1. Be Patient When Planning Your Shot
Check the map and take wind into account
If you want to be successful in Golfing Around, you need to take your time and plan your shot carefully. Just like in real golf. Check and re-check the map as many times as necessary and pay attention to the wind. That might require some angle tweaking. Make your shot only when you have it all under control.
Holding the power meter will top it out for a few seconds. However, its power will decrease slowly before rising again. This will help you hit your ball with the ideal power.
2. Line Up Your Shot
Use the map to check the trajectory of your ball
Golfing Around allows you to adjust your shot while looking at the course map, thus making it possible for you to check the trajectory of your shot and line it up with higher precision. The map view is useful for putts as well, as it allows you to make sure that you will hit the target.
3. Anticipate The Ball’s Movement Once It Hits The Ground
The course map in Golfing Around allows you to line up your shot almost perfectly. However, it doesn’t tell you how your ball will move after it hits the ground. This is something YOU must anticipate when planning your shot. If you fail to anticipate how your ball will roll and bounce after hitting the ground, you will more than likely overshoot it all.
4. Avoid Penalizations
Stay away from water and sand traps
No matter what it takes, try to stay away from water and sand. Making accurate shots out of there is practically impossible. You will see that the bar will wave and turn red immediately. If you have bad luck and you hit the water with your first shot, the game will skip you directly to your third shot.
5. Use Long Putts When Your Shot Skips Over The Green
Keep bounce and wind variables under control
If your ball skips over the green, Golfing Around recommends you to use a chipper for your next shot. And that’s not necessarily a good idea. If you switch to a long putter instead, you will be able to keep the bounce and wind variables under control and achieve a more precise shot. Plus, the ground in Golfing Around is always flat. This means you don’t’ have to worry about hills.
