Through the first 4 Handicap events at this years Grand,of the top 47 scores, 41 were shot from the 27 yard line. No one less than 22 yards made the top 47. SURPRISE anyone ??? CED

Complete domination by long yardage shooters is the norm for all major shoots if you add up all the days shot at each particular shoot. Nothing has changed! A short yardage shooter may end up winning the big pot, but the odds are highly against it.

Shannon. I could not agree more. And I tell ALL of you this... I may not get to the Valhalla of 27, nor win a major event, (or minor one for that matter) but practicing handicap and watching your scores go up on the weekend is heady stuff. Practice your handicap and not just bust clays at the 16 yard line and watch for intermittent and steady improvement.

Holding at the 26, Jack

I look up guys on ATA "Look-up" all the time. One of my heroes over the years has slipped to 26 and busting scores like I do. I truly hope he is having fun like I am. And Too, How many of you go to weekend shoots and then take the time to thank the management for holding a ATA shoot? Huh? I do every time I go.

The ATA handicap system "ROCKS"

Thanks for letting me play.

markdenis-Mark you don't want to let me out of our bet for the $100,000.00 do you. It is looking like Rich Kaysa is going to be my only dog in the shoot-off.

Talk to you later.

I looked up the first five 100K challenge qualifiers lifetime handicap totals. They are as follows:

Marvin Beumer - 67,050
Nathan Wayne Hofer - 24,600
Richard Kaysa - 39,250
Leo Harrison III - 248,350
Craig Blank - 26,800

All of these totals are prior to the Prelim week, and combine for a total 406,050 handicap targets. Garrett

Why should it suprise anyone? They are the best, they didn't get to the 27 by shooting poorly, or even average. Oldtimer your stats don't hold up through the 5th round of caps, Jack Herrick 98 from the 19.5 yesterday tied with the top 5. He wound up Sub Jr. Winner. Bet he will be on the 27 in no time flat.

With this game anything can happen I guess, but it would surprise me if there are any short yardage shooters that even make the shootoff much less win the big pot.
