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. Jan 11 - 12:37 AM

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.
Jan 9 - 7:42 PM

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.
Jan 8 - 9:34 PM

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.
Jan 7 - 11:01 PM

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 (, 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.
Jan 5 - 8:11 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
