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. Nov 16 - 5:00 PM

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.
Nov 7 - 1:19 PM

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.
Oct 26 - 6:18 PM

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.
Oct 25 - 4:53 PM

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.
Oct 19 - 8:43 PM

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.
Oct 18 - 7:17 PM

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.
Oct 16 - 4:00 PM

Scott Piercy completed 36 holes of the Open in 3-over-par 74-73=147 and will miss the cut.

He hit 23 greens in regulation and converted three birdies in each round, but squared five bogeys and two double bogey-7s to clinch the weekend off. It's an ominous start to a season in which he figures to pay dividends in all formats, especially salary games, but this takes a bit out of his Major Medical Extension nonetheless. Piercy now has 13 starts to earn $300,710 or 200.140 FedExCup points and retain status. He'll try again at next week's Shriners where he the Las Vegas resident gets to sleep in his own bed.
Oct 10 - 9:40 PM

Scott Piercy is scheduled to compete in next week's Open.

Every year, there's at least one golfer that falls through the loopholes in the provisions in salary games. Piercy is this year's poster boy. He was 7-for-12 and missed five months due to a torn flexor digitorum superficialis in his right arm. He had surgery shortly after getting knocked out in the first round of the Match Play. Now equipped with 14 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn 200.140 FedExCup points or $300,710, he's an automatic to meet the terms with room to spare and retain status for the remainder of the season. With a price tag of just $411,635 in unadjusted salary formats, he's a steal.
Oct 4 - 2:27 PM

Scott Piercy closed out his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship.

Piercy circled seven birdies and surrendered two bogeys on his navigation of Sedgefield CC. His only birdie roll of note came at the par-4 first hole, falling from 24'5". While his 12-under 278 will not be enough to boost him inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings to secure a spot in the Playoffs, it will send him into the brief off season on a high note. Though his exemption for winning the 2012 RBC Canadian Open is expiring, it is expected that he will receive additional starts on a Medical Extension next season due to surgery on his right elbow during the middle of the season.
Aug 17 - 3:32 PM

Scott Piercy torched Sedgefield Country Club for a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

While he shared 25th place in his PGA TOUR return in Canada three weeks ago, this is the kind of round that eliminates any residual doubt over his health. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled six birdies today. He was perfect on all 18 tries inside 11 feet to yield a strokes gained-putting clip of 3.515 for the round at last check. Today's aggregate is his lowest since he closed out the 2013 WM Phoenix Open (18 months ago) with a 61. Piercy is 6-under 134 at the break in Greensboro, just four swings back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 15 - 12:50 PM

Scott Piercy weaved a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

After just two rehab starts on the Tour following four months of being sidelined for surgery on his right elbow, you'd have forgiven Piercy if he missed the cut at Royal Montreal today. Instead, he's 3-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a share of 28th place seven strokes off the 36-hole lead. Now, he did stumble on Thursday, hitting only seven greens in regulation and erasing one birdie with three bogeys, but he went 5-for-5 in scrambling today and picked off five birdies. The set featured a five-yarder from the rough at the par-4 second and conventional conversions from 23'2" and 14'9" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. He also nearly aced the par-3 fifth where ShotTracker lists his birdie putt at one inch. Piercy isn't yet exempt for 2014-15 and he's sure to receive a medical extension, but he may not need it if he can keep this rally rolling on the weekend in Canada.
Jul 25 - 7:17 PM

Scott Piercy shot a 3-under-par 37-31=68 in the opening round of the Utah Championship on the Tour.

Back inside the ropes for the first time since the WGC-Accenture Match Play in February, Piercy stumbled early at Willow Creek Country Club in Sandy today. After a par-par-par starts on the a par 5-3-5 opening on the back side of the course, he bogeyed the par-4 13th and 14th holes. Alas, he recovered and played the final 13 holes in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. Overall, he split six (of 12) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He's planning on competing in next week's Boise Open before returning to the PGA TOUR at the RBC Canadian Open in two weeks. Piercy lives in Las Vegas, so it makes sense that he waited until the western stops of the Tour and after four months had elapsed so that he qualifies for a Major Medical Extension if he needs it for 2014-15.
