AMERICAN FORK, Utah - Gold Tip and Bee Stinger pro shooter Levi Morgan recently won his first tournament of the year at the Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Pro/Am in Augusta, Georgia. In addition, Gold Tip and Bee Stinger continued their ASA tournament dominance with wins in most of the major classes.
A longtime Gold Tip pro, Morgan has dominated the archery tournament rotation for more than a decade. He has claimed 10 consecutive ASA Shooter of the Year titles, seven IBO Triple-Crown Championships, and five IBO World Championships, making him the most decorated archer of this century. His dedication and skill was on full display in Georgia. He led the tournament going into the shoot-off and never looked back.
Gold Tip shooter Duane Price won the Senior Pro shoot-off with a final arrow. His Gold Tip X-Cutter hit the 12-ring for the win after a back-and-forth shoot-off, where the lead changed several times.
In addition, Gold Tip shooter Justin Hannah set a new one-day record in the Men's Known Pro Division with an incredible 18 out of 20 12-ring hits with his X-Cutter Pro shafts, scoring 236 out of 240. This class is the largest pro class in archery and is attracting some of the best talent in the industry.
In the Amateur classes, Gold Tip shooters took wins in most of the major classes, showcasing the incredible performance of these award winning arrows.
ASA 3-D archery features competitive rounds shooting lifelike, three-dimensional animal targets made of foam. Amateur classes are decided by the final totals after 40 targets. Pro Classes shoot the same 40 targets. Then, the top five scores in each Pro class advance to a shootdown, where they shoot up to an additional six more targets with a more difficult 14-point ring added to enhance the risk and reward for extreme accuracy.
