you need to be shooting a 55 or so without gamebreakers. then do the power boosting trick, and with a bit of luck and practise youll get there.

maybe.... iv been trying for ages lol

the power boosting thing? Am I missing something? Sorry to be slow and out of the loop, but what is this trick?

Minty

you have to get full red ball on our power boost, and spin the ball full spin (so the blue dot is outside the ball). make sure that lands in the fairway. gives youa 25% ppower boost per shot and 25% extra gamebreaker per shot

are you serious? LOL I can never get full power. Do you need your stats to be full for that to happen? any tips in doing this easily?

You need to tap the button faster ;)

LOL! I think if I tapped any faster, my controller would break!:D

LOL, I think after playing Tiger my controller is on the way out!

But seriously, you have to tap faster. I can get a full red ball everytime but I can't get the fade/draw thing going as well, so I probably fill just over 3 game breakers a round.

Still nowhere near the top 25, think I came 24th once on a really quite day :p

I can get the red ball now. One more quick question. When you say fade, are you guys talking about aimg with the shape stick and hitting the ball sideways?

Minty
05-15-2006, 07:11 AM
yeah. you have to get the full red ball, then just before you sstart the forward swing, aim the ball full left or right. then just make sure it lands in the fairway and your sorted.

but you cant use your shape stick for the rest of the round then

What you mean by that?

If you want to win the tournament you need to be shooting 47 - 48 without any gamebreakers (regularly). Then learn the full power full draw (explained above) any you're in with a chance. The extra gamebreaker will mean it is possible to get 4 or 5 in the 18 holes. Plus the 20yds extra driver distance (you have on all subsequent drives) can make the the difference.

*****this distance boost only works on right to left curl drives*****

Be aware that if you use the shape stick again after the inital draw, you will lose your 20 yds extra driver distance (until you do another full power full draw drive that is).

PS: There's no point playing online until you've maxed your character's stats in career mode. If it is possible to break the controller by tapping LB, I would definately have managed it by now - they're pretty tough (thankfully).

2 questions.

1)So why can you not use your shape stick for the rest of the round? This proves to be tricky since on tournaments usually you can not use spin.

2) How abotu green chipping. I was playaing a round last night and this guy used a pitcher to get the ball in the hole every single time:confused: :confused: :mad:

Any idea how they do that?

i want to give you props for stats man! I respect those impressive numbers you have on this game!:bow: :bow: Do you mind if I get a game in with you one day? I just want to see how this game should really be played!

1, you CAN use you shape stick the rest of the round, you just loose the extra distance and gamebreaker unless it's a driver curled from right to left. (You can always do another driver draw to get your gamebreaker and distance again)

2, Lots of practice.

Thanks for the answers! Not sure if you asaw this in my previous post, but I would love to play one game with you if you are cool with that.

be careful about the chipping on the green- any decent player wont and will leave you bad feedback for doing it, and youll begin to get kicked out of games a lot

waaaaaaaak, you still on for this tournie?? going to go out of the forums to get some players, sure youll know a few??

I agree! Seeing that guy using that technique got me pretty darn mad! I would never use that against another player.

Alienprime:

Didn't see your post, I think I was submitting mine, (cheers, although I'm certainly not the best). Will send u a friend request and look out for you. Trying to beat a 41 on pebble at the moment however (like that'll happen).

Minty:

I'm still up for the tourney, but as you know Killar's pulled out. I'm a bit reluctant to invite Midnight, as we'd draw at the best (best for me/Europe that is).

Pretty sure I can get an American to join in tho. Will keep you posted. When are you planning to arrange it for?

Thanks! I'm on most of the time, hopefully our time difference will still manage us to get a game:)

Minty

dunno mate, just trying to get enough people to have like 10 vs 10.fairly sure people like prepaid emporer and potts2 would be up for it, and wont be too hard to get some yankees to beat

if not we just have a uk competition for 2nd place :p

Waaaaaaaak
05-15-2006, 04:45 PM
Thinking about it, shall I invite as many Yanks as I can? There seems no shortage of Europian (well British) players.

Personally I don't mind people chipping/pitching on the green. Sometimes it's an easier shot. If you have the ability to be that accurate with a wedge, why not use that skill? (I always ask before doing it though.)

Minty
05-15-2006, 06:11 PM
yeah, invite the yanks as well as the Brits. get a bit of life into the tiger forums :p
like you say, getting a UK team would be easy, its just the Septics that are having the problems ;)

most of the time it isnt skill chipping tho- aim to the side slightly, double the distance and add one... sorted. its for people that cant putt :nana

I agree with that. I never think chipping is worth it anyway though, because if you miss you go miles past (as you've doubled the distance). If I'm a long way from the hole I'll pitch it though. It's by no means an exact science however (but at least if you miss, you're not off the back of the green).

Again, I rarely do it, (mostly when the putt camera is unavailable).

alienprime
05-15-2006, 06:29 PM
That's exactly what the guy did. I saw him take I "club" (well increased distance) and he shot it straight in.... Is that na automatic in every time?

Well i would love to play in whatever tournaments you guys are talking about, but I am still a medium skilled player. One day though, things will be different:)

Minty
05-15-2006, 06:52 PM
dont worry about skill, its about fun at the end of the day. oh, and pride!!

the chipping isnt an exact science and isnt a guarenteed drain, but with practise it all but is. but it will end up with you struggling to get a game with good players if you cannot putt, as youll be left negative feedback. and most of the people that play regularly will end up knowing to avoid ya :p

I am all for fun!:D So when is this going to take place?

Minty
05-15-2006, 08:06 PM
well, we originally set a date then postponed it, then no-one responded to PMs or the thread in the tournament section!!

we need minimum of 6 Brits and 6 US...

i feel the new thread coming on!!

I'm still game as long as it's after this month! Exams and all :(
