Georgia Tech's Bryce Molder Falls To Luke Donald In U.S. Amateur Quarterfinals

ATLANTA — Georgia Tech senior men’s golfer Bryce Molder (Conway, Ark.) was defeated by 1999 NCAA National Champion Luke Donald of Northwestern in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur Championship. The Amateur Championship is being contested at Baltusrol’s Upper (6,975-yard, par-71) and Lower (7,191-yard, par-70) courses in Springfield, N.J.

Molder, who reached the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur for the third-straight year, fell two down after the first six holes of play, but rallied to take a one up lead after the 13th hole. Donald was able to square the match and then take the lead for good on the 17th. Molder was unable to extend the match on the 18th as his 40-foot putt slid just by the hole.

Donald advances to meet the winner of the James Driscoll vs. Jerry Courville match tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. Molder will compete for the United States in the World Amateur Championship in Berlin, Germany, August 31-September 3.
