Steven Bowditch - as good as his word

BY Bruce Young | US PGA Tour | 2014 US Masters | General | 14 Apr 2014

Australian golfer, Steve Bowditch, promised the many members of iseekgolf.com that he would advance the legend of The Longest Travelled Ball (TLTB) by putting it into play during practice at Augusta National and he proved well and truly up to his word when doing so on Wednesday in a practice round with friend, Boo Weekley.

Bowditch, a long time visitor to and friend of iseekgolf, used the ball at the par three 16th and the par three 12th (see photos) and Weekley, too, had a hit, adding further to the growing story of a golf ball that has travelled Australia and the world extensively since first put into play more than three years ago.

The future of the ball will undergo a decision making process, some wishing it to continue its journey but others, realising that it has now reached the peak of its career by being exposed to the sacred grounds of Augusta National, believing that its ongoing use should be as the major trophy in the iseekgolf.co national championship.

A special thank you to Bowditch, who during his impressive debut at the Masters, was still able to take a few moments to see the fun in all of this and take a few photos of the special moment.

Bowditch, who only gained access to the Masters two weeks ago, finished tied for 26th.
