From the PGA Site. I can’t tell it any better than they do:
IN A DITCH: The rookie year of Stephen Bowditch is not only miserable, it’s peculiar.
The 22-year-old Australian, who earned his card through the Nationwide Tour, has yet to earn a dime in seven starts. Worse yet, he has only completed three tournaments.
Bowditch has been disqualified three times—from the Sony Open, FBR Open in Phoenix and the Nissan Open, where he opened with a 78 and walked off the course after nine holes without telling anyone. He withdrew after one round of Tucson after shooting 78.
He missed the cut at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic at 12-over 300, and at Pebble Beach after rounds of 79-79-80.
