  • Steven Bowditch, PGA Tour pro, arrested for 'extreme' DUI
Friday, February 03, 2017

Updated: Steven Bowditch took to Twitter to address his DUI arrest, saying: "Life is about choices. Last night I made a very poor one. I'm very sorry to those I have disappointed. I must and will, do better."

PGA Tour pro Steven Bowditch was arrested by Scottsdale police early Friday morning and charged with a DUI.

Sergeant Ben Hoster, a spokesperson for the Scottsdale Police Department, confirmed the news to GOLF.com.

The 33-year-old Bowditch was reportedly found asleep at the wheel of a white pickup truck stopped at a traffic light after a fellow driver reported seeing the vehicle swerving down the road. According to police, a breathalyzer registered Bowditch's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at .204%, which qualifies as an "extreme" DUI.

Bowditch, a two-time Tour winner from Australia, is in town for the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale, though he missed the cut after back-to-back rounds of 74.

A spokesperson for the PGA Tour declined to comment, while calls to The Players Group Inc, which represents Bowditch, were not answered.
