Past champion Steven Bowditch returns to TPC Four Seasons Resort for a home game at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson in Irving, Texas.
Bowditch lapped the field here during the rain-soaked 2015 edition, beating the field by four strokes. The Aussie lives in the area and even got married at the resort in 2011. Despite his local knowledge, he arrived that year with a 1-for-4 record with a T60 being his previous best. That was the second-career victory for Bowditch, with the other also coming in Texas at the 2014 Valero Texas Open. The 33-year-old is a lively sleeper in deep formats based on his knowledge of the course, but he also enters the week with 12 straight missed cuts in individual stroke-play events. May 15 - 6:03 PM

Steven Bowditch heads home to Texas ahead of this week's Shell Houston Open, hoping to break out of a eight-event slide.

The transplanted Aussie has hoisted both of his PGA TOUR trophies in his (now) home state of Texas. Those wins came at the 2014 Valero Texas Open and 2015 AT&T Byron Nelson. Perhaps a little home cooking is all that's needed to break out of his current funk, arriving with eight straight missed cuts to his name. On the down side, this week's venue hasn't been the source of success for Bowditch in the past, posting a 1-for-6 record with just a T56 in 2013. Gamers can continue to hold off with Bowditch but if there is ever to take a chance on the Aussie, it will be in the state of Texas.

With rounds of 70-70-69=209, World No. 287 Steven Bowditch made the scheduled 54-hole cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge by two shots, his first made cut since T70 (of 74 players) at the 2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic back in June.

The 33-year-old also played four rounds at the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone in July but finished 58th (last place) on 28-over 82-72-80-74=308. His 2-under 70 in R1 was just his second sub-par round in his last 32 laps, so the 2-time PGA TOUR winner has to be encouraged.

Steven Bowditch waited until the last minute to withdraw from this week's Sony Open in Hawaii, citing an undisclosed injury. Kevin Tway will take his place in the field. UPDATE: Bowditch returned to action January 19th at the CareerBuilder Challenge and finds himself 4-under 140 after two days, good for T49 on the leaderboard

Bowditch was scheduled to get started at 12:30 p.m. local time but PGA TOUR Media alerted their Twitter followers of the WD at 11:58 a.m. The Aussie was set to make his first start of 2017, and first start since becoming a father, as well. The two-time PGA TOUR winner posted an 0-for-4 record during the fall schedule. Bowditch is very lively and active on Twitter, so gamers should keep an eye on his account for any additional details. In the meantime, we'll have to wait a little longer for him to snap out of his slump of 10 straights missed cuts. UPDATE: Bowditch updated fans on Twitter with a message stating, "I wasn't kidnapped. Back soreness, didn't feel ready. Sure it's fine. Precautionary. Wrong to play a few then WD IMO. Hope @KevinTway wins!"

Two-time PGA TOUR winner Steven Bowditch is in Las Vegas for his fifth Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

In his last start at the Safeway Open, the 33-year-old was the worst finisher in the 144-man field at 13-over 78-79=157, missing the cut by 16 shots. Dating to last season, that's his sixth straight MC (eight of last 10) and now has 24 consecutive rounds of par or worse. At last year's Shriners, the transplanted Texan was the worst finisher of those that made the 36-hole cut with a 80/MDF (68-71-83). Last season, he finished 179th in the FedExCup standings with 15 missed cuts in 26 events and one top 10 -- T10 at the 32-man no-cut Hyundai TOC. Bowditch is in the final season of full-exempt status from his win at the 2015 Byron Nelson.

Steven Bowditch plays his sixth consecutive John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run.

The 33-year-old ended 2015 No. 72 in the Official World Golf Ranking and checks in this week at No. 151. After finishing a career-best 20th in the FedExCup standings last season, he limps into the Deere at 173rd. The Flower Mound, Texas, resident is exempt thru the 2016-17 season from his second TOUR win at the 2015 AT&T Byron Nelson. He's a dismal 11-for-24 this season with two top 25s, one top 10 (T10, Hyundai TOC). The Aussie is 3-for-5 at the par-71 TPC Deere Run, missing the cut last year and in 2012, and cashing T11/2014, T12/2013, and T38 on debut in 2011. His career scoring average (16 rounds) is a more-than respectable 68.44.

Steven Bowditch has secured a paycheck for the second straight week following a 2-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, posting 3-under 137 at halftime.

The Aussie missed half of the possible fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. It was work around the greens that helped him survive and advance, getting up-and-down a perfect 8-for-8 of his missed greens. The lone blemish of the round came in the form of a three-putt on the par-3 13th hole, as he landed 55'7" from the hole on approach, and couldn't convert the 6'3" attempt for par. Through two rounds, Bowditch has gained 4.220 strokes over the field with 97 percent of those strokes being gained with the flat stick in round one. The Aussie will need to find that spark again over the weekend if he wants to remain in contention.

Defending champ Steven Bowditch back-pedaled to a 5-over-par 38-37=75 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson and at 3-over 213, will not have a Sunday tee time.

Bowditch was one of 17 players at T67 after two rounds had been completed so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. He made the 36-hole cut on the number after opening in 68-70, but stumbled to two birdies against three bogeys and two double bogey-6s in the third round. On the plus side, he entered the week off five consecutive missed cuts with a cumulative 50-over-par during the stretch, so getting to the third round was a small step in the right direction. Joining the Aussie on the pine for Sunday are: 209- Andrew Landry; OQer Conrad Shindler ... 210- Derek Fathauer; Cameron Percy ... 211- Greg Owen; OQer Lance Lopez ... 212- Marc Turnesa ... 213- Andrew Loupe.

In his fifth appearance at TPC Four Seasons Resort, Steven Bowditch won the 2015 AT&T Byron Nelson by four after posting a tournament record 18-under 259 with rounds of 62-68-65-64.

The Flower Mound, Texas, resident, a pre-tourney 300/1 outright last year, led or co-led after each round en route to his second TOUR title in his 146th career start. He claimed his maiden trophy at the 2014 Valero Texas Open and when defending in 2015, shot 8-over 80-72=152 and missed the cut by two. Since last year's win, the 32-year-old has made 28 starts and has one top 10, a T10 at the 32-man Hyundai TOC. He's 8-for-15 for the season and ranks 171st in the FedExCup standings.

Steven Bowditch preps for his fourth appearance at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Bowditch has taken some time off since his missed cut at the Masters. It was his third straight missed cut. He's signed for seven round in the 80s over his last 12 rounds of play. To say he's out of form would be an understatement. To his credit, he was dealing with some nagging injuries and dental issues during that stretch. With three weeks of rest on his side, perhaps he finds a spark this week as he returns to Quail Hollow Club, a venue where he owns a 3-for-3 career record.

Steven Bowditch settled for a 1-under-par 34-38=72 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to finish up his second appearance at 15-under 277, good for a five-way tie for 10th.

After opening in 69-67-69, the Bowditch train ran out of steam, back-pedaling from T6 to begin the finale. He bogeyed the first after missing the green and nearly bogeyed the second, but dropped the six-footer for par. Three birdies over his next four holes, each from inside six feet seemingly had the Aussie back on track, but then he three-banged the seventh from 38 feet for bogey-5. He bounced-back with birdie-2 at eight from 14'10" but then missed an 8'10" scoring try at the ninth to turn 2-under. Holes 10-14 saw no realistic opportunities and then a wayward second at the par-5 15th led to bogey-6. The 32-year-old erased yet another three-putt bogey at 17 (from 69 feet) with an eight-footer at the last for his fifth birdie of the day on 14 greens in regulation. His T10 on Maui is his first top 10 since his win in May at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Steven Bowditch bobbed and weaved to a 4-under-par 35-34=69 on day three of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 14-under 205, up one place on the live leaderboard to T5.

The 32-year-old began the day on 10-under (T6) after opening in 69-67. Bogey-free on day one was followed by a lone bogey in round two, but he squared three on Saturday, each set up by errant tee shots. His last retreat came at the par-5 15th, but he responded with three straight birdies to wrap his round on a high note. Bowditch found just 10 greens in regulation in the third round, but converted on seven, two from between 11 and 15 feet, for a sterling 1.300 putts per GIR.

Steven Bowditch crafted a 6-under-par 34-33=67 in round two of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and sits T6 on the live leaderboard, up one spot on the day.

Bowditch's bogey at the par-3 second today (missed 5'7" par putt) is his only blemish thru 36 holes, T3 in that stat, chasing bogey-free Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed who are playing the 18th. He erased his dropped shot with birdie at the par-5 fifth, and then ripped off five straight on Nos. 8-12, including a 31-foot bomb at the 11th and a 20'3" roll later at the par-4 14th for his final tally of the day. The Aussie currently ranks second in the field in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative mark of 3.721, and the flat stick has him at 10-under 136 after two rounds.

Steven Bowditch crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-35=69 in the opening round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Aussie striped 13 (of 15) fairways to put himself in prime scoring position all day. The highlight of the round came on the par-5 fifth where Bowditch rolled in a birdie from downtown, 49'5" if you're measuring at home. Gamers should note this is the exact same opening-round score as last year. He went on to finish T22 after a disappointing 1-over 73 derailed him in round two.

Nine players in the 32-man Hyundai Tournament of Champions are returning for a second consecutive year, including Steven Bowditch after a T22 (of 34) in last year's offering.

The transplanted Texan booked his second trip to Kapalua with a four-shot triumph at the AT&T Byron Nelson in Irving, Texas. He rode that win to a career-best 20th in the final FedExCup standings and capped it with T12 at the 28-man TOUR Championship, nine back of champion Jordan Spieth. Two weeks later he went 1-2-0 in his Presidents Cup debut and then played four straight to open the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season posting: CUT (Frys.com), 80/MDF (Shriners), 71 (of 77) at the CIMB, and T40 (of 77) at the WGC-HSBC. Three events overseas netted two missed cuts and a 30th (of 30) at the Nedbank Golf Challenge where he finished 38 shots back of the winner after rounds of 77-78-77-75.
