If you’re a golfer or just love watching the sport, there’s a high chance that you’re already following the greats. There’s a wide range of golf professionals out there, each with a unique personality.
But golf pros aren’t the only ones online you can learn from, marvel at, and enjoy every time you check social media. If you aren’t following non-pro golf influencers, you’re missing out! Some are educational, some are purely for fun, but they’re all golf-mad.
Here are our favorite golf influencers to follow in 2022. Whichever platform you favor, you can find amazing golf in many forms.
We recommend following these 7 for a fantastic combination of tricks, tips, interviews, golf courses, clubs, and anything else you might want to see.
George and Wesley Bryan started off as aspiring professional golfers, but they didn’t end up going quite that route. Their dad is a golf instructor, so the brothers had a solid foundation. But early in their pre-pro days, they discovered a passion for something a little more fun-focused and less serious—trick shots.
Their YouTube channel is where it all started, and they’ve gained a massive following. From there, just about every golf-related publication picked up on them, and before they knew it, they were “the trick shot guys”.
Their social media mixes tricks, expert tips, playoffs with other golfers, and vlogs documenting their golfing journeys. YouTube is their most active and most value-packed platform.
Tania Tare doesn’t take anything too seriously, but it is great fun. She’s a pro golfer, but she’s definitely more well-known for being a trickshot master.
Her social media feeds are filled with impossible shots, eye-popping tricks, and shenanigans with the golf ball and club that you didn’t even think could happen!
To give your brain a break from the mind-bending shots she pulls off, her feed is interspersed with gear and the occasional personal post which gives you some insight into her life outside of golf. Or lack thereof… Golf seems to be in everything she does!
Be warned, though… You may find yourself scrolling through her profile watching trick shots for hours on end.
Here we have a young gun who was inspired by our first pick, the Bryan Bros. From the age of 9 or so, Garrett Clark was already creating YouTube videos, determined to be a YouTube star. And when we got the chance to meet George Bryan, he took the opportunity to find out how he could do what his heroes were doing.
Although an accomplished and talented golfer, Garrett began to enjoy regular golf less and less… And messing around with trick shots more and more. He was creating fun, interesting content and his fan base began to soar.
Aside from his trick shots, Garrett posts many videos of him and his buddies messing around on the golf course, aiming for fun (and sometimes ridiculous) challenges, and enjoying themselves. He also has a ton of sponsorships, which pop up from time to time.
If beautiful golf courses are one of the reasons you watch the game, then Patrick Koenig is a must-follow. He’s a professional golf photographer and focuses mainly on golf course photoshoots.
His feed is stacked with stunning golf course photographs, mostly throughout the USA but with a few other social places thrown in as well—Ireland and Scotland included.
As well as being eye candy for avid golf lovers, his posts tend to come with interesting info and a good dose of humor tossed in there too.
Worth a follow to see those smooth, spectacular golf course views on your newsfeed!
Kira K. Dixon
Kara K. Dixon is a reporter for Golf Channel and a former Miss America! That makes for an interesting combination of content, and her profiles sure are full of exciting stuff.
There’s a lot of golf, but isn’t that what we love? From pictures and videos of Kira on the golf course to photos of her on the job interviewing professional golfers, her profiles give a good dose of information along with eye-catching images.
There’s also a bit of wholesome personal content thrown in… Including her new dog, Steve, travel content, and the occasional sport she’s covering at the time.
All in all, a fun, laid-back account that’s filled with great content, about 60% of which is directly golf-related.
Anthony Taranto is also a little different. He’s not a golfer or a trick-shotter… He’s a club artist whose creations are in high demand.
You can get lost in his feed for hours if you love those oddly satisfying videos. He often posts a time-lapse of his designs, from stamping words into the metal to creating textures to painting and finishing the designs.
Anthony is the one to follow if you’re curious to see how perfectly golf and art can overlap. His content is unique, fascinating, and leaves you wanting to invest in new, personalized clubs… Even if you don’t actually play!
These are the golf influencers to follow in 2022. They’re not the pros, and you certainly won’t see the same kind of content from them as you will from Tiger Woods or Bryson DeChambeau, to name just a few.
But they’re absolutely worth following if you want your newsfeed filled with fascinating, exciting, jaw-dropping golf content. Not to mention that your golfing general knowledge will skyrocket!
Give them a follow, whether you’re a golfer yourself, after the latest news and info, or just love the sport. They’ll make your social media a little more fun!
