Gold Tip and Bee Stinger™ Archers Top Podium at ASA Metropolis

Gold Tip, an industry leader in carbon arrows and bolts, is celebrating several wins at the ASA Mathew’s Archery “Superman” Pro/Am, which took place June 23-26 in Metropolis, Illinois. The tournament is the last stop before the ASA Classic Championship in late July.

Last year’s Classic champion Jeff Raney took the top spot in the highly competitive Known Pro class. “I knew Jeff was going to win big events shortly after I met him,” said Tim Gillingham, staff manager for Team Gold Tip and Bee Stinger. “He just has the intensity that it takes.” Meanwhile, teammate Kyle Douglas finished third.

In the Open Pro class, Levi Morgan took home the second-place spot. In the Senior Pro class, Tim Gillingham took first place in a shoot off that was won on the final arrow. In both the Senior Pro and Known Pro classes, all archers were within two points of each other going into the shootdown, illustrating how tough the competition really is at these events.

“I wasn’t sure I was even going to make the shoot-off and then hit two of the last three 12s and was pleasantly surprised that I was only two points out of the lead,” said Gillingham.  “I knew my Bowtech/Gold Tip Triple X combo was shooting very well and all I needed was to judge good yardage in the shoot-off to win the event.”

Gillingham’s latest victory adds to an already impressive archery season that has seen him take second and first place respectively at the first and second legs of the IBO Triple Crown.
