Cheats for Hot Shots Golf Open Tee

Free Power Shots

  • PSP
  • Hint

This trick allows you to get a free power shot: when doing a power shot, set the power and impact as you normally would, but the moment the club hits the ball (after setting the shot impact), press triangle. If this is timed perfectly, the power shot you are using won't decrease the number of power shots remaining. This does not affect the shot at all, and it doesn't have any negative consequences if done incorrectly. This must be used during a power shot or it won't work.
