Scott Piercy shot 3-over-par 37-36=73 in today's opening round of The Barclays.
He sat out last week's Wyndham as a precaution for a sore back, but his short game let him down today. Piercy hit 12 greens in regulation, but bogeyed five of the other six holes, all on par 4s. His only notable conversion averted another when his try disappeared for par from 26'7" at the par-3 11th hole. He arrived sitting 27th in the FedExCup standings. Aug 27 - 1:45 PM

Scott Piercy has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship, citing a sore back on Twitter.

In response to an inquiry during an impromptu Q&A, Piercy wrote, "Back let me down on weekend headed home to get treatment." He's 27th in the FedExCup standings, so a break in advance of The Barclays makes sense, too. He tied for 48th at Whistling Straits and has cashed in five consecutive starts. That's his longest such streak since he capped the 2013 with six in a row. But regardless of what happens in the Playoffs, he's fulfilled what salary gamers wanted entering the season. As a top talent with a medical extension, it's not too surprising that he yielded a 500-percent increase over last season's earnings.

Scott Piercy chased his opening 68 at the PGA Championship with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 to post 6-under 138 at the halfway point, just one stroke off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader David Lingmerth.

Piercy parked it alongside Jordan Spieth in the clubhouse. The older American split nine (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-14 in scoring chances today. All of Piercy's par breakers found the cup from outside 10 feet, including rides from 20'5" and 35'10" at the par-4 14th and par-5 16th holes, respectively. He has only one top 25 in 10 starts in all four majors, but it was a T5 at Oak Hill in 2013. Combine that experience with the recent form that yielded victory at the Barbasol Championship just four weeks ago and you can't rule out a charge by the 36-year-old on the weekend.

Scott Piercy turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of the PGA Championship, finishing two strokes off the pace of overnight leader Dustin Johnson.

The recent winner in Alabama split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at Whistling Straits today. He outbalanced a lone bogey with five birdies, including a pair from 12-14 feet. Piercy's longest conversion of the round, however, dropped in for par from 17-and-a-half at the par-4 15th hole. Interestingly none of his par breakers occurred on a par 4.
Aug 13 - 8:59 PM

Scott Piercy stalled out to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and at 1-under 215 will not be a part of the Sunday festivities in Oakville, Ontario.

The 2012 RBC champ and last week's winner at the Barbasol Championship was one of 20 players to make the cut on the number and share 72nd place. As such, a second cut of low 70 professionals and ties was required after 54 holes. Joining Piercy with early exits: 215--Jon Curran; Blair Hamilton (a); J.B. Holmes; Lucas Glover; Austin Connelly (a) ... 216--Seung-Yul Noh; Ryo Ishikawa ... 217--Ryan Ruffels (a); Jonathan Randolph; Steven Alker ... 218--Marcelo Rozo ... 221--Blayne Barber.
Jul 25 - 6:26 PM

Scott Piercy cruised to a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the inaugural Barbasol Championship to conclude at 19-under 265, good for a three-stroke victory over Will Wilcox.

Piercy began championship Sunday sharing the 54-hole lead with playing partner Ricky Barnes. The eventual champ took command early with birdies on his first two holes and four of his first six. After a brief hiccup led to bogey at the par-3 eighth, he continued his march with birdies at Nos. 9, 13, 14 and 16 to open a four-shot margin. The 36-year-old squared bogey on 17, but it was moot. This is Piercy's third career PGA TOUR title in 185 starts, the last coming at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. He is now fully exempt through the 2016-17 season, earns a spot into next month's PGA Championship and is projected to move to No. 20 in the FedExCup standings.
Jul 19 - 8:38 PM

Scott Piercy tacked on a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship to post 13-under 200, good for a share of the overnight, 54-hole lead with Ricky Barnes.

Piercy began Moving Day in a nine-way tie for sixth at 7-under and two shots back. On his round, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation for a cumulative 10.136 in strokes gained: tee-to-green, second in that category for the tournament. Piercy jumped out of the gate with birdies on four of his first five holes to turn in 4-under. He added three more par breakers on Nos. 11, 14 and 18 to offset a single dropped shot at the par-4 15th, just his third bogey thru three rounds, T1 in the field in that stat. The 36-year-old's seven-birdie loop matched his total from the first two days giving him 14 on the week, tied 21st in that category. He had several opportunities to go even lower on his day, missing four scoring chances from inside 10 feet, including from eight feet for eagle at the fifth and from 2'8" on the 15th for par. Piercy has two wins on the PGA TOUR in 184 career starts, the last coming at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open.
Jul 18 - 7:12 PM

Scott Piercy fashioned a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round of the Barbasol Championship to post 7-under 135 at the break, one stroke off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

At 42nd in the FedExCup standings, Piercy is highest in the field, so it's not surprising that he's in the mix entering the weekend. He landed 15 greens in regulation and dropped two eagles and a pair of birdies on Grand National's Lake Course today. His longest conversion disappeared for a 3 at the par-5 16th hole, but both of his birdies ranked 13-15 feet.
Jul 17 - 6:48 PM

Scott Piercy reached the midpoint of The Greenbrier Classic in 7-under-par 67-66=133 and sits just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Since a solo 10th in Houston three months ago, Piercy is just 1-for-6 with a T43 at Colonial. That slump included a mysterious mid-tournament withdrawal at TPC Four Seasons. Thus far at The Old White TPC, he's hit 28 greens in regulation led the tournament in par breakers (one eagle, 12 birdies) with 13 when he signed his card today. The eagle dropped from just 25 inches at the par-5 12th in the second round. Meanwhile, today's set of six birdies included a pair from 12-16 feet before he walked off with a birdie-2 at No. 18 from 63'4".
Jul 3 - 1:12 PM

Despite hitting 14 greens in regulation in his opening round of the Memorial, Scott Piercy settled for an even-par 35-37=72.

We still don't know why he called it quits during his second round of last week's Nelson and we can't rule out that he was 100 percent today. He connected for only two birdies and fanned on four tries from eight-and-a-half feet and in. Piercy also swallowed two bogeys, including a three-putt at the par-4 13th. At last check, he ranked 118th in the field of 120 in strokes gained: putting with a clip of -3.796, but at least he's back inside the ropes.
Jun 4 - 6:00 PM

Scott Piercy withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship during his second round.

Piercy completed 11 holes in 3-over-par and was 5-over through 29 when he walked off TPC Four Seasons. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. This is his fourth mid-tournament WD in 181 PGA TOUR starts. It's the fourth time in his last five starts this season that he's failed to cash, but the 36-year-old arrived ranked 41st in the FedExCup standings, so he can absorb a slump. For the time being, he's scheduled to tee it up at next week's Memorial.
May 29 - 8:02 PM

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.
May 5 - 10:34 AM

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."
