The 2012 Buckmasters Top Bow World Championship kicked off Thursday morning with plenty of low scoring rounds.
Buckmasters has added new challenges this year in order to test even the best veteran archers, and especially the new guys.
Top Bow Coordinator, Mike Foster said, "I was a little tough on them this year. We backed up the course and this first round is really difficult. Because of all the misses, the first round has actually gone faster than in previous years."
Foster added, "They haven't seen everything yet. There will be a few surprises in the coming rounds."
Leading the field of 70 contestants after the first round of competition is Keith Brown, in Pool B, with a score of 129, and Dewayne Walker in Pool A, with a score of 134. Notably, Tom Boatwright follows close behind Walker with a score of 133, in Pool A.
The top 18 archers in each pool will face off late Thursday night and early Friday morning before advancing to the weekend semi-finals and finale on Sunday.
