They say that 230 in the fairway is better than 260 in the rough. But that assumes if you’re along hitter you always land in the rough. Usually long hitters have a better swing and are straighter.
Besides, I will take 260 and miss four fairways over being 230 in every fairway all the time.
That said, accuracy is the name of the game for recreational golfers. The pros can hit the ball into impossible places and still make par. We can’t.
If you can hit the ball a long way, good for you. But never sacrifice accuracy trying for more distance. Play with the distance you have and hit the ball straight. That’s the winning combination.
