Forced and unforced errors are likely taken from tennis, where they are commonly used terms.
They are better suited for tennis, as each player's action is more directly linked to what shot his/her opponent has just made - therefore, forcing an error directly is more obvious in tennis than in curling, where there is no direct reaction, and where there is more time to decide what shot to make, and where more options usually exist.
"It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own... but the great man is he who, in the midst of the crowd, keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
