I am a NASP competition archer who, for the first 4 years of shooting, could not see the target; AMA!
Hello, I'm a member of the homeschool archery team DG Archery, located in Texas. I've been on the team for the past 4 years, and until 2 months ago, was not even aware I was supposed to see the target. I'm not blind, I just am extremely near sighted.
Despite my handicap, I worked for those 4 years getting my scores as high as possible, even becoming one of the highest scoring on the team. About 2 months ago, I found out about my eyesight when jokingly putting my friend's glasses on, they obviously weren't a perfect match, but it showed me what the world is supposed to look like. Since then, I've gotten glasses, which boosted my scores to incredible levels. Since I practiced so hard at getting accurate with out vision, adding vision made me incredible. I used to get scores of about 260-265/300, and, as of three days ago, have a new record of 287/300.
I'm so proud of my accomplishments I figured I'd share. Sure its nothing compared to most of the posts here, but I'm feeling confident nonetheless.
