Bryce Molder crafted a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to end the week at 14-under 270.
Molder needed a result like this, as he had not cracked the top 30 since his T6 in the Northern Trust Open at Riviera CC back in February. His lap around TPC Deere Run featured seven birdies to just one bogey, with a 20'3" birdie at the par-4 15th and a 22-footer at the par-3 16th ranking as the notables. He split 12 of 14 fairways, landed 14 GIR, gained well over a stroke with the flat stick and putted to a 1.50 average. Perhaps he is now back on track. Jul 13 - 4:00 PM

Bryce Molder makes his way back to this week's John Deere Classic for his eighth look at TPC Deere Run.

Molder sat in 64th place in the FedExCup standings before his early exit for personal reasons at the Valero Texas Open. Since then, he's 2-for-9 and lacks a finish inside the top 40, falling to 121st in the FEC standings in the process. While it's unfair to speculate on poor performance, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the shift that occurred after the Valero Texas Open. Gamers would be wise to avoid until the dust settles and Molder shows any sign of form.

Bryce Molder will tee it up for the eighth time in the Travelers Championship later this week.

Molder has been solid of late at TPC River Highlands, making each of his last five cuts including a T6 in 2011. He's slipped to 112th in the FedExCup standings, meaning he is nowhere near a lock to retain his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15 at this point. This is his lowest rank of the year, so a poor showing this week would mean that it's time to get concerned.
Jun 17 - 9:32 PM

At 1-over-par 71-70=141, Bryce Molder survived the cut on the number at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Molder hasn't found a gear since the conclusion of the West Coast Swing. He had cashed just once in six starts, including an 0-for-4 skid that ended today. That slide translated to a fall of 55 spots to 100th in the FedExCup standings. He's one of 18 golfers tied for 67th place at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas, so another cut of low 70 professionals and ties will fall once 54 holes are complete.

Bryce Molder makes his fifth start at TPC Sawgrass this week at THE PLAYERS.

Molder was a model of consistency early in the year, but the mold has since been broken. His last five starts have yielded just one payday, and it makes you wonder if that withdrawal due to personal reasons at the Valero Texas Open is still lingering. It's safe for gamers to avoid him now until he gets back on track.
May 7 - 10:48 AM

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.
