    punch every time

    dont try and get greedy if you are quite a distance from the hole just play to get back on the fairway

    if you are near the green then by alls means punch out to go for the green

    Automatic. Plus, you're not going to get any kind of respectable carry and distance so make sure you redirect the aim into the closest part of the fairway to you.

    What is the advantage over a punch rather than full shot in this situation?

     you are more likely to actually get out of the brush

    from fairway brush, I always use the punch shot

     

    heavy green side brush (60/70), I've always selected my shortest wedge (64deg) and hit a full shot and it gets the ball out and on to the green normally not far away from the hole. lighter brush, you can try and play a more finesse shot but try that wedge shot
