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

Ryder Cup Tournament (September 24th, 2020)

Get ready for yet another tournament coming your way. It’s the much-awaited Ryder Cup Tournament. With a total of 9 holes, the course is set in the beautiful country side of the English South Coast.

White Cliffs – Hole #1 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
Spin 3 bars top, 5 bars right
Overadjust 20 % 20%
Ball Katana, Kingmaker
Club(s) The Quarterback (Rookie); The Thorn (Pro/Expert) any

hole 1

Here we have a tricky hole in the Ryders Cup Tournament. Use Quarterback to reach the desired distance. It would be wise to use at least three topspin bars to the right and get as close to the pin as possible.

I strongly recommend using a Katana or Kingmaker ball to get to the right distance. If you are using a high-end club, use minimum curl and maximum accuracy to get the shot right.

For the second shot, you can use the elevation as required by the placement. The closer the ball gets to the pin, the lesser the elevation. It will help you get the distance that you missed in the drive.

White Cliffs – Hole #2 (Par 3)

Spin 2 Top, 4.5 Left
Overadjust 25 %
Ball Quasar
Club(s) The Sniper (Rookie); The Sniper (Pro/Expert)

hole 2

For Hole 2, the ideal way to get close to the pin is to use topspin. For the adjustment, you can use the maximum distance and 25% overadjustment. You could also use backspin. However, you have to make sure that you have at least 5 to 6 parts of backspin.

I also suggest you play with a power 1 ball and not go after any heavy ball. As for the club, you can go with ‘The Sniper’. The higher level of Sniper you have, the better it is for your game. It will help you aim directly at the pin and get the best shot.


White Cliffs – Hole #3 (Par 5)

Drive Second Shot
Spin 2.5 Bars Top & maximum to the left 2 Bar Top & 2.5 Left
Overadjust 10 % 0%
Ball Malin (Rookie) | Quasar (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) The Sniper (Rookie); The Sniper (Pro/Expert) The Sniper (Rookie); The Sniper (Pro/Expert)

hole 3The objective of the first shot is to reach as close to the pin as possible. With the Marlin ball and two and half bar topspin combined with maximum sidespin, you can actually get a nice angle to reach closer to the pin for the second shot.


hole 3 shot2


For the second shot, play it without elevation. Use 2 bars top right and 2.5 on the left to get the perfect position. If all goes well, you will find a convenient position to putt. Make sure to choose the right club and ball. It helps a lot.

White Cliffs – Hole #4 (Par 3)

Spin Maximum Backspin, 3 Right
Overadjust 40%
Ball  Katana (Rookie), Katana (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) The Gaurdian (Rookie), Sniper (Rookie/Pro)

hole 4

You will need maximum backspin and 2-3 bars sidespin on the right to bring the ball close to the pin. The hole is downhill and the ball will be affected mid-air by the wind. Play maximum distance to get the best position for the putt.
Getting the aim right is a major factor in this case. The bounce on the fairway should be away from the bunker else you will lose the shot. If you’re lucky, you could even get a hole-in-one.

White Cliffs – Hole #5 (Par 5)

Drive Second Shot
Spin 4.5 Bars on Top, 2 on Left  6 Bars on Top, 2 on Left
Overadjust 0% 0% (Rookie)
Ball Titan (Rookie), Titan (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) The Big Dawg (Rookie/Pro/Expert)  –

hole 5

This is one of the toughest holes in the Ryder Cup Tournament. You will want to use at least four and a half bars of topspin. Avoid any elevation for this shot.


hole 5 shot 2

The second shot is comparatively difficult. Add 6 bars on topspin and 2 bars on the left sidespin. This could help you get closer to green. If you can come this far without any hassle, you can have a fair chance of making it right. Just make sure to select the right ball and club.

White Cliffs – Hole #6 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
Spin 4.5 Top & 5 Right Backspin 3 Bars
Overadjust 20 % 10%
Ball Marlin (Rookie), Kingmaker (Pro, Expert)
Club(s) Extra Mile (Rookie), Extra Mile (Pro/Expert) The Goliath (Rookie), The Thorn (Pro/Expert)

hole 6This one is the most challenging Par 4 in the Ryder Cup Tournament. The objective of the drive should be to get the ball as far down as possible. On the right side, you want to use four and a half bars of sidespin for your drive.


hole 6 shot 2When it comes to choosing the right club, use Marlin as it gives you the convenience of using the sidespin to the left and sets you in a better position for the second shot.

For the second shot, you will want to use all the sidespin that you have. If all goes well, you can have a very good chance for an eagle with this shot.


White Cliffs – Hole #7 (Par 3)

Spin 1 Top & 2.5 Side Spin on the Right
Overadjust 30%
Ball Quasar (Rookie) , Kingmaker (Pro/Expert)
Club(s) The Sniper(Rookie & Pro)

hole 7This is a considerably easy hole & you can get closer to the pin. It is recommended that you do not use any curl. There are a lot of bouncy spots in the fairway. Dont attempt anything fancy here, and you are good to go.



White Cliffs – Hole #8 (Par 4)

Drive 2nd Shot
Spin 2.5 Bar Backspin
Overadjust 10% 0%
Ball Marlin (Rookie & Pro)
Club(s) The Sniper(Rookie & Pro) Thorn or Hornet (Rookie/Pro/Expert)

hole 8The more backspin, the more control you will have. If you have more backspin, you can move further up in the fairway which will make it easier for you to position for a better shot.


hole 8 shot 2For the second shot, you must be prepared for a upwill bounce. The second bounce will probably be on the green and you will have to keep that in mind while playing the shot.


White Cliffs – Hole #9 (Par 5)

Drive 2nd Shot
Spin 2.5 Bars Backspin, 5 Sidespin on the right 1 Bars Backspin, 5 Sidespin on the right

Club(s) The Big Dawg (Rookie & Pro) The Big Dawg (Rookie), The Cataclysm (Pro)

hole 9The drive is really important at this hole. You need to focus on positioning yourself at the drive to be able to get a good second shot. Aim the ball to reach the center of the island. Be careful not to get it into the bunker.

hole 9 shot 2


In the second shot, use as much sidespin to the right and also a little backspin.Get the direction right and you could get an albatross in the Ryder Cup 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?

  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.
