RICHMOND, Va. (May 28, 2019) —Jack and Sharon Wallace, German Precision Optics (GPO) USA-sponsored husband-and-wife 3-D archers, both took home top honors at the fourth Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Pro/AM tournament in Appling, Ga.
With stiff competition throughout the entire tournament, Jack’s final score of 425 gave him his first Men’s ASA Open Pro title of the season accompanied by a check for $10,000. Coming in a close second place was Jay Moon with a score of 422, and Dan McCarthy finished in third place with a score of 420.
Also making a trip to the top honor of the podium, was Sharon Wallace, who claimed her second Women’s ASA Open Pro title for the year with 421, her highest score of record. Accompanying her at the podium was Cara Kelly with a score of 413 and Emily McCarthy with a score of 402.
“This was an extremely exciting weekend for us,” said Jack Wallace. “It is great when either of us wins, but to take the podium at the same tournament is very special.
“We want to thank GPO for their support. We don’t go anywhere without our GPO Passion 10x42s.”
ASA 3-D archery features competitive rounds shooting lifelike, three-dimensional foam animal targets. Amateur classes are decided by the final totals after 40 targets. Pro Classes shoot the same 40 targets and then the top five shooters in each Pro Class advance to a shootdown. During the shootdown each archer shoots an additional six targets with a more difficult 14-point ring added to enhance the risk and reward for extreme accuracy. There are a total of six ASA tournaments each year, and there are two left in this year’s season.
