Don’t beat yourself up, fantasy players. Steven Bowditch didn’t see this coming either.
Dating back to mid January, Bowditch had missed nine of 13 cuts before stepping on the gas Sunday and claiming a four-shot win at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Without so much as a top-10 finish in that stretch, he wasn’t exactly trending coming into this week, a fact he won’t argue.
Asked if he changed anything coming into this week, he laughed: “No. Run out of money.
“It’s basically the way my career has been my whole life,” he said. “You know, I guess when it’s good, it’s good and when it’s not, I’m just trying to hang on and make some cuts.”
But to be fair, he didn’t see it coming last time either and he still claimed a one-shot win at last year’s Valero Texas Open. Don’t think having a victory under his belt made him more comfortable on Sunday.
“I wasn’t really at ease,” Bowditch said. “I was more like a duck on a pond. My insides were moving a mile a minute. Just cruising on the surface.”
