Gokasho 9-Hole Cup Tournament (November 19th, 2020)
Get ready for another interesting 9-Hole Cup Tournament featuring all the primary holes from Gokasho Bay.
This guide features all the settings and alignments needed to get yourself to the final hole in the tournament. So, without further, take a look at this guide and prepare yourself before the game starts.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #1 (Par 4)
|↩️ Spin||4 Top||5 Top|
|🏐 Ball||Rookie: Marlin / Quasar Pro & Expert: Katana / Kingmaker Master: Kingmaker / Wind|
|🏑 Club(s)||Rookie: Viper/Sniper, Pro & Expert: Sniper, Master: Sniper|
The ideal way to approach this shot is to use a driver that gives a high power. You want to get into the fairway, particularly to the top of the fairway. It would be great if you could get the ball rolling where the fairway curves to the left.
In the second shot, you can aim for bouncing the ball before the rough towards the pin. This will make it really convenient to get towards the pin in the final shot.
Gokasho Bay #2 (Par 3)
|↩️ Spin||3 Top, 2 Right|
|🏐 Ball||Rookie: Marlin/Navigator, Pro & Expert: Kingmaker Wind 5, Master: Kingmaker/Wind 5|
|🏑 Club(s)||Rookie: Backbone/Guardian, Pro & Expert: Goliath/Sniper, Master: Sniper / Quarterback|
This is probably the easiest hole in the tournament. You can hit the ball towards the pin not just on the flat surface but on the rough and the bunker as well.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #3 (Par 5)
You want to play your drive with a Power I Ball (Rookie) or Power II Ball (Pro&Expert). You want to use maximum sidespin to the left as well as maximum front spin to get as far down the fairway as you can to get a proper position for your second shot.
This is important and the distance here is vital to prevent you getting stuck in between clubs!
For your second shot you’re now forced to do a sand bump or a rough bump, unless you did pull off a crazy long drive in your first shot.
It’s not that bad and you have a decent chance to approach the pin and getting your albatross but make sure that you are good with your wind adjustment or you might send your ball either into the water, make it stick in the sand or maybe even just go over the island and sink your shot! No need to adjust any extra for elevation in your second shot.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #4 (Par 3)
|↩️ Spin||3 Down|
|Ball||Rookie: Marlin / Navigator Pro & Expert: Kingmaker / Wind 5 Master: Kingmaker / Wind 5|
|Club(s)||Rookie: Goliath / Saturn Pro & Expert: Sniper / Guardian Master: Sniper / Rocket|
For this hole, we are going to use a club that gives at least 4.5 bars backspin. The shot has to be played downhill. This means that the ball will be affected by wind aggressively.
Aim towards the left of the pin as the green slopes from the left to the right.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #5 (Par 4)
|↩️ Spin||4 Top|
|Ball||Rookie: Marlin / Navigator Pro & Expert: Titan / Berserker Master: Kingmaker / Berserker|
Pro & Expert: Sniper / Cataclysm Master: Sniper / Cataclysm
The perfect way to go about playing this hole is to use the route on the right. Go for a club with 220 yards of Power stats and use a Power 3 ball.
For the second shot, you can go with a club with more distance. Adjust the settings as mentioned in the table and you will be good to go. Do not use any elevation for this shot.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #6 (Par 5)
|↩️ Spin||Max Top||Max Top|
|🏐 Ball||Rookie: Marlin / Titan c Pro & Expert: Titan / Berserker Master: Kingmaker / Berserker|
|🏑 Club(s)||Rookie: Sniper / Viper 6/P Pro & Expert: Sniper / Cataclysm Master: Sniper / Cataclysm||Viper (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie/Pro/Expert)|
This is a fairly difficult Par 5 with lots of bumps and uneven surfaces. For the first shot, you would want to use the driver with as much power as possible to gain maximum distance on the fairway. I would recommend using a Power 1 ball if you have crosswind or headwind.
In your second shot, you can now approach the pin directly with a Sniper. The guideline will help you get closer to the pin easily.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #7 (Par 3)
|↩️ Spin||Max Back|
|🏐 Ball||Rookie: Quasar
Pro & Expert: Katana / Kingmaker Master: Kingmaker / Wind 5
|🏑 Club(s)||Rookie: Backbone / Viper Pro & Expert: Sniper / Goliath Master: Sniper / Quarterback / The Rocke|
Playing this hole becomes a lot easy when you know the adjustments well. Use maximum backspin and try to avoid the bunker. Get the ball to bounce on the fairway. If the adjustments are correct, you could get a Hole-in-one.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #8 (Par 4)
The drive for this hole in the 9-Hole Cup Tournament is fairly easy and can be done with any ball (except the standard one because you need sidespin).
Simply aim to bounce over the bunker and add 4-5 bars of topspin along with all the sidespin to the right that you have and do your perfect shot. This will land you in the best position to approach the pin in your second shot.
For your second shot, you should approach the pin directly and feel secure about the amount of backspin you should use.
When bouncing the fairway you should be fine using around 2-3 bars of backspin (maybe one bar extra in case of heavy tailwind) and adjust the sidespin so you will aim straight for the pin.
This should give you a decent chance for an eagle or at least the secure birdie.
Gokasho Bay – Hole #9 (Par 5)
|↩️ Spin||2-4 Top||4 Down|
|🏐 Ball||Rookie: Marlin / Titan Pro & Expert: Katana / Berserker Master: Kingmaker / Berserker|
|🏑 Club(s)||Rookie: Big Dawg Pro & Expert: Big Dawg / Cataclysm Master: Cataclysm||Rookie: Big Dawg Pro & Expert: Big Dawg / Cataclysm Master: Cataclysm|
With the first shot, you should aim to get as close to the rough as possible. Use 3-5 bars topspin and aim for the ball guideline to be straight down the fairway.
For the 2nd shot, aim for the top right corner. 3rd shot will be with a short iron towards the pin. Use the short iron that you feel the most comfortable with. Don’t use any spin for this shot as it’s easier to control.
