Mr. President knew Molder would find his mojo


NEW YORK – Bryce Molder has had an admirer during his entire professional career and never knew it. Since that memorable day 12 years ago in Arkansas when Molder played with then President Bill Clinton, Clinton has kept tabs on Molder’s career.

Records show that Molder shot 12-under 60 that day at Chenal Country Club in Little Rock, but Clinton remembers it being a 59. 

At any rate, Clinton was pleased to learn that Molder, a fellow Arkansas native, won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Open via playoff over Briny Baird.

“I’ve been pulling for him all this time,” Clinton said Thursday in his New York office. “He is a wonderful guy. I realized if he ever got his mojo going, he’d be good.”
