You're not wrong, but a penalty for helping a casual player fix a flip during the round is among the dumbest rules in golf. Again, not disagreeing with your evaluation of the situation, but sometimes golf rules are so out of touch with reality.
It's been awhile since a "Rules am stupid" fellow showed up here.
Or, post it... and don't. (Evil laugh)
The best bit of advice that I heard was for the player to go to the professional and make his clubs a little bit shorter by taking an inch or two of the handle.
When the player replied"
"Would that make me swing better'
The response was
" No but they will fit into the dustbin easier'"
I was a single and joined the young man for 5 holes. Then he went home. The 5 holes I played with him I went double, birdie, birdie, double, birdie. First time I ever broke 70 with a volatile 69. But the course rating is 61 which is -7 so it's not doing anything good for my estimated handicap. Not going to count any penalty strokes.
All excellent advice, and nothing there that gets you a golfing penalty. One caution, if a large part of that very wise advice is given to the same person, it could risk becoming a health hazard.
True on your last sentence -- at that point I tell my Caddie to tell him/her. Cheers.

I absolutely hate it when I’m swinging well and someone mentions something about my swing after the turn. Makes it tough to concentrate on playing golf, not golf swing.
That could be annoying.
You could complement them on their weight shift?
