10 Of The Best Golf YouTube Channels You Can Watch Right Now

A few weeks ago now, I went through some of the best golf blogs online and what makes them so good. There’s not much I love more than catching up on great golf content, and there are some truly fantastic blogs out there to get your daily fix. But sometimes it’s nice to mix it up, and it’s hard to beat a good YouTube channel for sheer entertainment and enjoyment.

There are millions of videos on YouTube – so many, in fact, that it can often be intimidating to dive in before you even find your first golf channel. But that’s where I come in: I’ve done the research for you and can now offer up some of my favourite channels. Some of these I’ve watched for a while, and some are newer finds, but all offer something unique.

Whether you’re looking for golf tips to improve your game, or just hilarious videos to sit back and enjoy, these are – in my humble opinion – the best of the best. Did I miss any big ones? Let me know in the comments. I’m always on the lookout for more golf videos to watch!

You can’t get much better than this to start off with. I’ve included quite a funny video above of the guys playing golf while still wearing their bags – and as you might guess, hilarity ensues. They don’t just post these fun videos, though: you can turn to them for first-rate advice on your game. The instructional videos are incredibly useful – I can’t stress that enough. Just watch a few of them, and you’ll see what I mean. And unlike a lot of YouTube channels these days where videos are churned out and become boring, you can tell these guys really and truly enjoy what they’re doing, which makes a massive difference.

Steve Buzza offers up some great tips to improve your wedge play in the video above, and really that’s what you can expect from all his videos: well reasoned, well spoken tips and strategies to hone your craft. His videos are well made and professional, and he offers great advice. He also has video blogs and goes through games, which are always entertaining to watch.

One of my favourite things about Shawn Clement’s videos is that he admits that golf can be – and indeed should be – an intuitive, natural sport. A lot of the time it feels like this alien concept where you have to be told how to play, how to progress, how to get better, but a lot of it is in your hands. That being said, his instructional videos are fantastic, and well worth checking out. He explains concepts in easy to understand ways, and breaks down myths about the sport.

Now THIS is a great video channel. I’m a big fan of Ben Hogan, and this channel was created by Christo Garcia, a man who completely redefined his swing using Hogan’s lessons. The change in his play helped him go from not being able to break 80 to being able to break par. If you’re looking for ways to improve your game, you can’t get much better than the time-tested methods taught by one of the greatest players of all time, and brought to you by a golfer today who has seen the positive changes in his game firsthand.

Mark Crossfield is a PGA golf coach in Exeter, and his videos excel at bringing you a detailed look at new golf equipment – from drivers, like in the video above, to irons, golf bags, and other gadgets. They’re professional and slick, and very easy to watch. I especially like the way he documents some of the games he plays. The videos provide a real insight into how some top courses work and make you want to grab your clubs and get out there yourself!

The great thing about the videos over at My Golf Tutor is that they’re more interactive than a lot of golf videos you find online. If you’ve got a problem with your game that you want to iron out, you can get in touch and My Golf Tutor makes videos around questions like yours. The videos are approachable and entertaining, because they’re created by weekend golfers – they’re not condescending in any way. I’d definitely recommend checking them out.

While Chris Ryan does put up some brilliant instructional videos, my favourite aspect of his channel are the vlogs – which is why I featured one above. They’re entertaining, because you get to see some great chat as he and the other players go round the course, but they’re informative too. He discusses his shots before he makes them, so you get an insight into some great golfing strategy, and they’re shot in a very easy to watch way. Perfect videos to wake up to on the weekend before you go out and hit the course yourself.

If you want funny videos with a bit of golf banter, look no further than Brandon and Matt’s channel. From “How not to play golf” to funny golf impressions, golf vlogs on various courses around the UK, and great roundups of golf content, these guys have got a bit of a different slant on the standard YouTube golf channel, and it really works. They also feature some of my favourite trick shot compilations on YouTube, so they’re well worth checking out.

This is quite a unique video channel in that it doesn’t just show great golf play or the usual “How To” videos. It isn’t really just about improving your game at all. It follows a Californian golfer on a quest to be better himself, documenting the highs and lows of his golf through a great series of vlogs. You can learn from what works well, and commiserate alongside him when things don’t go so well, and it really feels a lot more personal than a lot of other videos: he talks to you, and your comments can help him – and in turn, help others.

I only found Pure Swing TV recently, but I’m glad I did. It has a huge amount of subscribers, a bucket load of videos, and is dedicated to helping you improve as a golfer. One of the most striking videos I’ve found so far is the one I featured above, about how we can learn how to improve our golf swing by watching a four-year-old boy with one arm. Quite a jarring statement, isn’t it? But watch the video and you’ll see what I mean. What a wonderful kid, and a great example of the kind of content you’ll find on Pure Swing TV.

  1. Good player is the one who always puts constant efforts to correct his game. When we are not in proper swing sequence it can impact the positioning through golf swing. When we start the down swing we want to make sure it is initiated by the lower body. If not it can lead to too much of our lower body weight being too much on our back foot at impact. If our weight is too far back through impact then our hands and arms will rotate too much through the ball and create a closed cub face (pull). One way to help with the proper swing sequence it to find a lower body down swing trigger. This means that when you get to the top of your backswing you use something on your lower body to start your downswing action. There are different ways to do it
    • Shifting of lower body weight first
    • Pulling front knees towards the target
    • Player often put scorecard in their rear pocket closest to the target
