VIENNA, W.Va. (AP) - David Bradshaw shot his second straight 3-under-par 69 to open up a three-stroke lead entering the final round of the West Virginia Open at Parkersburg Country Club.
The six-time Open champion was tied at the top after Wednesday's first round with Ian Patrick. But while the birdies kept coming for Bradshaw on Thursday, Patrick faltered. The Huntington amateur shot 77 to drop eight strokes back.
The day's best round belonged to Bridgeport amateur Woody Woodward. A 67 put him alone in second place at 3 under. Woodward's only other Open appearance came in 2011, when he finished 24th.
Hurricane amateur Sam O'Dell was alone in third at 2 under after shooting 71.
Two-time Open champion John Ross, Vienna amateur Scott Bibbee and Morgantown pro Bob Friend were five shots behind.
