SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Bryce Molder and Matt Kuchar both were highly touted college prospects tearing through their time at Georgia Tech. Molder was chasing Kuchar then, and he's still chasing him now, eight years later.
Gone are the expectations that came with the powerhouse Yellow Jackets program when they were together from 1998-2000. Kuchar, the 1997 U.S. Amateur champion, has two tour wins and Molder has yet to break through.
He's three shots behind his former teammate after a 5-under 67 in the second round of the PGA Championship on Friday.
The 32-year-old Molder said it's taken him a long time to begin playing the way he expected to after turning pro. He says he thought he and Kuchar would be playing at a championship level a little sooner.
