PGA professional and golf coach Georgia Ball recorded herself practicing at a driving range when an unsolicited man tried to give her swing advice.

Though Ball is better at golf than most, the man said she “shouldn’t be doing that” with her swing.

“What you’re doing there, you shouldn’t be doing that,” he said.

“OK!” Ball said, politely explaining she was making a swing change, to which the man dismissed her experience and told her to swing faster.

“I’ve been playing golf for 20 years,” he said. “What you need to do is follow through a lot quicker than what you’re doing right now.”

Ball tried again to explain her swing work but the man insisted she hit a ball.

She did so to a similar swing to the first, but the man took credit for the result, unaware of Ball’s expertise as one of the “best players in the world.”

“See how much better that was?” the man said.

Ball laughed off the interaction, thanking the man for his advice.

Ball then hinted that she is of the “best.”

“Thanks for your advice,” she said.

Comments on her video expressed frustration at the “mansplaining.”

“Mansplaining hurts me physically,” one user wrote.

“Me who knows nothing about golf: ‘She’s going through a SWING CHANGE SIR!!’” another said.

“Please be meaner,” another wrote.
