    SPARTA — With three shots remaining in the $100,000 Grand Challenge, Michael Obert seemingly had the money in his pocket.


    He had a two-shot lead on Stephen Fitch, but missed the shot. The event capped the 2012 Grand American at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex.


    Whatever Obert, who shoots from the 24.5-yard line, told himself before the last shot worked. He smoked the final target. He plans to save the money for his two grandchildren.

    Arkansas resident Jessica Self claimed the inaugural $50,000 Ladies Grand Challenge.

    Self took the money by hitting a perfect 25. She eliminated half the 10-shooter field with the perfect score. Self didn’t know she had to break at least 23 targets to remain in the competition.


    Emily Effermeyer of Ravenna, Mich., shooting in her first Grand American, took the $15,000 second prize, topping Sandra Luchetta of Boulder, Colo., in a shoot-off.
