I'm going to read the thread later, I think there'll be learning here. lots of it.
from the first post - 235 to the flag, rear placement and lots of green short......light head wind (part of a club's worth?)
I'd hit my 220-225 club if I have one - you note the hybrid (for me it would be my 2H if in the bag, or my 5w). I have a slight fade on mine unless I really control my right elbow, so I'm comfy. You can likely just hit a light fade on purpose. If you nail it, it'll likely go high, so the what wind is there might soften the landing. If not, the roll out should be useful. and rolling through the green isn't the end of the world.
seems pretty clear, if you come up short, you have a lot of green to muck with, and if you lay up, there's not much of a benefit here. You don't need to go long due to pin placement. So center of green if you have the fade looks pretty tasty,
that's at your handicap - seems a no brainer
I'd flip a coin on going for the green, my misses on the 5w tend to a push, but not too often. so a miss might leave me with a lob chip or uncomfy shot from under the tree...... But it's very tasty and fits my eye really well. If not, I'd try to layup to the 100 yard shot
