Prior to his round two tee time, Bryce Molder withdrew from the Wyndham Championship, putting an end to his 2016-17 PGA TOUR season. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.
Molder traded three birdies with a five pack of bogeys on day one. He lost 4.135 strokes off-the-tee as he split just five (of 14) fairways while hitting nine of his drives inside the 270-yard mark. The Georgia Tech product would have needed at least a 5-under 65 to have a chance to play the weekend. He would have needed a magical three rounds to vault up to a notable FedExCup number, as he entered the week 186th in the FEC race. Even with a WD, he is projected inside the top 200, which will give him a crack at the Tour Finals, if this WD wasn't due to a serious injury. Fri, Aug 18, 2017 02:16:00 PM

Bryce Molder would love to break out of a season-long slump as he turns his attention toward TPC Deere Run for this week's John Deere Classic.

Molder is just 10-for-23 on the season, ranking 174th in the FedExCup race. While the missed cuts are concerning, the lack of top-heavy finishes are what really stand out. After piling up five or more top 25s in each of the last eight seasons, Molder currently sits at ZERO for the 2016-17 season. From a statistical point-of-view, Molder ranks outside the top 175 in both long-game metrics (strokes gained off-the-tee and strokes gained approach-the-green) but inside the top 35 in both short-game metrics (strokes gained around-the-green and strokes gained putting). With TPC Deere Run yielding a high volume of fairways and greens, perhaps Molder will be able to minimize the tee-to-green damage and thrive on the greens. In nine past appearances here, he has earned five paychecks, with all of them being T30 or better.

Bryce Molder ascended quickly up the leaderboard in round one of the Valero Texas Open, piecing together a 4-under-par 33-35=68 on Thursday afternoon.

Molder grinded his way around the Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, leaning heavily on his short game. Highlights include three putts converted from outside 12 feet in addition to a 55'11" hole-out birdie from the rough at the par-4 ninth. The Georgia Tech alum walked off the course gaining 2.557 strokes around-the-green and 1.836 strokes putting. Making his sixth appearance at TPC San Antonio, this matches his previous course low (R1 and R4 of the 2013 edition).

Bryce Molder hung up a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round at the Shell Houston Open, good enough for T5 on the live leaderboard and four back from early pacesetter Rickie Fowler.

Molder picked up two of his birdies at the Golf Club of Houston's par 5s but they didn't come easily. The American, who started his round from the 10th tee today, had to hole from 22'1" for his par breaker at the 15th and it was similar story at the 4th where he drained his putt from 24'4". Molder's other birdies came on the par 4s at 12 and 1. He split just 7 (of 14) fairways today and found only 12 greens in regulation but the flat stick was hot as he gained 3.67 strokes putting. The 37-year-old arrived in Texas on the back of T37 at the Puerto Rico Open, the first time he'd cashed in five starts since T41 at January's Farmers Insurance Open.

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.

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
Sat, May 21, 2016 05:34:00 PM

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.
