Target Placement - The Fringe

The fringe in Golf Clash is tricky, as it can be very uneven compared to the green. So placing your target on the fringe is risky, as any small mistake, ball movement or wind misjudgement can cause your shot to land on a different area of the fringe. This will then result in the shot deviating from the path shown by the ball guide.

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

When you are attempting to make a chip shot into the hole, try to place your target as close to the hole as possible, whilst still giving the ball enough time to slow down and drop into the hole.

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 Positioning - Elevation

This is scenario is somewhat less common but is still extremely important. Where you place your shot target can have a HUGE impact on the flight path/trajectory of your shot.

Let's imagine that you want your shot to land at Point A. With the tailwind, you would need to adjust your shot target to accommodate the wind conditions. This would make you want to place your target location at Point B.

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.
