They key to improving your game and mastering Golf Clash is understanding why this shot reacted how it did. That way you can improve your game and prepare yourself for future shots.
To help golfers improve, we have put together a quick guide that highlights some of the more common questions we receive, along with some tips on how to improve your game!
Before we start!
This consistency is what allows golfers to master the game by winning multiple tournaments and earning every single Trophy.
Where a shot lands is entirely based on the shot setup, shot execution, the course layout, and the wind conditions. There are however several key areas which could explain why a shot has missed or reacted differently to how you expected. Some of these key areas are detailed below:
The Impact of the Wind
How high your shot goes in the air – the higher the shot the more the wind will affect the flight of the ball.
How long your ball is in the air for – if your ball is in the air for a long time, the wind will have more time to affect the flight path. This is why long drives are affected more by the wind when compared to short chips.
Course elevation – hitting the ball over a ravine or onto an island? If so, make sure that you adjust your aim more for the wind. It is also important to adjust your aim if you are hitting your shot uphill or downhill.
Curl – curling your shot into the wind or against the wind is also a great way to control your shots. Looking to hit some huge curl shots? Try curling your ball in the same direction as the wind.
Adding Perfect Power
Try to ensure that the bottom of the golf ball touches the small points visible at the top and bottom of the power guide.
Adding too little or too much power can be the difference in the ball going in or missing the target. This is even more important for short shots, as even a very small change in power can have a big impact on the outcome of your shot.
Adding Power and Curl
Be sure to pay close attention to the colour and speed on the needle when you are adding power whilst also attempting to curl your shot.
Target Placement - The Fringe
We highly recommend that you always try to avoid placing your shot target on the fringe. Where possible, you should try to make sure that your target is on the green, especially when trying to chip in.
Target Placement - On The Green
Placing your target further away from the home is risky. This is because a small mistake in the shot setup or execution will be amplified further if the ball must travel for further before it drops into the hole.
Target Position - Elevation
This seems straightforward, however Point B is much lower than Point A. Placing your target on an area that is lower/higher than the area that you want your ball to land is problematic. This is because aiming lower/higher will impact the overall flight of the ball and shot trajectory. In the example above, even if you judge the wind perfectly, the ball will land short of Point A.
So how do you avoid this? When possible, try to avoid moving your target onto areas of higher/lower elevation. You can then use power or accuracy to compensate for the wind. For example, you can compensate for a left to right wind by hitting a “Great” shot on the left.
This is by far one of the trickiest concepts to master, but as they say, practice makes perfect.
