In many circumstances a shot thatís 50 yds offline is bloody dangerous, which closely relates to another matter within the game, but Iím not going to get into that matter just now.

40-50 yards is a lot off line. A double cross where you're looking to move a ball 20 yards left to right and instead pull it 10 yards left and have it move another 10-20 is how I get there occasionally. It's not 50 yards off of my starting point, but rather off of my attempted ending point. the hole moved a little left to right and had a lion's mouth fronting bunker. Pin was on the right hence my plan to cut it up the right side of the fairway. If the greens were firm there would have been a at least some cost to being on the wrong side of the fairway.

Off line depends on where one was aiming. 50 yards off centre fairway is a bit wide in most circumstances, but not necessarily crazy. It's wild if corridors are 60 yards wide, 60 yard wide corridors should be a rarity though.

Thick lost ball perimeters on both sides  tend to render preferred side strategy and centerline bunkers moot.

Anybody mention topography, wind, etc. in this discussion yet? Most of the responses make me think that the ď50 yards offline is a lotĒ comments are assuming calm conditions and flat terrain. Play somewhere where thereís much sideslope/ crosswind and youíre aiming offcenter already.
