PGA Tour pro Steven Bowditch was reportedly arrested early Friday morning by Scottsdale Police and charged with Extreme DUI. In Arizona, Extreme DUI is defined as having a blood alcohol concentration of .15 or more.

Fox 10 Phoenix had the report:

According to police, 33-year-old Steven David Bowditch was bonded out of the Scottsdale City Jail on Friday morning.

The incident, according to police, began to unfold at approximately 1:10 a.m., when a citizen motorist called the police to report an impaired driver that was swerving all over the road in a white pickup. The pickup, according to police, was later found at the intersection of Scottsdale Road and Lincoln, where it sat through two green traffic signals without moving.

According to police, officers had to wake Bowditch up, where he was then removed from the truck.

Bowditch played the second round of the Waste Managment Phoenix Open on Friday, but shot 74-74 and missed the cut. This was the two-time PGA Tour winner’s 11th missed cut in his last 12 events. 


Bowditch released the following statement via the PGA Tour on Friday night:

“I would like to apologize to my family, friends and supporters, as well as the PGA Tour and Waste Management Phoenix Open for the incident reported today. As I intend to fully cooperate with the authorities, I will not be making further comment at this stage.”
