If a fairway is really tight, I still want to hit driver. Even if the guys in my group are pulling 3-woods or hybrids out of their bags, it makes me happier to know I'm playing aggressively.
That's my nature, so psychologically, it doesn't make sense to fight it. But that doesn't mean I play stupid. When a fairway looks as narrow as this street alley, I choke down on my driver about an inch and set my feet slightly closer together.
This shortens the swing and can help improve accuracy. But because I'm staring down at my driver, my emotion before the shot is definitely not defensive. I'm going for it.
