    WOW This guy can shoot. His averages are 99 in 16s, 98.73 in caps from the 27, and 98.73 in doubles. He just broke 100 straight from the 27 yesterday. So far he has broke 6 100 straights at the grand.

    No surprise to the guys like me west of the big muddy.

    It is a wonderful, and competitive family.

    Anyone watching both Matt and Foster are not surprised, they have shown themselves to be quite the talented "young" competitors. New generation forces to be reckoned with. I have never seen them shoot, but have followed them very close on the score board and magazines. Bud and Char must sure be proud. Scott

    And just think... he's not what we consider a "full time" shooter! Not only are Matt and Foster great shoots, they are outstanding young men. SDtrapfamily did a great job raising them!

    I met both Foster and Matt a few years ago at the Montana State shoot and two of the nicest young men I have met shooting They were on fire there also also breaking 100's . They are a joy to watch shoot just snatching the empties out of the air with out even looking they make it look easy like all elite athletes in sports . Bud and Char sure did a excellent job and should be very proud of their boys. I hope to see them shoot next week in person.

    Competing with either one on the line is a work in progress for anyone!! I see that Matt broke the first 100 in the singles championships!! Good luck to both these fine young men!!

    They are our top shooters.

    I have had the pleasure of getting to know the entire Bartholow family on a personal level. They are a special family and pride themselves on giving back to the sport. As for their shooting, Matt and Foster are both quite impressive shooters. They are both quite humble in their accomplishments and seem to never quit tweaking their own recipes to good shooting. If you get to know them, you soon realize they are two completely different shooters in numerous ways but yet they both never hesitate to try their best to pick each other up.

    As for the Grand, they are both shooting quite well but Matt is just flat on fire. Anyone who knows Matt, can tell you Doubles is his passion. I've tried to keep my distance so that none of my funk brushes off on him. LOL

    Matt

    P.S. Just got word Matt ran the Doubles again today. WOW!!
