In this Mario Golf: Super Rush guide, we’ll explain how spin works and how you’ll use it.
Spin and shaping shots
Your spin stat determines how much curve you can put into your shots. After you’ve set a shot’s power, you’ll be able to adjust the shot’s spin by moving the left thumbstick (this is kind of like shift, but intentional).
Increasing your spin stat will add sections to your spin gauge. Each of these sections are distinct, and you can change the direction of the shot mid-flight. You’ll even be able to zigzag shots.
Spin also lets you control the vertical trajectory of your shots — but not as much as club selection does. Arrows going forward indicate a higher shot, and arrows pointing back mean a lower shot.
Spin gets powerful fast. It never quite gets to a sudden 90° turn, but it can feel close. Practice with spin, and use it subtly at first — there are three levels of spin indicated by chevrons on your spin gauge. Make your adjustments gently at first before trying hook shots.
