For the second time in his long career, Randy Hendrix of Clemmons, NC hoisted the bronze Buckmasters Top Bow World Championship trophy above his head.
Top Bow’s all-time leading prize-winner was able to conquer his nerves in order to bring home the most coveted prize in tournament archery. Hendrix put together a near-perfect round to fend off second place finisher and former champion, Tom Boatwright.
Hendrix hit every animal target on the difficult course and needed only to hit the red dot on the tenth and final target to claim what Jackie Bushman calls a “Golden Round.” This means the archer hit all targets, including the small red dot bullseye in the final round of the championship. It has never been done in Top Bow history. Unfortunately, Hendrix’ final arrow strayed just outside the center and into the yellow ring, but was still good enough to give him the win.
Earlier in the day, the semi-finals featured head-to-head matches: Hendrix vs. Larry Goza, and Tom Boatwright vs. Colin Boothe.
Stay tuned for a complete wrap up of Top Bow 2012!
