Hogue Challenge: Far & Near Standards returns to the IRC with a $1000 cash award for a "zero" score. Standards will be shot as clock time instead of par time so the dreaded overtime shot is not a factor. Clock time means you have as much time as needed to get all your rounds on the targets. Standards will be shot in a regular rotation with colored X centers. All competitors scoring zero or minus on Standards will split the $1000 prize.
The IRC welcomes our Premier Sponsors that have generously contributed cash in addition to merchandise.
