One good way to help yourself is to find the wind direction on the first hole that will determine the best overall wind directions for the rest of the course.
I guess that some of you already know this information, but still an important one for high level unlimited round(s) tourneys.
For example, best Pebble Beach wind set up is to have a back wind on the first tee at around 1 o'clock. Then the rest of the course will have a majority of back winds for long holes and front wind for short holes, which is clearly the best, with easy reachable par 5s.
Another example, if i remember well, Merion is like 2 o'clock wind on first tee, and so on.
Each course has this ''signature''.
