SET UP AN AP­PROACH FROM ABOVE

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

Driv­ing the ball in the fair­way is es­sen­tial to tak­ing ad­van­tage of a hole like this. The hole is rel­a­tively flat from the tee box to this land­ing area, but then the fair­way slopes dra­mat­i­cally down to the green. Your op­por­tu­nity to ex­ploit the gra­di­ent is with the se­cond shot. You’ll need a clean lie to hit a tow­er­ing long ap­proach. The longer a fair­way-wood or lon­g­iron shot can hang in the air, the greater the dis­tance boost you get from the downs­lope.
