Playing golf with a 1 iron (16°) for EVERY shot!

  • Playing golf with a 1 iron (16°) for EVERY shot!

    In this video PGA Pro Rick Shiels challenges PGA PRO Matt Fryer to a match at Townley Golf Club using ONLY a Titleist U500 one iron that has just 16° of loft. The one iron is regarded as the HARDEST golf club in the world to use. Players struggle hitting one irons due the fact they have very little loft. If you slice or hook your driver, shank or top your irons or simply duff your golf shots then a one iron would be near impossible to use.

    Even the best players in the world like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day do not use one irons in their whats in the bags.

    See what Rick Shiels can shoot using just a 1 iron, Rick will have to use a one iron to chip with, putt with and even hit challenging bunker shots with. Rick Shiels could really find some awful situations to use the one iron. Rick Shiels and Matt Fryer also use the one iron to play a 909 yard par 8 hole they made up.

    Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This RUclip channel is designed to help you play better golf, also to help you enjoy your golf more!

    I specialise in golf club reviews, golf club unboxing, golf club news, golf club head to heads, and all about golf clubs.

    I also want to make you play better golf by providing coaching video on all topics about golf, how to fix your slice, fix your hook, help you drive the golf ball longer, hit your irons more pure, hit your irons closer to the hole and help you draw and fade your golf shots.
    I will also help you lower your score by chipping better by stopping you duff and thin chips, pitch the ball closer and also create backspin. Also I will provide you help to putt better and hole more putts!

    On this channel I also make fun and entertaining golf content based on crazy and sometimes “gimmicky” golf clubs. I like to cut through the marketing hype about products and I like to give you the honest truth about golf equipment.

                                                You should try a round of golf with a hybrid only. Play 9 or 18 holes on a full-length course using a hybrid lofted between 18° and 25° for every stroke. If you can make par or at least break bogey, that'd be amazing.

                                                        I always thought 2 was the lowest iron and 1 was just a driver a driver. Today I learned

                                                          1 irons were common in the bags of pros and skilled amateurs in the past. The higher spin of older golf balls favoured lower lofted clubs, and the low, penetrating ball flight of a 1 iron made it a good club for long Par 3s or driving into the wind. Today's low spin balls favour higher lofted clubs, hence why driver loft has increased from 7° to 10° or more and the 1 iron is exceptionally rare.
