Here is what Hendricks said about his victory during an interview with AccurateShooter.com:

“The heat and humidity were very challenging, but everyone had to deal with that. I struggled a bit on the first two relays on day one, actually shooting an eight due to a mental mistake on relay one. Both those relays were cleanable and I dropped six points. Being able to refocus myself and only drop three points in the last six relays is something that I will forever use as a mental tool. I’ve been close to winning a few big matches. I never felt like I choked at the end, but after a while you start to question yourself a little. Of course, this win got that monkey off my back.

I’d like to thank my sponsors—Lapua, Brux barrels, Borden Accuracy and Kahles, as well as my teammates on Team LBB—they were pulling for me and I felt it. Shout out to X-Ring Rifle Stocks—the owner Jason and I developed a new F-Open stock a couple years ago. He’s a smart, hardworking guy who took the time to listen to a few unconventional ideas.”
