Factor in pin position, distance and your shape
The right is obviously the safe miss. You can be aggressive with a 9-iron or shorter even if the flag is on the left, but you have to be a bit more cautious when there’s water and if you’re hitting a longer club. It also depends how you’re playing. If you’re hitting it well you can aim closer to a tucked pin. Use your shot shape to work the ball towards the flag if yours suits starting the ball at the middle of the green and moving it to the flag.
