Boosted over the bad stuff
The Rocket (standard)
This setup was made prior to the Rocket nerf in version 3.21.0 on June 19, 2023. Your results may vary on longer par 5 holes.
While Sky Fury may be an early/mid level game changer, The Rocket is unlocked at club level 8 and takes your game to a completely new level. Here are two near identical setups, but the subtle difference between the two bags can be a life saver. Slots 1, 2, and 3 must be arranged as shown for this to work, as The Rocket gets its boost from the clubs to the right and left. Homecoming gives The Rocket a +15 to power when the ball is not on the green and also a +50% terrain resist bonus for bad lies (sand, rough, etc). The Meteor doubles The Rocket’s built-in Boosters stat from 75% to 150%. Commonlaw is best located in either slot 4, particularly if you’ve unlocked Alien Relic Right for a +4 bag accuracy. It gives a +2 to accuracy of all clubs in the bag if it sits in slot 6.
Now, the ‘life saving’ subtle difference between the two setups: The Seeker vs Stormbringer. The Stormbringer is an amazingly accurate wedge that’s perfect for shots within 30 yards or so of the cup. However, The Seeker completely eliminates trees as an obstacle for all clubs in your bag. As wedges, the two clubs are very comparable in how they perform. The Seeker doesn’t really gain anything special as you level up, whereas Stormbringer at higher levels gains a 100% wind resistance that can be especially helpful for easier shots around the green.
Another couple of things to note: The Rocket’s final stats are not indicated by how they appear in the bag. That’s just the base stats. They are determined by where the ball lies (rough, fairway or green) and are then boosted by Homecoming and Meteor. If you’re not able to drive at least 500 yards with your Rocket, you’ve got it set up wrong. Lastly, The Rocket is an extremely versatile club that is effective not only as a driver, but also as an iron that can rescue you from the worst of conditions.
