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. May 26 - 1:36 PM

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.
Apr 17 - 4:16 PM

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.
Feb 7 - 8:10 PM

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.
Feb 6 - 4:04 PM

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.
Feb 4 - 8:54 PM

Bryce Molder made quick work of La Quinta Country Club, signing for a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 to open his week at this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

Playing his first round of tournament golf since the OHL Classic in November, Molder shook off the cobwebs on the front nine, piling up just two birdies. He picked up steam from there, adding back-to-back birdie on the par-4 10th and par-5 11th holes before adding two more on his way in. Despite his great opening round, Molder sits two shots off the leaders, one of them being his playing partner, Jerry Kelly.

Bryce Molder's win at the 2011 Open remains his only victory on TOUR in 234 professional starts.

The Scottsdale, Arizona, resident ended calendar year 2013 at No. 214 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Fifty-two starts later, he's ranked No. 225. The 36-year-old has made the FedExCup Playoffs in each of the last seven seasons, but has not finished higher than 60th (2010). Five of those times, he finished between 60th and 70th. The takeaway here is remarkably --and consistently-- mediocre. Molder will drop a top 10 just often enough to drive managers crazy (seven over his last 104 starts). His beginning to 2015-16 is no different with three missed cuts and a T4 at the weather-plagued Sanderson Farms where he was T2 after each of the first three rounds.

Bryce Molder tossed up a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to put the finishing touches on a five-way tie for fourth at 16-under 272, two adrift of champion Peter Malnati.

In the last of his three SFC appearances, Molder shot a final-round 9-over 81 in the 2007 edition (Annandale GC) to finish in 71st place and never came back; that is, until this week. With just four top 10s over his last 81 starts on TOUR dating back to 2012, perhaps he should come back more often. The-36-year-old began the finale in a five-way T3 at 13-under and just one adrift. Playing in the final group, as there was no re-paring between rounds three and four, he was bogey-free and 4-under thru his first 16 holes. His lone bogey came at the 71st hole on a failed sand save and erased his chance at a second win on TOUR (2011 Open). Molder can redeem himself in short order, as he's in the published field at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba, where he hasn't played since a T72 in 2009.

Bryce Molder answered his opening 64 at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round to post 11-under 133, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After a delay of four hours and 56 minutes, the second round resumed at 1:00 p.m. CT. This leaves today's early draw to try and take advantage of a break in the weather. Lift, clean and place has been in effect for the first two rounds. Always best known as an accurate striker of the ball, Molder has fulfilled the reputation. Today, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. The precision yielded five birdies, the longest measuring just 12'5" at the par-5 14th hole. He gave back two shots with bogeys, one of which a three-putt. The 36-year-old will not retain the lead, however, as Roberto Castro is four shots clear with just two holes remaining in his second round.

Bryce Molder spun a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-34=64 in today's opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Aaron Baddeley.

After opening the season with four rounds over par and a pair of missed cuts, Molder made it known early today that his eyes were on the opposite result. He opened birdie-birdie-birdie at the Country Club of Jackson today and totaled eight birdies in what was his first competitive round on the track. His longest par breaker came courtesy of a zero-putt 10-yarder at the par-4 eighth, but he also connected conventionally for birdie from 10'5" at the par-3 10th. Molder's longest putt that dropped measured 14 feet for par at the par-4 sixth. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check with a clip of 4.405. Also, while he and Baddeley may not sleep on the co-lead, both currently share the course record.

Bryce Molder looks for his first payday of the season at this week's Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson.

Molder has opened his 10th season on TOUR with consecutive missed cuts at the Open (by five), and by a whopping 12 strokes at the Shriners on rounds of 75-77. Thru two starts, he's 170th on TOUR in scoring average at 75.589. Last season, he finished 70th in the FedExCup standings, advancing to the Playoffs for the seventh consecutive season (his career best is 60th in 2010). He opened with a promising T11 at The Barclays, before bowing out with T68-MC. The 36-year-old has not played the Sanderson Farms since a 71st-place finish in the 2007 edition at Annandale GC when it was better known as the Viking Classic. His lone title in 232 professional starts remains the 2011 Open, where he won in a playoff. In 103 starts since, he's logged one top-five finish, a T3 at you guessed it, the Open.

Bryce Molder makes his way back to Conway Farms Golf Club for this week's BMW Championship.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket arrives with top 40s in four of his last seven starts. Another top 40 this week and he would improve upon his T44 from last time the TOUR visited Conway Farms. It's been an up-and-down season for Molder, but six top 25s have placed him in his current position of 69th in the FedExCup standings. He'll need a big effort this week if he wants to advance onto East Lake next week and visit his old college buddies.
