How to Use Bowser Jr.

Watch Out for Stamina Stat

Bowser Jr. is quite decent in terms of drive, speed, and accuracy. The stats aren't too impressive, but they should suffice in all modes. You would need to watch out for Bowser Jr.'s low Stamina stat in Speed Golf and Battle Golf though, as his stamina depletes fairly quickly, which diminishes use of the Special Dash.

Spin Specialty Not For Beginners

How to Use Bowser Jr Mario Golf

Bowser Jr. has a high Spin stat (that goes up to 9 with the Super Star Club Set) which is more effectively utilized in Standard Golf - Stroke Play, where you have more time to work on curve shots.

However, high Spin generally demands that a player be experienced in curve shots in order for it to be effectively utilized. It's also not recommended to use motion controls while using Bowser Jr., as motion controls diminish the accuracy of adding spin.

Effective Special Dash Uses

Bowser Jr Bullet Bill Special Dash
Bowser Jr.'s Special Dash is easy to aim, as you merely run over other players with Bullet Bill. Given that Bullet Bill floats above ground, you can also use the Special Dash to shoot over short bodies of water.

Use Special Shot to Conceal Important Areas from HUD

Bowser Jr Special Shot Smoke
Bowser Jr.'s Special Shot may seem underwhelming at first, as the ball merely creates a smokescreen upon impact. However, it can be used to conceal important areas from unwitting opponents.

Hide Players' Balls

Particularly, during Speed Golf and Battle Golf, you can use the smokescreen to hide a player's ball from them, since many players are likely to depend on the HUD (heads-up display) to identify where their ball has landed. They'll be caught off-guard when their ball icon suddenly disappears from the screen.

Conceal the Hole

Alternatively, you can create a smokescreen in the area near the hole in order to increase the difficulty of putting for opponents.
