SOLUTION: "Be Direct/" One suggestion is moment someone starts offering advice, you saY, telling me what to do is making me uptight, let's it after the round so I can work on it in the can politely say, 'hat sounds helpful, but right working on another part of my game." If someone on giving advice, simply get away. If riding in a er, walk to your ball. Before they can make a comment, one of your own. Whatever--just set personal and get your space back so you can concentrate on your' game.
