FORT WORTH, Texas — Bryce Molder shot a career-best 8-under 62 and leads after two rounds at the Colonial.
Molder's round Friday got him to 13 under. That's good for a one-stroke lead over first-round co-leader Jason Bohn and two strokes better than Kris Blanks and Brian Davis.
Molder had a chance to match the course record of 61, but missed an 8-foot birdie putt at the 18th hole. The 31-year-old Molder, a four-time All-American at Georgia Tech, has split time between the PGA and Nationwide tours since his professional debut in 2002.
Phil Mickelson would have overtaken Tiger Woods for the No. 1 spot in the world ranking with a win at Colonial. Lefty instead missed the cut at 4 over despite two days of ideal scoring conditions at Hogan's Alley.
There were 76 players who made the cut, which was a tournament record-low 2 under.
