Bryce Wade Molder (born January 27, 1979) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Molder was born in Harrison, Arkansas and attended public school in Conway, Arkansas. He attended Georgia Tech and graduated with a degree in management. At Georgia Tech, Bryce was a four-time first-team All-American golfer and was named the Collegiate Golfer of the Year for 2000-2001. A notable teammate at Georgia Tech was current PGA Tour professional Matt Kuchar. He played in the 2001 U.S. Open as an amateur and shot a 68 during the third round, but a final round of 74 left him in a tie for 30th. He turned professional later that year, placing third in his first Tour event, the Reno-Tahoe Open, which was won by John Cook. In 1999, Bryce shot a 60 at his home club, Chenal Country Club in Arkansas while playing a round with fellow Arkansan, then-President Bill Clinton.

Despite his strong first start at Reno, Molder missed earning Tour status in the Tour rankings for money earned in the late summer and fall of 2001. After failing to earn status via PGA Tour Qualifying school, he was able to secure sponsor invitations to Tour events in 2002, earning a T-9 finish at the Compaq Classic of New Orleans, together with top 15 finishes in two other Tour events, securing Special Temporary Membership on the Tour by finishing T-12 at the Buick Classic. Noting the pressure that attended his play of the 18th hole in the final round at Westchester Country Club's West Course, Molder, who needed to par the hole in order to insure earning the Temporary Card, said, "Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to two-putt when you have to." For the remainder of the season, however, his strong form of the spring did not hold, and he missed securing status on the Tour for the 2003 season by one place in the Tour rankings for money earned.
