Spinning your shot is a great way to gain some extra distance on a shot or keep your ball from rolling off the green, but it’s not going to do you much good if you need to hit your ball around a tree first. This is where curving comes into play. Here’s everything you need to know about how to curve shots in Mario Golf Super Rush.
How to Curve Shots in Mario Golf Super Rush
Curving your shot is exactly what it sound like. You hit the ball in a way that causes it to turn left, right, up, or down instead of just heading on its regular straight trajectory. You can even combine multiple directions like left and up to alter your shot even further. But before getting too deep into that, let’s take a look at the inputs for curving shots.
Curving Shots Left or Right
Once you’ve set your power on a shot with A or B, then you can use the left stick to adjust the curve of your shot. Just make sure you have the curve set before the line makes it to the top of where you set your shot power.
For curving shots horizontally, it’s fairly straightforward. Move the stick left to curve your shot left or move it right to make the ball move in that direction.
You can also make shot’s curve more dramatic by moving the stick in the same direction multiple times. Make sure you know what you’re doing before attempting this or else your ball will go flying off course.
Curving Shots Up or Down
Unsurprisingly, curving shots up is done by moving the left stick up and downward shots are done by moving the stick down. However, unlike the horizontal curves, curving shots up or down will have a great impact on how far the ball flies.
Curving the ball downward will send it on a lower trajectory that will roll much faster and further than a regular shot. Curving the ball upward will help you get over tall obstacles, but it’ll also noticeably shorten the distance and speed of your shot.
You can also combine horizontal directions with up or down to make a shot curve to the side while sailing over or under an obstacle. Just move your stick towards a horizontal direction to combine two types of curves.
Time needed: 1 minute.
Here’s a quick summary of how to curve shots in Mario Golf Super Rush:
- Press A to start the shot, then A or B
This will set your power and prepare you to curve your shot.
- Move the left stick in the direction you want the ball to curve
Do this before the line hits the top of the power you set. You can curve the ball up, down, left, right, or even combine these types of shots for low or high horizontal curves.
