    Lessons
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Lesson 1 (Beginner)---

    Watch for the wind
    The path of the ball changes according to the wind. Before your shot,
    check the direction and strenght of the wind on the "wind directional
    indicator located on the top right corner of the screen. THe strenght of
    the wind is not known until the first shot of each hole. You estimate
    the wind by throwing a few strands of grass using the R2 button or by
    looking at the flag located on the top left corner of the screen.

    Watch for the lie (placement of the ball)
    The condition of the ground in which the ball leis is much more
    influential than the wind. Obviously, the slope of the ground could
    affect the direction in which the ball leis, but the distance the ball
    travels can also be influenced by the condition of the grass rough.
    Check the zoomed picture of the ball located on the bottom right corner
    of the screen, and think of the effects from the lie on the ball before
    you make your next shot.
    ** You can figure out which direction the ball will travel by examining
    the arrow above the ball
    ** The numbers below the ball indicate the amount of power you're
    actually going to get form your shot. The smaller the number, the
    shorter the distance.

    Lesson 2 (Intermediate) ---

    Adjust the hitting power
    While the player is in the golf stance, press the [] button to switch
    shot modes. There are two types of shot modes: the power mode which
    allows the player to hit the ball with greater power; and the approach
    mode, which allows the player to hit the ball a maximum of 60 yards
    regardless of which club is used. Each of these modes can be used in
    certain situations, but both are essential to acheive a good score.
    ** The power mode lets you hit the ball further than normal, but the
    number of times is limited and the risk of hitting a bad shot increases.
    A number will appear above the P located at the side of the power gauge,
    indicating the remaining power shots left. You can use power mode
    anytime the ball is farther than 60 yards from the pin.
    ** The approach mode give a player more control and limits the total
    distance to 60 yards, regardless of club choice. Only when you are
    within 60 yards of the pin, will you be able to use approach mode.

    Path of the ball and its effect
    By changing the position where the club strikes the ball, you can add
    spin to the ball, which will change the trajectory of balls flight. To
    do this, press the direction buttons after you've selected the power
    during the shot. You can use two types of spin simultaniously by
    pressing in a diagonal direction on the D-Pad. Hit left to make it go
    right, right to go left. Hit down to make the ball fly more and roll
    less, up to make it fly less and roll more.

    Lesson 3 (advanced) ---

    Types of clubs
    Woods (1W-4W)
    Made to make the ball fly low, but travel a farther distance.
    Irons (2I-9I)
    Distances change with club the lower the number, the farther it flies.
    Wedge (PW,SW)
    Short distances and high spin and flight
    Putter
    Used on the green
