Spring Major Tournament Text Guide (April 12th, 2021)

Winter Sun Tournament (January 4, 2021)

The first Tournament of the year in Golf Clash is here. It is the Winter Sun Tournament.

Let’s jump right into the text guides for this tournament:

Koh Hong Resort Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top, Max Right Max Back
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 0%
Ball Quasar (Rookie/Pro)
Club(s) Extra Mile or Quarterback (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper (Rookie/Pro), Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Thorn (Pro/Expert)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 1 koh hong resorts drive

You should play this hole on the left-hand side and try to get as much distance here as possible by using all the topspin and sidespin to the right you have.

If you do have enough topspin you can also bounce over the bunker here to get the biggest distance but only do that if you have at least 5 bars of topspin with your setup.

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 1 koh hong resorts second shotNow you can approach the pin directly but this is not easy because you are only in the distance where you can use your wood club.

The problem is that you will come in too hot and there’s no way to prevent that and you won’t have enough backspin – so, the eagle here is really difficult to get and you will need to under-power your shot a little bit (I’d say 10%ish) to lay up on the green and aim for the birdie here in the first hole of the Winter Sun Tournament.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #2 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 3 – 5 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 30%
Ball Marlin, Navigator (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Viper (Rookie), Sniper (Pro/Expert)

This is a really straightforward hole where you only need to focus at the pin. Follow the guide as given in the table and you have the best chances for the hole-in-one here and you will not mess up the birdie. Use 3 – 5 bars of backspin to get the hole-in-one here at this hole of the Winter Sun Tournament.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top; Max Right 3 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
Ball Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 6 koh hong resorts driveYou want to play the right side here and get the ball on the small strip of fairway as far down as possible – this will give you the best chances to approach the green in your second shot.

Do that by using all the topspin you have as well as good amount of sidespin to the right as the fairway does slope down a little bit.

Use a Titan Ball here for your second shot to be able to play with a wood club with higher accuracy, otherwise, you need to do that second shot with something like the Big Dawg and you know how bad the ball guideline is there 🙂 (yes, I didn’t do that here, unfortunately…)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 6 koh hong resorts second shotFor the second shot you can now approach the pin directly and by adding about 3 bars of backspin you will come in with the right speed and it’s all about aiming right, adjusting wind and getting that perfect shot.

That’s one of the best opportunities to get an albatross in the Winter Sun Tournament and you should use this opportunity well.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #4 (Par 3)

Drive
↩️ Spin 3.5 Back (Headwind), 4.5 Back (Tailwind)
⛳️ Overadjust 20%
?  Ball any (Rookie), Quasar (Pro/Expert)
? Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 2 koh hong resortsThis is a really straightforward hole where you only need to focus on backspin so no special ball needed to add sidespin (but it helps for reducing wind).

So, aim directly at the pin and add the backspin as you can see above in the table and you have the best chances for the hole-in-one here and you will not mess up the birdie. The only tricky thing here is the extra adjustment of 20% for playing downhill but I see the best chances to get the hole-in-one here at this hole of the Winter Sun Tournament.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #5 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 4-5 Top 2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 40%
Ball Marlin (Rookie/Pro), Katana (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro) Backbone (Rookie) Goliath (Pro/Expert)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 8 koh hong resorts driveYou want to get your ball as close to the edge as possible with your drive and you’ll be able to “skip” the middle part of that hole completely and approach the pin in your second shot.

All you need to do is to adjust wind correctly and use some solid amount of topspin and you will be fine.

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 8 koh hong resorts second shotIn your second shot, you should have now an open shot through the trees and go bounce on that small fairway spot and aim your second bounce as well on the fairway.

Very important here is that you need to adjust 40% extra because you play so much downhill here so better be on the secure side when finding your landing position!

Koh Hong Resort Hole #6 (Par 5)

Drive
↩️ Spin 1 Back, 1 Right
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
Ball Katana, Quasar (Rookie/Pro) Kingmaker, Titan (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Big Dawg, Sniper (Rookie/Pro) Big Dawg, Sniper (Pro/Expert)

For this hole, you will need to use the ball settings to just land safely on the fairway. Try to get the ball roll as far down as you can. Overadjust the drive with approx for the downhill approach.

I’ll be honest with you, aim for the fairway and don’t do any experiments here and play it safe.

 

For the second shot,  use the Big Dawg and try to get the ball to bounce on the rough and the sand. I recommend using sidespin 2 for this shot. As for the club, it would be nice if you can go for the Katana.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #7 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 3 Top 2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 10%
Ball Navigator, Quasar (Rookie), Titan, Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Backbone, Sniper (Rookie/Pro) Backbone (Rookie) Goliath (Pro/Expert)

You want to get your ball as close to the edge as possible with your drive and you’ll be able to “skip” the middle part of that hole completely and approach the pin in your second shot.

All you need to do is to adjust wind correctly and use some solid amount of topspin and you will be fine.

In your second shot, you should use any club you are comfortable and get the aim straight for the pin. Get the ball bouncing on the fairway and move closer to the pin.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #8 (Par 3)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top; Max Left Max Top;
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
Ball Marlin, Navigator (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Backbone (Rookie), Sniper, Quarterback (Pro/Expert)  Backbone (Rookie), Sniper, Quarterback (Pro/Expert)

This is the toughest par 3 in the Winter Sun Tournament. You are going to play a massive downhill shot. DO NOT miss the shot and get to the rough or back of the green.

Aim for the pin accurately as you can see in the image and follow the table instructions to get it right.

Avoid any experiments like curl or overpower.

Koh Hong Resort Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Top; Max Left Max Top;
⛳️ Overadjust 10% 0%
Ball Katana (Rookie/Pro), Titan (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Viper, Big Dawg, Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 9 koh hong resorts driveThe last hole in the Winter Sun Tournament and you want to get as much distance as possible in your drive so you use the driver with the most distance and also a ball like the Katana.

You should play this hole in the left lane and make sure that you securely bounce it over the rough here as you can see in the image.

Use all the sidespin to the left and you will make sure that you will stay on the fairway without any experiments like curl or overpower.

golf clash paradise islands tournament text guide hole 9 koh hong resorts second shotIn your second shot you can now directly approach the pin and with a ball that has much Power paired with topspin you can reach the green and even get lucky and approch the pin for the albatross here directly.

  1. Hello there,
    What is meant by Silver State?
    Is state is as in one of the US states “the silver country” or it’s meant to describe a condition “the silver condition”?
    Kindly advise!

  2. On the St. Patrick Tournament 2020.

    I think there’s a mistake on Drumore Links Hole #6 (Par 5)
    It should be 20% 1st shot and 20% 2nd shot (not 20/-10)
    Can you confirm?
    Thanks

  3. Love your site. Wish I could print them but the ads are just too much. Thanks for the info though. I’d rather pay you and lose the ads.

    • Thanks 🙂 I wanted to have this info out for everyone for free rather than charging for it, so ads are a part. You can use an ad blocker if you want to 😉
      You can just print this page in your browser, should work just fine without paying

    • When playing downhill you need to adjust wind more as the ball has mor time to get affected by the wind. If you would normally adjust 2 rings, here you need to adjust 2.2 rings 🙂

  4. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this text guide. I have never had it so straightforward, comfortable and thrilled playing in a tourney, like I did today.

  5. How are you doing big boss! I would love, love, to see wind charts like that with adjustment (Ball Wind Resistance, Playing Downhill, etc.) for all the shots. Thank you for your service!

  6. Thanks big boss for the Vineyard tournament text guide! Does Tommy Golf use it to prepare his YouTube tutorials? I could not help but notice the uncanny similarity of his vineyard rookie tutorial, which came out later, including the use of similar phraseology to your work.

    Kind regards.

  7. Sequoia Creek Hole #9 (Par 5) Drive straight through the trees over the bunker onto the Right Fairway and you will find yourself with and Albatross chance and a guaranteed Eagle

    • I double checked, everything is there… “You really want to play the drive on the left side to get into a position that can get you to the green in your second shot. The islands looks intimidating but it’s actually not that difficult to land on. You need to bounce over that bunker there with a small backspin to make the ball stop and good sidespin to the left to get a nice line. In your second shot you can now approach the green but aiming for the albatross here is really difficult as the fairway slopes at the middle point giving the ball a different direction from just hitting one inch more to the right or left. Aim a little to the right of the pin as the green slopes down towards the pin, this will be better when you want to get lucky for the albatross. Use some topspin to get uphill here.”

  8. Hole #5 and Hole #6 are switched in the tournament. It messed me up a bit on qualifying. Other than that, I appreciate everything you do : ) .

  9. I’m “assuming” this is for Pro/Expert, from the middle tee box, because I didn’t see any mention of which division this is for.
