The life of a tour pro could be quite stressful at times, but when the worst player on the tour takes home nearly a million dollars, life gets good pretty quick!
Aussie Steve Bowditch often makes fun of himself due to his recent bad form on the tour but even for a man that finishes 169th on the money list, he still managed to earn $458,891 ($596,558aud) last season.
In 26 total starts in 2015-16, Bowditch failed to break 80 on 12 separate occasions, finishing his season with a cumulative score of 214 over par. That's over double to his closest competitor Brandon Todd with a cumulative score of 75 over par and miss 20 consecutive cuts.
Bowditch’s Tour wins in 2014 and '15 earned him spots in the no-cut WGCs that ensure a paycheck. Those three starts alone helped him rake in a cumulative $158,500 ($206,050aud), around 35% of his season earnings.
Some of Bowditch best work on Twitter is below. He is definitely one of the best tour players to follow for his Aussie larikin sense of humor and his comical look at life as a PGA tour pro.
