Winchester Ammunition has announced the re-signing of champion trapshooters Foster and Matt Bartholow. For over a decade, the Bartholow brothers have represented Team Winchester while performing at a high level during competition and routinely topping the leaderboards. In addition, the Bartholows share their passion for trapshooting with the next generation by hosting several youth clinics across the country.
Foster Bartholow made a name for himself in the trapshooting world at the 2008 Grand American, where he was declared co-champion of the Clay Target Championship after a 900-target shoot-off with the late, great Leo Harrison III. During the shoot-off, neither of them missed a target. Since then, Foster has continued to be a top shooter. When Foster isn’t shooting trap, he is busy in the field hunting turkey, geese and big game.
Matt Bartholow’s list of accomplishments begins in 2005, when he became the Sub-Junior Clay Target champion at the Grand American. Six years later, he won the Grand American Doubles Championship and earned the coveted championship ring. Over the years, Matt has cemented himself as one of the all-time greats in trapshooting history. He was the 2600 Target HOA at the 2017 and 2019 Grand American and the runner-up in 2012 and 2018. In addition, Matt has also compiled some monster streaks and averages in doubles trap—enough to include him among the greatest doubles trapshooters in history.

Here is what Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition, had to say about the re-signing of the Bartholow brothers.
“The AA brand of shotshells is known for its consistent performance under pressure, much like Matt and Foster. The Bartholows have established themselves as some of the best trapshooters in the country, and we are proud to have them represent Team Winchester.”
