    In the lower right hand corner of the game you'll see a ball with a green dot.

    Kinda looks like this.  This is normal spin. Your ball has an average trajectory and average roll.

    Grab the green dot and move it upwards to impart topspin.  Consequently, your ball will have a lower trajectory, will fly less and roll more if the ground is flat.  Good in some situations, and not so good in others.

    Grab the green dot and move it downwards to impart backspin.  Your ball will have a higher trajectory, will fly more and roll less if the ground is flat.

    Different shots will require varying degrees of topspin and backspin, but that part you gotta figure out on your own. :)

    Once again, with the club set that we all currently have, spin is not as pronounced as you may think, or want it to be.  Cheap clubs=low spin control, inaccurate and short!  Stay tuned for the club update!

     I see it work with the beginner set.  And use it on every shot.  Now the cool thing will be when you can put side spin on the ball (fade/draw).  Then the course will get interesting.

     Don't get me wrong... It is there, and it does work.... but it should be more pronounced when the new clubs arrive.

     I have used it many times.  A lot of times, the ball just one-hops and stops.  This has kept that little white ball closer to the pin for better birdie opportunities.

    I use it all the time. Took 9 points off my average. Works on this new set, but on the old set of clubs I didn't know about it. Try it. It lets you hit harder and allows you to stop the ball on the green way closer to the hole.
