole lag thing and the Crossfield video from last week, made total sense to me last week, if i watched that 2 years ago i'd be wondering why they were discounting the 'sergio' lag and holding on to angles for dear life!

If i had to pick a favourite though, Martin Chuck is the one i like, as he's a similar build and has a great enthusiasm for the game and teaching, which comes across in the videos for me.

As for clubs, pick anyone, i honestly don't think any company makes bad clubs, it's just finding the correct fit, and none of them can do that.

Monte is always tops for me. It's crazy how I'll watch a few of his videos and think, "That didn't help me much," or maybe, "I didn't get that." Then I'll work on my game, discover something I didn't previously know, then re-watch the video and say, "That's it!!" I also just discovered why he doesn't post a ton of videos on his YouTube channel: he is very active on Instagram and posts videos there every day.

I've been following Harry Flower Golf lately. He is buddies with Gorilla James (James Wiltshire is his YouTube handle), who you may recognize from many of Crossfield's older videos. They both got away from YouTube for a while, but they're back now and putting out daily Vlogs. Nothing in the way of instruction, but they're fun to watch.

Other than that, here are a few others I watch, some of which haven't been mentioned:

Mark Crossfield (the Original YouTube golf coach!)
Steve Buzza
Andrew Rice
Allistair Davies
Bobby Lopez
The Art of Simple Golf

I enjoy Wayne DeFrancesco's analysis of the different tour players.  I especially enjoyed his analysis of Dustin Johnson's swing.

I believe he coaches Kevin Streelman.

Unpopular opinion but I like BeBetterGolf. I think he gets the editing just right. I watch pretty much every video except the Tony Luzcak and advertisements for their golf schools. What annoyed about Tony was when he said if you are a lefty swinging right handed, you can't be good at golf.

I'm not much of a fan of the over edited videos from the likes of golfholics.
Mark, Monte and GG all have created great content
The AMG gears videos are pretty cool and very informative, would love to see more content from them.

Tyler Ferrell of Golfsmart Academy amd the guys from Athletic Motion.  Both of those provide analytical explanations.

For me, I personally find all the various vlogs (particularly the Golfholics, Peter Finch, Shiels and Crossfield) to be the most worthless content on the internet.

I am thankful and appreciate the efforts of the individuals sharing their information on youtube.  I prefer:

swing concepts: Monte, Malaska
drills: Robin Symes (I like his lessons with players as well)
target focus: Clement
clubfitting and equipment knowledge: Wishon
Course vlogs: anyone showing places I would like to play, and less talk is better.  
Club reviews: no one: I prefer clubs in hand and testing with a quality fitter.  I prefer a review to include my swing and compare my fitted equipment.

It's so funny how varied the opinions are, some people couldn't care less about watching club reviews while others thing vlogs are just a waste.

For teaching, hands down it's Monte.  Any of you freeloaders, go buy his videos now and you'll thank me later.  Just one of his swing tips had my driver on point all day about a week ago.  

For just general golf vlogs, golfholics and Andrew Jenson.  I love skillfully edited videos, high quality 4K HD stuff and good music.  They just help scratch my golf itch when it's a miserable week in February, like it is right now.

Anybody that hates vlogs, I'd urge you to check out golfholics most recent two videos at Big Horn.  It's phenomenal.

That's awesome, my comment was a little tongue in cheek.  I've watched countless instructional free videos, but his videos on the website are just so good.  I watched the bunkers videos and can't wait to try it out on the course.

Crossfield on everything, he is just hilarious.

Peter Finch has some very good training tips and drills as well as Chris Ryan and Alistair Davies.

Shiels reviews aren`t doing it for me lately, prefer Alex Etches (unfortunately he doesn`t do a lot).

Malaska has some interesting stuff that make you think.

Monte is the voice of reason in golf instruction and I can really see him get along well with Crossfield, they share quite similar ideas about the golf swing IMO.

George Gankas is great in golf instruction and REALLY good at coaching the game.

I like Newton and Shiels for reviews.

Crossfield is funny. I like his channel

And +10 for Martin Chuck. Went to Tour Striker Academy, watch his material online. Great teacher, positive, encouraging, just a lot of fun be around.

The Golfholic cinematics done by Marko were actually pretty good.  And Marko seems pretty cool.  But I mainly can't watch them because of the douchey short guy Mike.  And then they added his even more douchey brother.  No thanks.
