Steven Bowditch has withdrawn from this week's Farmers Insurance Open.
It's been a busy morning of field changes at Torrey Pines. The Aussie is one of six to step out after the commitment deadline. He missed the cut at TPC Scottsdale by four strokes. That came on the heels of an MC at Humana. Despite five tries at the Farmers, his best result is a T75/MDF in last year's edition. However, thanks in large part to a solo second at the Open, Bowditch sits a lofty 18th in FedExCup points. Feb 2 - 12:40 PM

Steven Bowditch shot a 4-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The first-timer at Kapalua sits just three swings back of the clubhouse lead. Bowditch hit 14 greens in regulation and poured in an eagle-3 at the fifth hole to complement four birdies. He also bogeyed Nos. 2 and 18 and didn't convert anything outside eight-and-a-half feet, but beating 70 in a debut on The Plantation Course is getting it done.

Steven Bowditch will take his first shot at The Plantation Course this week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Aussie collected his maiden PGA TOUR win last season at the Valero Texas Open. After the big win, Bowditch went 9-for-16 over the remainder of the season while failing to get back inside the top 10. He kicked off the new season with a bang, circling a runner-up finish at the Open while collecting a pair of top 20s in Australia. Bowditch currently ranks 13th on the FedExCup leaderboard, but shouldn't be relied on this week as his makes his course debut.

Steven Bowditch signed for a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in the final round of the Open to establish a new clubhouse lead at 13-under 275.

Bowditch played his first eight holes at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course with seven pars and a bogey before finally squaring his front nine with a short birdie at the par-5 ninth. He caught fire on the back, picking up a couple of birdies on the par-4 12th and 14th holes before dropping a 34'1" eagle putt at the par-5 16th and a 12'7" birdie on the par-5 18th to end his day. He is alone in second in real time and trails Sang-moon Bae by four strokes. Bae still had six holes to navigate at the time of Bowditch's posting.

Steven Bowditch lit up TPC Boston for a 6-under-par 29-36=65 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to end the tournament at 2-under 282.

The Aussie was absolutely on fire out of the gates, circling two eagles and three birdies on his front nine. The putter was a big reason he jumped out to the fast start, holing birdies from 16'8" and 38'8" on the par-4 first and fifth holes to go with eagles from 10'2" and 14'11" on the par-5 second and par-4 fourth holes. He cooled on the back, with eight pars only interrupted by a bogey at the par-4 14th. Bowditch entered the week 44th in the FedExCup standings and looks to enter the BMW Championship in a very similar spot.

Steven Bowditch turned in a 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of The Barclays.

The Aussie is looking for his third try at the FedExCup Playoffs to be the charm. He missed the cut in his previous two efforts at The Barclays and was done. Today at Ridgewood Country Club, he opened bogey-free 5-under through 16 holes. Among his five birdies were rolls of 19'8" and 14'5" at the 10th and 13th holes, respectively. However, Bowditch bogeyed both the par-3 eighth, where he failed to get up and down from well left of the green, and the par-4 ninth to lose the top spot on the leaderboard. But overall, it was a solid day.

Steven Bowditch submitted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

Bowditch is poised to return to the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since 2011, but why not make a little more noise on the way there? He hit 14 greens in regulation at Sedgefield today and found an eagle (from 10'1" at the par-5 fifth hole) and four birdies. His longest of the latter set ranged 15'5" at teh par-4 eighth. The downside is that he three-putted for bogey from inside 10 feet at the par-5 15th and found water off the tee at the par-3 seventh, which he would bogey. Nevertheless, he signed his card sitting just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Steven Bowditch posted a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to end the tournament at 15-under 269.

The Aussie is on the bubble for a top-10 finish thanks in large part to an eagle from 13'7" on the par-5 17th. He also circled five birdies, two from outside 10 feet, and squared four bogeys on a colorful lap around TPC Deere Run. At the time of his posting, Bowditch was clinging to a position inside the top 10. If he remains in that spot, it would join his breakthrough win at the Valero Texas Open as his second of the 2013-14 season.

Steven Bowditch chased his opening 64 at the John Deere Classic with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round to post 11-under 131, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This was about as low as he was going to go, so his fantasy owners should be thrilled because you never know how he's going to deal with adversity. After opening with a hole-out for eagle from the rough six yards away at the par-5 10th, Bowditch added par saves from 13'4" and 10 feet at Nos. 12 and 13, respectively. He knocked in a 39-incher for birdie at the par-4 14th before suffering his only bogey of the round, that a 5 at 15 where he found trouble off the tee. The Aussie played the remainder in bogey-free 2-under with two birdies, the latter measuring 13'1" at the par-4 eighth. He hit 12 greens in regulation today.

Steven Bowditch submitted a 7-under-par 32-32=64 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic, finishing one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The Aussie failed to parlay his breakthrough win at the Valero Texas Open into a run of any kind, but this aligns with his career trajectory nonetheless. Since that fateful day at TPC San Antonio in late March, he had posted a red number just four times. Today's is the fifth and easily the lowest. Bowditch surrounded an eagle at the par-5 10th hole where he stuck his second to inside nine feet with seven birdies, including conversions from 18'6" and 11'10" at Nos. 11 and 13, respectively. He also squared two bogeys.

Steven Bowditch enters this week's Quicken Loans National ranked 55th in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie has hit a cold patch since the breakthrough victory at the Valero Texas Open. He's missed four straight cuts, and six of the last eight. Bowditch ranks 56th in driving distance which should really come in handy on the lengthy challenge of Congressional. Unfortunately, he also ranks 177th in strokes gained-putting, 158th in GIR percentage, and 113th in par breakers. Like many gamers expected, the win in Texas was more of an outlier, and did not lead to a breakout season that often accompanies a maiden win.

Steven Bowditch makes his way back to Fort Worth, Texas, for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Aussie has missed three of five cuts since his breakthrough victory at the Valero Texas Open. Bowditch finished T16 at Colonial in 2011 before missing the cut last year. Statistically, this doesn't look like the best fit as he currently ranks 175th in good drive percentage and 171st in par 4 scoring average.

Steven Bowditch has been removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Anytime a guy breaks through for his first win, he's going to undergo a shift in scheduling toward the busier. So, it's not too shocking that the Aussie scratched this week. He had played four in a row with the previously unscheduled Masters added just two weeks prior when he won in San Antonio.

Steven Bowditch twirled a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

You'd have understood if he was 10 swings higher in the wake of his breakthrough victory last week, but he managed to outbalance three bogeys with four birdies at the Golf Club of Houston today. His longest conventional conversion measured 22'2" for birdie at the par-4 10th, but he also jarred an 11-yarder from off the green for bogey at the par-4 fifth where he found water off the tee. The Aussie sits six strokes adrift of the overnight co-leaders.

Steven Bowditch secured his first PGA TOUR victory despite a 4-over-par 39-37=76 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open.

Wind was a major factor in everyone's final lap around TPC San Antonio and the Aussie wasn't immune. After a bogey on the par-5 second and a double bogey at the par-4 fourth, it looked like it may not be his day. To his credit, he fought back with two birdies and three bogeys over his final 14 holes to right the ship and post 8-under 280. Proximity had to be the key to his success this week, as he ranked fifth with a 1.636 putting average in spite of ranking 64th in strokes gained. The bigger story is what Bowditch had to overcome to reach this pinnacle. He has admitted in the past to battling clinical depression, making this victory all the sweeter. Perhaps ironic, it took a great deal of mental toughness to flat-out win. He finished one stroke clear of Daniel Summerhays and Will MacKenzie. With the win, Bowditch is exempt into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.
