Steven Bowditch Tweets Out A Caddie Call

Aussie Steven Bowditch is struggling through a rough patch on the PGA Tour. Ok, struggling might be an understatement as he’s missed cuts in 35 of his last 37 events. Its hard to fathom since he won the Byron Nelson Championship in 2015 and earned a spot on the President’s Cup.

But as we know, even pros can lose their way. In fact, most pros would require a padded cell to cope with the stout MC record , but Bow leans heavily on  self-deprecating humor to sooth the wounds–which makes him an easy mate to root for.

His latest bit involves posting a Tweet recruiting a caddie for the John Deere Classic this week. Others have posted caddie invites but its normally part of a sponsor promotion. This is all Bowditch with no ulterior motive other than having some fun.

GolfDigest’s Alex Myers provides the funny details.

This made me giggle–2pm Tues start, finish Friday. 1% chance Sunday.

One responder asked whether he could also caddie for Bowditch at next week’s Open Championship if the Aussie happens to win this week and qualify for the season’s third major. “Without doubt. Not even a question,” Bowditch replied.


Here’s the winning submission.

And a post after the Tuesday practice round.

Man, how much are you rooting for Bow this week? I am all in. Go Bow!
