Golf – How To Play

Golf – How To Play


  1. press finger down on ball and hold (you will hear a click sound)
  2. pull club back by dragging ball back away from the direction you want to hit.  energy line grows longer to a peak, then recedes once past peak.
  3. release finger to launch ball. 
  4. your must play at least one practice hole before playing a full round of 18 holes


  • try to get the ball in the hole in as few shots as possible. (duh)
  • try to hit the green as soon as you can.  putting is easier then hitting from off the green.
  • avoid bunkers, rough, and hazards. (also duh)
  • try to aim for center of the green until you develop your accuracy.
  • to get another perspective on your shot, try pinching and dragging the screen to zoom in and out and to pan around. some shots are easier if you adjust the zoom.
  • release the ball past the peak to get a shorter bounce, or before to get a longer one.
  • try to line up the ball with where your finger is touching (the club) when you are pulling back. the ball will travel in this direction.
  • the higher your shot, the greater effect the wind will have on it.
  • try a few practice holes before playing a round. 
  • the wind often changes, come back later and maybe the round will play easier (or harder)
