Grand Forest Tournament (October 12th, 2020)

Get ready for another fascinating tournament in 2020. The Grand Forest Tournament needs a great deal of knowledge of spin setups and adjustments. In this post, I’ve explained everything in the most detailed format. Take a look and prep yourself for a big win. 🙂

Sequoia Creek Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin Max Right, 2-4 Top; Some Overpower 1-2 Back
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 10%

🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Apocalypse (Pro/Expert) Thorn (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Grizzly (Pro7Expert)

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 7 driveWithout headwind, you want to take this approach playing on the right side.

Depending on your ball and club level, you might also need to use some overpower to not do the rough bump. The rough bump won’t kill you here but it lowers your chance to get the eagle in the end.

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 7 second shotNow it’s time to approach the pin directly and it’s a great chance to get the eagle because you only need a little backspin and can bounce on the fairway spot in front of the green as the distance isn’t that much so you won’t have problems with coming in too hot.

Straight aim for the pin, do a little extra wind adjustment and you’re fine.

Sequoia Creek Hole #2 (Par 3)

🏑 Club(s) Big Dawg (Rookie) Sniper 4+ (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 2Technically you can use the rough bump here but the rough spot to use is very small and a small mistake can give you much trouble.

I recommend not using it and go with the fairway bounce instead and rather go with the birdie than messing up entirely here in the Grand Forest Tournament’s 2nd hole.

Aim straight for the pin and use 4 bars or more backspin to prevent coming in too hot and you have a decent chance for the hole-in-one and a secure birdie if you miss that 🙂

golf clash extreme hills tournament eagle peak hole 6 driveYou want to gain as much distance as possible and a driver like the Big Topper works here extremely well with that load of topspin. Alternatively, use the driver that gives you the most topspin in your bag and use this. It’s about topspin here, not distance.

Additional distance won’t get you over that rough so topspin is the only option to gain a lot of distance here.

golf clash extreme hills tournament eagle peak hole 6 second shotFor the second shot you need to use the rough bump or you won’t make the ball stop enough to approach the pin or stay on the green.

Use some topspin here as well as all the sidespin to the left and aim directly for the pin. You will roll on the fairway and this gives you the best option to get a eagle/albatross here in this Par 5 in the Grand Forest Tournament.

Eagle Peak Hole #4 (Par 3)

Club To Use: Backbone, Goliath or Sniper

The left line is the standard play for this hole in the Grand Forest Tournament unless you have strong headwind, then you can pick the right line.

Normally you bounce it over the bunker in the left line but it will be very hard to get a hole-in-one as the fairway os not perfectly even.

For the right line you will need a lot of backspin and also headwind to aim directly for the pin and not exceed that point and even leave the green, but no risk no gain, right? 😉

🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Backbone (Rookie), Grizzly (Pro/Expert)

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 5 driveThe drive can be tricky here as you need to play through the trees, which can be challenging at times. But that is your best option, otherwise you need to play around them and you will loose at least one shot here.

When using enough sidespin, you can see that you can get through the trees and gain a lot fo distance rather than laying up short here, aim precisely and you don’t need to adjust any extra for the wind!

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 5 second shotIn your second shot you can now approach the pin directly by bouncing on the fairway and aiming straight for the pin with some backspin to slow down enough to prevent coming in too hot.

Nothing special here and a good chance to get your eagle.

Sequoia Creek Hole #6 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 2-3 Right; 3-4 Top Max Right; 3 Top; Max Curl Right
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 10%
🏐 Ball Titan (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie/Pro/Expert) Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert), Cataclysm (Pro/Expert)

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 6 driveThe tricky thing about this Par 5 in the Grand Forest Tournament is that the trees will cover the right side of the green so you need to gain enough distance with your drive to pass them by and get a clean path towards the green with your second shot.

The drive is a clean perfect shot at maximum distance with some sidespin and some topspin (don’t go too hard on the topspin, you don’t want to leave the fairway!)

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 6 second shotThe second shot now requires curl to get you close to the green but you have a clean fairway part where you can bounce so missing by a little won’t break your shot, unless you really mess up 😉

Use some topspin and and maximum sidespin to the right as well as maximum curl to the right and you will get close to the green and finish this Par 5 with an eagle.

🏐 Ball Katana (Rookie/Pro/Expert)
🏑 Club(s) Backbone (Rookie) Big Dawg (Pro/Expert)

golf clash extreme hills tournament eagle peak hole 2This Par 3 here can be tricky and you shouldn’t get your hopes for an easy hole-in-one up too much.

You need to bounce over the bunker and use all the sidespin possible to get the ball into the direction of the pin while bouncing a second time on the fairway before the green.

This is the most consistent way to actually get the right amount of speed and with some luck you get the hole-in-one but you have the birdie here secured.

Eagle Peak Hole #8 (Par 4)

Eagle Peak Hole #8 (Par 4)

Picking the right or the left line is the normal way how you want to play this hole in the Grand Forest Tournament, depending on the wind and what side suits you best.

Both ways are played similar where you try to get as far on the fairway as possible and then directly go for the green in the second hit paired with backspin to head for the eagle or get at least a birdie.

Eagle Peak Hole #8

The red line is more aggressive and can get you directly on the green – but you need solid tailwind  to make that happen. Bounce right next to the bunker and then add enough sidepsin and top spin to make it on the green. You very likely will bounce it on the rough so don’t hestitate using plenty topspin to bounce it far enough.

 

Sequoia Creek Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
↩️ Spin 1-2 Back; 2 Right Max Top + Max Overpower
⛳️ Overadjust 20% 0%

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 2 driveGo with the drive on the left side, it is easier to play because you don’t have to play to the right later.

You need to use some backspin here because the fairway slopes down a lot and this will get you into the rough if you don’t slow down you ball enough. A little sidespin used as well and you have a great spot for your second shot.

golf clash redwood cup tournament text guide sequioa creek hole 3 second shotYou second shot is all about distance, so you the club that will do that along with a ball with good Power. Use also all topspin and max distance and all you need to do is to get to the green.

The difficult thing here is that you also need max overpower (except you have straight tailwind, than only 50% overpower). The landing spot is large so even missing the perfect shot is not a tragedy here and you have a nice chance to get an eagle in the final hole in the Grand Forest Tournament.

Good luck in the Tournament 🙂

  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.
