ATLANTA — Georgia Tech senior golfer Bryce Molder (Conway, Ark.) has been named the Rolex Collegiate Golfer of the Month for October after his strong showings in both of the Yellow Jackets’ tournaments last month.
Molder began the month by finishing second at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Rocky Face, Ga., as he finished the 54-hole event at 5-under-par, 70-68-73–211. His efforts led Tech to its first team title of 2000-01, and the second-straight team win at the Carpet Capital Collegiate.
Molder followed that outing with a strong performance at the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate in Birmingham, Ala. He captured his second individual title of the season in that event finishing with a school-record score of 17-under-par 67-62-67–196. His second-round score of 62 set a new school record, which Molder promptly bettered at the Golf World Invitational this past weekend, as he fired a third-round score of 12-under-par 60 in that event.
For his career, Molder has won seven tournaments and is tied with Matt Kuchar for second on the all-time list, one behind career leader David Duval. On the year, Molder leads the nation with a scoring average of 67.55, and is a combined 46-under-par in four fall tournaments.
The Yellow Jackets will wrap up their fall campaign this weekend by competing in the Rolex Intercollegiate Match Play Team Championshps at the West Bay Club in Estero, Fla.
