DUBLIN, Ohio – Bryce Molder is making the biggest move of the players on a clear, crisp Thursday afternoon at Muirfield Village.
Molder birdied five of his first seven holes before making bogey at the ninth to turn at 4 under – which is two strokes off the lead held by Chris Riley. There are also seven players currently on the course who are 3 under and that group includes some pretty interesting names.
One is Vijay Singh, who won the Memorial in 1997 and finished second two years later. Singh has played 10 holes. Meanwhile, Ernie Els and Rory McIlroy are also 3 under through 13 holes on opposite nines. Els is the 2004 Memorial champ.
