World No. 60 Scott Piercy crafted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 7-under 203, up eight places to T9, five in arrears of 54-hole leader James Hahn.
This is the 38-year-old's seventh appearance with mixed results on his previous six. He owns two top 15s, including a T5 in 2013 (66-68-66-72), but WD after a first-round 72 in 2015 and missed cuts on debut in 2009 and again last year after 65-75. The Las Vegas native and resident checked in off four consecutive stroke-play missed cuts, lowlighted by a 20-over 80-84 at last week's PLAYERS, MCing by 18 and DFL of 145 golfers. All is forgotten, as he opened this week in 68-69, T17 at halftime, and climbed inside the top 10 with eight birdies outpacing two bogeys and double bogey-6 at six (3-putt from 9'6"). It was a mixed bag with the flat stick (-0.301 in SG: Putting), missing two scoring tries from inside of eight feet but walked off with his long of 14'5" for birdie-3 at 18. Piercy was No. 1 in R3 in proximity at 19'5" and is No. 1 thru 54 holes in SG: Approach-the-Green (9.326), including 4.164 in R3. May 20 - 7:32 PM

World No. 57 Scott Piercy is at TPC Sawgrass for his seventh appearance in THE PLAYERS Championship and checks in at 60th in the FedExCup standings.

The SDSU alum ended calendar-year 2016 as the No. 36-ranked player in the world so he's heading the wrong direction. He began the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with four top 25s in five events, three of those top 10s and two of those top 5s, but hasn't cracked the top 30 in hist last 10 starts. Since the return from the 6-week break for the holidays, the 38-year-old has missed four cuts with a best of T32 at the no-cut WGC-Mexico. He's 2-for-6 at THE PLAYERS, kicking off with T22 on debut in 2009 and adding T23 last year (70-68-75-71), sandwiching four missed cuts. The Las Vegas native and resident's scoring average in 16 laps over the par-72 layout is 72.63.

World No. 50 Scott Piercy contests his third Masters Tournament and is paired the first two rounds with 2003 champ Mike Weir and first-timer Billy Hurley III.

This is the 38-year-old's third appearance after T29 last year (70-72-79-74) and T54 in 2013. He's a cumulative 16-over-par in the eight rounds with a 74.00 scoring average. The Las Vegas native and resident qualified three ways, twice for being in the Top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings, and the final way from a T2 at last year's U.S. Open at Oakmont CC (PA). Overall, this is his 16th major appearance with seven prior missed cuts and two top 10s, with a T5 at the 2013 PGA Championship joining last year's co-runner-up at Oakmont. Piercy arrives at 40th in the FedExCup standings and off a Group-Stage exit at Match Play (0-3-0). He's 11-for-13 on the season with four top 25s, three of those top 10s, and a best of T3 at the season-opener in Napa.

Scott Piercy readies for his second look at Austin Country Club ahead of this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Starting his week in Group 13, Scott Piercy will take on Bubba Watson, Thomas Pieters, and Jhonattan Vegas in the opening Round Robin stage. In three previous trips to this event, Piercy is 3-2-2, including last year where he went 1-0-2 in group stages. While the San Diego State product does have that course knowledge from last year, his current form is nothing to write home about. Over his last five starts he's missed the cut twice and hasn't finished better than T32 in the process.

World No. 36 Scott Piercy twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 6-under 136, up 44 places on the leaderboard to T10 with play still in progress.

The 38-year-old is making his ninth appearance with a best of solo 3rd in 2013, which included a tied-career-low 61 in the final round. He kicked off with an indifferent even-par 71 (two birdies, two bogeys), but caught fire in a second round that featured six birdies on 15 greens in regulation, highlighted by a near-ace at the raucous par-3 16th, tapping in from seven inches. The Las Vegas native and resident nearly holed out at the par-4 10th as well, sticking his approach from 91 yards to five inches. His long of the day traveled 33'7" for birdie-2 at three.

Scott Piercy sits inside the top 10 on the FedExCup leaderboard ahead of his appointment with Waialae Country Club at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Piercy got off to a quick start in the fall, collecting a three-pack of top 10s in addition to a T24 and a T63. That has him positioned ninth in the FedExCup race. Now he readies for Waialae CC, a course where he's already posted four top 15s in eight trips, including a runner-up finish in 2015. It's been very boom-or-bust here for the Las Vegas resident, missing the cut in three of his eight visits, as well. The three-time PGA TOUR winner is always a threat to contend and this week is no different.

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).

Scott Piercy authored a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 16-under 197, two back of 54-hole leader Gary Woodland.

The 38-year-old began the day in solo third and that's where he finished following a seven-birdie two-bogey showing. He was bogey-free 6-under thru 13 holes before sandwiching birdie-2 at 15 with bogey-5s at 14 and 16. The SDSU alum striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies for a second time this week (R1). He's chasing his fourth TOUR title, first since the 2015 Barbasol where he was the 54-hole leader. Piercy, who'll play out of the final threesome for a second straight day, led the season-opening Safeway after rounds 1 and 2 (62-67) before 73-70 for T3.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Scott Piercy tacked on a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 11-under 131, up three spots to solo second, two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

The 38-year-old is making his seventh appearance with a best of T16 last year (67-69-73-65). He digressed a bit in today's second frame, dipping to nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, but improved to 1.615 putts per GIR circling six birdies against a lone bogey-4 at the 15th.

Scott Piercy kicked off the 10th OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 to throw his name inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard as play winds day on day one.

Piercy has been busy during the Fall, playing his fifth event of the new season already. This is also the fourth different country he's played in during the 2016-17 campaign. He's showing no signs of fatigue, though, trading seven birdies with one bogey in round one. Ball-striking was the name of the game as he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. Piercy's putter can be erratic at times but he'll remain in the mix if he can keep up this steady ball-striking as the week progresses.

Scott Piercy spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach 12-under 201, up 22 places on the live leaderboard to T5, one shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Russell Henley.

The Las Vegas native and resident is making his 11th appearance in his hometown event, also his home course, with a best of T6 in 2012. This is his fourth consecutive start of the 2016-17 season, kicking off with T3 (Safeway) and T10 (CIMB) before a disappointing T63 (of 78) last week in China. The 37-year-old began the third frame on 6-under (T27) after opening in twin 68s. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in the latter at 88.89 percent (48/54). The SDSU alum circled six birdies, two of which were 2-putt varieties, for 1.765 putts per GIR and a pedestrian 0.345 SG: Putting. He's in a good spot heading into the finale, blemish-free over his last 35 holes.

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.

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.
