+3 in the third round won't make for a strong finish overnight.

He's been pretty consistently around that end of the leaderboard the last year or two in what starts he has.
From the looks of it that's a course you don't want to be playing in you can't keep the ball on the planet.
Ogivly had 77 with 3 birds and an eagle and Scott had 73 with 6 birds today.

My long term guest for the past two summers played the Womens European Tour for 7 years, has had the past three years out doing other things. We have had some great conversations about golfing of course, not to forget the best flaming coaching money can't buy on my part. The attrition rate on tour is harsh. The grind of playing your best golf, every time is unrelenting. She would go to the Australian Open and catch up with her friends and past  and new golfers coming through because there is a bond formed in this competitive furnace.

 

The PGA is not for the faint hearted, even among us amateurs the gap between winners and losers is marked with very different game qualities. Bowdo has been a survivor on tour and been through the ups and downs. He will persist and still enjoy the game and support of the rest of us having a go.

Bowditch hires 16-year-old from Twitter to caddie for the week

 

 

Say this for Steven Bowditch: he's got a good sense of humor about it all.

 

Professionally, it's been a rough couple years for the Australian PGA Tour player. He's missed the cut in all five Tour events he's entered in 2018. He made just two of 27 cuts in 2017, his best finish a T58 at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Add in the end of his 2016 season — he missed 19 cuts, including five in a row to finish — and you'll get a sense of what Bowditch has been through since winning the AT&T Byron Nelson during a strong 2015 season where he made more than $3 million in earnings.

 

It's understandable, then, that Bowditch is looking for a shake-up at this week's John Deere Classic: He's offering his bag up to the public. On Twitter.

 

The post instantly drew plenty of attention, earning more than 150 replies by Tuesday morning. Plenty were tongue-in-cheek. "Can I use a push cart?" one potential looper asked. "Nope. I already asked," Bowditch replied. Plenty of others were earnest, though, from local college players to golf fans looking for a few days away from the office.

 

The catch, of course, is that a missed cut doesn't earn anyone — player or caddie — a paycheck for the week. But that doesn't mean they'll be walking away empty-handed. "Payment: all leftover gloves and balls are yours," Bowditch concluded with a winking emoji.

 

"That's a rip off," one particularly biting user replied. "You'll have no balls left."

But Bowditch is used to this sort of cutting commentary by now. He's leaning into it. "Roll the dice," he replied.

UPDATE: Bowditch has found his man: 16-year-old Elias Francque.

Pity we couldn't get Mouldy (or OB) to give him a hand.   I'm sure they would sort his game out pretty quick.   ;)  :P

Well that is the gig for me next year. Get a few rounds and beers in and talk golf with Bowdo as we amble around the courses.
