"Studying a hole from the pin back to the tee gives you a great feel for how it should be played – and a focus on strategy, not swing technique. Looking back down the hole from behind the green, it quickly becomes clear which part of the fairway you're meant to approach the hole from. That in turn can tell you which side of the tee box you should use and what club to hit."
