    Wait. If you hit an air shot it still counts as a shot? So her drive off the tee was officially a second shot??

    Yes, you made an intentional swing at the ball, any air shot counts as a stroke.

    I had 1 on Sunday, but at least I was in the middle of a Willow tree, all the strands of the willow were hanging down all around where my ball was, I took a couple of casual back swings which seemed OK, but then when I unleashed I got tangled up like being wrapped up in an alien Ivy, it was funny but I could have broke my wrist as the strands of willow just stopped me in my tracks!

    Yes, there was actually a bit of discussion on this one by the tv commentators, because it was not clear if she had intended to miss the ball because something distracted her and she tried to pull out of the shot (in which case it would not have counted as a shot). But it was ruled (presumably after asking her about it) that it was a shot and she had intended to hit the ball and just missed it (in which case it counts as a shot).
