This is Piercy's second trip to the season finale after T15 in 2013 on rounds of 67-73-71-70. His season highlight was winning the inaugural Barbasol Championship by three for his third TOUR victory in his 185th career start and first since the 2012 RBC Canadian Open.

It was his fifth top 10 of the season on 27 starts and eighth top 25, but has also missed nine cuts. The 36-year-old opened the postseason with T62 at The Barclays and a missed cut by one at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Sep 22 - 9:23 AM

Scott Piercy rallied to a 1-under-par 38-32=70 in today's final round of the BMW Championship to wrap his fourth appearance at 15-under 269, good for solo third but seven adrift of champion Jason Day.

After posting 67-65-67, Piercy began his final frame at 14-under (T2) and six adrift of playing partner Day. In search of his fourth PGA TOUR victory in his 190th start, including winning at this season's Barbasol Championship, Piercy opened with three pars before swallowing bogey, double bogey at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. He broke the ice with birdie at the par-5 eighth (from 4'6"), but gave it right back with bogey at the ninth to turn 2-over. The 36-year-old responded with a bogey-free inward half, circling four birdies over his last five holes, including three straight on holes 14-16. His walk-off birdie-4 at the last assured him a spot at East Lake, jumping from 44th in the FedExCup standings entering the week to 20th. Piercy's previous best at the BMW was T37 in 2012.

Scott Piercy continued his destruction of Conway Farms with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of this week's BMW Championship.

The bomber traded six birdies with just a pair of bogeys to climb into a share of second-place entering the final round. Piercy has impressively squared just four bogeys on the week, ranking T3 in bogey prevention on the week. He's reached the 54-hole mark at 14-under 199 and is currently projected at 13th in the FedExCup race if the week were to end today.

Scott Piercy fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the BMW Championship to reach the halfway point in 10-under 132, eight swings back of Jason Day's 36-hole lead.

The return trip to Conway Farms Golf Club might turn out to be a race for second place, but 30 will advance to next week's TOUR Championship where anyone can win the FedExCup. Piercy is 44th in points upon arrival at the BMW and he'll need to keep it floored on the weekend to book a trip to Atlanta. In the meantime, he can enjoy replaying today's round that featured 16 greens in regulation, an eagle-3 and four birdies. All of his conversions were from inside 10 feet.

With a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the BMW Championship, Scott Piercy owns very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Only 121 minutes separate all 70 tee times today, but Piercy went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Conway Farms today, so it's still "very early," relatively speaking. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit just 11 greens in regulation, but connected for six birdies, including an 11-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-3 11th hole. His longest conventional conversions dropped for birdies from 15'2" and 19'1" at Nos. 8 and 16, respectively. Piercy also squared two bogeys. He arrived for the third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 44th in points, so he may need another trio of 67s, if not lower, to advance.

Scott Piercy returns for a second look at Conway Farms during this week's BMW Championship.

The bomber arrived with top 15s in two-of-three starts prior to finishing T69 here in 2013. Conway Farms does not require a lot of club off the tee, so its no surprise that the bottom of the leaderboard was littered with its fair share of bombers. Piercy is always dangerous a a three-time PGA TOUR winner, but there are better weeks for gamers to invest.
Sep 15 - 11:34 PM

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.

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.

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".
