Scott Piercy turns his attention to this week's PLAYERS in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Piercy is 1-for-4 at TPC Sawgrass with his only paycheck coming in the T22 variety in 2009. The 36-year-old met the terms of his Major Medical Extension with a T16 at the OHL Classic in November (nine starts to spare) and tacked on a runner-up in his next start at the Sony Open just for good measure. He was the first-round leader at the Shell Houston Open (two starts ago) after opening with 9-under-par 63 (tying tournament record) and bobbed and weaved to a 74-66-74 finish to place 10th.

Scott Piercy limped in with a final-round, 2-over-par 36-38=74 at the Shell Houston Open, but his 11-under 277 was enough to record his first top 10 in five trips to the Golf Club of Houston.

Playing in the final pairing, Piercy squared five bogeys against three birdies on the day. His hopes of getting off to a good start were quashed early with errant drives at Nos. 2 and 5 costing him stroke penalties. Still, with bounce-back birdies on the third and sixth holes, he managed to make the turn even par on his round. A birdie at the par-4 14th briefly had him at 14-under and still in view of the leaders, but he stumbled into the clubhouse with bogeys on three of his last four holes.
Apr 5 - 6:44 PM

Scott Piercy stormed back into contention with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in today's third round of the Shell Houston Open to share the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 13-under 203.

The overnight leader after 18 holes, Piercy dropped to T18 after struggling throughout his second-round 74. He bounced back today with his second bogey-free round of the tournament, circling six birdies and leading the field with 18 in total. Two of today's conversions ranged 13-16 feet. He's in some uncharted territory here at the Golf Club of Houston as he's not logged a top-20 finish in his previous four attempts.
Apr 4 - 4:46 PM

Overnight leader Scott Piercy regressed to a 2-over-par 39-35=74 in his second round of the Shell Houston Open to post 7-under 137 at the break, five strokes back of the 36-hole lead.

It's Pick Your Cliché Day at the Golf Club of Houston. Two of the finalists are "it's hard to follow a low round with another" and "it's a marathon and not a sprint." Piercy hit 14 greens in regulation today, but he found only three birdies, two of which from outside 12 feet. He also failed to save par on the other four holes and squared three bogeys and a double. The votes are in. The winner is, "that's golf."
Apr 3 - 8:07 PM

Scott Piercy authored a bogey-free, 9-under-par 33-30=63 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, tying the course record at the Golf Club of Houston.

He joined Adam Scott (2008), Johnson Wagner (2008), Phil Mickelson (2011) and Jimmy Walker (2011) as those with a 63 on the books. (The course first hosted this event in 2006.) Piercy did it in style, too, rolling in a walk-off birdie from 31'5" at the par-3 ninth hole. Two other notable birdies dropped from 13'3" at the par-4 10th and six yards from just off the green at the par-4 third. He went 9-for-17 in scoring opportunities. Given nine birdies and his conversion percentage, it's no surprise that he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check (5.584). This is Piercy's lowest aggregate since he capped a solo third at the 2013 WM Phoenix Open with a career-tying-low 61.
Apr 2 - 2:26 PM

Scott Piercy carded a very impressive 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and reaches the 54-hole mark at 2-over 218.

Pierce began his day on the back nine and TPC San Antonio and jumped into red numbers with a 40'9" birdie on the par-3 13th hole before picking up another on the par-5 14th. He then added birdies on each of the two par 5s on the front nine to go with a pair of bogeys. He gained well over two strokes tee-to-green for the day despite splitting just eight of 14 fairways and landing half of the GIR. That is a strong indication as to just how tough the course was playing on Saturday.
Mar 28 - 4:12 PM

Scott Piercy spun a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic and is even-par 210 through 54 holes.

Piercy circled four birdies and squared just three bogeys on his lap around PGA National's Champion Course, with a 24'9" effort on the par-4 eighth the highlight. He erased three of those with bogeys. As the leaderboard continues to take shape, he is certainly in the running for a top-10 finish when action concludes sometime on Monday.
Mar 1 - 2:35 PM

Scott Piercy carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

He went 5-for-13 in opportunities to break par, all dropping for birdie and all from inside seven feet. Piercy also squared a bogey-5 at the second hole and a double bogey at the par-4 11th, but he'd walk off leading the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green. At last check, his clip read 5.836. He's been quiet since a solo second at Waialae, so it's refreshing to see him back in contention, even on a Thursday.
Feb 26 - 12:56 PM

Scott Piercy turns his attention to Riviera Country Club for the Northern Trust Open.

Piercy would seem to be a decent fit for this layout due to his length and roots on the west coast, but that hasn't translated into success in this event. He has made three of five cuts, but his best finish was a T45 in 2011. Just two of his 15 rounds have been under par. It is probably best to wait for another time to invest in his direction.
Feb 17 - 9:04 PM

Scott Piercy polished off his week at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round to post 14-under 266, good for outright runner-up honors.

Piercy's four birdies on 13 greens hit included conversions from 10 feet, 20'4" and 23'9" at the first, second and 10th holes, respectively. He also saved par from 12'2" at the par-3 11th and negotiated a zero-putt par from four yards just off the green at the par-3 17th. Of course, he never challenged champion Jimmy Walker, who won by nine, but Piercy recorded the first second-place finish of his career. He has two victories. While he met the terms of his Major Medical Extension at Mayakoba, he remained 11.4 FedExCup points shy of qualifying for THE PLAYERS, an objective that was still attainable in his next nine starts (the excess when he fulfilled his MME). Today's haul of a cool 300 achieved that. He's now ninth in the overall standings.
Jan 18 - 9:20 PM

Scott Piercy navigated Waialae Country Club in 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Sony Open and is 10-under 200 for the tournament.

Piercy spread four birdies, two bogeys and an eagle across his scorecard. The eagle fell at the par-5 ninth hole from 18'3", and he also experienced another highlight with a birdie from 20'2" on the par-3 fourth hole. He is sitting on the bubble for a top-10 finish at the end of the third round, and a solid effort on Sunday should result in just that.
Jan 17 - 9:19 PM

Scott Piercy readies for his seventh start at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Piercy easily met the terms of his Major Medical Extension and is now ready to rock in 2015. With that task out of the way, he is free to focus his attention on getting back to the winner's circle. He has now gone 50 tournaments since his last win, the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. The short nature of Waialae Country Club allows Piercy to be very flexible when it comes to club selection off the tee. That makes him an appealing sleeper in daily fantasy formats.
Jan 14 - 8:28 PM

Scott Piercy closed the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a field-tying-low, 6-under-par 35-30=65 to post 10-under 274, good for a share of 16th place worth $85,572.29.

Piercy was even through 12 holes at El Camaleón today. He then ripped off four birdies and an eagle coming home (on holes 4-9). Overall, he rose 28 spots on the leaderboard to easily eclipse the minimum required to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension, doing so by $56,498. He still had nine starts remaining on it. As a result of this goal achieved, he will play out of the MME category for the remainder of 2014-15. Piercy also collected 52 FedExCup points and sits 25th in the standings entering the holiday break. For the record, he fell 11.140 FedExCup points short of that optional route toward meeting the terms of the MME.

Scott Piercy posted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

While it's a foregone conclusion that he's going to play his way out of a Major Medical Extension, it would be an early holiday gift if he put the whole thing behind him entering the break. Piercy is well on his way after today's effort. He missed only one of 14 fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation en route to five birdies. He squared only one bogey, that a 5 at the 16th hole. He needs just $29,077 of 63.140 FedExCup points to fulfill the terms of the medical. Piercy would get there with a two-way T37 worth $29,280.00. (To achieve the same objective with FedExCup points, he would need to finish alone in 12th place at the Mayakoba.)
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 12:42:00 PM

Scott Piercy completed 36 holes of the Sanderson Farms Championship in 3-over-par 72-75=147 and will miss the cut.

So much for fulfilling the terms of his Major Medical Extension in a diluted field. He hit 25 greens in regulation and circled two birdies in each round, but swallowed four bogeys and a triple bogey-7 at the eighth hole today. It was the penultimate of his walk, but even a par may not have been enough to get to the weekend. Instead, he'll leave town with 10 starts remaining on his MME to collect $29,077 or 63.140 FedExCup points and retain status. It's just a matter of time before this narrative is ancient history, so remain patient. He'll try again at next week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
