VIENNA, W.Va. (AP) — Starting the final round with a three-shot lead at the West Virginia Open on Friday, David Bradshaw gave the rest of the field little chance to catch him.

Bradshaw shot a 5-under-par 67 to beat Hurricane amateur Sam O’Dell by four strokes at Parkersburg Country Club.

Bradshaw finished at 11 under, pulling away with birdies on three of the final four holes.

O’Dell also shot 67 and finished at 7 under. Charleston pro Christian Brand and Morgantown pro Bob Friend tied for third at 3 under. Brand shot 69 and Friend had a 70 Friday.

Bradshaw earned his seventh Open championship in 10 years. The late Sam Snead holds the record with 17 state Open wins.

Bradshaw put up his sixth consecutive under-par round in the Open. The Harpers Ferry native had three bogeys during the tournament.

It was both his best-ever finishing score in relation to par at the Open and his largest victory margin. All of Bradshaw’s six previous wins either were by one stroke or came in a playoff.

O’Dell, who was in the final group with Woodward and Bradshaw, made back-to-back birdies while Bradshaw bogeyed the fifth hole, and suddenly the lead was reduced to one stroke.

Bradshaw regained momentum with an eagle at the par-5 sixth and a birdie at No. 9 to move to 8 under. The lead stayed at two strokes or better on the back nine.
