Steven Bowditch had no shortage of birdies as he finished with a 5-under 64 on Sunday in the AT&T Byron Nelson, winning his second career title in his adopted home of Texas.
Bowditch scored an amazing 27 birdies throughout the course of the tournament, becoming the seventh play ever to lead the competition in all four rounds. By the end, he had developed a four-stroke lead as he finished on 18-under.
Tied for second place at 14-under were Charley Hoffman, Jimmy Walker and Scott Pinckney. Zach Johnson was just behind at 13-under.
Masters champion and local fans’ favorite Jordan Spieth finished his final round with an even-par 69, leaving him 7-under for the tournament.
Dustin Johnson, who was playing with Bowditch in the final round, briefly overtook the eventual winner before throwing his lead away with a quadruple bogey 8 on the par-4 sixth.
