Bowditch in hunt


AUSTRALIAN Steven Bowditch and Englishman Justin Rose have stormed up the leaderboar­d at the Bridgeston­e Invitation­al in Ohio with a pair of seven-under-par 63s yesterday.

Bowditch shot into a tie for fourth place at five-under after the third round, but his round of the week was matched by Rose who shares the lead at nine-under 201.
