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.

The United States team leads the event with a two-day total of 207-216423, or 9-under-par, which is one stroke better than Germany at 218-206424.

Molder carded a 1-under-par round of 71 on Friday, and stands at 4-under-par 69-71140 after two rounds. He is one of four players tied for third place in the event, trailing Paul Casey of Great Britain and Ireland (66-69135) by five shots.
