Steven Bowditch tacked on a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the 54-hole mark at 10-under 203, four shots adrift of 54-hole clubhouse leader Troy Merritt.
Bowditch began his round at 6-under (T15) and five swings back. On his day, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, circling five birdies to cover a lone bogey at the par-4 17th. After nearly holing his approach for eagle on the last, he had a nice look for a walk-off 3 from 8'1", but lipped out. The Aussie's set included birdie-4s on each of the three par 5s, a chip-in birdie on the 15th, and a conventional roll of 23'8" on the par-4 13th for his longest conversion of the day. He also rolled in a 19-footer to save par on the 10th. Making his 153rd career PGA TOUR start, Bowditch won the AT&T Byron Nelson at the end of May for his second career TOUR title. He also finished runner-up at the season-opening Open. Aug 1 - 5:02 PM

Steven Bowditch has opened the Quicken Loans National with a pair of 3-under-par 68s.

For a guy who was never a reliable short-term own, Bowditch has been downright steady since securing his second PGA TOUR victory in May. The QLN is his sixth payday in seven starts, four of which went for a top 30. And positioned just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, he's in line for another this weekend. The Aussie covered two bogeys with an eagle (from 28'4" at the par-5 fifth hole) and three birdies today.

Steven Bowditch twirled a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in today's third round of The Open Championship to post 8-under 208 after 54 holes.

He's tied for 15th and four strokes back of the tri-leaders at St. Andrews. Bowditch made noise early today with four birdies against no bogey going out. He added a fifth and final birdie at the par-4 12th hole before succumbing to bogeys at 13 and 14. He parred in. Since his second PGA TOUR title nearly two months ago, the Aussie has found a rare consistency. Three of his last five starts yielded top 25s. His totals of two top 10s and seven top 25s this season are career highs. And he arrived in Scotland at a lofty 15th in the FedExCup standings. It's inspiring stuff for the 32-year-old who battling clinical depression all of those years ago.

Steven Bowditch reached the halfway point of The 144th Open Championship in 5-under-par 70-69=139, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie went out in Group 5, which was the third threesome to tee off after today's weather delay of three hours and 14 minutes, so he will not be leading once 36 holes are complete. Still, it's a performance worth noting for now. He buried five birdies in both rounds and has dropped five shots, two apiece at Nos. 9 and 17. This is his first appearance in the season's third major since missing the cut in his debut in 2003.

Steven Bowditch looks for second win of the season at this week's Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Bowditch (No. 17), is one of nine players in the field at The Greenbrier Classic in the top 25 in the FedExCup standings. The Aussie is now a two-time winner on the PGA TOUR (149 starts), including this year at the AT&T Byron Nelson. In total, he's made only 12 of 22 cuts on the season, but half have gone for top 25s, tossing in a solo second at the season-opening Open. The 32-year-old, who celebrated his birthday nine days after his BNC win, hasn't lost much momentum following the victory, going T22 and T15 in his last two starts. The one hiccup was an 80 on Sunday at the Memorial, where he entered the final round at 8-under-par. Bowditch is 3-for-4 at the Greenbrier including a runner-up finish in 2013.
Jul 1 - 8:30 AM

Overnight leader Steven Bowditch rode seven birdies to a final-round, 5-under-par 34-30=64 to post 18-under 259 and a four-shot victory over a trio of runners-up.

Bowditch got married at the TPC Four Seasons, so he's familiar with posing for pictures at the venue. The local resident (Flower Mound) began his final frame with a two-shot lead over five players, including playing partners Dustin Johnson and Scott Pinckney. Bowditch was a little shaky at the outset, scoring 1-over thru his first five, including a three-putt bogey on the fifth. It was nothing about which to be alarmed, however, as the 31-year-old played his last 13 holes in a sparkling 6-under. It was Bowditch's week, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. This is the Aussie's second career win (in 146 starts), both of which in Texas (2014 Valero Texas Open). Today's exempts him into return trips to the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship this summer.

Overnight co-leader Steven Bowditch tossed up a 4-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 13-under 195, good for a two-shot lead over five players.

Bowditch began the third round in a three-way tie for the lead with Jon Curran and Jimmy Walker at 9-under. The 31-year-old smothered one bogey with five birdies en route to his two-shot margin heading into championship Sunday. Bowditch's par breakers came on Nos. 3, 6, 7, 11 and 14, squaring his lone bogey on the par-4 ninth. The Aussie is seeking his second PGA TOUR title in 145 career starts, having won the Valero Texas Open in 2014.
May 30 - 9:33 PM

Overnight leader Steven Bowditch chased his opening 62 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 1-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round to post 9-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

We're only two days into the tournament, but we've already seen most of the spectrum that the Aussie possesses. He putted the light out on Thursday, as he's often prone to do, and the added seven birdies today, but also incurred six bogeys. So, he easily leads the field with 15 birdies but drifts into a tie for the lead at the halfway point.
May 29 - 9:47 PM

Steven Bowditch blitzed TPC Four Seasons for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-30=62 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and sits alone atop the leaderboard.

The Aussie is fresh off a disqualification at Colonial where it was never released what happened even though we assume it was due to him signing for an incorrect scorecard. Whatever the case, he got after it early and often at TPC Four Seasons today. Bowditch striped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. He opened with a 24-footer for birdie at the par-4 first hole and added notable conversions from 30'2", 29'3" and 18'4" at Nos. 4, 9 and 14. He signed his card ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.110 at last check) and leading the field in strokes gained: putting (4.221). Today's aggregate equals his career low in 398 rounds on the PGA TOUR (final round; 2011 Sanderson Farms).

Steven Bowditch was disqualified from the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial after his second round.

The Aussie reached the midpoint in 5-over-par 69-76=145, so he wasn't going to survive the cut anyway. He carded a pair of 38s on the nines today with four bogeys and two doubles. The DQ was most likely due to him signing an incorrect scorecard, but we will confirm it if that information is released. It's his fifth in 145 PGA TOUR starts; all of the previous four occurred in his rookie season of 2006.
May 22 - 6:44 PM

Steven Bowditch painted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Terrific stuff considering he hit only 11 greens in regulation. In fact, he hit 11 GIR in the first round, too, and swallowed but one double bogey against six birdies en route to a 68. His longest of five birdies in the second round found the target from 32'3" at the par-4 fourth hole. At 9-under 135, Bowditch is two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. At last check, he ranked fourth in the field with a aggregate strokes gained: putting clip of 4.982. He's still in pursuit of his first top-35 finish in a full-field event since opening the season with a solo second at the Open.
Apr 25 - 9:55 AM

Steven Bowditch rebounded for an even-par 36-36=72 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 8-under 152, but missed the cut by two strokes.

He got caught up in the unfavorable half of the draw at TPC San Antonio this week. As today's score indicates, Bowditch's game was much tighter. He hit 11 greens in regulation and exchanged two birdies with two bogeys. Alas, it's merely the latest in a string of disappointing results. In his last seven starts, he's cashed just once for a T62 at Bay Hill. Other notables to miss today's cut include: 151--three-time champ Justin Leonard; James Hahn; Russell Knox ... 152--Daniel Berger ... 153--2012 champ Ben Curtis; Scott Stallings; Charles Howell III; Andres Gonzales; Jason Dufner ... 154--Nick Watney; Sean O'Hair ... 155--2006 champ Eric Axley ... 157--Justin Thomas ... 158--Brendon de Jonge; Kiradech Aphibarnrat ... 162--Martin Kaymer.

Steven Bowditch opened his title defense of the Valero Texas Open with an 8-over-par 42-38=80.

Well, this wasn't any fun. Bowditch has just the one victory on the PGA TOUR and this is how Mother Nature treated his return. He split just six (of 14) fairways and hit only six greens in regulation. While he picked off two birdies coming home, they didn't relieve the sting of eight bogeys and a double (at the par-5 eighth). Scoring should improve on Friday, but the Aussie figures to have considerable work to do to make the cut.
Mar 26 - 3:09 PM

Steven Bowditch returns to TPC San Antonio to defend his title at this week's Valero Texas Open.

The Aussie arrived at last year's Valero completely out of form but pieced together three straight sub-70 rounds before surviving Sunday with a 4-over 76. It was his fourth look at TPC San Antonio, with none of his first three finishes landing inside the top 65. Gamers are really trying to catch lightning in a bottle if they reinvest this week as he sports missed cuts in five of his last six starts.
Mar 25 - 9:46 AM

Steven Bowditch is a veteran of three previous Valspar Championships and makes his way back to Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course this week.

After tying for 37th in his 2011 debut, he responded with back-to-back missed cuts in 2013 and 2014. He's broken par in just two of his eight rounds. At 37th in the FedExCup standings, he's certainly playing above his career arc in 2014-15. Most of his heavy lifting was done in the Open to start the season, where he posted a solo-second finish. The bad new is that he's missed his last four cuts.
