C'mon Aussie!

C’mon Aussie!

Battling tough and windy conditions at the Valero Texas Open on Sunday, Steven Bowditch held on to capture his first PGA Tour victory. Despite missing a three-footer on the last hole, the 30-year-old Australian had enough of a cushion to still win by a stroke over Will MacKenzie, who has finished 6th or better in three of his last four starts, and Daniel Summerhays.

Bowditch shot a final-round, four-over 76 — the highest non-major score by a winner since Fred Couples at the 1983 Kemper Open. But, who cares, a win is a win at the end of the day.

Na, Na, Na, Na

Na, Na, Na, Na

For the second week in a row on the PGA Tour, Kevin Na was (unfairly) targeted and harassed by fans for his reputation of being a slow player.

During the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, spectators heckled Na, who teed off no. 10 on Friday, throughout the back nine at Bay Hill. Na was visibly frustrated and reacted to the taunting. Things finally hit a breaking point, and in the middle of the first fairway, he flagged down rules official Mark Russell.

Drop it like it's hot

Drop it like it’s hot

Despite not feeling his best health-wise, including a fever, Adam Scott fired a 10-under 62 in the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Wielding his long putter, it seemed like he made *everything.*

“Obviously I’m really thrilled with the start today,” said Scott in his post-round press conference. “It’s maybe a little surprising.  I don’t know where it came from, but the putter certainly got hot today.”

Snake charmer!
For a while, it looked like no one wanted to win in the final round of the Valspar Championship as the leaders got off to slow starts and at the same time, the contenders began to backup. Then, John Senden decided he was going to snare this victory for his first on the PGA Tour since 2006, beating out Kevin Na by one stroke.
