When you should have a go with your driver off the deck.

When driv­ers were the size of to­day’s fair­way woods, us­ing them from the fair­way was a much more favoured op­tion. But as heads have ex­panded, driver-of-the-deck has be­come far less com­mon. How­ever, in cer­tain cir­cum­stances it can still be an ef­fec­tive weapon, one that al­lows you to use fair­way firm­ness and cheat head­winds. The first step is to over­come any neg­a­tive psy­chol­ogy thrown up by the sight of the small ball against that big head; the sec­ond is to use your grey mat­ter to make sure the shot is ac­tu­ally on. Use th­ese five ques­tions to help you de­cide.
