SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — David Bradshaw earned his ninth West Virginia Open title Friday, shooting a 2-under-par 71 for a three-stroke victory over Davey Jude.

Bradshaw finished at 12-under 201 at Edgewood Country Club to earn the $6,500 first-place check.

Jude shot 70 and finished at 9 under.

Thirteen-time West Virginia Amateur champion Pat Carter finished third at 8 under.

Parkersburg’s Isaac Prine shot rounds of 68, 78 and 69 to finish tied for 18th. He was 1-over par through 13, but birdied four straight holes to finish strong.

Vienna’s Alan Cooke, who tied for the best score of the day with a 4 under 67, was the only local to crack the top 10. He finished ninth.

Also placing in the top 20 from Parkersburg were Kenneth Hess (T10th, -1) and Ben Palmer (T16th, +1).

The late Sam Snead is the standard bearer with 17 state Open wins.
