Molder Helps Team USA to a Share of Amateur Lead after First Round

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech senior golfer Bryce Molder (Conway, Ark.) joined the three other members of the United States World Amateur team in red figures as the U.S. is tied with Canada at the World Amateur Team Championship. The 72-hole event is being contested on the Arnold Palmer (6,974-yard, par 72) and Nick Faldo (7,038-yard, par 72) Courses of the Sporting Club in Berlin, Germany.

Molder completed the first round of play with a 3-under-par toal of 36-33–69 and is among six players tied for fourth place in the individual standings. He trails individual leader Paul Casey of Great Britain and Ireland (35-31–66) by three shots after 18 holes of play.

The U.S. team was led by David Eger, who fired an opening-round 33-34–67 and is alone in second place at 5-under-par.

The World Amateur Championship will continue tomorrow with the second round of play, with the top three scores for each four-man team counting toward the team total. Live internet scoring is available at www.wm2000.com.
