I have a name for a move

…that has a sole purpose of zeroing out a perfect move and/or creating false power.

Including but not limited to:

1. Anything that intentionally creates or holds lag
2. Restricting hip turn
3. Swinging to right field
4. Hitting down at the ball

These are all Bandersnatches. Lewis Carroll would be proud of my triple entendre there.

“If you can’t play good, play fast.”….Brent Bailey, my HS golf coach

Maybe that will be the title of my book. “Beware the Bandersnatches”

The Walrus is golf instructors, Tiger is the Red Queen, Kostis and Miller are Tweedledum and Tweedledee and I am the Mad Hatter.

The Jabberwocky is whatever flavor of the month system that has everyone salivating.

OK all you Alice’s, avoid the Bandersnatches.

    And the Golfer, inspired with an idea so new
    It was matter for general approve,
    Rushed madly ahead and was lost to their view
    In his zeal to discover the Move.
    But while he was seeking to hold lag with care,
    A Bandersnatch swiftly drew nigh
    And grabbed at the Golfer, who shrieked in despair,
    For he knew it was useless to fly.
    He offered large discount—he offered a check
    (Drawn “to bearer”) for seven-pounds-ten:
    But the Bandersnatch merely extended its neck
    And grabbed at the Golfer again.
    Without rest or pause—while those frumious jaws
    Went savagely snapping around—
    He shanked with no hip turn, restricting his hips,
    Till fainting he fell to the ground.
    The Bandersnatch fled as Monte appeared
    In cargo shorts and fear-stricken yell:
    The Mad Bomber remarked “It is just as I feared!”
    Another poor golfer consigned to Hell

    I should have added with apologies to Lewis Carroll – The Hunting of the Snark
