Bryce Molder painted a bogey-free 9-under-par 30-31=61 in today's second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach halftime on 7-under 133, up 121 places on the live leaderboard to T13 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Molder's 61 was tied by Zach Johnson for low rounds of the day.
The 37-year-old was 0-for-3 at the Sony entering the week with three missed cuts, the last of which was in 2010. Inclusive of his first-round 72 this week (four birdies, six bogeys), he had not broken 70 and had a scoring average of 72.14. The Arkansas native broke through in a huge way, circling nine birdies on seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 4.423 SG: Putting at last check. His conventional split featured three bombs from outside of 29 feet, highlighted by a 56'3" birdie-3 at the sixth, and also chipped in for birdie at the par-4 second from 40'7" away. This is Molder's career low on TOUR in his 805th career round, previously 62 in R2 of the 2010 Crowne Plaza Invitational. Jan 13 - 5:12 PM

Georgia Tech alum Bryce Molder soared inside the top 10 of the leaderboard at The RSM Classic following a 5-under-par 34-31=65 while taking on Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course, finding himself at 10-under 132, four off the lead entering the weekend.

Molder found just eight (of 14) fairways for the second day in a row, and again he walked off the course with just one bogey on the card. As usual, the strength of his game was the flat stick as he splashed home four putts from outside 10 feet, two of them from outside 20 feet. The 37-year-old gained 2.578 strokes putting today. Molder is making his first appearance at the RSM since his debut in the 2011 edition where he finished T11. His putter is what makes him dangerous, but he'll need to tidy up the ball-striking over the weekend if he wants to truly contend by week's end.

Bryce Molder makes his way back to this week's Deutsche Bank Championship for his sixth look at TPC Boston.

Molder is 3-for-5 at TPC Boston, with a ninth-place finish in 2012 being the clear highlight. He enters the week ranked 94th in the FedExCup race, but only the top 70 will advance onto Crooked Stick for next week's BMW Championship. Molder sits outside the top 130 in strokes gained off-the-tee and strokes gained approach-the-green but falls inside the top 15 in both short-game metrics. The 37-year-old will need to boost his tee-to-green play this week if he wants to a true shot at contention by week's end.

Bryce Molder conjured up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the Barracuda Championship but with a two-day total of 5 points, missed the cut by 2 points.

A total of 81 players from a field of 132 made the 36-hole cut with 7 points so a second cut of low 70 and ties will come after 54 holes. For his part, Molder was the highest up the odds-maker's food chain at a pre-tourney 33/1 outright to miss the weekend. He tallied six points in R2 with three birdies and an eagle-3 (bouncing off his partner's ball, video link below) against three bogeys, but couldn't make up enough ground from minus 1 point in R1. The MC snaps a streak of nine consecutive made cuts for the 37-year-old that featured five top-25 finishes, three for top 10s. Joining Molder with early exits include: 6 points- Luke List; Will Wilcox; Andres Gonzales; Lee McCoy; Chris Stroud ... 5 points- Stuart Appleby; 2009 champ John Rollins ... 4 points- John Senden; 2007 champ Steve Flesch; Andres Romero ... 3 points- defending champ J.J. Henry.

Bryce Molder conjured up a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to finish off his seventh appearance on 8-under 272, down one on the live leaderboard to T10.

The 37-year-old was the first-round leader after a bogey-free 64. He followed it with 69-70-69. The Georgia Tech alum began the final frame on 7-under (T9) but mustered just two birdies on 10 greens in regulation against a lone bogey at the par-3 13th after putting his tee ball into the water. He limited the damage there to one however, dropping a 16-footer. Molder also holed nine-foot par putts on 15 and 17 and should hang on for his fifth top 10 of the season in 19 starts. He posted a dismal -2.465 in SGTTG in R4 but gained 3.628 strokes with the flat stick.

First-round and overnight (overnight) leader Bryce Molder stalled out to a 1-under-par 30-39=69 in the weather-delayed second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, down two on the live leaderboard to T3.

Molder returned on Saturday morning with 59 others and had three holes remaining to complete his second round. He played them in bogey-par-bogey to post 7-under 64-69=133, one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Webb Simpson. The 37-year-old led by one after 18 holes following an opening bogey-free 64 and was his first lead after any round on TOUR this season in his 19th start. In fact, he was blemish-free thru 29 holes, but played his final seven holes in birdie-less 4-over.

Bryce Molder completed 15 holes at 3-under-par, to reach 9-under on the week, before darkness suspended play for the day. He will return to the course Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. CT to close out the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. UPDATE: R2 resumed as scheduled at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

Molder started the day atop the leaderboard and showed no signs of letting up today. He circled birdies in five of his first eight holes to extend his aggregate to 11-under. The first two birdies come on putts from outside 11 feet, but the final birdie was the big whopper, holing out from the greenside bunker on the par-3 eighth hole. His fire got extinguished on the back nine, particularly on the par-4 12th hole where he took four shots just to reach the green and then two-putted from 4'6" to swallow a double-bogey, his first blemish of the week. The Georgia Tech alum currently ranks first in strokes gained tee to green this week and will now sleep on a one-stroke lead before returning tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. to close out the second round.

Bryce Molder fired out of the gates with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 29-35=64 in the opening round of this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Molder kicked off his week on the back nine and landed seven of nine greens en route to nine straight pars. His longest putt made on the back nine was a 3'10" roll. The fun began on the inward nine, as he figured out the greens and started to hole every putt. Molder's first putt made from outside four feet came at the par-4 sixth in the form of an 11'3" birdie and he proceeded to close out his round with three more splashes from outside 10 feet, two of them from outside 19 feet. Molder entered the week with under-par rounds in nine of his last 11 rounds, and he continued that great play today as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and kept a clean card.

Bryce Molder signed for a bogey-free 2-under-par 33-35=68 after the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 11-under 199.

Molder began his third frame in solo seventh on 9-under after opening in 66-65. He's currently in a five-way T7 after circling just two on 13 greens in regulation. The 37-year-old birdied the third and the sixth, the latter from 18'9" and elsewhere had 16 pars, including 12 straight to end his lap. He missed birdie from 4'5" at the par-5 seventh in his only other legit scoring chance

Bryce Molder made a move at the AT&T Byron Nelson following a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during the second round to submit a score of 9-under 131 at the halfway mark.

Molder arrived on the heels of top 15s in three of his last four starts and he continues to play well through two rounds. Most of his damage has been done with the flat stick, gaining 5.185 strokes with the putter through two days. Today specifically, he rolled in six putts from outside six feet, with a pair from outside 10 feet. Molder is 5-for-7 here at the Nelson, but he's never finished inside the top 20. That could change this weekend if his putter remains hot.

Bryce Molder fashioned a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the closing round of this week's Zurich Classic, posting an 11-under 205 in the weather-shortened event.

Molder took full advantage of preferred lies, striping 13 (of 14) fairways in route to 17 greens in regulation. On the week he missed just nine (of 42) fairways to walk off the course at T11 in the field for fairways hit. The flat stick is usually his weapon of choice, but he splashed in just two putts from outside five feet during the closing round. Molder posted missed cuts in his first five appearances at TPC Louisiana but improved with a T33 last year and now a likely top 10 with this 11-under aggregate. The Georgia Tech product squared just four bogeys on the week, and played the final 37 holes with a clean card.

Bryce Molder enjoyed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to wrap his seventh visit on 4-under 280, up 17 places on the live leaderboard to T7. UPDATE: With play completed, Molder finished in a three-way T6.

Molder posted a previous-best T15 here last year closing in 64-70-67. He opened this week in 70-70 for five straight in the sub-par column before 73 in R3 left him T24 to begin his final frame. The Georgia Tech alum got another streak going with today's four-birdie showing, circling par breakers on Nos. 4, 9, 13 and 16. At the time he signed his card, he gained 4.012 strokes tee-to-green, and 1.312 strokes putting. The 37-year-old converted three the conventional way, including from 19'4" at the par-4 16th and a 16-footer for a '2' at the par-3 fourth, and holed-out from the right rough 17'4" away for birdie-3 at 13. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his third of the season on 14 starts with a best of T4 at the Sanderson Farms in November.

Bryce Molder settled for an even-par 34-37=71 in today's final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 275, down two spots on the leaderboard and into a five-way tie for sixth place.

Molder had two top-10 finishes last season on 26 starts. He's already matched that total in just seven events in 2015-16 (T4, Sanderson Farms), thanks in large part to 7-under 64 in R3. The 37-year-old, who played out of the penultimate threesome on Sunday, briefly joined the early lead (thru four holes) with birdies at the par-4 first (3'7") and a 20-incher at the par-5 third. He avoided bogey at the sixth dropping a 13'10" one-putt par, but wasn't as lucky on the seventh, missing par from the exact same distance. Molder concluded his scoring with a three-putt bogey-5 from 76'1" at 10 and a failed scramble at the par-5 15th, overshadowing a 10-inch birdie at the drivable par-4 17th. His T6 is a personal best at the WMPO in eight attempts.

Scottsdale resident Bryce Molder fired a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 204, up 33 spots on the live leaderboard to T4 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Molder is in a two-way T4, four swings back of 54-hole leader Danny Lee.

Two-tee set-up for the third round (69 players) and Molder was in the first threesome off No. 10 with J.B. Holmes, who shot 68, and Seung-Yul Noh (81). He began Moving Day eight adrift on 2-under (T37) after opening in 67-73. The 37-year-old striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation and at last check, a 3.473 tally in strokes gained: putting. Molder circled eight birdies against a lone bogey at the par-3 seventh (failed sand save). That bogey-4 was sandwiched by four birdie-3s from between 15 and 23 feet, including a walk-off from 18'2" at the par-4 ninth. His 64 is low round of the tournament thus far and a personal best in 29 career rounds at TPC Scottsdale.

The first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open was suspended at 6:11 p.m. MT due to darkness. The resumption of R1 and the start of R2 are scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Friday. UPDATE: Molder parred the eighth, but bogeyed the ninth (failed scramble) to post a 4-under-par 34-33=67, T5 with R1 play still in progress.

Lack of light was the final culprit but it traces its roots to a 45-minute (and eventual) one-hour frost delay at the beginning of the proceedings. Bryce Molder, who went off No. 10 tee, was bogey-free 5-under thru 16 holes when play was halted. Just about all of the names ahead/behind him on the leaderboard have all completed their respective loops, including the trio of 18-hole clubhouse leaders Rickie Fowler, Shane Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama, who all posted 6-under 65s. When play resumes, the 37-year-old Scottsdale resident will be hitting his second to the par-4 eighth from the fairway, 169 yards to the hole.
