Tie me Kangaroo down sport, Aussie Steve Bowditch easily won the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons Resort. Winning this event is almost an Australian tradition, Adam Scott and Jason Day have both won in recent times.
Steve won the AT&T Byron Nelson with a -18 under par tournament total, a four shot victory, following his final round -5 under par 64.
Having his picture taken here again was a surreal moment for Steve and wife Amanda, they held their wedding reception here almost four years ago, and they have no plans to move away from the “No Tax” State;
“Pretty surreal feeling, taking photos on the green today was definitely the second best time I’ve had on that green.”
“I can’t see us moving anywhere else.”
“When it’s good, it’s good, when it’s not, I’m just trying to hang on.”
“Most of the time, it’s dry and it’s windy, so I think that is a little bit of an advantage for Australians, so to speak.”
“It’s just the way we grow up. But this week, I’m not sure. I guess everything clicked and it was my time to win.”
Amanda added her remarks about the wedding;
“It was fun to have them celebrate the wedding and it’s equally as special to have them celebrate this win.”
“It was a special day in our lives and this one is right there with it.”
There was a three-way tie for second place, all at -14 under par, Charley Hoffman, Jimmy Walker and Scott Pinckney.
Zach Johnson shot a -6 under par 63 to finish alone in fifth place at -13 under;
The hometown favorite with the gallery, and Masters champion Jordan Spieth stayed at -7 under par after his last round of even-par 69, T30;
“I really tried to soak it in today, I was getting frustrated this week just trying so hard, which is what I’ve done in past years as well. I don’t know if that’s going to stop in the future.”
