Unhappy Good Shot gone bad...really bad!

So the other day I was out playing. I'm on a par 4 that requires a tight drive to an uphill pin heavily guarded by trees. I threw a good drive right down the "fairway". My next shot was even better...or so I thought. I threw my DX Shark, it was headed right for the basket. At this point I figured it either goes in or i'm in prime position for a birdie. Next thing I know it lands just short of the basket, flips up on the rim and starts rolling down the hill...ends up...2 feet behind me. It was the most disheartning thing ever watching it roll down this hill and just keeeeeep going, I just wanted to run up and dive on it to make it stop.

Tell me about you're good shots gone bad, so I don't feel so bad about mine haha.

I was playing a local course, and my 50' putt hit the chains for birdie, was rejected and rolled down the hill past the basket.

That ended up being a bogey.

I hear you my man. I have had a putt roll about 100' down a hill at Oregon Park at hole number 6. Its kind of amazing how far a disc can roll. You watch it fall and almost stand still on its edge and then momentum and kinetic energy takes over and all you can do is laugh and cry. The frustration can only be turned around by a nice 30' putt on the next hole, and we keep coming back for more...

Just last week I had a similar experience....
I was playing hole 17 at Brookside Park in Indianapolis. It is 387 feet with the entire hole on a left to right downhill slope. This hill is very steep and probably 100' in lenght from top to bottom. It is a great sledding hll in the winter. I threw my Boss RHBH and It came in from the right just at the base of the basket, maybe a bit short. If it would have stuck, I would have been left with a 15-20' putt for a deuce, but it stood up and rolled all the way down the hill very quickly. I had a great up shot (literally) and saved a 3.

Earlier this week myself and a couple buddies went out to play a round at Deer Lick. We made it to the 13th hole, which is according to the signs 296 ft. (which some signs on course were def. wrong distance) and the basket is sitting up on top of a hill. So its my turn to drive and I throw a pretty nice shot with my predator and put it on a nice hyzer line. It's fading left, and heading right towards the basket. I knew it wasn't going to be an ace, but it was going to be an easy birdie putt. So it hit the top lip of the hill only to see it roll all the way down setting me up for at least a 75+ foot putt, which for me isn't an easy putt whatsoever. So I end up paring the hole to my disappointment. But I did throw a few more drives after I saw that junk happen, and of course none were close to as being as good as my first shot.

the great thing about making bad shots is that all your buddies laugh at you while it's rolling behind you.......

I threw a really nice looking drive on hole six at Iroquois Park that hit a tree ten foot away from the basket and rolled all the way back down the hill and past the tee where I was standing. The disc hit all kinds of roots on the way down but didn't stop.

my friedn had a putt at the top of a 50' hill. he layed up and the put landed completely flat right under the basket. then his disc flips up on the side and rolls all the way down the hill.

#7 at Baton Rouge Highland Road is across a deep water ditch and uphill to a tree-guarded basket. Threw my second from the basket side of the ditch and watched it land near the basket, sit up, and promptly roll back down the hill. I had to sprint a 4.3 40(well, OK but it felt that fast) to desperately grab it before it edged over the bank into the ditch of no return.
