200yds is a horrible distance for me - sits right at the top and bottom end of club ranges for me

5i (Cobra S3 Max 25*) is too inconsistent, but when hit right will just about get there, perhaps a little short.
4h(TM Rescue 09 22*) is normally a fairly safe bet, but if I catch it, I'll be out at 220+ and over the back of the green (which I have done more than once, btw!!)
5w(Cally BB 18*) is too long in the summer, but has been around that mark in the winter.

If i was playing safe, I'd hit a 6i and try to come up short(if the hole allowed); if I fancied a risk, or there was trouble at the front of the green, 4H.
