How to use the motion controls for Mario Golf: Super Rush

It’s not easy to get to grips with the Mario Golf: Super Rush motion controls, but here are some fundamental aspects to keep in mind:

  • The game says to stand face-on to the screen, but standing side-on to the Switch console works.
  • Hold the Joy-Con in your hand so that your thumb is on the SR button, with a face panel (back or buttons side) showing towards the Switch console – if side-on.
  • Use the analogue stick to line the direction of your shot.
  • Bring the on-screen club up to touch the ball so that the character turns opaque, allowing you to swing.
  • When you’re ready to swing, hold down SR, line up with the ball from the top-down view, and then swing back and through the ball.
  • If you want to take a practice shot, hold L or R and go through the motions of taking a regular shot. After swinging the practice shot, hold still at the end of your swing to keep the trajectory on-screen.
  • To curve your shot while using motion controls, tilt the controller left or right after setting the power of the swing.
  • To hit a low shot while using motion controls, swing at a downward angle.
  • To hit a high shot while using motion controls, swing as if scoping upward.
  • When you have a tap-in shot on the green, hold SR and then flick your wrist.

The Mario Golf: Super Rush motion controls and button controls offer players a great range of options on the course, so be sure to try them both out to see which one you find more enjoyable.
