Bryce Molder followed his opening 68 at the Shell Houston Open with a 10-over-par 44-38=82 and miss the cut.
Molder's 6-over 150 won't come close to the cut line, but the more concerning issue is what the heck happened. Here we thought that all was well after last week's withdrawal due to personal reasons. He split six (of 14) fairways at the Golf Club of Houston today but landed only five greens in regulation and failed to record a birdie or better. After opening par-par on the back side of the course, he strung together six bogeys before a double-bogey 6 at 18. He added another 6 at the par-4 fifth inside of eight pars coming home. This is the first time since early June of 2013 that he's failed to cash in consecutive starts. Apr 4 - 6:13 PM

Bryce Molder shot a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

After last week's withdrawal 27 holes into the Valero Texas Open due to personal reasons, all bets are off upon return. At least it was a good one as he went 5-for-14 in birdie chances with a 55'10" beaut at the par-3 16th chased by a conversion from 13'7" at the par-4 17th. Molder also jarred a nine-yarder for birdie from just off the green to open his round at the par-4 first. He's three strokes off the overnight lead.
Apr 3 - 8:22 PM

Bryce Molder withdrew during his second round of the Valero Texas Open, citing personal reasons.

He went out in 2-over-par 38, and then walked in. Molder was 4-over through 27 holes. It's his first mid-tournament withdrawal since the 2012 John Deere Classic. If he's able, he'll tee it up at next week's Shell Houston Open where he's 2-for-5 with a pair of top 20s.
Mar 28 - 6:20 PM

Bryce Molder will compete in his sixth Valero Texas Open this week.

Molder rebounded from his first missed cut of the season with a T35 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. That leaves him at 9-for-10 on the season, including two top-10 finishes. That kind of consistency is what makes him an attractive option to weekly salary gamers.
Mar 25 - 2:55 PM

Bryce Molder spun a blemish-free 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open, nabbing his second top 10 in as many weeks at 10-under 274.

The Georgia Tech product gathered birdies on the first, fourth, seventh and 16th holes at Riviera Country Club. He was efficient all week, squaring just six bogeys to 16 birdies. His irons were key, as he landed 68.06 percent of his GIR this week. We are still waiting on Molder's normally elite flat stick to completely come around, but he did managed to gain over half a stroke per round relative to the field this week.
Feb 16 - 5:19 PM

Bryce Molder departs Pebble Beach Golf Links with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Molder circled five birdies, but gave back three bogeys between the ninth and 12th holes. Though he gave back just over a stroke to the field with the putter at the time of his posting, he managed to putt to a 1.615 average on the 13 occasions when he found the GIR. His 5-under 282 final tally appears safe for a top-10 finish, which would be the first of his season.
Feb 9 - 6:07 PM

Bryce Molder's third-round 3-under-par 34-35=69 at Spyglass Hill in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was one of the best on a windy day.

Of the three courses used in the rotation, Spyglass is the one most shielded from the elements, but that doesn't make his 69 any less impressive. He bagged five birdies and squared two bogeys on an afternoon that included a weather delay for high winds. He missed just three fairways and found 13 GIR. He enters the finale at 3-under 212.
Feb 8 - 7:04 PM

Bryce Molder spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Molder rolled into town -- actually, it's a home game since he lives in Scottsdale -- having cashed in nine consecutive starts. He's also survived the cut in each of the last four editions of the WMPO, a run that includes a trio of top 25, so it's no surprise that he's just two strokes off the early clubhouse lead. He hit only 10 greens in regulation, so his confidence on and around the greens is high. He also poured in four birdies, the longest of which just 12'7" at the drivable, par-4 17th. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of 2.250.
Jan 30 - 2:11 PM

Bryce Molder has made each of his last two cuts in the Farmers Insurance Open and returns for his seventh appearance in the event this week.

While the recent history is good, highlighted by a T13 in 2012, that hasn't always been the case for Molder on Torrey Pines. He missed the cut three times, while also pulling out of the 2011 edition. He's made each of his four cuts in 2013-14, with a T14 at the CIMB Classic his best effort. While it's still early, he's currently 135th in strokes gained-putting this season after finishing 10th last season.
Jan 22 - 8:50 PM

Bryce Molder finished the 2013 PGA TOUR season ranked 64th in the FedExCup standings, allowing him full exemption on TOUR in 2013-14.

After a couple of forgettable starts in the 2013-14 Fall Series, he ended the calendar year on a high note with a T14 at the CIMB Classic. Statistically solid across most major categories, Molder's constant has always been a steady putter. He has ranked inside the top 10 in each of the last three seasons in strokes gained-putting.

Bryce Molder turned in a 6-under-par 30-35=65 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Molder's stats line offers a bit of an oddity today. He hit 15 greens in regulation and missed just two tries inside 10 feet, but walked off TPC Summerlin with a negative strokes gained-putting split. To do that and sit just five strokes off the clubhouse lead in this shootout qualifies as an anomaly. However, there's a simple explanation. He holed out twice, first for eagle from 126 yards at the par-5 16th and then again for birdie from eight yards at 7. Neither contributes to his putting since he didn't convert either stroke from on the green. And his longest of the other four birdies he circled measured just 11'7" at No. 17.

Bryce Molder had made the cut in each of the first two FedExCup Playoff events, and will go for three at the BWM Championship next week.

Molder tied for 25th at Liberty National in The Barclays, then shared 41st at TPC Boston in the Deutsche Bank Championship. In all, he's made seven of his last eight cuts, but doesn't have a top 15 among them. In fact, he's racked up eight top 25s without a top 10 in 2013, and he will need at least a top 10 if he has any hopes of making it to the TOUR Championship.

Bryce Molder grinded out a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the midpoint in 5-under 135, four strokes adrift of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Sedgefield Country Club can reach out and bite at times, but that Molder needed five birdies to help offset four bogeys after he went bogey-free on Thursday probably reveals an absence of confidence. His longest par breaker measured just 10'1" (at the third hole) but he missed three tries from inside 10 feet, two of which leading to bogeys.

Bryce Molder crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

It hasn't been the most impressive season for Molder as he's yet to log a top 10, but he's managed six top 25s to secure a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling at Sedgefield today while negotiating two birdies before an eagle-3 from 15'7" at the fifth hole. He signed his card sitting two strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

Bryce Molder will make his fourth start at the Wyndham Championship this week.

Molder has made two of his previous three starts at the current venue of Sedgefield Country Club, missing the cut in 2012 and sharing 17th in 2009. At 101st in the FedExCup standings, he's one of the lucky players in the field that is safely in The Barclays next week. He's simply playing for form and position.
