The Compound Championship Open division is the Vegas Shoot’s headline event.
It’s the last result of the weekend to be decided, after all the shooters who scored a perfect 900 (plus one lucky dog) shoot off for the prestigious title.
That title is worth $53,000 in 2019.
With a record 70 archers still clean in the division after the first day of competition, we delved into the numbers to see how many might remain clean after the full 90 arrows.
Since 2013, between 39% and 48% of shooters on 300 after day one have had 600 after day two. The average is about 43%.
There’s no pattern to the number on 900 after day three, however, with that ranging from 15% to 30% of those perfect on day one.
Given that history, we’re expecting to see around 30 in the Compound Championship Open division still clean after day two in 2019. And our Championship Shoot Off could feature as low as 10 or as high as 20 perfect shooters on the line.
Since 2013, there’s never been more than 15 900s shot in the division. (That happened twice, in 2015 and 2017.)
At this, the largest Vegas Shoot in history with 3,767 registered archers, will we see the largest shoot off in history, too?
