Battling through heat and humidity for the third straight day, sixty-two players entered today’s final round of the 84th WV Open at Edgewood Country Club looking to give them self a chance at hoisting the Joe Taylor trophy in victory. In order to do that, they all had to focus their sights on second round leader David Bradshaw. Bradshaw, eight-time past champion of this event, wasn’t going to give the tournament away though and even through a fifty-six minute rain delay halfway through his round was able to battle off several late chargers from his fellow competitors to capture his ninth title.

Bradshaw started his round slow and steady as he opened up with four straight pars. His first birdie of the round came on the par-5 fifth hole and he followed it up with another one on the par-4 eighth. A bogey on the ninth gave Bradshaw an opening nine of one under par and a four shot lead over Jude who had opened up with a one over-par front nine. Also carding a one under-par front nine was Huntington’s Pat Carter who also found himself four shots back heading to the back nine.  Bradshaw’s back nine was more of the same consistent play except for a double-bogey on the par-4 twelfth hole which brought Jude and Carter to within three shots of the lead. Two back to back birdies on fifteen and sixteen got Bradshaw to twelve under-par and clear of the push from Jude who had birdied fourteen and fifteen and Carter who birdied sixteen and eighteen. Bradshaw’s final round of 69 gave him a tournament total of twelve under-par, 201, and his ninth WV Open title. Claiming runner-up honors was Kermit’s Davey Jude who finished three shots back at a tournament total of 204. Claiming solo third and Low Amateur honors was Pat Carter who finished the tournament at eight under par. Low Senior honors went to Scott Davis of Hurricane who squeaked out Steve Fox by two shots with a tournament total of three under-par, 210. Low Junior honors went to Isaac Prine of Vienna who shot a tournament total of two over-par, 215.
