If he asks for advice as to why he is hitting such AWFUL shots, I say, "See your pro for advice". Most rich people do not spend the time practicing the game to develop any skills, and have NO CLUE as to what to do. They want to play well (who doesn't?), but they think that buying expensive equipment and belonging to an exclusive club will do the trick. It does NOT, unless a player, any player, "pays his dues" at the practice area and the practice putting green. BUT---he does NOT have the time or ambition, so he does NOT improve. It is NOT my job to help him get rid of his bad habits. THAT is his responsibility.
