Practice Makes Perfect in Road to the Masters

The easiest swing to execute is a long swing, where timing is the key factor. Like in real life, it is in Road to the Masters; the closer you get to the greens, the more complex the game becomes when using your clubs.

Although there are many hard shots to pull off in the game, it doesn’t mean they are impossible to execute cleanly over time. The only way to get familiar with the game’s mechanics is to practice and do so as often as possible.

There are many ways to practice in the game, and if you’re struggling with parts of your short game, long game, or both, you should do the challenges before getting into any tournaments or big events.

Challenges are the best way to learn and get rewarded while learning, making it worthwhile. There are challenges for every shot and game situation, and most importantly, you can restart as many times as you would like to get all three stars — getting all three stars should be standard procedure.

Although there are 20 shot types listed, EA states there are about 1300 shot variations in the game, so you’re not short of options and solutions.
