“Hard, But Not Too Hard”

In a recent game of mini-golf, I told someone to hit the ball “hard, but not too hard”. A stock answer, I know, but I started to wonder: What does that even mean? Like, how would you quantify it? What would the units be? (Ergs?) How many units would be hard, soft, and hard-but-not-too-hard? But really, what a meaningless answer.

…Whatever, I won at mini-golf.
