Pros Attack Writer On Social Media For Negative Article

Playing golf for a living is a tough racket. On the PGA Tour, players know going into a tournament that the chances of beating 145 of the best players in the world aren’t very high. Now, add into that probability a guy who is struggling mightily with his game and can’t seem to right the ship and you have Steven Bowditch’s 2016 season in a nutshell.

The 33-year-old Aussie has taken his lumps in stride, however. Knowing his game wasn’t where it needs to be while competing at the highest level, Bowditch repeatedly poked fun at himself and generally was a good sport about some of the needling he took on social media. That changed earlier this week when posted a story titled, “The Worst Golfer on the PGA Tour Last Season Still Made Nearly Half a Million Dollars.”

Some of those peers whom Bowditch referenced chimed in as well.
