Controlling Your Distance
Of course, you dont hit every club full if you want to stay in bounds. Lets
continue the sample hole to see how to control the distance of your shots.
you're 50 yards from the pin, so you select you pitching wedge (P-Wedge)
because the chart says that pitching wedge can whack it 100 yards if you
hit it full. But you dont want to hit it full; you want to hit half a
wedge 50 yards;
1. Press the SPACE BAR or MOUSE to start you swing.
Notice that the color rise much more slowly with a wedge than it does
with a driver.
The smaller the club, the slower the rise - because for most humans
smaller clubs (Like the high numbered irons) are easier to hit than big
ones. (Driver and fairway Woods)
2. Press the SPACE BAR or MOUSE the moment the rising color reaches the
Half Line (50% or Red Line on power bar) - thats 50% of the wedge's full
distance (100 Yards for P-Wedge) or 50 yards at the Red line or 50% mark.
Remember that each line in the swing zone represents 10 percent of any
club's posted maximum distance.
3. As the color decends, make you final tap right on the botton lime of the
swing zone to hit the ball traightaway. (0% as shown above)
The ball should loop gently 50 yards into the air then nestle onto the
green inches from the cup.
Overswingin and Underswinging
What happens if you dont make you second, or distance, tap directly on the
100% line of the swing Zone?
1. If you make the second tap late - inside the power swing zone - you over
That means your hot can carry longer than the posted maximum distance of
It also means that if you misjudge your third, or accuracy, tap, the
resulting hook or slice is randomly exaggerated.
Notice that if you let the color rise to the very top of the Power Bar,
you dont have to make a second tap on the space bar or mouse - the bar
bounces of the top and descendss on its own.
2. If you're early on the second tap - beneath the 100% line of the swing
zone - you underswing (that's what we did with the pitching wedge in the
That means the distance of your shot will be some percentage liss than
the full posted distance of your club.
How much les depends on how early you make your tap - the earlier the
tap, the shorter your hit.
Hooking and Slicing
If there's no wind and if you make yourthird, or accuracy, tap right on
the bottom line of the swing zone, the ball should fly straight. but just
as you cant hit every club full, its unlikely that you can hit every shot
straight. And sometime you dont want to hit it straight.
1. How to hit a hook, so that it "draws" the ball to the left (for a right
After you second, or distance, tap, the color decends toward the bottom
line of the swing zone.
Press the Space bar or mouse before the folor reaches the botton line -
in other words, swing early - and your shot hooks to the left.
how far it hooks depends uupon how early you swing (the earlier the
swing, the bigger the hook), and how hard you swing (if you overswing into
the power swing zone over 100%, the hook is randomly exaggerated)
2. How to hit a slice that "Fades" the ball to the right (For a
After you second, or distance, tap, the color descends toward the bottom
line or the swing zone.
press the Space bar or mouse AFTER the color reaches the bottom line - in
other words, swing late - and you shot slices to the right.
How far it slices depends upon how late you swing (the later the swing,
the bigger the slice), and how hard you swing (if you overswing inn to
power sone, the slice is randomly exaggerated.)
On the Green - Putting
Use the same technique to aim and stroke a putt as you use to hit and club
Aiming and Stroking
1. imagine an invisible straight line that connects your ball, the hole,
and aiming ball at the top of the screen.
2.Use the Right and Left arrow keys to move the Aiming Ball onto the end of
that imaginary line.
3.Use the three-tap procedure on the power bar to control the distance and
direction of your stroke.
REMEMBER THAT THE MAXIMUM DISTANCE ON YOUR PUTTER IS "80" FEET, THUS
EVERY SEGMENT ON THE POWER BAR REPRESENTS "8" FEET.
