I play THE OPEN golf course - Royal Portrush

  • Published on Jul 17, 2019
  • In this video Rick Shiels PGA golf professional tees it up at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland.
    Royal Portrush is the host venue for this years (2019) Open Championship and Rick heads out to play the famous course as part of The Open Links Invitational.
    Rick plays the exact same links that Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and the rest of the PGA Tour and European Tour stars will play this week for the 148th Open Championship. Who will win the 4th and final major of the season and take home the claret jug?

    Being a GreensKeeper when I was younger has made it hard for me to enjoy watching these guys when I keep seeing sod flying hit after hit.. In thinking how long it'll take to repair itself! 🤔💭🤦‍♂️😉😂

    What a fantastic event for all involved. Great for fans, golfers and the country as a whole.
    Sorry about the weather on final day, it emptied out of the skies as usual. 4 seasons in one hour!!!
    P.s my wife and I got the chance to stand on the 6th with no-one else and every player was so friendly and talked away.

    Hi Rick, great video as always. Could you do a video on shot shaping? Such as low stingers, high flight, fades and draws. It would be great to have more in the arsenal out on the course when things don’t always go to plan or the weather is against me. I have gone through your videos but can’t find one, I may be mistaken. Thanks in advance 👍 Edit - You’ve done one for wedges, which has been a great help, if you could go into irons etc explaining what situations are good for certain shots, as if I’m hindered by trees etc, I just tend to play out sideways which breaks my heart 😂

    Hi Rick, love your channel 👍
    Could you some blind 2019 iron testing by covering the back of the club with some tape so you don’t know the brand/model. A pin challenge maybe?

    You should do a test on chapstick on a driver face! Heard it’s supposed to reduce the amount of spin the balls has.

      Used to caddie here as a kid - when caddies were simply bag carriers (50/60p a round - in the early 70s). Wonderful golf course.
