Thread: Rabbit/Turtle Tutorial

  1. Default Rabbit/Turtle Tutorial

    Here's a mini-tutorial on the hole I mentioned, Southern Alps #4. Here's what it looks in case you don't remember:




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm using a turtle shot here because the flag is on the right side of the green. So I'm bringing the ball in from right to left. Here is where I aim for the turtle shot:




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a picture of where you have to hit the shot. It's like hitting perfect impact except you're hitting it in the red. For maximum effect you have to hit it right at the end of the red.




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If I'm lucky and I do it correctly I can end up here and have a nice, easy eagle putt.




    Sometimes I end up short, a few times long running completely through the green and too often waiting too long and hitting a skull n' crossbones shot. It takes a lot of practice and you have to know where to aim your shots.

    One more, this time a rabbit instead of a turtle. Notice, I am using Lee here with a normal 302 yd drive and an Impact of LVL 10. To use the turtle or rabbit I am always using max (blue) power shot.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So, here is Nakagawa's hole #2:



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is where I aim:



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is where I make impact, a little less than a full rabbit. Remember, I'm using max power (blue) so the distance is variable.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here's a closeup of exactly where I made contact. Remember, YMMV.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And here's the result. There is some luck here but with no wind or a helping wind this hole easily becomes an eagle hole (especially with a front-left pin position). Like I said, there is some luck, but this was only my second try (and I am a very poor player):



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is something you have to practice to be able to dominate these short courses!

    Good luck out there.

    Study and grow strong!

    Southern Alps 3rd Hole. Another example of a turtle shot with a rockbounce added in. I don't think this shot is possible if the wind is against you. It's also very possible to end up in the trap if you get an unlucky bounce. With a helping wind you can end up on the green a good percentage of the time.
