- Bryce Molder, seeking his first US PGA title in five years, fired a bogey-free six-under par 64 to grab a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Dean and Deluca Invitational. The 37-year-old American, whose only tour triumph came at the 2011 Frys.com Open, birdied his last four holes at Colonial to grab a one-stroke lead over compatriots Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson and India's Anirban Lahiri at Fort Worth, Texas. "I got some good looks late," said Molder, who began on the 10th tee and opened with nine pars. "I may have just been still asleep. it was dark and cloudy. We were laughing they were about to blow the horn for darkness."
