Scott Piercy orchestrated a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the U.S. Open to post 1-under 279, up five places on the live leaderboard into a three-way T2. UPDATE: With play completed, Piercy finished in a three-way T2, three back of champion Dustin Johnson.
This was the 37-year-old's fifth appearance with a previous best (and lone cash) a T51 in 2011 at Congressional. He began the final round in a two-way T7 on even-par, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Shane Lowry. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he mustered five (of 14) fairways, but pelted 13 greens in regulation and totaled 30 putts. The Las Vegas native and resident birdied Nos. 1, 2 and 12 and was blemish-free thru 15 holes before bogeys on 16 and 18. This is just his second top 10 of the season in 17 starts with the other a T7 at the CIMB back in November. It's also his career best and second top 10 in 13 major appearances (T5, 2013 PGA Championship). Jun 19 - 8:03 PM

Scott Piercy survived his second round of the day (and week) at Oakmont Country Club, signing an even-par 36-34=70 to reach 2-under 138 on the week.

Piercy found 17 greens in regulation during the second round, but couldn't get the flat stick to cooperate. The grounds crew rolled the greens in-between rounds one and two, increasing the speed by over a foot on the Stimpmeter compared to his morning round, and he struggled to adjust. Piercy circled five birdies today, but three-putted on four occasions to give back those strokes on the green. Through two rounds he's split 71 percent of fairways and landed 78 percent of greens. His ball-striking has him inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard, but he'll need to figure out the green speeds over the weekend if he wants to remain in contention.

Scott Piercy pieced together a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during the first round of the 116th U.S. Open Championship, placing him inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard as the second wave of golfers begin to close out their opening 18 holes.

Piercy needed a 15-footer to save par at the par-4 third hole, but that key putt propelled him to a three-hole birdie train including a 31-footer at the par-4 fifth hole as the caboose. The San Diego State product split 10 (of 14) fairways to keep the plot rather drama-free. Piercy found himself in a share of the lead after a tap-in birdie at the par-3 13th hole, knocking the 182-yard tee shot to just three feet. He swallowed a pair of bogeys heading into the clubhouse, but remains just two back entering round two. He entered the week with a 1-for-4 record at the U.S. Open with a T51 (2011) as his best.

Scott Piercy is in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, for the 116th U.S. Open and tees it up the first two rounds with India's Anirban Lahiri and Jamie Donaldson of Wales.

This is the 37-year-old's fifth appearance, first since missing the cut by six in 2013 (Merion GC) after rounds of 14-over 78-76=154. His overall scoring average in 10 career rounds is 74.50 and cashed a lone paycheck with T51 in 2011 at Congressional. The Las Vegas native and resident is a three-time winner on TOUR in 207 career events, most recently at the 2015 Barbasol Championship. He's 14-for-16 this season with eight top 25s, but just one for a top 10 (T7, CIMB). Piercy finished T29 at the Masters and has since posted: T23-CUT-T67-T69.

Scott Piercy opened his week at the AT&T Byron Nelson with a 5-under-par 34-31=65, currently two strokes off the pace set by Sergio Garcia.

Piercy circled his first birdie of the week at the par-3 second hole, but it wasn't all smooth sailing today. He missed a 4'9" par-saving attempt at the par-3 fifth hole and needed three par-saving putts to drop from outside six feet before making the turn at 1-under. His approach play was great today, landing 14 greens despite just seven fairways hit. Piercy splashed home two more par-savers from outside six feet on his way into the clubhouse. This was a bit more stressful than you'd like to see out of a 5-under round, but the score written on the card is all that matters in the end.

Scott Piercy makes a return trip to TPC Four Seasons for his sixth appearance at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

Piercy arrives this week ranked 61st in the FedExCup standings, thanks to eight top 25s in 13 starts. The bomber is hitting greens at a very high clip, currently ranked 27th on TOUR in that regard. His course history pops for gamers as well, posting top 30s in three of his five visits, although he withdrew during the second round at last year's edition. Piercy makes for a great play in all formats this week.

Scott Piercy navigated Augusta National Golf Club with an even-par 35-37=72 during the second round of the 80th Masters, arriving at 2-under 142 through 36 holes, with an early share of the clubhouse lead.

Piercy remained accurate off the tee, striping 10 (of 14) fairways today (22 on the week). The putter was hot to start the round, splashing home 45 feet of putts over a three-hole stretch, beginning at the par-5 second hole. Piercy also added a 14-foot birdie roll on the par-5 13th. He'd like to have one back at the par-3 16th hole as he missed from inside four feet to swallow his fifth bogey of the week. Piercy sits at T2 on the live leaderboard, sharing the early clubhouse lead with Danny Lee, while Spieth is out on the course setting the pace ahead of them.

Making his second start at the Masters, Scott Piercy fired a 2-under-par 33-37=70 during the opening round of the 80th edition of the event.

Piercy recorded a T54 in his 2013 Masters debut, but signed three scorecards of 75 or worse that week. A score of 75 looked far-fetched after an eagle at the par-5 second and birdie at the par-3 fourth hole got him to 3-under early. The round looked to be slipping away as he made the turn, though, missing a five-foot par-saving attempt at the 10th and splashing his approach shot on the par-4 11th hole. Piercy dropped three shots over that stretch but got two of them back as he came into the clubhouse with birdies at the 13th and 15th. Piercy's ball-striking was on point today, striping 12 (of 14) fairways. The real test will come as the week progresses to see how he performs when/if his ball-striking isn't in top shape for a round or two.
Apr 7 - 8:17 PM

Scott Piercy looks to play the spoiler role as he readies for this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Piercy was last seen at this event giving away a match to Justin Rose in the 2014 edition. The bomber immediately went under the knife following the loss, to repair a torn tendon in his right elbow. His showing in 2013 was a better representation of what he's capable of when healthy. He ousted Paul Lawrie 4 and 3 and then dismantled Luke Donald 7 and 6, before losing a heart-breaker to Steve Stricker. Piercy will kick off his week with matches against Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, and Byeong-hun An. Gamers should consider him a very lively sleeper.

Despite just eight greens in regulation, Scott Piercy rebounded with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for a three-day tally of 3-under 213, up 12 places on the live leaderboard to T14.

The 37-year-old's opening 66 had him co-leading after 18 holes but chased with a two-birdie 77 on day two. He responded with three circles in his first four holes on Saturday -- including a 63-foot prayer at the par-4 second and a 16-footer for birdie-2 at the fourth. Piercy's dropped shots were a three-putt at the sixth and a missed four-footer at the par-3 ninth for a failed scramble. On a bogey-free 1-under inward half, he was buoyed by a hole-out birdie at the par-4 11th from a green side bunker and a par save from 12'7" at the 14th from the fringe. A couple of zero putts en route to just 24 strokes with the flat stick in round three.

Overnight co-leader Scott Piercy crashed and burned to a 5-over-par 39-38=77 in the second round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship for a 36-hole aggregate of 1-under 143, nine shots adrift of 36-hole leader Adam Scott.

Piercy co-lead with Australia's Marcus Fraser after a confidence-building 66 on day one. It was his fourth 18-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 200th career start and first since the 2015 CIMB Classic where eventually finished T7. Interestingly enough, both he and Fraser (not playing together) are tied again after day two, but they're down 25 places on the leaderboard after twin 77s. The 37-year-old was 7-under thru his first 13 holes on day one, but he's now now played his last 23 holes in 6-over. As would be expected his stats in R2 dipped to just six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation and a -2.787 in strokes gained: putting. After recording but 25 putts on day one, Piercy limped-in with 32 in round two.
Mar 4 - 6:10 PM

Scott Piercy torched Trump National Doral’s Blue Monster Course to the tune of a 6-under-par 31-35=66 to jump out to an early lead at this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Piercy was splashing home putts from everywhere today. His first two birdies were warmups, a tap-in at the par-5 first and then from 3'10" on the par-4 second hole. After that, he rolled in five birdies from outside 14 feet. Piercy walked off the 18th green with 4.643 strokes gained:putting. It was all made possible thanks to some great position off the tee, landing 10 (of 14) fairways on the day, giving him the ability to fire at pins. If conditions get any harder as the week progresses, this round could go a long way toward adding another trophy to his mantle.
Mar 3 - 4:10 PM

Scott Piercy returns for his second WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral -- first since T25 in 2013 -- and is paired the first two days with Australia's Nathan Holman and Jamie Donaldson of Wales.

In 24 prior starts in WGC's, majors, and THE PLAYERS, Piercy owns two top 10s, both in 2013, a T2 at the WGC-HSBC Champions and T5 at the PGA Championship. He's a three-time winner on TOUR in 199 career events, but two have been in opposite-field events, the latest at the 2015 inaugural Barbasol Championship. This is not to say that the 37-year-old is not a big-game hunter, but he did finish 25th (of 28) at last year's TOUR Championship and T24 (of 32) at the Hyundai TOC to kick off 2016. That said, he did qualify for those exclusive no-cut events, so there's that. Piercy missed the cut by eight at last week's Honda after 77-74.
Mar 2 - 2:41 PM

Scott Piercy orchestrated a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in round two of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 5-under 137, up 72 places on the live leaderboard to T8.

Piercy opened his eighth appearance at TPC Scottsdale with 1-over 72 (three birdies, four bogeys) but rebounded in a big way. Of those that have finished, his 65 is low loop of the round, and stands a good chance of staying that way. The 37-year-old kicked it off with back-to-back circles on four and five (from inside six feet) but retreated one with a failed scramble at the par-4 sixth to turn in 1-under. The floodgates opened with a 15'3" birdie-3 at 11, chased by a 14-footer at 12, and capped with an eagle at the par-5 13th from 16'3". He polished-off a bogey-free inward 31 with birdie-2 at the raucous par-3 16th from 5'1" and at last check, led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 8.363.
Feb 5 - 5:17 PM

Scott Piercy returns to the desert for an eighth appearance at this week's Waste Management Open.

Piercy arrives with a 6-for-6 record this year, posting top 25s in four of them. That's not the best part, though, as the bomber owns top 15s in five (of seven) WMPO starts. As someone who was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, it's easy to see why he would play well in this region. Gamers should give Piercy a very serious look this week when setting rosters.
