    It has to do with long run. Handicap events.
    It was always explained in Grand Program, Do not see it this year.

    Ford Purses:

    These are five individual purses per race, one of $1. for each of four sub-events (Events of 25 targets)
    plus 1 of $1. on the total score on 100 targets.
    To determine the winner of a purse,consider all perfect 25's on te first sub-event to be in a tie for the first purse; then these same shooters decide the winner on the subsequent Sub-Events exactly as in a shoot-off.
    Ties will be decided by sub-event if necessary. Ties will be decided by reverse score by sub-event,if necessary,for the second & third purses,
    and completely by reverse score by sub event on the fourth purse.
    The fifth purse or total will be won by the high score ,ties divide.

    Just a START. Hope this helps.

    On all Ford purses in Handicap events , the maximum amount a shooter may win is the value of two purses, one from winnings on scores in the sub-events plus one from winnings on the total score.
