Bradshaw grabs W.Va. Open lead

July 16, 2010

HURRICANE, W.Va. (AP) -- David Bradshaw remembers the time Tim Fisher beat him soundly to win the state high school golf tournament more than a decade ago.

The friends have gotten the best of each other over the years and both have carved their own niches on the state golf scene. Bradshaw is a four-time West Virginia Open champion and Fisher has won the state Amateur three times.

Today, they will be paired together and it will mark the latest round in their quest for personal bragging rights.

"Tomorrow's going to be a lot of fun," Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw shot a 7-under-par 64 Thursday for a two-stroke lead over Fisher entering the final round of the Open at Sleepy Hollow Golf Club.

Bradshaw, a Harpers Ferry native who started the day four strokes behind first-round leader Hop White, posted seven birdies during a bogey-free round to tie his lowest round ever. He's at 7 under for the tournament.

"That was my goal," he said. "My goal was to put myself in the final group and once again I find myself there."

He's one step closer to a fifth championship, which would tie him with Grafton's Brad Westfall for the second-most behind Sam Snead's 17 titles.
