Molder wins first pga title

10-11-2011 15:52 BJT

Bryce Molder won his first PGA Tour title by outlasting fellow American Briny Baird in a nerve-jangling playoff for the Open at CordeValle Golf Club on Sunday.

Molder sealed victory with a six-foot birdie putt at the par-four 18th, the sixth extra hole, where Baird could only par after his drive ended up in thick rough to the right of the fairway.

As his ball disappeared into the cup, Molder dropped his putter to the ground in a mixture of delight and relief before embracing his caddie and shaking hands with Baird.

"It's a little surreal right now," the 32-year-old American said greenside in fading light after finally breaking into the winner's circle on his 132nd PGA Tour start. "A lot of golf today, but it was a lot of fun.

"You practice and you work and everything, and you just hope there is some validation behind it. I got some breaks at the right time today and I am excited."
