To a large extent, I'd choose to hit the ball solidly. That said, if I'm in a significant (to me) competition, I'd rather score.
Before I read any further, and turning the question back on its originator a little, I'm guessing that as a coach of a competitive team (like the Newport Cup), @iacas would prefer to have his players shoot low scores in competitions, no matter how they manage to accomplish that.
My point is, you’re approaching the OP’s problem from your perspective, not his. 265 flat carry with your swing speed is impossible, so of course to you it would be a dream to be able to hit that far.
The fact that you have tried different things to improve your driving illustrates my point. You understand exactly where the OP is coming from, though your post seemed to suggest otherwise.
