Get comfortable using the trackball feature
Although there's no trackball to use on your iPhone or Android, there is a nice, digital version of it that's on your screen. And it works exactly like the real thing, but you just have to swipe down on your screen for your backswing and then swipe up for your follow-through.
In most golf games, you have to be swift with your swings while also making sure you have enough power in them. In Golden Tee Mobile, you have full control over your swing and can stop at the top of it if you feel the right amount of power is there.
This is especially good for short game situations near and around the greens, where you're required to have a bit more touch. There will also be a meter behind the virtual trackball that will give a general idea of how powerful your windup is. If you can get comfortable with the trackball, then you'll be hitting some amazing shots. Just pay attention to the wind when needed.
Putt hard and quickly
This may seem like a small thing that has no impact but in the long run, it certainly does. Putting is not very difficult in Golden Tee Mobile, but it can be tricky to master at times. You will roll the digital trackball back and push forward like normal, but as with short game shots, you'd think touch will be important.
Well, not really. This may sound funny but, the best way to approach putting Is by hitting your putts as hard as you can, giving the ball good speed. This is because the ball will swerve off a bit on the slope if you don't hit hard. It's important that you allow the hole to catch the ball.
In most golf games, a putt hit too hard will pop over the cup but in Golden Tee, even if you hit it extra hard, as long as it connects with the cup, it's likely going in. Use this to your advantage the best you can and hit the heck out of that putt. And if you ever watch Golden Tee esports events, you'll that this is a strategy that the pros utilize as well.
Take advantage of power-ups
One area that Golden Tee was ahead of its time with was its blend of realistic golf and quirky elements such as power-ups. This has become a staple in numerous games including the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series which for a long time also combined the two.
In GT Mobile, you'll have a slew of power-up golf balls you can unlock by playing the game (or by purchasing). Some of these give you the ability to hit the ball further while there are others that allow you to slice through the wind like a cake.
One of the best balls out there to use is the Torpedo, which makes the ball roll further down the fairway on drives. This can get you in a great position on your next shot, and could leave you with a short one to the green.
Another great one of not is the Sniper, which is a ball that is super sticky when it lands. In fact, as soon as it connects with a surface, it will stop on a dime and not move an inch. This ball can bail you out big time because sometimes, you may end up accidentally overshooting the green or things like that.
With the Sniper, it will come to a full stop so if your ball otherwise would roll into the water, lava, etc, this ball will save you from that. It also can leave you with putts that are shorter if you hit good approach shots and that can be major, especially if you're putting well. And at the end of the day, each of these power-up balls are good in their own way, you just need to utilize them effectively.
Use good tee placement
One thing that can get overlooked sometimes is tee placement in Golden Tee Mobile. There three different tees you can earn and those are bronze, silver and yes, golden tees. The golden ones are by far the best, as these give you flexibility.
When using golden tees, you'll be able to freely move it around in the tee box which will tweak how far your ball will go. And you can also choose the height of your tee which will judge your distance too. Select "high" if you want to launch the ball a little further while going with "low" will shorten your shot.
Bronze and silver tees are pretty basic in that, they simply improve your distance slightly. These are value options that are much easier to earn, and can still provide some help. These come in handy if you need that tiny boost off the tee, and if you use one of the power-ups with it, this can allow you to get creative with your shot-making.
