golf clash highlands tournament text guides greenoch point hole 2 driveI’m not a huge fan to use the aggressive line here powering all through the green with the drive, because it’s risky and you don’t need to do that right here in the second hole of the Winter Major Tournament.

Rather go for the rough bounce on the fairway island and you’re in a good position to have a decent chance to still go for the eagle here with a good amount of topspin and sidespin to the right.

There’s no need to add any additional spin when you play it like that but make sure to adjust the wind right, you still need to adjust some extra here, even though you play in medium distance.

golf clash highlands tournament text guides greenoch point hole 7This is a really weird Par 3 in the Winter Major Tournament, especially because of the distance and also the way to play it (yes, you need a driver here).

The hole-in-one is actually impossible here, period. You need to slice around the slope to get on the green and this will get you somewhere near the pin to get your birdie, but that’s it. Use a little topspin and sidespin to the right and adjust the wind very carefully here, every inch can change the direction of your ball significantly.

Rookie/Pro/Expert: This is also one of the trickier holes in the Winter Major Tournament and absolutely no hole you can assume you get an albatross and a birdie is rather what you will get in most cases.

No matter what division, you will always play on the left side because the right side is making your second shot so hard that it’s not worth even trying.

In your drive you want to bounce over the rough and prevent getting into the rough by adding some topspin, about 3-4 bars, and 3+ bars of sidespin to the right. It’s important to have a Power III ball for your second hit.

In your second hit, you will bounce over the rough and get on the green and also add about 2-3 bars of topspin along with all the sidespin to the right that you can get. You can add some curl but in my opinion, this is not worth the risk and a secure eagle is better than messing up when you did the drive right.

Do not bounce over the bunker here and rather use maximum sidespin to the left and play it like shown in the image by using the right fairway spot.

It’s actually quite tricky to get the hole-in-one here in the Winter Major Tournament with this Par 3 so rather play it safe than sorry and go for the birdie here.

Don’t forget that you need to add 10% extra for playing downhill with your wind adjustment or you might easily come too short.

golf clash community tournament 2020 text guide hole 6 driveYou can reach the green in two shots in this hole in the Winter Major Tournament and you will need to make some good distance with your drive so use the driver with the highest distance here.

Don’t do too much frontspin and use some sidespin if there’s wind from the side to prevent leaving the fairway. This is essential to reach for the green in your second shot. Also mind adding 10% to wind adjustment.

golf clash community tournament 2020 text guide hole 6 second shotThe second shot will be a rough bounce and you also need to reduce wind adjustment by 20% because you play massively uphill here. I’d add about 1 bar of backspin to not come in too hot but also adding no spin will get you on the green and stay there. Still, you might be approaching the pin directly so the backspin is useful here.

Here the wind situation will decide what line you will play.

Headwind (Blue Line): The red line is easier when approaching the pin but with headwind you’re forced to play your drive on the left side.

Use all the tospin you have for the drive combined with all the sidespin to the right that you have.

For your second hit you want to do a fairway bump right after the bunker and use all the backspin and sidespin to the right you have to make the ball slope towards the pin (see in the image). This is a classical birdie situation and the best you can do if you start off with headwind.

All Other (Red Line): Use 2-3 bars of topspin paired with 2-3 bars of sidespin to the right for your drive to make your ball bounce over the bunker. Don’t use more topspin or you risk rolling into the rough! You also need to overpower your shot SLIGHTLY.

From here you have a great possibility to approach the pin directly like you can see in the image above with 2-3 bars of backspin to prevent coming in too hot and add like 2-3 bars of sidespin to the right as well.

golf clash highlands tournament text guides greenoch point hole 5 To be honest, getting a hole-in-one here is extremely lucky as you will slope around the corner and then down towards the pin.

Still, using the correct wind adjustment plus position can get you close to the pin and make sure you will get that birdie. Still a difficult hole.

Rookie/Pro/Expert: This is actually a really straightforward hole and it doesn’t require a really fancy ball, all you need is one that has some sidespin.

You want to bounce the ball over the bunker and add at least 3-4 bars of topspin and 2-3 bars of sidespin (more is also okay) to the right as possible to reach the green. It’s hard to get a hole-in-one here but if you make it on the green with your drive you will be easily two below par and at a good standing in the tournament. If you have strong headwind you should play it on the right side and make it on the fairway next to the bunker and then go for the green.

golf clash highlands tournament text guides greenoch point hole 6 driveI also recommend you to go on the left side here, although the right side looks tempting. You need to cut that corner and use half a ball of curl here as well, combined with some topspin and sidespin to the right.

Nothing fancy, simply do your wind adjustment with a little extra and stay away from that rough and you will have a decent Par 5 here in the Winter Major Tournament.

golf clash highlands tournament text guides greenoch point hole 6 second shotThe second shot is the make-or-break shot here and you can make it on the green or close to it when you play it right, but you need to get around those trees.

Play with maximum distance of your wood club between the bunker and the trees and use all the curl to the right you have and you will get the ball on the green and into a good spot for the eagle. The albatross here is nearly impossible, so rather play it safe than sorry!

  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.
