    I would hit my 4 hybrid. then 8,9 or PW full swing depending on distance from the green. Aim at the middle of the green and hopefully no worse than a 2 putt par. If I hit a wood. It would leave me with a full wedge swing. Don't have an issue with those. Hit my hybrid better than a wood.

    I tried to hit a club that usually leaves me 100-125 yds coming in. P or 9i.

    By accident if I do hit a driver in the middle I probably sh**nk my G to water on right.

    Play conservative. 3 wood off the tee. Knock it OB. Take a drop. Fly the green. Chip it on. 3 putt for a quad. Wonder why I bother playing conservative. Ready to quit golf. Birdie the next hole. Think Im one step closer to Champions Tour. Repeat.

    Driver for me. I don't tend to hit my 3-wood significantly straighter than my driver and I like hitting 3/4 shots with wedges. I'm also significantly more likely to miss left with a full PW, 9, or 8 than I am with a 50 degree or 3/4 wedge.

    How big is the landing area for the driver?

    Your scenario sounds a lot like the holes I play. I usually go hybo off the tee. Just because I am confident with those approach distances.

    For me it would be a 3-wood to a full wedge distance. I consider a "full" wedge to be a comfortably swung wedge (maybe 75-80%), not an "all out" wedge which I avoid.

    Depending on the distance between penalty hazards more than likely I am hitting driver. If not then I am hitting 3 wood. I am best the closer to the green I can get. I spend a lot of time practicing partial wedges and extremely comfortable with those shots. This is all assuming some sort of competitive situation. If I am just out playing for fun it is driver 100% of the time.

    Probably going hybrid off the tee with a 8/9i approach. Im comfortable enough with my miss there to play the longer club and I want to keep it in the short grass.

    Wide enough that a good shot with any club will be fairway found.

    Oh, well in that case let the big dog eat. I'll take the shortest possible approach shot. Glory favors the bold.

    If its wide open in the fairway, my instinct is to pull driver. But I hate partial wedges with a passion so I'd likely go 3W or hybrid to give myself a full swing in.

    This is a great sampling.

    I'd take a full wedge over a 3/4 that requires a bit of a dig.. especially over water.. any day of the week.
