At Pro or Championship skill levels, Golf 2001 offers stern
punishment to those who overpower their backswing and then
miss the snap point. The better course of action is to keep
your shot conservative and stay on the fairway.
When going with the Powerstroke swing method, do whatever you
can to slow the speed at which you must move your mouse.
Choosing a longer-hitting club is a good idea, but your best
option is to head for the System Settings area and raise the
Powerstroke Sensitivity. This will elicit more power from a
slower-moving mouse and allow you to keep the speed a bit more
Make use of Golf’s on-course Clubs menu and the shot options
it provides. Punch and flop shots really do help you when
chipping onto severely angled greens or hacking your way over
particularly imposing berms.
As is the case with most golf games that incorporate a mouse
movement swing option, using a ruler or other straight-edge
as a guide for your mouse will help keep your shot from hooking
or slicing. This is blatant cheating, of course, and is
recommended only to those who are already morally bankrupt.
