Scott Piercy stalled out to a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in today's final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 17-under 267, down one spot into a three-way T4, four adrift of champion Pat Perez, who shot 67.
There's never a good time to swallow a double bogey, particularly not on the 72nd hole as Piercy did today, giving up what would've been a two-way T2. Playing out of the final threesome with Perez and overnight leader Gary Woodland, he began the final frame in solo third, two back. The Las Vegas native and resident climbed to solo second at the break, outpacing bogey-5 at the second with birdies at 3, 5, 6 and 8, but bobbled down the stretch, overshadowing birdies at 15 and 17 with bogeys at 13 and 16 and the aforementioned double. He pelted ALL 14 fairways but mustered just 13 greens in regulation. Piercy has been in the top 10 thru 54 holes in four of his five starts this season but has posted closing rounds of 70-72-70-70, but does record his third top 10 and second top 5 (T3, Safeway).

Scott Piercy authored a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 16-under 197, two back of 54-hole leader Gary Woodland.

The 38-year-old began the day in solo third and that's where he finished following a seven-birdie two-bogey showing. He was bogey-free 6-under thru 13 holes before sandwiching birdie-2 at 15 with bogey-5s at 14 and 16. The SDSU alum striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies for a second time this week (R1). He's chasing his fourth TOUR title, first since the 2015 Barbasol where he was the 54-hole leader. Piercy, who'll play out of the final threesome for a second straight day, led the season-opening Safeway after rounds 1 and 2 (62-67) before 73-70 for T3.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Scott Piercy tacked on a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to post 11-under 131, up three spots to solo second, two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

The 38-year-old is making his seventh appearance with a best of T16 last year (67-69-73-65). He digressed a bit in today's second frame, dipping to nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, but improved to 1.615 putts per GIR circling six birdies against a lone bogey-4 at the 15th.
Nov 11 - 12:29 PM

Scott Piercy kicked off the 10th OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 6-under-par 32-33=65 to throw his name inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard as play winds day on day one.

Piercy has been busy during the Fall, playing his fifth event of the new season already. This is also the fourth different country he's played in during the 2016-17 campaign. He's showing no signs of fatigue, though, trading seven birdies with one bogey in round one. Ball-striking was the name of the game as he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. Piercy's putter can be erratic at times but he'll remain in the mix if he can keep up this steady ball-striking as the week progresses.
Nov 10 - 5:31 PM

Scott Piercy spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach 12-under 201, up 22 places on the live leaderboard to T5, one shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Russell Henley.

The Las Vegas native and resident is making his 11th appearance in his hometown event, also his home course, with a best of T6 in 2012. This is his fourth consecutive start of the 2016-17 season, kicking off with T3 (Safeway) and T10 (CIMB) before a disappointing T63 (of 78) last week in China. The 37-year-old began the third frame on 6-under (T27) after opening in twin 68s. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in the latter at 88.89 percent (48/54). The SDSU alum circled six birdies, two of which were 2-putt varieties, for 1.765 putts per GIR and a pedestrian 0.345 SG: Putting. He's in a good spot heading into the finale, blemish-free over his last 35 holes.
Nov 5 - 5:49 PM

Scott Piercy breezed through TPC Kuala Lumpur with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round three of the CIMB Classic, reaching the three-quarter mark on 13-under 203.

After twin 68s to open the week, Piercy posted one better today. He landed 16 greens in regulation on the round and currently ranks T11 in that regard this week (43-of-54). That's nothing new for Piercy who ranked 52nd in GIR percentage last season. With a T7 in his CIMB debut last year, the Las Vegas resident should feel plenty comfortable on Sunday when he makes a push for the winner's circle. His last victory came at the 2015 Barbasol Championship.
Oct 22 - 2:11 AM

Scott Piercy continued his climb up the CIMB Classic leaderboard, styling a 4-under-par 33-35=68 during round two, reaching halftime in a share of eight place on 8-under 136.

The San Diego State alum split nine (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation. From there, he stuck to the script, circling birdies on three of the four par 5s. It's been a balanced attack for Piercy this week who enters the weekend ranked T33 in the field for driving accuracy, T31 in GIR, and 25th in putts per GIR. The Las Vegas resident finished T7 in his CIMB debut last year and through two rounds he's on pace for another top 10 this week.
Oct 21 - 7:58 AM

First- and second-round leader Scott Piercy back-pedaled with a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in today's final round of the Safeway Open to conclude his fourth appearance on 16-under 272, down one place into a four-way T3, two in arrears to champion Brendan Steele.

The 37-year-old began the final round in a two-way T2 on 14-under, one adrift of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Patton Kizzire. Playing out of the final threesome, he got off to a horrific start, making the turn in birdie-less 2-over with squares on 7 and 9 on failed scrambles. The Las Vegas native and resident awoke to card five birdies on his inward half, including three straight on holes 10-12, muted slightly by a third bogey at the par-4 13th, using the flat stick three times though statistically not a 3-putt (same as hole 9). Two of his back-nine birdies traveled greater than 26 feet, adding a walk-off birdie-4 at the 18th from 12'11". This was his first top-10 finish on TOUR since consecutive runner-up finishes last season at the U.S. Open and WGC-Bridgestone. After opening with a course-record 62, Piercy chased with rounds of 67-73-70.
Oct 16 - 10:38 PM

First- and second-round leader Scott Piercy backed up with a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the two-day third round of the Safeway Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 14-under 202, down one spot into a two-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire.

The 37-year-old began the third frame (Saturday) with a three-shot lead over Johnson Wagner and Paul Casey. Playing out of the final threesome, he was 1-over thru 15 holes, outpacing birdie-3 at four (from 4'4") with bogeys at six and 14 on failed scrambles when play was nixed due to heavy rain. The San Diego State alum returned on Sunday morning (with 15 others) to par his final three holes, including a par-saver from 10'9" at the par-5 18th. He circled his lone birdie on 12 greens in regulation for a dismal 1.917 putts per GIR and -1.328 in SG: Putting. Piercy was negative across the board in all strokes gained categories in R3 but is still No. 1 in SG: Tee-to-Green (cumulative 8.817), despite a -0.629 in the third round.
Oct 16 - 11:54 AM

Overnight (overnight) leader Scott Piercy fashioned a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day second round of the Safeway Open to reach 15-under 129, good for a three-shot lead over Johnson Wagner and Paul Casey at the midpoint.

The 37-year-old led by two over Casey and second-year man Patton Kizzire with a course-record 62 on day 1 (12 birdies, 2 bogeys). He hardly skipped a beat in the second frame, despite Friday's weather delay of 2 hours and 36 minutes. Prior to the eventual stoppage due to darkness, the San Diego State alum got 12 holes completed, circling birdies on Nos. 5 and 10, adding a 42-yard hole-out for eagle on the par-5 ninth. He returned on Saturday to play his final six holes in 1-under, kicking in a gimme at the par-4 17th from 10 inches after stiffing his approach from 123 yards. Piercy peppered 17 greens in regulation, contributing to 4.700 SG: Tee-to-Green, though a -0.570 in SG: Putting, understandably down from a sizzling 4.269 SGP in round 1.
Oct 15 - 12:57 PM

Scott Piercy circled birdies in bunches on his way toward a 10-under-par 32-30=62 during the opening round of the Safeway Open, setting the course record and staking his claim of the clubhouse lead.

Piercy opened his day at the par-4 10th and found six birdies before making the turn. That included a measly par at the par-5 16th. The story of the day was a hot flat stick, rolling in seven putts from outside 10 feet in addition to a 22'11" hole out birdie from off the green at the par-4 13th. The San Diego State product walked off the course gaining 4.419 strokes putting. This goes in the books as the new course record at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course, previously 63 recorded by Brendan Steele and Andrew Loupe in last year's edition. This is also Piercy's lowest round since a first-round 62 last November at the CIMB Classic. In his last Napa appearance he signed rounds of 74-73 to miss the cut.
Oct 13 - 3:48 PM

Overnight co-leader Scott Piercy pieced together an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish off his third appearance on 5-under 275, down one place to solo second, one in arrears to champion Dustin Johnson.

The 37-year-old finished (co-) runner-up to Johnson in his last start at the U.S. Open and once again finds himself playing second fiddle. He co-led with World No. 1 Jason Day on 5-under after opening in 69-69-70, three clear of Johnson who was T5 on 2-under and shot 66. The Las Vegas native and resident mustered a week-low five (of 14) fairways and a tied-week-low 10 greens in regulation, posting negative numbers in each strokes gained category with the exception of a 1.379 in SG: Putting. He cancelled out birdies at Nos. 8, 10, 14 and 18 with bogeys on holes 9, 12, 13 and 15. Piercy settles for a personal best at Firestone, supplanting T19 on debut in 2012, his second runner-up in his 209th career start, and tied his best finish in a WGC event, joining a T2 at the 2012 HSBC.
Jul 3 - 6:24 PM

Scott Piercy smoothed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach 5-under 205, up two spots and tying overnight leader Jason Day for the 54-hole lead.

The 37-year-old will be going for his fourth PGA TOUR title on Sunday in his 209th career start, first since the 2015 Barbasol Championship. He began Moving Day in a three-way T3 on 2-under, two swings back of 36-hole leader Jason Day. The San Diego State alum found eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, gaining 4.373 SG: Tee-to-Green with 2.893 of that coming from around-the-green. The latter suffered slightly with his lone bogey at the par-4 18th on a failed sand save, but otherwise went 5-for-6 in scrambles, highlighted by a 35'4" par-saver from the fringe on the 14th using the flat stick. Piercy circled the 11th and 17th, both from inside of five feet, with his most memorable par breaker a hole-out eagle-3 at the second from a greenside bunker.
Jul 2 - 5:50 PM

Scott Piercy battled to a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to post 2-under 138, up six places on the live leaderboard to T3, one shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader David Lingmerth.

The 37-year-old improved to nine (of 14) fairways but digressed to 10 greens in regulation and -1.030 in SG: Around-the-Green, currently 46th in the latter (of 58 players). He's stayed strong however, in SG: Approach-to-the-Green and SG: Tee-to-Green, with cumulative totals of 4.359 and 5.775, respectively, No.2-ranked in both of those categories at the time he signed his card. The Las Vegas native and resident outpaced bogeys at Nos. 6, 9 and 12 on failed scrambles with birdies at 2, 5, 11 and 17, highlighted by a 37'9" bomb at the par-4 11th.
Jul 1 - 5:55 PM

Scott Piercy pieced together a 1-under-par 36-33=69 during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Piercy arrived off a T2 at the U.S. Open, and kept his foot on the gas today. He landed 13 greens in regulation, which was necessary considering his putter was dormant for most of the round. The exception was a 19'3" birdie splash at the par-3 fifth hole. Other than that, his longest converted putt was from 6'1" and he also missed a 4'7" par-saving attempt at the par-4 fourth. Piercy's tee-to-green game is dialed in at the moment and gamers should continue to ride the hot clubs while it last.
