Another season of target archery competition has come and gone and once again Mathews shooters win archery’s biggest events in 2015. And whether it’s a win at the world’s top 3D Championship, the ASA Classic, by Dan McCarthy, or the world’s most prestigious and largest indoor competition, the Vegas Shoot, won by Alex Wifler, the accuracy and reliability of the Mathews brand continues to stand out on the winner’s podium.
The dominance of the Mathews brand was on display throughout 2015 as Mathews shooters continued to find themselves on the ASA winner’s podium with big wins in the Women’s Pro, Senior Pro and Men’s Pro divisions.
Kailey Johnston had an incredible year finishing in the top 3 of nearly every Women’s Pro event and three 1st place wins for the year. Sharon Carpenter could also be found at the front of the pack throughout the year and was the Women’s Pro Champion at the Texas Pro/Am.
Senior Pro, Tom Crowe, earned the top spot on the podium at the Texas Pro/Am and went on to win 1st at the 2015 ASA Classic. Senior Pro, Duane Price, battled hard throughout the year to earn 2015 Shooter of the Year and a payback of $5,000.
Dan McCarthy and Tommy Gomez seemed to grow fond of their time on the winner’s podium throughout the tournament season with Gomez winning 1st in the Kentucky Pro/Am and McCarthy winning 1st in the Texas Pro/Am. The two went on to dominate at the ASA Classic with McCarthy placing 1st and Gomez at his side in the 2nd place position following an incredible round of high-pressure shots.
“After Day 1, I knew I had to be dangerously aggressive in order to make a move to the top,” says McCarthy of his performance at the Classic. “With my Chill-X in my hand, I started Day 2 on a roll, hitting 6 of my first 7 twelves. I finished strong and went into the shoot-off in 3rd place with a score of 432, just 4 points behind the leader. Within the first 5 targets of the 6 target Pressure Point Shoot-off, I was able to take the lead by 1 point. The final arrow decided everything. I found myself shooting against a close friend and fellow Mathews shooter, Tommy Gomez. As luck would have it, I was able to execute a perfect shot and seal the deal on another ASA Classic Championship for my sponsors and myself.”
