Professional sporting clay shooters battle tough conditions in Teague

Professional sporting clay shooters from around the country gathered at Caney Creek Lodge near Teague for event number three of the 2014 Professional Sporting Clays Tour, and it proved to be a very close and competitive event.

Locals from Teague saw license plates from as far away as Florida and Utah converge on their tiny town to test their skills against the best sporting clay shooters in the country.

The shooters were up against a super-challenging course setup, combined with a 20-plus mph wind that made hitting targets extremely difficult.

All of the shooters met the challenge head on and shot some impressive rounds on the course.

The scores were extremely close in the Men’s Professional Division.

Gebben Miles walked away with another win on the PSCA Tour. His score of 271 was enough to lead the Men’s Professional Division. Desirae Edmunds dominated the Women’s Professional Division with a score of 232.
