Scott Piercy breezed through TPC Kuala Lumpur with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round three of the CIMB Classic, reaching the three-quarter mark on 13-under 203.
After twin 68s to open the week, Piercy posted one better today. He landed 16 greens in regulation on the round and currently ranks T11 in that regard this week (43-of-54). That's nothing new for Piercy who ranked 52nd in GIR percentage last season. With a T7 in his CIMB debut last year, the Las Vegas resident should feel plenty comfortable on Sunday when he makes a push for the winner's circle. His last victory came at the 2015 Barbasol Championship. Oct 22 - 2:11 AM

Scott Piercy continued his climb up the CIMB Classic leaderboard, styling a 4-under-par 33-35=68 during round two, reaching halftime in a share of eight place on 8-under 136.

The San Diego State alum split nine (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation. From there, he stuck to the script, circling birdies on three of the four par 5s. It's been a balanced attack for Piercy this week who enters the weekend ranked T33 in the field for driving accuracy, T31 in GIR, and 25th in putts per GIR. The Las Vegas resident finished T7 in his CIMB debut last year and through two rounds he's on pace for another top 10 this week.

First- and second-round leader Scott Piercy back-pedaled with a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in today's final round of the Safeway Open to conclude his fourth appearance on 16-under 272, down one place into a four-way T3, two in arrears to champion Brendan Steele.

The 37-year-old began the final round in a two-way T2 on 14-under, one adrift of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Patton Kizzire. Playing out of the final threesome, he got off to a horrific start, making the turn in birdie-less 2-over with squares on 7 and 9 on failed scrambles. The Las Vegas native and resident awoke to card five birdies on his inward half, including three straight on holes 10-12, muted slightly by a third bogey at the par-4 13th, using the flat stick three times though statistically not a 3-putt (same as hole 9). Two of his back-nine birdies traveled greater than 26 feet, adding a walk-off birdie-4 at the 18th from 12'11". This was his first top-10 finish on TOUR since consecutive runner-up finishes last season at the U.S. Open and WGC-Bridgestone. After opening with a course-record 62, Piercy chased with rounds of 67-73-70.

First- and second-round leader Scott Piercy backed up with a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the two-day third round of the Safeway Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 14-under 202, down one spot into a two-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire.

The 37-year-old began the third frame (Saturday) with a three-shot lead over Johnson Wagner and Paul Casey. Playing out of the final threesome, he was 1-over thru 15 holes, outpacing birdie-3 at four (from 4'4") with bogeys at six and 14 on failed scrambles when play was nixed due to heavy rain. The San Diego State alum returned on Sunday morning (with 15 others) to par his final three holes, including a par-saver from 10'9" at the par-5 18th. He circled his lone birdie on 12 greens in regulation for a dismal 1.917 putts per GIR and -1.328 in SG: Putting. Piercy was negative across the board in all strokes gained categories in R3 but is still No. 1 in SG: Tee-to-Green (cumulative 8.817), despite a -0.629 in the third round.
Oct 16 - 11:54 AM

Overnight (overnight) leader Scott Piercy fashioned a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day second round of the Safeway Open to reach 15-under 129, good for a three-shot lead over Johnson Wagner and Paul Casey at the midpoint.

The 37-year-old led by two over Casey and second-year man Patton Kizzire with a course-record 62 on day 1 (12 birdies, 2 bogeys). He hardly skipped a beat in the second frame, despite Friday's weather delay of 2 hours and 36 minutes. Prior to the eventual stoppage due to darkness, the San Diego State alum got 12 holes completed, circling birdies on Nos. 5 and 10, adding a 42-yard hole-out for eagle on the par-5 ninth. He returned on Saturday to play his final six holes in 1-under, kicking in a gimme at the par-4 17th from 10 inches after stiffing his approach from 123 yards. Piercy peppered 17 greens in regulation, contributing to 4.700 SG: Tee-to-Green, though a -0.570 in SG: Putting, understandably down from a sizzling 4.269 SGP in round 1.
Oct 15 - 12:57 PM

Scott Piercy circled birdies in bunches on his way toward a 10-under-par 32-30=62 during the opening round of the Safeway Open, setting the course record and staking his claim of the clubhouse lead.

Piercy opened his day at the par-4 10th and found six birdies before making the turn. That included a measly par at the par-5 16th. The story of the day was a hot flat stick, rolling in seven putts from outside 10 feet in addition to a 22'11" hole out birdie from off the green at the par-4 13th. The San Diego State product walked off the course gaining 4.419 strokes putting. This goes in the books as the new course record at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course, previously 63 recorded by Brendan Steele and Andrew Loupe in last year's edition. This is also Piercy's lowest round since a first-round 62 last November at the CIMB Classic. In his last Napa appearance he signed rounds of 74-73 to miss the cut.
Oct 13 - 3:48 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 6:24 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 5:50 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 5:17 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 8:20 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 1:49 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 7:46 PM

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.
