Bryce Molder fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the John Deere Classic to reach the halfway point in 9-under 133, one swing off Scott Pinckney's 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Molder shared sixth place at Greenbrier on Sunday, so he made the trip to the Quad Cities with confidence. It was on display today, especially. He hit 16 greens in regulation and connected for three birdies on each nine. He saved the best for last, too, drilling a 35-footer for birdie at the par-4 18th before signing his card.

Overnight co-leader Bryce Molder stalled out to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude at 11-under 269, good for a seven-way tie for sixth place and two shots out of a playoff.

Molder, vying for his second career PGA TOUR title (2011 Open), began the final round in a four-way tie for the lead. The 36-year-old, playing in the penultimate pairing with S.J. Park, never got much of anything going, exchanging one birdie at the par-3 second with one bogey at the par-4 sixth. He concluded his round with 12 consecutive pars. The lack of a charge wasn't the result of his ball-striking, landing 13 (of 14) fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation. Molder ranked first in strokes gained: putting thru three rounds, but his flat stick abandoned him on Sunday, clocking in at -1.697 in the putting stat over his final frame. He didn't have many realistic scoring chances however, with his lone conversion at the third, from 4'5", his only birdie putt from inside 12 feet on his entire loop. Molder's T6-finish was his second top 10 on the season (19 starts). His previous best at The Old White TPC in two prior appearances was T17 in 2013.
Jul 5 - 8:21 PM

Bryce Molder signed for a 3-under-par 31-36=67 after today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for a four-way tie for the lead after 54 holes with Jason Bohn, Sean O'Hair, and S.J. Park.

Molder, playing in the penultimate pairing with Chad Collins, began his final frame in a six-way logjam at 8-under (T3) and just one off the pace. He grabbed some early momentum, circling three birdies on his outward half, but stalled out with nine consecutive pars to conclude his day. On a positive note, he stayed in the title chase by going 4-for-4 in scrambling on his inward nine, three of those were par-saving putts between five and seven feet. Molder, 102nd in the FedExCup standings, split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, and with three rounds in the books, he ranks first in strokes gained: putting and T1 in strokes gained: total. The 36-year-old hit on his season-best T3 (18 starts) at the season-opening Open back in October and is his only top 10 of his 2014-15 campaign. Coincidentally, his lone PGA TOUR win (225 career starts) came at the Open as well, in 2011.
Jul 4 - 6:13 PM

Bryce Molder smoothed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 8-under 132 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Molder totaled just 12 greens in regulation but connected for seven birdies, six of which from outside 10 feet. The most notables taped out at 21'3" and 35'7" at Nos. 14 and 16, respectively. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 seventh where he bogeyed, but he didn't miss from inside 11 feet all day. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 4.591. Molder's only top 10 of the season came in the first event; he tied for third at the Open. He arrived at Greenbrier slotted 102nd in the FedExCup standings, but is now in position to record his second PGA TOUR victory in 223 starts as a professional.

Bryce Molder shot 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the Travelers Championship before coming to rest just two strokes in arrears of the threesome with the clubhouse lead

Molder missed only three (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to five birdies at TPC River Highlands today. Two of his birdies ranged 12-16 feet. His only miscue occurred at the par-3 fifth where he missed the green off the tee and squared a bogey.

Bryce Molder tees it up at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship this week for his sixth tour of the TPC Four Seasons Resort.

Molder is 3-for-5 at the BNC with T23 in 2009 debut his best showing. He opened the season T3 at the Open (site of his only PGA TOUR victory in 2011) for his lone top 10 in 15 starts. Molder has made four cuts on the bounce but has cracked the top 30 just once in that span (T15, RBC Heritage). The 36-year-old shot even-par 280 at last week's Crowne Plaza Invitational to finish T58.
May 27 - 9:58 AM

Bryce Molder crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 8-under 136 at the midpoint, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Molder is 88th in the FedExCup standings with a trio of top 20s, two of which in which last three starts. While that's on par with his career arc, what's hard to believe is that he turned 36 years of age in January. Best known as a short-but-accurate driver and terrific putter, he put his entire game together today. Molder hit 15 greens and poured in five birdies, three of which from outside 10 feet. His longest ranged 22'7" at the par-4 fifth hole.
Apr 24 - 1:17 PM

Bryce Molder spun a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage to post 9-under 275.

Molder was not in serious contention to start his final round sitting nine shots adrift of the leader in a tie for 27th. However, having missed the cut in three of his last four starts coming in and 102nd in FedExCup points, he had a lot to gain by finishing strong. On the day, Molder striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. The 36-year-old came out of the gate fighting with birdies on his first two holes but didn't find another circle on the card until consecutive birdies on the par-4 12th and 13th. His set ranged from 1'1" to a long of 8'11". At last check Molder sat just outside the top 10, having wished he converted a few more of the 14 total par-breaker chances he had on the day.

Bryce Molder turns his attention to TPC San Antonio for this week's Valero Texas Open.

Molder has a pair of paydays at TPC San Antonio, a T36 finish in 2011 and T22 just two years later. His only blemish comes last year when he withdrew after 27 holes, citing personal reasons. This was also the spark that ignited nine straight finishes outside the top 40. Other than a podium finish to kick off the year at the Open, his form remains lackluster and should be avoided until he strings something together.
Mar 25 - 8:57 AM

Bryce Molder has four top 35s at the Northern Trust Open and looks to make it five at this week's running.

Molder is looking to ride the California waves and build on his T34 finish at last week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He is now 4-for-6 on the season, which also happens to be his record at this event. His slump looks to be a thing of the past and gamers can safely reinvest in Molder.

Bryce Molder is looking to continue his bounce-back crusade at this week's Humana Challenge.

Molder collected just five top 25s during the 2013-14 season, breaking a five-year streak of eight or more. The tipping point was easy to see as he finished outside the top 40 in 12-of-14 events after pulling out of the Valero Texas Open for personal reasons. The Georgia Tech product opened the new season with a podium finish at the Open and it appears safe for gamers to reinvest.
Jan 20 - 1:45 PM

Bryce Molder is back in the driver's seat after a T3 and T42 during the Fall Series, and will enjoy the time off before 2015 rolls around.

Molder's 2013-14 campaign took a nose dive after his WD for personal reasons at the Valero Texas Open. Following the mid-tournament exit, he went on to miss nine of 14 cuts, finishing 45th or worse in 12 of those. Gamers should place Molder back on their radar once the calendar flips to 2015, as it appears his form is returning.

Bryce Molder battled for a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Open and will easily finish inside the top 10 at 12-under 276.

Molder is a past champion in this event, but his win did not come at the current venue of Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. Today's round was a tale of two nines. After seven pars were only briefly interrupted by a bogey and a birdie on the front, he went crazy on the back. His six birdies on the back nine were partially offset by two bogeys, meaning he recorded just one par on the entire inward nine. High highlights came on back-to-back holes. Molder rattled home a 22'10" birdie putt on the par-4 14th and followed that up with an 18'9" birdie on the par-3 15th.

Bryce Molder added a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his second round of the Open to post 5-under 139 and sit five strokes of the 36-hole lead.

He split six more fairways today (11 of 14), but hit the same number of greens in regulation (11) and squared one double bogey again, this time a 6 at the sixth hole. But Molder was blemish-free elsewhere and circled five birdies, including a pair from outside 11 feet. The most notable disappeared via a bunker blast 13 yards away at the par-3 second. Given the fact that he's hit only 22 GIR and has only two over-par holes, he's fortunate to be in position to make noise on the weekend.

Bryce Molder signed for a 2-under-par 36-34=70 following his opening round of the Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He opened with a 6 at the par-4 10th hole, but scored bogey-free the rest of the way with four birdies. All 18 of his conversions began rolling from inside six feet. Props to his ingenuity, too, as he split only five (of 14) fairways and hit just 11 greens in regulation. Molder's only PGA TOUR victory came in this event at CordeValle in 2011. He's gunning to improve on consecutive season south of $830K.
