Bowditch falters in final round
Monday, 1 October 2012
Australia's Steven Bowditch finished his week at the Chiquita Classic in underwhelming fashion, shooting one-over in his final round to finish in a tie for 30th.
Bowditch is well out of contention to finish in the top 25 on the web.com Tour, but did climb two spots to be number 122nd on the money list after completing the week at nine-under overall despite his final round of 73 in North Carolina.
However, in better news for the Queensland resident, Bowditch has now made three straight cuts on the Tour as he finds form in the latter stages of the season.
Scores of 68 and 67 had Bowditch in contention for a top-10 finish heading into the final round, only to card four bogeys on the back nine.
Bronson La'Cassie was the only other Australian to make the cut at The Club at Longview, and finished with a final-round one-under 71 to be seven-under overall.
La'Cassie held 99th spot on the money list, and is well short of reaching the top 25, which grants players a PGA Tour card for the 2013 season.
