Harpers Ferry’s David Bradshaw won his seventh West Virginia Open title last week, shooting 11-under-par for the championship. With his victory, the pro will receive a $6,000 cut of the $30,000 purse. Bradshaw last won the Open when it was hosted by The Pines Country Club in 2011.
Amateur golfer Sam O’Dell made quite a run, moving up the ladder to finish second on the par-72, 6,895-yard course. The 2013 WV Mid-Amateur Champion shot 5-under-par on the final day to bump himself up to a runner-up and low amateur finish.
During the final round, Bradshaw shot 67, with one eagle, four birdies and just one bogey (on hole number five). He made just three bogeys the entire week.
Vienna’s Scott Bibbee, who was in the next-to-last pairing group on the final day, won the Low Senior award.
Winston Canada, a former Oak Hill High golfer who lives in Beckley, registered a three-day total of 79-73-78—230.
