Yeah, for me on a good day, everything is a push and my misses just don't draw enough or at all. So I basically aim towards the left side of the fairway or green (assuming there isn't something over there like OB or hazard, in which case, I'll cheat away from it).
I've seen Erik or somebody else reference a quote from Kenny Perry where he says something along the lines of "when the hole is on the right side of the green, I will aim for the center" and then the follow up question is "what do you do when the pin is on the left side of the green?" And he says, "I make birdie." Obviously, I rarely make birdie no matter where the pins are located, but I still follow the logic. There is no reason to try and get cute when it goes against what you know how to do. If you play a draw and try to hit a cut to the right pin, you're risking a bad score because a cut isn't your go-to shot. If you try to play a draw to a pin on the right, you're risking a bad score because now you're bringing in the bunker/rough/what have you off the right side of the green.
And, yes, I will hit things other than push-draw when the lie dictates, but I'm not "working" the ball. I'm just taking my normal swing and aiming such that I take into account what I think the lie is going to cause it to do. If the ball is above my feet, I'll aim further right, below and I'll aim further left. That's it.
You are right the smart safe play with a pin on the right would be to play to the middle and trying to cut the ball is a big risk. But for the sake of possibly needing to do it in a tournament or having to cut around something, it is fun to try once and a while. The risk for me is a shank, I did it yesterday on an approach shot trying to cut into a back right pin. I put another ball down and hit my stock shot and GIR.
