The two "blow up" categories for me, at my stage, are bad shots where I know what I did wrong, and bad shots where I have no idea what just happened.

Knowing what mistakes I'm making makes it feel like less of a "blow up." It doesn't necessarily make sense, but if I can say "man I was late getting my shoulders clear" or something, I don't get as mad, I know I can fix it, or find out how.

When I have no idea what just happened, it can really get the wheels on the bus loosened.

I miss plenty of shots, but I'd say I still have 6/round that are absolute cock-ups....not just off the tee.

My drives can be a bit inconsistent, my putts can be a bit inconsistent, good thing my approach game is generally there for me.

I'm counting upshots that aren't disastrous but don't land in my comfort zone for putting when they very well could.

So where does this one fall?

My buddy had an absolutely terrible shot off the tee, he was off by 30 degrees (there's a open downhill section and then an alley you have to hit, let's say +/- 5 degrees about 75 feet out, hole is 335' long). It went through the heavily wooded area without hitting anything and with the fade ended just off the fairway probably about 150 ft out. He has a tough approach shot, again through trees and deuces it (this was a good shot, but give him another 100 throws fom that spot and I'd bet he'd never hit that line again). It's the on,y time he's birdied the hole. Great throw or poor throw?

The first throw is what I'm talking about. Sure I sometimes make great recovery shots but as someone said earlier - saving par or a lucky birdie means the previous shot was bad.

I guess we could add another thread asking how many lucky shots do you make a round. i.e. shots you just go "wow I'll bet I couldn't do that again".

As I said when I started this question came from some field practice when every once in a while someone went wrong I'd either crash a 150 ft out or be 20+ deg off angle.
