WOAY – David Bradshaw, winner of the last three and 10 overall West Virginia Opens, continued his high level of play in the 2019 championship and has opened a nine-shot lead following the second round.
Posting 66 on both Wednesday and Thursday, the Harpers Ferry stands at -14 through 36 holes, with Huntington’s Josef Dransfeld in second place at five-under. Only seven golfers posted subpar rounds on Thursday, as opposed to 11 in the first round.
61 golfers would make the cut (+11) to play the final round Friday, including three from Southern West Virginia. Chris Daniels (Beckley), Todd Duncan (Daniels), and Carson Proffitt (Camp Creek) all have a chance to finish in the top 40, which means automatic qualification to the 2020 Open. In addition, two area golfers missed the cut by just one stroke
