Looks like it needs a lot of fine tuning to make it enjoyable, maybe alter swinging speed?
Dunno if you have done this but if you havn't it's pretty simple:

Make an OR switch with about 20 pistons:
||-|
||--|
||---| ......................... [x]
||----|
||-----|

|| = wall
- = piston
| = blocks with mag key on them
[x] mag switch
. = nothing

put a mag key on each block and have the pistons at different max lengths going downwards.
On your flashy light thing at the top set it to when it stops on each light, it activates a different OR switch, the further along it goes.
eg, it stops at the darkest/farthest right light and activates the longer piston.

Set the mag switch to increase in speed as the key gets closer, connect it to the wobble bolt on the club and viola
p.s. make sure all the mag switches are out of range of the mag switch when at min length, but the shortest one still reaches when it's at its max length

Sorry if that's hard to understand, if you actually want to try this (doubt you will) then I'll be happen to go into more detail if you're confused :)
sorry also if you have already done something like this xD


Another thing, you could make your bunker actually slow down the ball I reckon, just put lots of tiny circle shapesas flecks and it should slow the ball a bit.

I already have one in place, although it is a lot different from what you described.

For my device, I have a key on a piston, which goes left and right when grabbed (As seen by the power meter in the video). When the second grab switch is hit, the switch key, attached to the club is emitted. This allows for the emitted club to have different speeds.

Love the idea! I'll try to implement it! Just as long as it doesn't interfere with the club, I'm game!

Thanks for the comments! Oh... and I don't ever say this, but I will now, plz heart! :P
