Molder, U.S. team eager to regain Walker Cup

SEA ISLAND, Ga. - Bryce Molder, an All-American for four years at Georgia Tech who broke college scoring records held by Tiger Woods and David Duval, has decided to skip the U.S. Amateur next week to turn professional. But miss the Walker Cup, which begins today and concludes Sunday at Ocean Forest Golf Club? No way. The memories are too fresh for Molder.
