Molder finishes Deere Classic in tie for 30th

SILVIS, Ill. (AP) - Bryce Molder of Conway, Ark., didn't fare as well on the PGA tour this weekend as he did last week.

Molder, a college-golf standout at Georgia Tech, fired a 71 Sunday in the PGA's John Deere Classic to finish with a four-round total of 275, 9 under par. His total was 11 strokes off the pace set by tournament winner Steve Stricker, and put Molder in a tie with three other golfers for 30th.

The previous weekend, Molder finished fourth in the PGA's AT&T National, just five strokes behind winner Tiger Woods.

For his performance in the Deere Classic, Molder will take home a check for $27,305.
