Bowditch finishes three behind Lee

Australia’s Steven Bowditch has finished three shots behind tournament winner Danny Lee at The Greenbrier Classic.

The Novocastrian carded a final round 67 for a 10-under-par total of 270, for a tie of 13th.

Lee parred the second hole of a four-man playoff for his first PGA Tour victory.

The South Korean-born New Zealander earned $1.2 million and became the ninth first-time winner on the tour this season.

Lee, David Hearn, Kevin Kisner and Robert Streb were tied at 13-under after four rounds on the Old White TPC course in West Virginia.

Lee and Hearn both made birdie putts on the first playoff hole on the par-3 18th, eliminating Streb and Kisner.

Hearn then drove behind a tree on the par-5 17th and made bogey. Lee reached the green in three shots and two-putted for par.

Australia’s Cameron Percy had a disappointing final round 73 to finish nine shots behind the winner for a tie of 60th.
