    Kirby's shot prediction shows you exactly how the current shot will go if you hit it perfectly. Ideally, you want to use this on shorter approach shots where it's easier to fine-tune the process. You don't have to hit the exact shot; if shot prediction shows that you weren't close enough and you adjust, it still counts.

    If you're having trouble, grind it out by playing rounds of City Park's par 3s at Amateur difficulty. Intentionally drive short so that you're still on the fairway, then shoot a pitch shot with max backspin to get as close as you can. This also adds a point towards another achievement.

    JORAXQuick tip - you can play the first hole, use your caddie skill, then exit out once the next hole loads. Rinse/repeat for quick and easy gains on this (and other) achievements. All achievements which include progress on X1 (and here at TA) save the second you do each action once.

    Best way to do this, is to land your shot just off the green on any hole, leaving yourself an easy chip shot. Now once your lined up, confirm using Kirby's shot prediction. If it is lined up to land within 10 feet of the pin, proceed with your shot. Rinse and repeat 4 more times and the achievement is yours.

    This method can also help net you In A Spin achievement and Curveballs...

    Another way to do this is when you are trying for Reiko's Tesla achievement. With your approach shot, use Kirby's prediction, and then activate Reiko's ability. If you hit the approach ok the Tesla affect should pull it close enough.
