A lot of things can contribute to slower swing speeds.  If you post your swing in the Members Swings section, perhaps the issue could be identified.   I could be something simple.

 

Some things are just too good to let slide.

:-P

That is a completely accurate representation!  :whistle:

Make the preceding string of words a correct English sentence using punctuation.

You're missing part of it....

 

James, where John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.

 

 

I always get a little annoyed when a sentence paints me into a corner where I have no choice but to write "that that" or "had had", sometimes I reformulate the sentence, other times I'll drop one of the "thats" because most people don't even notice and sometimes I say, "**** it" and leave it as is.

Wow, they never gave me the second part. Now I can baffle my nieces even more. Thanks!

 

Maybe I'll even write "affect" and ask them to find the spelling mistake:smartass:

Reminds me of this sentence: Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

 

 

I put @mmoan2's into my personal google machine and came up with Wikipedia, which explains it oh so clearly:  

 

Quote:

"James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher" is an English sentence used to demonstrate lexical ambiguity and the necessity of punctuation,[1] which serves as a substitute for the intonation,[2] stress, and pauses found in speech.

 

........

 

The sentence can be understood more clearly by adding punctuation and emphasis:

James, while John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.[5]

 

 

 

See, with punctuation it makes complete sense!

A new thread just got started called "Driver Dilemna ..." and it made me chuckle.  I believe I also saw @Ernest Jones write dilemna once very recently too.  It makes me chuckle because I had a (really smart) friend who used to spell it that way and we made fun of him to no end.

 

In fact, the group of us starting pronouncing the word with a hard "n" and it's almost second nature to me to this day. :beer:

Be careful.  That's how dictionary entries end up getting changed.

A high school golf coach once wrote "out of bounce" on the local rules sheet.
