I think unsolicited advice is rude and never appropriate.
I have 4 fusions in my back and do not have the most beautiful swing (short backswing and short follow through) and am not long off the tee. It never fails when I play with strangers that I get some "helpful" advice that I should turn more and I'd hit it further.
I nip it in the bud by saying Yes I do mind and I take lessons with a teaching pro if I need help. Usually the rest of the day is fine
I predict that on monday a player will said that he shot the best score at the Tour Championship 2019 but he didn't win either the tournament or the FedEx Cup because of the handicap applied and that aint fair.
That’s why a series of 72 hole tournaments for playoffs will never generate the level of interest unless Tiger is playing. It is no different than any other weekend. Brooks does have a point in being bored and losing interest throughout a round.
I realize a 1 vs 64. 2 vs 63, etc over 36 holes, and then 32, 16... will probably never fly, but at least there would be more excitement than which of the top 5 guys will win... at least for me.
I've been on board that they should make up their minds: It should either be points, or playoffs - If we do points, let's do points (previous format). If we do playoffs, I like your proposal - points on the season to get in, then survival of the fittest.
Instead, we get a mish mash of points and elimination in this last two tourneys prior to a weirdass handicapped final tourney format. It's arbitrary and we'll see how it plays out.
Maybe it'll be fun. Maybe it'll fall on its face. But, either way, I expect to see the best players playing great golf. So it's not the end of the world regardless of whatever format they choose. so far, I've seen some fun golf, but, (just me), it's seemed less exciting than previously for whatever reason.
