I've only taken part in half a dozen contests, but the array of scores that earned GC does not seem unusual to me.
It may look odd for a 16th and an 18th to be part of the GC mix, but mathematically, the 1st(kudos) and the 9th lifted their overall enough to give them a 1st/GC.
On the flip side, you do have to look at all four scores and realize that EVERY one of those scores was basically in the top third of the field of 50, so that eliminates 2/3 of the field from GC. The 1st in chicken probably closed the door on the rest of the field.
Observing the scores of the reserve champion might (should) display an even greater disparity...what were those scores?
