ATLANTA (June 13) – Georgia Tech junior golfer Bryce Molder, the two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, was named to the first team of the GTE Academic All-America Spring At-Large Team. Molder, a management major, owns a 3.39 grade point average.
Molder had another outstanding season in 2000, earning ACC Player of the Year honors for the second straight season, along with being named a first team All-American for the third time in his career. He joins David Duval as the only two Tech players to be so honored.
He finished the year second in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, and was second on the team in scoring with a 70.72 stroke average, the lowest season average of his career. Molder also led the team with three victories on the season, including the 2000 ACC Championship.
Molder becomes the fourth Georgia Tech student-athlete to be named a first-team Academic All-American during the 1999-2000 school year, joining baseball star Mark Teixeira, volleyball standout Carolyn Clevenger and football player Dan Dyke.
