Bradshaw qualifies for Greenbrier Classic
The last 10 days have been a boon for Shepherd graduate David Bradshaw, a professional golfer now living in southern California and playing on the Canadian Tour.
Bradshaw won the Frank Fuhrer Invitational and its $40,000 top prize in Pittsburgh before going to central West Virginia to play this past Monday in a one-round qualifier for this week’s PGA Tour event in White Sulphur Springs. Bradshaw had to win the qualifier in order to be added to the 156-player field in the Greenbrier Classic at the Old White Course at the Greenbrier Resort.
Bradshaw carded a 5-under par round of 66 to tie two others for first place and necessitating a playoff for the one spot in the Greenbrier Classic. Bradshaw won the three-way playoff and will be in the field when the PGA tournament launches on Thursday.
The 32-year-old is a 2000 graduate of Jefferson High and played on Shepherd’s golf team before graduating there. He is a native of Bakerton in Jefferson County and was just recently voted into the Shepherd Athletic Hall of Fame.
