Pro Christian Brand, a former Capital High and Marshall standout who finished tied for second with Bradshaw last year, finished at 1-over 73. Scott Bibbee of Vienna, a member of PCC, shot an even-par 70 to tie for eighth.
Patrick and several of the Open participants picked a fantasy team among the players in this week's field.
"We had a draft last night,'' he said. "It was 10 of us sitting around Buffalo Wild Wings watching the [NBA Finals] and nobody picked me.
"I didn't even pick myself. Everybody else picked themselves except me. I won first pick and I picked Christian [Brand]. I may throw it coming down the stretch or the cash. No, I'm kidding.''
Patrick was the first participant out on the first hole of Sunday's Coca-Cola Shootout at the Open.
"It's definitely a different feeling you get in your stomach when you get that low under par,'' said Patrick, a 1991 graduate of Huntington East High School who didn't start playing golf until college. "I'm usually around par when I play. I really don't go low. I think I've had a couple of 66s in my day just playing with my friends [and] not in a tournament of any sort.''
Patrick will tee off today on No. 10, where he missed 10-footer for eagle Wednesday.
"I'd like to get that eagle back,'' he laughed. "I'm going to play aggressive and keep going at it.''
"Ian's a great dude,'' added Bradshaw. "I really like him. He's so cool and nice. I'm pumped that he's playing well. I'm happy for him.''
