Worst golfer on TOUR fools media, pretends to use “game-improvement” irons from 2006

Everybody loves (or should love, anyway) Steven Bowditch in the Twitterverse. Owner of the confirmed Best Eyebrow Game on Tour is thoroughly entertaining and profoundly accessible in the social media sphere.

Unfortunately, if you’re a fan of the Bowdinator, you know his play has been historically awful since shortly after winning the 2015 Byron Nelson. Indeed, a number of articles hit the wires at the end of last year cataloguing how statistically horrendous the Australian’s play had been.

Bowdo missed 15 of 26 cuts last year and struggled to break 80. And he started this season with four missed cuts in a row.

So it was shocking when Bowditch loaded up his bag with equipment of a 10-year vintage, as was reported by numerous outlets at last week’s CareerBuilder Challenge.

See? 2006 Callaway Big Bertha Fusion irons in Bowditch’s bag.

Bowditch, however, got the last laugh, tweeting that he indeed had not deviated from his standard arsenal. What a filthy trick to play on the WITB obsessed!

And while it would have been a damn fine story to see Steven Bowditch play well with clubs that were made for high-handicappers 10 years ago, if you have a soul, so you to be happy to hear that Bowditch made the cut and finished tied for 58th at the CareerBuilder.
