In the game, the player competes against another player to putt the ball in as few plays as possible. To be the best in the game, a player needs to practice a lot.
How to Win in Ultimate Golf
The player with the minimum number of turns/shots/plays to putt the ball in the hole is the winner.
In the case of a tie, the two players will take a play each. After playing the shot, the player with less distance between the ball and the hole wins.
Aim the ball properly
In Aim Mode, you are able to have an aerial view of the ball’s trajectory course before you swing the club. This helps you to position the ball, where you want it to land, and the direction. This view also shows the final position the ball needs to be put in, the entire golf course showing the rough patches, the sand, etc.
So, in this Aim Mode, you decide the position where the ball will land after it has been hit. The trajectory shown is quite accurate to expect the wind factor taken into account. That is where the skills of the player would be tested.
Hitting the Ball
After aiming, the player would need to hit the ball. Here comes the complexity in the gameplay. First, tap the swing button on the lower right corner of the screen. The player has to drag the ball back to the circle until it glows green.
The player needs to perfectly align else it may go farther or shorter depending upon the position. After aligning, release the ball once the pointing arrow is in the dead center, else it may go right or left as per the position of the arrow when you release.
Play with the wind
While aiming, the player can see the wind speed but the wind speed wouldn’t be represented in the shot view arc. The player has to take the wind speed into account separately. Basically, if there is a heavy wind from right to left, then place your aim slightly right and if there is heavy wind from left to right, then place your aim slightly left.
Draw/Fade the Ball
Draw/Fade is when the ball curves gently to the left/right after it is hit.
When you pull back on the ball, if you pull back to the right, then the ball will fade to the right when struck. When you pull back to the left, the ball will draw to the left, when struck. The amount of fade/draw the player wants to apply depends on the how far left/right the ball is pulled, the attributes of the club and the ball.
How to add Sidespin, Topspin, or Backspin to the shot
Spin here refers to the direction, the ball will bounce after its landing. To add spin, click on the ball icon in the lower left corner of the spin. The amount of spin will be determined by the attributes of the club and the attributes of the ball.
