Valero Texas Open - Final Round

Yesterday at TPC San Antonio, staffer Steven Bowditch maintained his lead and came away with a victory at the Valero Texas Open, the first of his PGA Tour career. The 30-year-old Australian overcame windy conditions on Sunday to finish with a one-stroke victory at eight-under 280, becoming the third Australian to win on the PGA Tour in the last six weeks.

Bowditch, who is more commonly known as “Bowdo” around the TOUR, finished Round 4 with a score of 76, enough to secure his first win in 110 career starts on the PGA Tour. The victory not only earned him $1,116,000, the largest payday of his professional career, but it also secured him a spot in this year’s Masters Tournament.

“Iโ€™m over the moon. I really canโ€™t believe it,โ€ said Bowditch. โ€œI guessed it just happened to be my week. I haven’t thought about Augusta; the only time I played it has been on the Play Station. So I think I know a few of the breaks. I’m excited.โ€

Bowditch, who has battled with severe depression throughout his 13-year professional career, was ranked 339th in the world headed into this weekโ€™s event. His previous best finish was in 2013 at The Greenbrier Classic, where he finished tied for second, earning $415,800.

Bowditch played a Classic XL (7.5ยฐ) driver with a Miyazaki Indigo shaft (56X), 588 Forged MB irons (3-PW), and a set of 588 Forged RTG wedges with ROTEX face milling (50ยฐ, 54ยฐ, 60ยฐ). We are very proud of Steven’s accomplishments and cannot wait to see him next week at Augusta!
