First you got to pick your starting character King Clubber and go hit the grass and sink some golf balls. It will feel like a race against the other three players but most of the time it is not.. unless you want a bonus. Just align your shots (along with coins for extra money) and then swing when the meter is lined up in the 100% marks. After each round you will have the opportunity to buy more items like drivers, irons, putters, powerups etc etc. Start off by getting the stuff that you need most: drivers, putters, etc because later on you can blow money on making your golfer look pro.
