Molder Regains Lead at Canadian Q-School

RSS

Canadian Tour-LargeAUSTIN, Texas -- American Bryce Molder regained the top spot on the leaderboard Wednesday following the third round of the Canadian Tours Texas Winter Qualifying School.
 
The Arkansas native carded a third round even-par 71 and his 54-hole total of 4-under 209 is two shots clear of Marcus Jones and Chris Weil. Will Moore of Dallas, TX, who leapt in front of Molder into first on Tuesday, struggled to a 76 and is now in fourth, four shots off the lead.
 
Eddie Maunder of Whitby, ON moved up to 11th with a 3-under 68 and is now just seven shots back of Molder.
 
The Canadian Tour will award exempt cards to the low five scores following Fridays final round, with the next eight plus ties receiving conditional status.
 
Australian Ben Bunny won the California Q-School by seven shots last week, while American Rob Labritz finished atop the leaderboard at the Florida school earlier this month.
 
This marks the first time the Canadian Tour has staged three consecutive Winter Qualifying Schools. The initial WQS was held in Myrtle Beach, SC back in 2001, with Orlando, FL playing host to the event for the next two years. Last season, Swedens Anders Hultman won Q-School by a record ten shots before winning the TravelTex.com Canadian Tour Classic in his first Tour start. Hultman would go on to win the Tours International Rookie of the Year Award.
 
Later this year, Spring Q-School will be held in Kamloops, BC with Fall Q-School closing out the season this September.
 
Once Q-school wraps up later this week, the Canadian Tour will stay in Austin for the first two official events of 2004. The Barton Creek Classic will be held next week, with the Barton Creek Challenge slated to go the week of March 1-7.
