Who is your "that guy"?
I moved to a new area and don't know that many people. I have a few buddies I play with here and there, but I would say I play about 75% of the time by myself. That means I get to play with a lot of random people and have realized there is that one guy that drives me insane, to the point where I can't hold it in and I usually end up being really rude to them even though I try very hard not to be.
The swing I've created is due to having very messed up left shoulder. I would say it's not to far off of a "normal" swing, because I've had people tell me I have a good looking swing. I have to come more inside and keep my swing close to my body and I stay pain free, If I get outside of that and have a more traditional path to the ball, my shoulder feels like it's going to explode.
The situation goes like this. I get paired up with a two or threesome and every now and then one of them is "that guy". It usually starts out halfway/ 2/3rds down the front nine. I have a normal round going a few bogies, a couple of pars, maybe a birdie if I'm lucky. Then I'll totally 'F' up a drive and "that guy" will say something like, "you should play your driver up in your stance more."
Awesome! Thanks for the advice! I've just watched you slice almost every single one of your tee shots, and I've waited for you to make triple or quadruple bogie on every single hole so far and you want to give me advice? - Is what I want to say from the get go. But I never do. I usually just say I'll try that next time.
But when "that guy" insists on giving me advice, usually the third time I blow up and call him out. He's usually the reason for the third shanked shot, because he's already pissed me off with the first two swing tips. You haven't even made one par all day!!! Why do you insist on giving me advice after I hit a few bad shots? I don't even like unsolicited advice from players that are far better than me. I don't give anyone advice that I don't know, unless they ask what I think. I don't know what physical limitations anyone has, and I'm not a PGA instructor. I don't even give my regular playing partners advice unless they are really struggling and it's because I see they are doing something totally different than I'm use to seeing them do.
