I couldn't break +5 for ages. I'd make one marginal throw and get frustrated, which would affect the next 3 or 4 throws.
Finally I threw another +2 and a weight was lifted. About a week after that I shot a +1 that could easily have been even par. Yesterday I shot an even par that could have easily been -2!
I was more relaxed... not "trying" as hard, and wouldn't you know, it led to my best score. I just calmly took a few extra seconds to consider each and every shot before throwing. Funny how that works.
