Gold Tip and Bee Stinger pro shooter Levi Morgan won the Open Pro Division of the Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Pro/Am in Metropolis, Illinois, held June 28 – July 1, 2018. In addition, Gold Tip staff shooter Glen Bordwell took home his first win as a pro in the Known Pro Division.
Levi Morgan: A Decade of Domination
A longtime Gold Tip shooter, Levi Morgan has dominated the archery tournament rotation for more than a decade. He has claimed 11 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. All his expertise and equipment were put to the test with high temperatures and humidity creating difficult shooting conditions for all the archery competitors. In the end, Levi Morgan won the event by scoring a 12-ring on his final arrow.
“I needed a 12 to win on my last shot,” recalled Morgan. “And that’s what I got! This never gets old!”
In what was the final ASA tournament of the season before the Tournament Championship in August, four out of the five finalists in the Known Pro Division were shooting Gold Tip. It was a dynamic shoot-off, with Bordwell taking home his first win as a pro. Glen Bordwell and Levi Morgan both took home victories shooting Gold Tip Ultralight X-Cutter Pro shafts.
About the ASA Event
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.
