A Conversation with Rick Shiels

VESSEL: What's the best thing about being the prominent golf coach on Youtube?

Rick Shiels: I get a lot of messages on my social media channels from people who have watched my videos and then gone on to improve or even just enjoy the game more - that means so much to me! I really want to help people play better and have as much fun as possible, if I can do that I’m very happy!

VESSEL: Absolutely, making a positive impact is what it's all about. Now, about your studio – why VESSEL bags?

Rick Shiels: This is a simple one! I wanted golf bags that looked sleek, stylish, timeless and had amazing build quality. To be honest I didn’t even think of any other brand – it had to be VESSEL!

VESSEL: That's fantastic to hear. Speaking of VESSEL, do you have a favorite product from our lineup?

Rick Shiels: As I write this I’m currently out in Dubai filming and I am using the VLX 2.0 stand bag – I’m really liking it! It looks awesome but it’s also super functional.

VESSEL: We're thrilled to be a part of your golfing journey, Rick. Now, let's switch gears a bit. If you weren't a golf coach, what do you think you'd be doing?

Rick Shiels: I did well at school in two subjects.. Sport and drama, so I guess something to do with one of those two! But having said that I’ve always thought if I didn’t work in golf id be a landscape gardener!

VESSEL: That's a fascinating alternate path! And to add a fun twist, share with us one fact about you that has nothing to do with golf.

Rick Shiels: I once played Football (Soccer) at Old Trafford, the home of my favourite team Manchester United!
