Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Yeah, I always play in the rain, man. Stronger winds = more eagle opportunities and you can see the pointer and gridlines much easier.

gg, anyway. Impressed with your work on 3 (that green was designed by a sadist). We should have a decider when we both have an hour to kill and are in the mood. Or get a tournament going, there's got to be a couple of other golf freaks ITT.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I'm in most nights around around 01:00 gmt or so during the week. Weekends whenever.

And oh man I ran above average on 3 in our matches. Made up for it by somehow managing to par 6 in our second match.

Me, 11 under. 12's just a matter of time and the grind. jj, no clue.

ETA my longest drive is 346, as far as I can tell it's tied for second longest overall.

I think only 10 under. Can't seem to put it all together in 1 round.

And wow 346 is pretty sick.

Dunno but I've been stocking up on Adders and Z Types on my second character to sell off later. If you're running into trouble with God moders, try using a tank on them. You still don't kill them but you can pin them down due to the fast reloading time so they can't get up. It's pretty funny just blasting them around the screen watching them scramble to get up and run away. If they're too close just run em over and park on them. The fire trucks hose works too but they're more than likely to blow you up straight away. They really don't like it ime hehe, one guy who I was rag dolling for a while put a $2bn bounty on me to get me off his back lol

Ya -10 for me too. Although I had a frickin par in there as well.

And yeah 346 is nuts. Gonna have to try this always play in the wind strategy.

You golfers have any tips on getting the hole in one trophy?

Hit it in the hole off the tee on a par 3.

But seriously, no. I've hit the stick like 4 times but don't have one yet.

I checked and it's actually 347 You want a 9/10 tailwind of about 12:30 - 1:30 on 7. Bounce the ball twice off the path at the side. The only longer drive I've seen is ~365; I suspect he did the same thing but bounced it three times. In practice having a tailwind like that on 7 means having a comparable headwind on 8 so I wouldn't worry about distracting yourself from a high score - when a long drive is available on 7, no eagle is available on 8.

And yeah, first time I made 10 I had a par - on 9, no less. 9. Gutted even though it was still my best score at the time. Wind is a high-variance strategy, you'll get more higher and more lower scores.

Punch off the tee on 3. It's the only thing I do that I've never seen anyone else do. It only works after your strength (and possibly stamina etc) stats are maxed. 6i in zero wind and adjust accordingly. I've had three HIO's on 3, two of them since switching to a punch off the tee.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Change your shot type from 'Normal' to 'Punch'.

I'm guessing you don't play the golf much.

Ahh thanks. No I don't play much at all. It's pretty obvious I'm not a golfer.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

For whatever it's worth I had a much easier time with getting a hole in one on 6 because the green is so much flatter. For whatever reason I had the best luck using an approach shot with the driver when there's a 3-5 crosswind in either direction.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Definitely much flatter green, but for whatever reason I've had a couple more on 3 than 6. Dunno why.

Punching it on 3 always landed me in the sand or 10' to the right of the hole. I'll try 6 for a while.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

The big fable is that you make a second character and buy ten Adders or whatever and fully mod them to resell after the wipe. Absolutely no way it's going to work.

Still doing it just in case.
