Steven Bowditch just made a hole-in-one and Boo Weekley looks ready to run up his bar tab

October 11, 2016

The 2015-'16 PGA Tour season is one Steven Bowditch would like to forget. After winning the 2015 Byron Nelson and playing for the Internationals at the Presidents Cup last fall, the Aussie struggled to 179th in the FedEx Cup standings during a campaign that included just one top 25 in a full-field event. But perhaps, the tide has turned.

Two days before the start of a new PGA Tour season at the Safeway Open, Bowditch made a hole-in-one during a practice round at Silverado in Napa, Calif. It seems he instantly had two regrets, though: First, he didn't save the ace for when it really counts. Second, he did it while playing with Boo Weekley, who judging by the photo Bowditch tweeted seems ready to run up a bar tab at Bowditch's expense:

Smylie Kaufman will be glad to hear that the beer of choice for this group appears to be Natty Light. As for that second hashtag, that's referring to Tiger Woods missing out on the potential party. Just the day before, Bowditch had offered to play practice rounds with Woods in a humorous attempt to keep him from withdrawing from the event:

Nice try, Steven. But we think you undersold yourself.
