Try and go for it. If it doesn't happen you have a short chip up to the green. Always expect everyone to do the unthinkable in matchplay.
Your down by one with one to play. You snap-hook your drive into some trees, but because it is a dogleg left, you have 50 yards into the green. A tree is blocking your path some 12 feet in front of you. Do you try and hit over the tree onto the green to try and give yourself a chance for birdie? Or do you take your medicine and punch out backwards to 120 yards and try to make par? Your competetor has missed the GIR but has a short chip for birdie.

play safe but not too safe. then if u mishit it a little ur in good position or if u strike it well your still not too far away.
level on 18, reachable par 4. bunkers surround the green with ob if your 25 yards offline both sides. your opponents up and puts in right rough but only 30 yards from the green with a great angle to a tight left flag. hit driver and go for broke to try and win on 18 or play safe wit fairway wood or long iron and hope your opponent doesnt get up and down and go to the 19th.

Ill keep this moving.
You've got 30 or so yards into a green. Pin is almost exactly 3 paces on, it has an opening up the front of a raised green that is shaved very close ala Pinehurst No.2. Do you take your lob wedge, loft it and try to land it on top of the flag, or take a mid iron or so, and run the ball up onto the green?
