Sometimes contests appear during a circuit :
1) The closest to the pin contest : you have to hit the ball as close as possible to the hole in one hit. If the ball gets closer to the pin than the previous record, you will earn a bonus hole.
2) The longest driving contest : you have to shoot the ball as far as possible in one hit. If you exceed the previous record, you will earn a bonus hole.
The order from the best to the worst performance is :
Albatros (3 hits less than for a Par)
Eagle (2 hits less than for a Par)
Birdie (1 hit less than for a Par)
Par (the average level)
Bogey (1 hit more than for a Par)
Double Bogey (2 hits more than for a Par)
Triple Bogey (3 hits more than for a Par)
If you miss the attempt to make a Triple Bogey, you will have to give up the hole and will suffer an additional penalty.
If the ball arrives out of bound or in the water, you will be penalized one stroke.
You CAN apply spin to the ball, forward or back. Neo Turf Masters requires two taps on the keypad to strike the ball. The first tap determines power, the second tap determines loft. After the first tap and before the second, push up or down on the joystick. You can get a wicked backspin on the ball. You can also forward spin through the wind, or land short and roll nicely up a hill.
