    First hole on the Long Pond Par 3 Course. My secret is using the 8 iron, bring the shot sculptor up with the LT and moving the white line up to the top of the "A". Course never seems to have more than 1 or 2 MPH winds so not a lot of correction needed. If you miss the shot Restart. Took probably 30 swings to get it.

    SilentBobsTagFinally got it after maybe 150-200 tries. Now that the wind is changing each shot it has really come down to luck. There were so many close shots.

    qManballinI can't imagine surgeons even getting this right 100% of the time... So my biggest issue was getting consistent swings. Slightly left or right will just ruin your shot. What I found most consistent is using "the claw" method which is controlling the right stick with both your thumb and pointer.

    My second issue was getting the trajectory and adjusting for wind. Using the D pad, I felt it was more consistent for these areas and counting the number of clicks for the left/right of the angle and shot modifications.

    Edit: Finally got this achievement 7+ months later after getting somewhat fed up with RNGeezus blowing the ball all over the course or my inability to hit the ball straight everytime.

    I got this on the 1st hole of the official course Long Pond Par 3. There is no short cut way to do this, and it will involve a lot of trial and error, but with patience you should be fine.

    First up, club selection and power. The 8 iron you are given is fine, but you need to take a bit of power off of it. The best way to do this is hold LT and move the white line up so it is in the middle of the two red lines. You then need to make sure you always hit the 8 iron at 100%, or you wont reach.

    Next to aim you need to adjust for wind. Whilst this seems to vary every time you start, it always seems identical when you restart the course. So if you fail (which you will!), just hit start and restart the course.

    The key i found was using the background to mark your aiming. I had a 5mph wind left to right, and used the trees behind the green to mark where aimed, and then from there adjusted my aim based on whether my ball was left or right of the pin.

    What makes this bit tricky is that the way you swing will affect this. So if you swing dead straight and the ball ends up just left of the pin, but the next swing you put on it is a bit ropey and was right a bit, you will find your shot ends up in a different spot. So via trial and error you need to roughly find the right aiming location, based on the wind, and then make sure that your swing is consistent. Again, i found with constant repitition, I got there in the end.

    Lastly, you want the ball to land about 1 yard to the left of the hole, for as it rolls up towards the pin, it will drift right a bit.

    Good luck, and just keep going. It took me about 45 mins to get this, and god knows how many retries!!

    The same hole as the others... hole 1 at the Long Pond Par 3 course.

    So it appears the wind setting can change from player to player... in my case 11mph in the Northerly direction.

    The 8 iron is too long... the 9 iron is still too long unless you modify your shot, hold the left trigger and (for me the top red line was listed as 86%) move it up just a few lines so it's less than halfway between the two red lines.

    Aim wise there are two white trunked trees to the left of the hole to use when you line up, its not really the sort of shot to give a definite aim spot as this can be rendered pointless if you get any shape on the shot.

    Essentially this set up should land the ball at the front of the green and bounce up and run onwards into the hole.

    Took me maybe 15 attempts.
