Scott Piercy stalled out to a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in today's final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 17-under 267, down one spot into a three-way T4, four adrift of champion Pat Perez, who shot 67.
There's never a good time to swallow a double bogey, particularly not on the 72nd hole as Piercy did today, giving up what would've been a two-way T2. Playing out of the final threesome with Perez and overnight leader Gary Woodland, he began the final frame in solo third, two back. The Las Vegas native and resident climbed to solo second at the break, outpacing bogey-5 at the second with birdies at 3, 5, 6 and 8, but bobbled down the stretch, overshadowing birdies at 15 and 17 with bogeys at 13 and 16 and the aforementioned double. He pelted ALL 14 fairways but mustered just 13 greens in regulation. Piercy has been in the top 10 thru 54 holes in four of his five starts this season but has posted closing rounds of 70-72-70-70, but does record his third top 10 and second top 5 (T3, Safeway).
