Yes that makes sense. I think if you stop to think about your shooting (Score, misses, mistakes, or how others are shooting) It lets doubts creep in and those doubts knock your confidence and that in turn can ruin your score.
A few weeks ago I was shooting FT really well (for me) until my shooting partner said "Wow you've hit 15 in a row, I hope I have'nt just jinx your shooting" I missed the next 4 shots!
