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). May 28 - 2:19 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 9 - 7:56 PM

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.
Jan 5 - 8:05 PM

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.
