Steven Bowditch's final round may be an indication of what's to expect this afternoon from the leaders.
Bowditch birdied the par-5 last at Annandale to shoot 62, climbing more than 50 spots on the leaderboard. He is currently tied for ninth.
The Aussie entered the event 130th in FedExCup standings, and a high finish would go a long way toward securing a spot in the all-important top 125.
Bowditch first qualified for the TOUR in 2006 but battled a bout of serious depression that derailed his game. In that year, he played in 22 events but only made two cuts. He made it back to the TOUR this year after finishing in the top 25 of last year's Nationwide Tour money list.
This year, Bowditch has made the cut in 11 of 19 events, including a top-10 finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
