Scott Piercy submitted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for his final round of the CIMB Classic and landed at 19-under 269, six strokes behind 72-hole clubhouse leader Adam Scott.
Piercy led the tournament with an opening 62, but finished 69-69-69. Replicating his feat on the par-4 14th hole on Saturday where he pulled the string on a wedge for eagle, he jarred his second at the par-4 13th today, albeit from further away. And just as he incurred a double bogey in the third round (at the par-5 18th), he squared another today, this time at 13 to erase the fortune of the eagle-2 on the previous hole. At last check, he ranked T2 with two eagles and T4 with 24 birdies, so that he wasn't a contender qualifies as a letdown. But there's another opportunity to win this week. Piercy is scheduled to compete in the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions where he shared runner-up honors in 2012 and tied for 21st the following year. Nov 1 - 1:38 AM

Scott Piercy survived a 3-under-par 34-35=69 for his third round of the CIMB Classic.

Hey, it's a sub-70, but he double-bogeyed the par-5 18th after blocking his third way right of a pavilion. After failing to find the ball, he took a drop and re-hit from the original spot. Piercy didn't find the putting surface on the punishing finisher until his fifth shot. It offset the fortune of an eagle-2 over water from the fairway at the par-4 14th. Elsewhere, he picked off five birdies against one bogey. So, the first-round leader is 16-under 200, four strokes back of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Overnight leader Scott Piercy settled for a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in today's second round of the CIMB Classic and posted 13-under 131 at the halfway point.

He checked up one shot off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader Brendan Steele, who went out in the day's first threesome off the back side of Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. Just as he did in the lid-lifter, Piercy birdied his first three holes today. He added two more birdies and sat bogey-free 5-under through 10. But the magic disappeared thereafter as he dropped two shots with bogeys on the way in and failed to find another par breaker.

Scott Piercy torched Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club for a bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-31=62 in today's opening round of the CIMB Classic, good for a three-stroke clubhouse lead.

Piercy totaled 13 greens in regulation and circled five birdies on both nines. His aggregate matches the course record last turned in by Anirban Lahiri in the third round of the Maybank Malaysian Open earlier this year. Ryan Moore's opening 63 here in 2013 was officially recognized by the PGA TOUR as the course record, so Piercy's number will replace it. Whatever the case, it's his lowest round anywhere since a closing 61 at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. The soon-to-be 37-year-old (on Nov. 6) placed T25 in his backyard at TPC Summerlin last week.

Scott Piercy travels from an arid to tropical climate in anticipation of this week's CIMB Classic.

The bomber returns to Malaysia for the first time since 2012. The venue has been moved since the last time he was here, so Piercy will have his first look at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. The short, par-72 track will force the San Diego State product to club down on many occasions, losing some of his length advantage on most of the holes. The three-time PGA TOUR winner possesses obvious upside, but there will be better weeks to fully invest in Piercy.

Scott Piercy contests his second TOUR Championship in Atlanta and enters the fray ranked 20th in the FedExCup standings.

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. Also boasts a runner-up at the Sony Open in January and solo third last week at the BMW where he played in the final pairing on Sunday. 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.

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.
Sep 19 - 6:21 PM

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.
Sep 17 - 4:59 PM

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.
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.
Aug 14 - 3:39 PM

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.
