Golf Australia Express : April 2014
day before the Texas Open],” he said. “I was just going in there with a few different ideas, a few different movements in what I was doing. Call it coincidence, but I don’t think you can call it that, but all of a sudden I’m there (winning) straight away.” When revealing his struggle with depression in an illuminating feature story in 2009, Bowditch told a memorable tale about the time he was paired with Greg Norman in the final round of the 2000 Australian Open. Bowditch, then 17, says Norman barely spoke a word to him all day as the pair shot 75s and finished in a tie for sixth, but The Shark gave him a memorable lift home that evening in his private jet. Bowditch received many phone calls and well wishes from all corners after his PGA Tour breakthrough last week. One of them stuck out. “Greg called me after I finished,” he said. “I’m not sure where he was, he was in another part of the world and it was wonderful to hear from him. “He sounded thrilled and happy, and it was great.” Just a week after his Texas Open triumph, Bowditch failed to make a single birdie in the second round of the Houston Open — won by another maiden PGA Tour victor, Matt Jones. Bowditch shot a 78 and missed the cut. His rollercoaster hasn’t returned to the station yet, but at least he’s strapped in for the ride. Does the season’s greatest story have one last twist in its tale? We’ll know come Monday morning. Best of luck Bowdo.
