How to use hit-or-miss in a sentence?

  1. William McGirt:

    The rough is now so wet, it's really juicy and it's going nowhere. It's coming out just so dead. The fairways, it's kind of hit or miss, i had a couple of times where I had a bunch of mud on it and a couple of times where it was borderline casual (water) but I didn't get relief. I heard we're playing it up in the fourth round, so at least they're thinking smart in that respect.

  2. Miguel Cervantes:

    I do not say a proverb is amiss when aptly and reasonably applied, but to be forever discharging them, right or wrong, hit or miss, renders conversation insipid and vulgar.

  3. Callan Jansen of Washington state:

    It's just really hard to feel like the work I'm doing is real or important when the expectations are so vague, external motivators are really helpful for me, and right now it feels like I need to rely almost entirely on internal motivation, which can be really hit or miss.
