"Going out today, I thought if I could get to 8 under, shoot a 66, the 'round of your life' sort of a deal, maybe have a shot," O'Dell said. "It wouldn't have mattered. He's tough - and he probably gave a couple away."
The 30-year-old Bradshaw added to the Opens he won in 2004 as an amateur, then in 2006-07 and 2009-11 as a professional. He ranks second to the 17 titles won by the great Sam Snead.
His $6,000 check adds to the $4,000 he earned last week on the eGolf Tour, finishing fifth in an event in Charlottesville, Va. Next week he'll tackle the Frank Fuhrer Invitational in Pittsburgh, a $175,000-purse tournament in which he's the defending champion.
Tied for third behind Bradshaw and O'Dell were Bob Friend of Pittsburgh and Christian Brand of Charleston. The second-best amateur was Charleston's Bosten Miller, who just finished his first year in Marshall's medical school. He was tied with Kenneth Hess, a pro from Parkersburg.
Philip Reale II was alone in seventh at 1 under, and Woodward finished eighth at even. Woodward, who will play collegiately at Wake Forest, suffered a 75 Friday, which included a two-stroke penalty on the second hole.
Bradshaw was aided by the absence of past Open champs Jonathan Clark, Craig Berner and Barry Evans, all playing in Sunriver, Ore., at the PGA Professional National Championship.
Then again, Bradshaw wouldn't mind being somewhere else when the 2014 Open is played at Glade Springs. A hint: After playing in Pittsburgh, he is gunning for the Monday qualifier for the Greenbrier Classic, also played at the Cobb Course.
"My game's been so good this year," he said. "I need opportunities to play at a high level, and that's kind of what I'm waiting on. If I could squeak through those Mondays and get in, get the chance to play, because if I can play this well at a higher level, payday could be really, really big, substantial, life-changing."
