Using the Tee base for control
It can be irritating to have to use the keyboard and mouse during the game, so as far as possible we've tried to make the common actions accessible from the Tee base. For example
To change the aim of your shot - gently sweep the Laserclub beam up or down over the FRONT sensors. The faster you sweep, the further the yellow ball arc moves, left or right, to the new aim direction.
Change club - shine the Laserclub beam on the front top sensor (less loft) or front bottom sensor (more loft). Each time the beam shines on the sensor the club moves up (or down) one.
Fly-by - Shine the beam on the middle 2 sensors at the front and you'll be taken on a 'helicopter ride' around the hole
