SIG SAUER Championship Stage.
Jordan’s impressive run during the 2017 Starlight 3-Gun Championship almost ended with him sweeping all of this year’s top prizes, but his attempt was cut short during the final SIG SAUER® Championship stage. Defending champion and hometown favorite, Nick Atkinson, was able to defeat Jordan for the $5,000 winner-take-all prize, as the two competitors raced head-to-head using stage guns provided by SIG SAUER. Atkinson would go on to finish the match in third place overall, finishing only 1.4 seconds behind second place finisher Jesse Tischauser.
Greg Jordan hoists the Timney Cup.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be able to bring home the Timney Cup for Team Timney,” said Pennsylvania native Greg Jordan. “I had an absolute blast competing in this year’s championship. If you’ve never had a chance to shoot a match at night, you are certainly missing out.”
Jordan continued, “There were so many great sponsors at this year’s event and the Copperhead Creek Gun Club was a tremendous host all week. I would like to thank all of my sponsors as well as give a special note of thanks to John Vehr of Timney Triggers and Jim Shepherd for bringing their vision to life. The 3-Gun community is certainly lucky to have such a great group of individuals and companies supporting us and our sport.”
