While you can simply use your directional tools and power bar to usually land your shots pretty close to the hole in Mario Golf: Super Rush, true golfing pros will use backspin and topspin to expertly place their balls as close to a hole-in-one as they can.
While it won’t always be necessary to use, topspin and backspin will end up being your saving grace on some of the more difficult courses, or when you have some tougher competition in online multiplayer modes.
Here’s how to use backspin, topspin, and Super Backspin in Mario Golf: Super Rush:
How to Use Backspin and Topspin in Mario Golf: Super Rush
Mario Golf: Super Rush — Backspin
In order to add a backspin to your shots, you’ll simply need to double-tap the B button when setting your power meter before a shot.
When choosing to use backspin, you’ll want to try to land your shot as close to the hole as possible, potentially even a bit over, in order to allow the backward momentum following the shot to slow the ball down. This will be especially useful on greens that are small or around holes that are closer to edges or obstacles.
Mario Golf: Super Rush — Topspin
In order to add a topspin to your shots, you’ll simply need to double-tap the A button when setting your power meter before a shot.
When choosing to use topspin, you’ll want to make sure your shot lands a good distance away from obstacles or the green in order to allow for the extra distance allowed from this type of shot to help you, rather than hurt you. This shot is best utilized when you have a long fairway and want to get the longest shot possible.
And it’s that simple! Make sure to add these techniques to your shots in order to gain as much of a competitive edge as possible, and check out some of our other Mario Golf: Super Rush guides to get ready for the greens.
