During "Chapter 3: Power Struggle", as part of the main storyline you will talk to one of your kids about an issue he's having, which after some talking here and there, you'll go to leave the orphanage and your neighbour will talk to you, informing you of a important city member who likes to play golf, and how you could bump into him there at some point.

This is the first place in the game you're able to play golf, and competitively too so it will be your first chance at grabbing this trophy, which is actually fairly easy to get as I obtained it on my first hole without realising this was a trophy.

Make sure the club you are using is the highest yard-shooting club, you can see the yards it can shoot in the bottom right with "no.W no.Y", so switch inbetween clubs (up and down on the right stick) until you get the one that's the highest. Now that you have it. Press the cn_T button to make sure you're doing the best hit, not the short one.

Once you're all prepared, press the cn_X button AND KEEP YOUR FINGER ON IT just before it reaches the very top of the bar (or otherwise it won't work and you'll just be forced to re-try), then let go the highest moment you can, and as soon as the second arrow reaches back down where both the arrows started (You'll see a small grey arrow down there), hit the cn_X button. Kazame Kiryu will then make a powerful hit that hopefully isn't out of bounds. As the shot is ongoing, at the bottom of the screen it'll say in big yellow text "Flight soandso Yards", so you can see how close/far you are from achieving the trophy with your current set-up.

Because I found this first hole to be the easiest for this trophy due to the length of it, if you don't make the requirement for the trophy, it will ask you "You can try this shot if you like. Retry?" Feel free to retry as many times as you could, I personally retried 4-5 times trying to get a good shot so I could show off, which I then popped the trophy, so retrying won't hinder your chances.

Completing this quest will also unlock the ability for you to use the golf course as you please, if you wish to do it another time.

Sorry for the text-wall, good luck!
