Every here and than the Golden Shot event hosts in Golf Clash and you can win some nice prizes there – the problem is, you onle have one free shot and from there on you will need to pay real money for additional shots.
Even though the prizes are nice, you can potentially miss a shot and throw money out of the window so I thought I will write you this guide to help you out making the most out of the Golden Shot (no matter if you pay for additinal takes or you only use your one free hit).
Golden Shot October 7th, 2019
Below you will find some more general tips to help you out with getting the Golden Shot right but I also have here some tips for the current Golden Shots (that I update with every Golden Shot as well).
Golden Shot Guide (Normal) – Gokashu Bay
The medium Golden Shot in Gokashu Bay is pretty easy because everything is flat here and it’s almost impossible to miss the rings – but we want to get as close as we can, right? 😉
Please set your landing point so that the ball guide line with the Golden Long Iron aims directly for the pin like shown in the image – do not add any spin before you have set that point!
In addition to that you also use 3.5 bars of backspin to prevent the ball from coming in too hot and add 1.5 bars of sidespin if you have straight wind with little or no crosswinds. If you have wind from the side, you want to add 0.5-1 bar of sidespin to counter the wind, depending how strong it is.
And that’s it 🙂
Golden Shot (Hard) – The Milano
We’re having this in The Milano and you might from last weeks tourmanet how hard it can be – I’m actually glad that they picked this hole for the Golden Shot because I think it’s easier than the other Par 3 in The Milano.
You want to play this one with the Long Iron and always bounce on the middle of that small island, like shown in the image – adjusting to the wind is 1.66 wind per ring (means, if you have a wind of 5.0 you need to adjust 3 rings in the opposite direction.
Now the next thing is that you need to adjust with spin to the wind as well to not come in too hot. If you’re coming in too hot and don’t hit the pin you will go over the green.
When it comes to spin, you have a basic spin of 3.5 bars to the back when there’s no head or tailwind. You can adjust the sidespin according to the ball guide so it aims to the pin.
If you have headwind or tailwind you want to add or reduce your backspin – if it’s straight tailwind or straight headwind you wan to add/reduce by 0.5 to 1 bar of backspin and if it’s paired with wind form the side you want to use 0.5 bars.
Good luck with your Golden Shot! 🙂
What’s The Golden Shot All About
Basically you will have to prove that you’re able to land a great shot with just a little preparation on point, so you have to use clubs that you normally won’t use (the Golden Clubs) and you will have to fight some rough conditions with win between 5 and 8.
Still, landing here is possible with the right strategy and this is what I’m going to show you now 🙂
Prepare For The Golden Shot
In my opinion success in the Golden Shot is pretty much staying focused and calm while knowing what you do.
Remember, you only have 30 seconds to execute your shot so you don’t want to waste much time and do everything you need to do BEFORE you start the Golden Shot!
When looking at your clubs, you will very likely want to use the Golden Long Iron for the shot and you have the stats there to prepare your shot – you don’t know the exact conditions but you know that you will have to counter some heavy wind and that’s the first step.
To help you out here’s already how many rings you will need to adjust
|Club||Ring(s) Per 1.0 Wind To Move|
|Golden Short Iron||0.7|
|Golden Long Iron||0.6|
*Please mind I rounded these numbers for easier use*
This table means, if you use the Long Iron and have wind force 6.0, you will need to move your marker 6*0.6=3.6 rings.
If you don’t know how adjusting the wind works, please refer to my wind chart guide that will tell you how to adjust any wind here.
So, having that number in mind is helping a lot because you only need to multiply that with the wind you will have to land the ball in the rings for your Golden Chest.
Execute The Golden Shot
Now you want to be quick! You want to adjust the wind as fast as possible because you will need to hit the perfect shot to score and you really don’t want to need to hurry at that point.
Use the above number to adjust the rings (multiply it with the wind strength and move your rings against the direction of the wind.
Also, I always add some backspin (1 bar) to my ball before hitting, this help landing it calm in the flat.
Now it’s time to hit the ball…
I prefer the method where I get into the rhytm of the ticker (I described it here more in detail here) but it’s up to you – in the end try to do your best to actually hit the perfect shot, I can’t say that often enough.
Pay For More Shots?
Well, rewards are very nice but in the end they’re random like any other chest is so I personally don’t like to spend any real-world dineros for some additinal shots (also because one shot costs about one dollar) – I stick to my free shot.
Also don’t think it gets easier when you do multiple shots… the wind will change so you can’t “trial and error” yourself to the best chest, you will need to do all of this over and over again with each shot and potentially even miss it and flushed money down the toilet 😉
