A man wants to explain the game of golf to a professional golfer: The man's tampering problem

A man wants to explain the game of golf to a professional golfer: The man's tampering problem

HThe Georgia Ball video could be shown for years to come. A perfect example of an insult, as the Oxford English Dictionary defines it: “to explain something unnecessarily, arrogantly, or dismissively (usually directed at a woman).”

Georgia Ball is one of the few women in the UK who can call herself a PGA-certified professional golfer. As a golf instructor, she is constantly fully booked. To reach more people, she offers online sessions and sells subscriptions to videos explaining how to perform punches correctly.

Last week, Ball posted one such video. A man's voice can be heard off camera interrupting a training session at a driving range near Liverpool. The man says: “Excuse me.” “What you're doing – you shouldn't be doing that, you should be swinging and then moving on. You're too slow on your way up.”

The basic problem with mansplaining

The video shows the basic problem with insult: the other person is not seen as a conversation partner, but merely a recipient. It is not listened to. Paul tries to explain that she hits this way because she's training for something, but the man keeps interrupting her: “No, I know, but what you're doing… you've got to do it differently.” He knows that, after all. , he's been playing golf for 20 years (a similar length as a ball). The man watches the ball as he hits a clean shot and then says with satisfaction: “See how much better it is now?”

Nearly 12 million people on Tiktok have now watched how a professional golfer tries to escape unwanted advice. Ball told the BBC at the weekend that she could laugh about it, but the situation was definitely “uncomfortable”.
