There were four people clapping.
''Hey, it's just golf,'' Bowditch said with a shrug.

Bad golf, but golf nonetheless. Bowditch shot 84 on Sunday in his final round at Doral, his fourth straight round in the 80s. He was 37 over for the week, his 72-hole score of 325 the highest ever recorded in a World Golf Championships event. His score was so bad that a young volunteer who was tasked with following Bowditch around with a portable scoreboard was told not to post any numbers, and no one questioned that logic.
''I think there was four dozen golf balls at the start of the week in my locker,'' Bowditch said. ''And I'm down to my last one.''
''I shot 37 over par and still made a paycheck,'' Bowditch said. ''All's not that bad.''
Not a bad paycheck, either. He'll earn $48,000 ($65,000), despite being the first player to shoot four rounds of 80 or more in a PGA Tour event, officials said, since Mike Dunaway posted four consecutive 81s in the 1983 Panasonic Las Vegas Pro-Celebrity Classic - a five-round event. The previous high score in a WGC stroke-play event was 323, by Huang Ming-jie at Shanghai in 2013.
