Steven Bowditch spun an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead with Kevin Kisner.
The Aussie absolutely refuses to rest, not that he'd sit out a lucrative WGC what with its guaranteed earnings, but he hasn't taken a week off since the break between the TOUR Championship and Presidents Cup. The road trips have been reflective in his scores and results, but he found whatever number wind you want to attribute to the burly fella in his debut in this week's tournament. Bowditch birdied the first hole, the last hole and seven others in between. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 13th where he squared a bogey, but he covered that with two birdies immediately before and two birdies immediately after. Nov 5 - 1:22 AM

Steven Bowditch ballooned to a 12-over-par 45-38=83 in today's third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and at 9-over 222 will not have a Sunday reservation at TPC Summerlin along with eight others.

Bowditch began his third round off the 10th tee, and went bogey-double bogey-6 en route to a first-nine 38. Things got worse for the Aussie, closing with a birdie-less inward half that included five bogeys, a double, and a quadruple bogey-8. Bowditch was one inside the cut-line (T48) thru 36 holes after opening in 68-71, but 12 players were T69 following two rounds, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Joining Bowditch on the pine for Sunday: 212--Hunter Stewart (in pro debut) ... 213--Davis Love III; Scott Brown; rookie Hiroshi Iwata ... 214--Whee Kim; Jin Park ... 216--Alex Prugh ... 217--Colt Knost.

Steven Bowditch recorded a 2-up victory over Jimmy Walker in Sunday singles at the Presidents Cup.

At least it ended with a conversion of relative note when Bowditch coaxed in his look at birdie from 11'3" at the last, but it probably shouldn't have even reached the par-5 finisher. Consider that Walker scored birdie-free 7-over on the 17 holes where he recorded a score -- he was conceded the par-5 15th -- and still won five holes today. Bowditch won four in a row mid-round and climbed to a 3-up lead after 14, but he was also over par at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in the finale. The Aussie went 1-2-0 in his debut in the competition. Walker submitted a disappointing 1-3-0 record in his first appearance. It's a huge point for the Internationals as they've drawn even at 12½ with five matches still underway.

Steven Bowditch readies for his Presidents Cup debut this week at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea.

The Aussie posted a career season in 2014-15 to grab the attention of team captain, Nick Price. His captain's pick was well deserved as he was next in line, ranking 11th in the qualification ranking. Bowditch has zero professional history in team formats, so he truly lands under the classification of wildcard this week.
Oct 5 - 8:53 PM

Steven Bowditch should be proud of his 1-under-par 36-33=69 in today's second round of the TOUR Championship.

After sneaking away with a 2-under 68 with only nine greens in regulation in the opener, Bowditch hit just 10 greens in regulation. Yet, he salvaged par seven times, including a 10-footer for a 4 at the 13th hole. His only miscue occurred at the par-5 ninth hole where he squared a double bogey. His most notable of three birdies came courtesy of a hole-out from the rough eight yards away at the par-3 second, but he also rolled in a conventional conversion from 19'10" at the par-4 14th. At 3-under 137, the Aussie is just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Sep 25 - 5:47 PM

In his debut at the TOUR Championship, Steven Bowditch shot 2-under-par 35-33=68.

It's a great score that looks even better when you consider that he hit only nine greens in regulation. He limited the damage to two bogeys, the first of which a result of a watered tee ball at the par-3 sixth holes. Bowditch also connected for four birdies, three of which from outside 11 feet. The highlights measured 37'7'" and 22'8" at the par-4 third and 16th holes, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 14'2" at the par-4 fifth. Given his propensity to fill the cup, it comes as no surprise that he was leading the field in strokes gained: putting at last check with a clip of 3.793.
Sep 24 - 4:16 PM

Steven Bowditch will make his first appearance at this week's TOUR Championship.

He's the rawest of the raw in the expected field of 29 at East Lake Golf Club this week. After putting a cap on a T41 at Conway Farms, Bowditch said the following of the host track for the season finale: "I've never seen it. Never really watched [the tournament]." Now, that doesn't mean he's not going to execute, and he's always a threat with a patented hot putter, but he should populate lineups only if you need the hit the flier who you think no one else will.
Sep 23 - 8:25 PM

With one of his two picks available, Presidents Cup captain Nick Price selected Steven Bowditch for the team comprised of Internationals.

The Aussie finished 11th in automatic qualifying, just a fraction of a point outside the top 10 who were locked in on Monday. Since emerging with victory at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship in late May, Bowditch is 8-for-11 with five top 25s. It's an amazingly consistent run for a guy who had been everything but throughout his emotional career. The 32-year-old will be making his debut in the biennial competition. He's 22nd in the FedExCup standings, so he'll stay warm in advance of the event scheduled for Oct. 8-11.

Steven Bowditch hung a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 on Plainfield Country Club in the final round of The Barclays to post 6-under 274, up 35 spots on the live leaderboard to tied 11th.

After opening in 71-67-72, Bowditch began the day at even-par (T46) and 11 adrift. Too far back to contend for his second win of the season (AT&T Byron Nelson) but seven off the pace of the overnight top 10. The latter may also seem a stretch, but the Aussie has already matched a career low this year with 62 in the first round of the Byron Nelson, and also shot 63 in round three of the WGC-Bridgestone just two starts ago. After carding 11 bogeys and a double thru his first 54 holes this week, Bowditch went blemish-free in the finale, circling four birdies at Nos. 1, 6, 10 and 17, and an eagle from 8'5" at the par-5 12th. The 32-year-old also rolled in a 17-footer for par at the last to keep his card spotless. Bowditch projects 19th in the FedExCup standings with play still in progress

Steven Bowditch put it in reverse at Firestone Country Club on Sunday, shooting a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in his concluding round at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

The Aussie, who played with eventual winner Shane Lowry in the penultimate group of the day, ended at 3-under 277 and fell back to T12. Trying to follow a 63 is never easy but Bowditch, who matched the low round of the day on Saturday, got off to a good enough start with an opening par and a birdie-4 at No.2. But he couldn't circle another par breaker after that and spent some cash on the back nine with a bogey at 10 and a double bogey-7 at the par-5 16th after finding water with his third shot.
Aug 9 - 6:32 PM

With a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, Steven Bowditch claimed sole possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 5-under 205.

Always so dangerous with the flat stick, Bowditch illustrated why today, although he had everything working. The Aussie split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at Firestone Country Club's South Course. He circled eight birdies, four conventionally from outside 12 feet, the longest stretching 37'4" at the par-4 ninth hole. Bowditch also recorded a zero-putt birdie from the fringe six yards away at the par-5 16th. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 13th where he failed to get up and down after missing the green on approach and settled for bogey. At last check, his strokes gained: tee-to-green for the round measured 4.531; his strokes gained: putting read 3.536. Now comes the hard part, especially after he followed three red numbers at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club last week with a Sunday 83. Then again, that's the story of his career, isn't it? It's the primary reason why he's always a better long-term own in our world.

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.
Jul 31 - 1:47 PM

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.
Jul 19 - 3:05 PM

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.
