Half the distance is used when a penalty has occured and the yardage that is penalized is longer than half the distance to the goal. Example: a team is on their own 10 yard line and they have a 10 yard holding penalty. 10 yards would put them in their own endzone, but they would penalize half the distance and they would start the next drive on their own 5 yard line.
