I'm going to disagree with your ingenuous take on fairways hit. It's a bit unrealistic to compare a 105 yard shot with a 235 yard shot. Most of us would take 235, dead center, over 280 in the trees, ponds, and bunkers of the golf course. The 105 yard pop up is the result of a flawed swing, so it shouldn't be compared nor contrasted with a less-accurate, longer drive. If you give me a choice of fairway versus rough, with fairway being 25 yards behind rough, I will take fairway every time. If the rough on the course is non-existent, then the deal is off. It all comes down to the course(s) you play.

Marc is correct. Even on the PGA Tour, the rough usually isn't so formidable that the pros worry much about being in it; they would rather hit the ball 25 yards further and be in the rough than be further back in the fairway (except on U.S. Open type layouts). And, let's face it, on the courses most people play on, the rough isn't that big of a deal.

The only thing I will say, Marc, is that the average player really is most concerned about distance. His problem isn't that he shies away from the driver, but that he doesn't know when to lay up.

Oh, Ron Mon, I thought 105 yards was a decent drive for you. Now you tell us it's the result of a poor swing.

So what if you can't hit your driver perfect all the time. One better question is how is your short game?? That could be one reason people take 4 shots to get on the green...no short game! Or people should go practice more at the range instead out on the course.
