ASA Men’s Pro Division is split in two main categories, Open Pro and Known Pro. In Open Pro, competitors shoot two rounds of twenty targets from unmarked distances, while in Known Pro they shoot from known yardage markers. These targets vary in distance up to 50 yards and the five highest scores from the first two rounds qualify for the shoot down to decide the winners in each category. This weekend Team Mathews took the top spot in both categories.
