IRVING, Texas (AP) - Steven Bowditch rode his best birdie binge on the PGA Tour to a 5-under 64 and a four-shot victory Sunday in the AT&T Byron Nelson, winning in the Australian's adopted home for his second career title - both in Texas.

Bowditch, who got married at the resort next to the TPC Four Seasons five years after attempting suicide at his Dallas home while battling depression in 2006, had 27 birdies while becoming the seventh player to lead all four rounds of the event. He finished at 18-under 259 on the rain-altered layout.

Charley Hoffman (65), Texan Jimmy Walker (66) and Scott Pinckney (66) tied for second at14 under. Zach Johnson shot 63 to finish alone in fifth at 13 under.

Hometown favorite and Masters champion Jordan Spieth finished 7 under after an even-par 69.
