Mark Crossfield is one of the social media’s most popular golfing figures, with almost 200,000 followers on YouTube, in excess of 34,000 Twitter devotees, and nearly 60,000 Facebook ‘likes’.
He is also one of the presenters of the new Sky Sports show Golf Juice. His videos cover coaching, equipment, and course reviews, all delivered in his individual – often irreverent – style.
And he will be joined at the show by PGA professional Matt Lockey, who also enjoys a substantial following on social media, where he’s better known as ‘Coach Lockey‘.
The duo often works together to produce YouTube videos and will be reunited once more to entertain visitors at the show.
Six lucky show visitors will, each day, win the chance to have a 30-minute lesson with Crossfield and Lockey, which will be recorded and shown on the former’s YouTube channel.
Mark Crossfield, who has been coaching golf for more than 20 years, will also host the daily ‘Innovations in Golf’ section on stage, which focuses on gadgets and equipment new to the market.
Welcoming Crossfield to the show, Events Director Simon Jones said: “Mark is the epitome of the social media star: somebody with excellent knowledge to impart, in an engaging way, on a specialist subject.”
He went on to say “In just a few short years, his ever-expanding fan base has enabled him to become an established part of the modern golf media landscape and a ‘golf guru’ to the digital generation. His unique, enthusiastic style will enhance the event and add another interactive level to the show.“
Mark Crossfield added: “I love golf shows. I love the excitement and the buzz about them, and the enthusiasm for the sport that visitors generate. So I was delighted to be asked to work with the guys from the London Golf Show.”
He added “It will give me the opportunity to meet some of the many people who watch us on YouTube and to give a few lessons to show visitors. Also, and this is a great one for me because I love playing with gadgets. I’ll also be presenting the ‘Innovations in Golf’ section, which will highlight some of the great new ideas in the game – and also some of the wackiest. I can’t wait to get started.“
