Sam O'Dell overcame a shaky start to win his first West Virginia Amateur championship at The Greenbrier resort.
O'Dell shot a 6-over-par 76 Thursday on the Old White TPC Course in White Sulphur Springs to beat two others by six strokes.
O'Dell finished at 5 under. The 35-year-old Hurricane dentist entered the final round with a nine-shot lead. He had three bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine before making nine straight pars.
O'Dell raised the trophy for the first time since he started playing in the tournament in 1994. It caps a year that saw him win the state Mid-Amateur title in May and finish second in the West Virginia Open in June.
Bridgeport's Woody Woodward and Hurricane's Brian Anania tied for second place at 1 over.
