The PRS Season Finale wrapped up today, and we have a new PRS Overall Season Champion: Kahl Harmon! Congrats, Kahl! Kahl not only won the season finale match but was this year’s golden bullet winner. (See the 2023 PRS Season Finale Match results and scores)
Here are the top 25 overall from the final 2023 PRS season rankings for the Open Division:
Well done to Morgun King, Andy Slade, Austin Orgain, and others who also had a phenomenal season. All of the names on that chart are absolutely among the very best riflemen in the world. Great season, fellas!
Your total season score is based on your best 3 pro-level, two-day PRS matches during the season (with at least one coming from a match designated as a “qualifier match”) at a max of 100 points per match. So the most points you can have coming into the finale is 300. The PRS finale match itself counts for up to 200 points in your overall score. Here is a breakdown of how many points each of the top 25 shooters had coming into the finale match and how many points they earned this weekend and added to their total season points. It’s always interesting to see how the shooters got where they did in the rankings.
First, well done to Kyle Mccormack! Kyle came into the finale ranked 23rd overall on the season with 292 points – but had an outstanding performance at the finale and jumped up to 6th overall! You can see a few others entered the finale with under 290 season points and burned it down over the weekend to land in the top 25! Ben Fleenor was ranked 60th going into the weekend but finished 9th at the finale to climb up to 23rd overall on the 2023 season. It’s awesome to see guys turn it on and perform – especially knowing they are shooting head-to-head with the best shooters in the world!
