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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

Scott Piercy completed The McGladrey Classic in 8-under-par 67-67-68-70=272 to finish in a five-way tie for 17th place.

He led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 7.933, but placed 65th in strokes gained: putting at -2.710. The latter split included a reading of -3.680 in the finale during which he hit 17 greens in regulation and found just two birdies, only to erase them with as many bogeys. Nevertheless, Piercy collected $78,400.00 and 52 FedExCup points. He now has 11 starts to earn a mere $29,077 or 63.140 FedExCup points to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension. Fittingly, he's now 17th in the FedExCup standings.

Scott Piercy shot a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 8-under 202 and sit one stroke off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Piercy went 5-for-14 in birdie chances at Seaside today, including a conversion from 28'8" at the par-4 14th hole. He also poured in a par save from 13'1" at the par-5 15th. However, he also squared three bogeys, including a pair of three-putts to thwart a stronger push. He's only $107,477 or 115.140 FedExCup points shy of fulfilling the terms of his Major Medical Extension. Even if he doesn't earn the full nut on Sunday in Sea Island, he'll still have 11 starts remaining to finish it off.

Scott Piercy has signed for a pair of 3-under-par 33-34=67s to open The McGladrey Classic.

After a T7 at home in Vegas, Piercy's form made the trip east to Seaside where he's erased four bogeys with 10 birdies, including four in today's walk. The set featured a 13'5" conversion at the par-4 fourth hole and a 14-yard hole-out from in front of the green at the par-4 14th, but the story of the day was that he saved par thrice from outside 11 feet. The longest putt measured 22'2" at the par-3 third, which interestingly chased a par from 16'7" at the par-4 second where he hit the green in regulation. That happens sometimes when the first roll starts nearly 73 feet from the cup. His only blemish was a three-jack bogey from 54'1" at the par-4 13th. At 6-under 134, he's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Scott Piercy kept the pedal down at TPC Summerlin en route to a share of seventh place at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The local turned in respective rounds of 67, 67, 67 and 69 to post 14-under 270. It's his first top 10 anywhere since a T5 at the 2013 PGA Championship. For today's success, he earned $193,233.33 and 85 FedExCup points to take a sizable bite into his Major Medical Extension. He'll head to The McGladrey Classic with 12 remaining to collect $107,477 or 115.140 FedExCup points and retain status. It seems ludicrous to think that he won't meet those terms with starts to spare, but just in case he doesn't, keep in mind that he cleared the hurdle for conditional status by 0.100 FedExCup points today.

Scott Piercy signed for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is safely inside the top 10 at 12-under 201 with 18 to play.

Piercy's seven birdies outpaced his three bogeys at TPC Summerlin. Four of those birdies were from longer than 20 feet, but two of those were biggies. He chipped in from 76'8" on the par-4 fourth and followed that up with a 70'8" birdie from off the green on the par-4 10th hole. He is playing on a Major Medical Extension and stands an excellent chance at taking a big chunk out of the $300,170 or 200.140 FedExCup points needed to satisfy that requirement.

Scott Piercy shot a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Piercy lives locally, so he clearly wasn't distracted by any factors directly related to that fact. He hit 13 greens in regulation and rolled in seven birdies, four of which from outside 13 feet. The subset included conversions from 21'6" at the par-4 second hole and 49'2" at the par-3 eighth. He also squared a double bogey-6 at No. 12, where he rinsed his approach, and a bogey-4 at 5, but he's just two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders. At last check, Piercy's strokes gained: putting metric read 2.859, good for sixth-highest in the field of 144.
