How to Use Bowser

Bowser Power Strength

At 228 base power, Bowser has strongest drive in the game without the huge-drop off in Control or Speed stats. He's the best pick for players focused on a raw power playstyle in all game modes.

Mind Bowser's Larger Hitbox

Being a bulky character, Bowser has a larger hitbox than most Mario Golf characters, which will increase the likelihood of him getting hit by Special Dashes and may even cause him to get stuck in some tight terrain formations.

Special Dash Makes Use of Lower Speed

Bowser has a lower Speed than most characters, but his easily controllable Special Shot makes up for it. Bowser will leap forward then pound the ground, knocking off players he lands on. He then will slide forward breathing a circle of fire, which is useful to knock off opponents even further away.

It's a very easy Special Dash to aim at opponents and, with Bowser's high Stamina, it can be used up to twice consecutively.

Bowser Outfit in Mario Golf: Super Rush

In Mario Golf: Super Rush, Bowser sports a golf outfit for the first time in the series. He may be an actual dad, but his outfit goes for a more punk rock aesthetic, with flames, spikes, and the overall black and red color scheme. It's not a surprising look for Bowser, given the way the Bowser Highlands course is designed.
