It means if you win more than X dollars in a handicap event from playing the options, you get a punch regardless of what your score is. This was an attempt to eliminate the guy that somehow manages to shoot 25 25 24 16 or something similar every time he goes out. Wins a bunch on the 50's from the 21 or 22 and never gets a punch for score.

Yes, unfortunately, someone could shoot an not unusual score but hit a big lewis and get a punch for their troubles...

NSX, you get a half-yard for $ over 750, and a yard for +1250, but they are not additive. If you win/tie and get a punch, you don't get the $ punch added to the winning/tying yardage.

It looks like he hit a 50, a couple of 25s and the jackpot and/or yardage purse, and was over the $750 marker for a half-yard.

'twas smart (and profitable) shooting, anyhow.

Who said playing the 50s was not worth it any more?

NSXER this is how it reads in the rulebook.

D. EARNED YARDAGE

Page 24

5. Any score of 97, 98 and 99 or winning a total of $750.00 or more
(option and added money) in a single handicap event will automatically
earn 1 yard, and a score of 100 or winning a total of $1,200.00 or more
(option and added money) in a single handicap event will automatically
earn 1-1/2 yards provided these scores do not earn at least that much
under the earned yardage table.

I was (obviously) going on (clearly faulty) memory - thanks for the correction & clarification, Bob.

Several years ago, the CHC identified a few shooters who consistently won large purses at the Grand playing the 50's option but never earned a punch. The money punch was adopted to resolve this limited situation.

There are very few shoots where one can win $750 or more with a score that did not earn a punch. When considering the Lewis option, the money punch might seem unfair, but how many shooters get $750 for a Lewis hit?
