My vote was the flighted one hop and stop.   Driver is a full swing, long or mid iron is a full swing... something I do every shot. 
The flighted shot is something nobody practices.  Go to the range, it’s people beating ball after ball, nobody is there creating shots.  It takes skill, finesse and touch.  Feels great to pull it off and it messes with the heads of people playing with you.

Without a good drive you would most possibly be worse off considering the same order of events, yes?

😊

For me, the idea is that not only a piped drive terribly fun, but it puts you in a great frame of mind and the best chance for a par or better. Without a good tee ball you end up playing defensively all the way. Most of the time..

True. But how many times have we beaten ourselves up over "screwing up a good Drive?" I hate doing that! Making a long putt means we have saved ourselves at least one stroke. Didn't Tiger say that one of the most satisfying things to him was grinding over, and making, a long putt for par? Even if in trouble off the tee, you play the hole in par and don't give away a stroke.
