Hi!

When I'm playing with golfers who have the same level as I, I often see them curving their drives to the extreme. They are also longer than me.
How do they do that?
Do they have a special driver, or do they have more power than impact in their skills? It seems a good idea, as you can go around trees etc. with your drive on some holes.

Good day.

Would be helpful to know what level you are at now.

Being able to "bend" the ball is due to how much skill stats you have applied.

A bit more information would be helpful.

Hit the ball straight and long is better that being able to bend the ball when first starting out in the game.

I'm at Level 40 and my stats are placed at about 40 on power/impact and at about 20 in skill(as far as I remember. It might be 45 and 18).

I'm using a driver that gives +5 power and -2 or -3 impact.

Hi,

First of all, i don't know how well you know this game but tell you the basic of makin a hook or slice shot.
The ball on the lower rightside of your screen has a red dot on it, you can move the dot left or right, depending on the shot you wanna make, hook or slice. You can move the red dot by right clicking on the spot you want it or by holding down the shift key and then use arrowkeys to move the red dot.

The more skill you have the bigger your hook/slice will be.
However on your level i would focus on power and impact. Hook and slice will not give you a longer drive at this time. Most shots can be done straight, which will be much easier for you to control.

Hope this helps a bit.

Thank you. I did not know about the red dot. I only use that for spin on my approach-shots.
