This week saw Rory lift the claret jug in great style. This raised remarks from Tiger that Rory has a very aggressive game plan.
These days you have to be aggressive to win but it has to suit the task in hand. From a course management point of view you need to pick your battles and also know your capabilities. If you believe you have a 70% success rate at pulling the shot off then you should go for it.
Apart from that basic rule, I would always recommend using data collected from practice to help make decisions. For example what is your average footage fro the target you hit the ball from a certain yardage. Then if a flag is tucked away in a small section of the green you can make a accurate decision on weather it is worth going at the flag or playing to the center of the green.
So with that I mind, make your practice more productive and collect data when in performance mode.
