Overnight co-leader Scott Piercy pieced together an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish off his third appearance on 5-under 275, down one place to solo second, one in arrears to champion Dustin Johnson.
The 37-year-old finished (co-) runner-up to Johnson in his last start at the U.S. Open and once again finds himself playing second fiddle. He co-led with World No. 1 Jason Day on 5-under after opening in 69-69-70, three clear of Johnson who was T5 on 2-under and shot 66. The Las Vegas native and resident mustered a week-low five (of 14) fairways and a tied-week-low 10 greens in regulation, posting negative numbers in each strokes gained category with the exception of a 1.379 in SG: Putting. He cancelled out birdies at Nos. 8, 10, 14 and 18 with bogeys on holes 9, 12, 13 and 15. Piercy settles for a personal best at Firestone, supplanting T19 on debut in 2012, his second runner-up in his 209th career start, and tied his best finish in a WGC event, joining a T2 at the 2012 HSBC.

Scott Piercy smoothed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach 5-under 205, up two spots and tying overnight leader Jason Day for the 54-hole lead.

The 37-year-old will be going for his fourth PGA TOUR title on Sunday in his 209th career start, first since the 2015 Barbasol Championship. He began Moving Day in a three-way T3 on 2-under, two swings back of 36-hole leader Jason Day. The San Diego State alum found eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 4.373 SG: Tee-to-Green with 2.893 of that coming from around-the-green. The latter suffered slightly with his lone bogey at the par-4 18th on a failed sand save, but otherwise went 5-for-6 in scrambles, highlighted by a 35'4" par-saver from the fringe on the 14th using the flat stick. Piercy circled the 11th and 17th, both from inside of five feet, with his most memorable par breaker a hole-out eagle-3 at the second from a greenside bunker.

Scott Piercy battled to a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to post 2-under 138, up six places on the live leaderboard to T3, one shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader David Lingmerth.

The 37-year-old improved to nine (of 14) fairways but digressed to 10 greens in regulation and -1.030 in SG: Around-the-Green, currently 46th in the latter (of 58 players). He's stayed strong however, in SG: Approach-to-the-Green and SG: Tee-to-Green, with cumulative totals of 4.359 and 5.775, respectively, No.2-ranked in both of those categories at the time he signed his card. The Las Vegas native and resident outpaced bogeys at Nos. 6, 9 and 12 on failed scrambles with birdies at 2, 5, 11 and 17, highlighted by a 37'9" bomb at the par-4 11th.
Jul 1 - 5:55 PM

Scott Piercy pieced together a 1-under-par 36-33=69 during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Piercy arrived off a T2 at the U.S. Open, and kept his foot on the gas today. He landed 13 greens in regulation, which was necessary considering his putter was dormant for most of the round. The exception was a 19'3" birdie splash at the par-3 fifth hole. Other than that, his longest converted putt was from 6'1" and he also missed a 4'7" par-saving attempt at the par-4 fourth. Piercy's tee-to-green game is dialed in at the moment and gamers should continue to ride the hot clubs while it last.

Scott Piercy orchestrated a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the U.S. Open to post 1-under 279, up five places on the live leaderboard into a three-way T2. UPDATE: With play completed, Piercy finished in a three-way T2, three back of champion Dustin Johnson.

This was the 37-year-old's fifth appearance with a previous best (and lone cash) a T51 in 2011 at Congressional. He began the final round in a two-way T7 on even-par, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Shane Lowry. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he mustered five (of 14) fairways, but pelted 13 greens in regulation and totaled 30 putts. The Las Vegas native and resident birdied Nos. 1, 2 and 12 and was blemish-free thru 15 holes before bogeys on 16 and 18. This is just his second top 10 of the season in 17 starts with the other a T7 at the CIMB back in November. It's also his career best and second top 10 in 13 major appearances (T5, 2013 PGA Championship).
Jun 19 - 8:03 PM

Scott Piercy survived his second round of the day (and week) at Oakmont Country Club, signing an even-par 36-34=70 to reach 2-under 138 on the week.

Piercy found 17 greens in regulation during the second round, but couldn't get the flat stick to cooperate. The grounds crew rolled the greens in-between rounds one and two, increasing the speed by over a foot on the Stimpmeter compared to his morning round, and he struggled to adjust. Piercy circled five birdies today, but three-putted on four occasions to give back those strokes on the green. Through two rounds he's split 71 percent of fairways and landed 78 percent of greens. His ball-striking has him inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard, but he'll need to figure out the green speeds over the weekend if he wants to remain in contention.

Scott Piercy pieced together a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during the first round of the 116th U.S. Open Championship, placing him inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard as the second wave of golfers begin to close out their opening 18 holes.

Piercy needed a 15-footer to save par at the par-4 third hole, but that key putt propelled him to a three-hole birdie train including a 31-footer at the par-4 fifth hole as the caboose. The San Diego State product split 10 (of 14) fairways to keep the plot rather drama-free. Piercy found himself in a share of the lead after a tap-in birdie at the par-3 13th hole, knocking the 182-yard tee shot to just three feet. He swallowed a pair of bogeys heading into the clubhouse, but remains just two back entering round two. He entered the week with a 1-for-4 record at the U.S. Open with a T51 (2011) as his best.

Scott Piercy is in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, for the 116th U.S. Open and tees it up the first two rounds with India's Anirban Lahiri and Jamie Donaldson of Wales.

This is the 37-year-old's fifth appearance, first since missing the cut by six in 2013 (Merion GC) after rounds of 14-over 78-76=154. His overall scoring average in 10 career rounds is 74.50 and cashed a lone paycheck with T51 in 2011 at Congressional. The Las Vegas native and resident is a three-time winner on TOUR in 207 career events, most recently at the 2015 Barbasol Championship. He's 14-for-16 this season with eight top 25s, but just one for a top 10 (T7, CIMB). Piercy finished T29 at the Masters and has since posted: T23-CUT-T67-T69.

Scott Piercy opened his week at the AT&T Byron Nelson with a 5-under-par 34-31=65, currently two strokes off the pace set by Sergio Garcia.

Piercy circled his first birdie of the week at the par-3 second hole, but it wasn't all smooth sailing today. He missed a 4'9" par-saving attempt at the par-3 fifth hole and needed three par-saving putts to drop from outside six feet before making the turn at 1-under. His approach play was great today, landing 14 greens despite just seven fairways hit. Piercy splashed home two more par-savers from outside six feet on his way into the clubhouse. This was a bit more stressful than you'd like to see out of a 5-under round, but the score written on the card is all that matters in the end.

Scott Piercy makes a return trip to TPC Four Seasons for his sixth appearance at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

Piercy arrives this week ranked 61st in the FedExCup standings, thanks to eight top 25s in 13 starts. The bomber is hitting greens at a very high clip, currently ranked 27th on TOUR in that regard. His course history pops for gamers as well, posting top 30s in three of his five visits, although he withdrew during the second round at last year's edition. Piercy makes for a great play in all formats this week.

Scott Piercy navigated Augusta National Golf Club with an even-par 35-37=72 during the second round of the 80th Masters, arriving at 2-under 142 through 36 holes, with an early share of the clubhouse lead.

Piercy remained accurate off the tee, striping 10 (of 14) fairways today (22 on the week). The putter was hot to start the round, splashing home 45 feet of putts over a three-hole stretch, beginning at the par-5 second hole. Piercy also added a 14-foot birdie roll on the par-5 13th. He'd like to have one back at the par-3 16th hole as he missed from inside four feet to swallow his fifth bogey of the week. Piercy sits at T2 on the live leaderboard, sharing the early clubhouse lead with Danny Lee, while Spieth is out on the course setting the pace ahead of them.
Apr 8 - 3:36 PM

Making his second start at the Masters, Scott Piercy fired a 2-under-par 33-37=70 during the opening round of the 80th edition of the event.

Piercy recorded a T54 in his 2013 Masters debut, but signed three scorecards of 75 or worse that week. A score of 75 looked far-fetched after an eagle at the par-5 second and birdie at the par-3 fourth hole got him to 3-under early. The round looked to be slipping away as he made the turn, though, missing a five-foot par-saving attempt at the 10th and splashing his approach shot on the par-4 11th hole. Piercy dropped three shots over that stretch but got two of them back as he came into the clubhouse with birdies at the 13th and 15th. Piercy's ball-striking was on point today, striping 12 (of 14) fairways. The real test will come as the week progresses to see how he performs when/if his ball-striking isn't in top shape for a round or two.
Apr 7 - 8:17 PM

Scott Piercy looks to play the spoiler role as he readies for this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Piercy was last seen at this event giving away a match to Justin Rose in the 2014 edition. The bomber immediately went under the knife following the loss, to repair a torn tendon in his right elbow. His showing in 2013 was a better representation of what he's capable of when healthy. He ousted Paul Lawrie 4 and 3 and then dismantled Luke Donald 7 and 6, before losing a heart-breaker to Steve Stricker. Piercy will kick off his week with matches against Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, and Byeong-hun An. Gamers should consider him a very lively sleeper.
Mar 22 - 7:15 PM

Despite just eight greens in regulation, Scott Piercy rebounded with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for a three-day tally of 3-under 213, up 12 places on the live leaderboard to T14.

The 37-year-old's opening 66 had him co-leading after 18 holes but chased with a two-birdie 77 on day two. He responded with three circles in his first four holes on Saturday -- including a 63-foot prayer at the par-4 second and a 16-footer for birdie-2 at the fourth. Piercy's dropped shots were a three-putt at the sixth and a missed four-footer at the par-3 ninth for a failed scramble. On a bogey-free 1-under inward half, he was buoyed by a hole-out birdie at the par-4 11th from a green side bunker and a par save from 12'7" at the 14th from the fringe. A couple of zero putts en route to just 24 strokes with the flat stick in round three.
Mar 5 - 4:26 PM

Overnight co-leader Scott Piercy crashed and burned to a 5-over-par 39-38=77 in the second round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship for a 36-hole aggregate of 1-under 143, nine shots adrift of 36-hole leader Adam Scott.

Piercy co-lead with Australia's Marcus Fraser after a confidence-building 66 on day one. It was his fourth 18-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 200th career start and first since the 2015 CIMB Classic where eventually finished T7. Interestingly enough, both he and Fraser (not playing together) are tied again after day two, but they're down 25 places on the leaderboard after twin 77s. The 37-year-old was 7-under thru his first 13 holes on day one, but he's now now played his last 23 holes in 6-over. As would be expected his stats in R2 dipped to just six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation and a -2.787 in strokes gained: putting. After recording but 25 putts on day one, Piercy limped-in with 32 in round two.
