    If I win the first hndcp event from the 20 and by shoot off time I'm back on the 25, where would I shoot the shoot off from?

    You shoot off from the distance you shot from to win the event. If you won on Monday from the 20, shoot offs were canceled Monday, Tuesday you won again from the 22 again with shoot offs canceled then same Wednesday from 24 yards. When you shot off for mon. event, it would be from the 20, tues. from the 22 and wed from the 24. Scores determine earned yardage not position.

    9point3- Fine question. No rules actually cover this but my opinion would be that you would shoot from the 25 yard line. You are not shooting off for the event you won, you are in a sense shooting off for nine events. The EC would have to make a ruling on this question. It has never come up before and I really enjoy such hypothetical things.

    i posed a similar question on another thread and a couple people thought it would be the 20YD line.

    Time will tell

    It would be wrong for a 27yd winner to get to shoot the $100,000 shoot off from where he has been shooting from but a 20yd winner has to shoot from new yardage

    Hell no 9.3

    If you gain yardage during the shoot you should shoot from the increased yardage.

    One way to "address" sandbaggers.

    He should shoot from the 20 yard line, that was his qualifying score at that yardage.

    If he was high and won each handicap he should shoot several times from the different yardages.

    If he won 3 handicaps, let's 20yds, 22 1/2 yds, 25 yds he would shoot from each yardage for 3 scores, the reason I chose those yardages, he would have earned 2 1/2 yds for each win

    This could be a 20 yarder from Kentucky, Good luck guys figuring this one out.

    I am sure they will make a rule that will disqualify him, I think Frank Rively will be the spearhead of it. Wanting to spear the Ky. guy.

    It might even be an Obama appointee shooting off.

    Tom- Your question posted on another thread had a simple answer. If you tie for a handicap event on Monday, you shoot the shoot off from the yardage you shot during the event. On Tuesday, you would shoot from your new yardage.

    This question involves winning the handicap event on Monday from the 20. Then gaining additional yardage in subsequent events during the week and shooting the Grand American from the 25 yard line on Saturday. The shoot off for the big money will be Saturday evening. Again it is a question not covered in our rues and probably has not been considered by the EC. In just over a week, I will poise this question to several members of the EC and by the Grand, we will have an answer.

    I'm pretty sure you shoot the $100,000 shootoff from your present yardage. So if you win Prelim Sat. handicap from the 22 and get 2.5 yards to the 24.5 and you shoot the next 4 handicaps and gain a .5 yard to the 25 yardline, then the BIG shootoff you shoot from the 25 Yardline.

    RMJr's response seems to be the most equitable for everyone concerned.

    Yep that right the most equitable for everyone except the guy that won at 22.......LOL. Of course it doesn't matter to the 27yd shooters no matter what or how many they win they won't have to worry about it. They don't have to move now do they.

    Richard, if this comes down to you and me, like we discussed in Tucson, we're still going to the 50 yard line to settle this aren't we? :)

    Carl,

    As i stated before the final shootoff will be from your present yardage. Say someone win's the Grand American Handicap from the 22-yardline which is the last handicap and you get 2.5-yards to the 24.5. You will shoot for the $100,000 from the 24.5-yardline.

    Hap,

    That sounds good to me! LOL

    This is a "problem" which will solve itself, no matter what the official decision. Either

    1. He shoots from his original yardage. Result: no problem. Or

    2. He shoots from yardage subsequently gained. Result: He's not going to shoot any more handicap until the shoot-off. You think he's nuts?

    Guys, the fact is there is no answer to the question yet. All of you that insist the rules call for a certain outcome are wrong. It is a special event and it may be organized in any fashion they want.

    Nothing wrong with pointing out what you think is best; but it's a bit early to start blaming people unfairly, don't you think LS?

    Now, my view on this currently is that I'd let qualifiers shoot from the yardage that they shot to qualify, not from their yardage at the time of the special event. You are free to disagree, but it is not wrong, since no rule applies here.
