Scott Piercy rallied late in round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge to card a 7-under-par 34-31=65, entering the weekend on 11-under 133, right on the cusp of the top 10.
Playing at the Nicklaus Tournament Course, the San Diego State product started his day with par-bogey-par but flipped a switch from there. A trio of birdies got him back to 2-under for the day as he made the turn. Piercy gave one back at the 10th with a three-putt bogey. He responded with style, circling birdies on six of his closing eight holes, including a three-hole birdie train that kicked off at the par-4 14th. Arriving fresh off a top 25 at the Sony Open where he ranked 3rd in strokes gained tee-to-green, Piercy is not showing any signs of slowing down. Jan 19 - 6:23 PM

Scott Piercy pushes play on the 2018 schedule as he preps for this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Piercy is a regular visitor to Hawaii, making his 10th appearance at this event. A runner-up finish in 2015 is the clear highlight on his Sony Open resume, but he also boasts three other top 15s. Based on his social media feed, he's been relaxing on the islands for over a week now, so jetlag shouldn't be a concern. Piercy is entering 2018 off a season where he finished 14-for-22 (98th in the FedExCup standings). To open the new campaign he has picked up three paychecks in three starts, including a T17 at the Safeway Open. That top 20 was a good sign for gamers and fans since Piercy had to shut it down prematurely last season due to injury. With a clean bill of health, the Las Vegas resident should be squarely back on everyone's radar.

World No. 85 Scott Piercy is in the published field at this week's Safeway Open. UPDATE: Piercy finished T17 on 7-under 281 (70-69-72-70).

The SDSU alum was the 18- and 36-hole leader last year (62-67) but ended up two swings shy with weekend rounds of 73-70 for T3, his best and lone top-40 finish in four tries. If he actually tees it up this week in Napa, it will be his first action in 15 weeks, last seen posting an 85/MDF at the Travelers back in June. The Las Vegas native and resident preceded that with three straight MCs (in as many weeks) and a T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA, which was his first top-10 finish since T4 at the OHL Classic last November. He's battled a variety of injuries in his career but there has been no indication as to the reason for his prolonged absence. Piercy finished 98th in the final FedExCup standings last season with six top 25s among 14 cashes in 22 starts. He totaled four top 10s with above-mentioned T3 at the Safeway his season best.

Scott Piercy continues his run of pre-tournament withdraws, taking a pass on THE NORTHERN TRUST this week. UPDATE: Piercy updated his social media channels with the caption, "Hi-Ya", announcing his return to action. Gamers should expect him to ease back into form this fall, making him a risky investment until he proves to be in full health.

Piercy started this WD train back at The Open, with his last start coming at the end of June (Travelers Championship, solo 85th). There is no word on what is causing this prolonged absence. In the past, Piercy has dealt with wrist issues, back issues, and forearm issues. At 85th in the FedExCup standings, next week is his last event to make a move, or else his season is over. At the same time, if he did manage to return next week then you would expect plenty of rust from the long layoff. Gamers should consider this season over for Piercy and also show caution when he does finally return to action.

Scott Piercy has withdrawn from the RBC Canadian Open just before his opening tee time, giving Tom Hoge a crack at Glen Abbey Golf Club, in his place.

Piercy withdrew from The 146th Open, but did not cite any injury or illness. There was the chance he just wanted to spend some time with the family instead of traveling overseas. This pre-tournament WD just one week later probably confirms there is an injury or illness, although it hasn't been cited at the time. Piercy is a past champion at this event (2012) but his victory came at a different host course (Hamilton G&CC). Piercy finished T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in late May but has since gone MC-MC-MC-85.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 60 Scott Piercy carved out a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to wrap on 6-under 274, up one place into a three-way T7, four back of champion Kevin Kisner.

After opening in 68-66-72, the 38-year-old began T8 on 4-under, five shy of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson. Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, gaining 3.154 strokes tee-to-green but losing 1.518 strokes on-the-green. The SDSU alum squared bogeys at six and 16, both 3-jacks from 19'6" and 37'1", respectively, outpaced by four birdie-3s at 2, 10, 12 and 15, three from inside of six feet with a long of 16'7" a the par-4 10th. This was his sixth appearance and first top 25 (and first top 10), supplanting a previous-best T26 in 2013. It's Piercy's sixth top 25 of the season in 18 events and fourth top 10. He drops to 1-for-3 when leading/co-leading thru 36 holes.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 60 Scott Piercy stalled out to a 2-over-par 33-39=72 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, falling seven spots into a five-way T8 on 4-under 206, five back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson.

After opening in 68-66, the 38-year-old co-led with three others on 6-under. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he went out in 2-under but came home in birdie-less 4-over. The SDSU alum, a bit under the weather, conjured seven (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, losing 1.460 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.130 tee-to-green. He circled 3s on holes 2 and 6, the former a pitch-in from 26'9" away and the latter conventionally from 32'10", but that would be it. The Las Vegas native and resident doubled the par-3 13th (tee ball in the water) and dropped shots at 14 and 18 on failed sand saves. He registered 1.889 putts per GIR and -0.873 SG: Putting.

Scott Piercy pushed his way up the leaderboard in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, styling a 4-under-par 33-33=66, reaching the weekend in a share of the clubhouse lead on 6-under 134.

Fighting through an illness, Piercy pieced together six birdies to camouflage a pair of bogeys. His irons and wedges were dialed in today as he set up seven birdie looks from inside 11 feet and converted on six of them, with none of his circles coming from long distance. The old adage states, "fear the injured golfer," and that certainly applied to Piercy today as he was cleary not 100% as he navigated Colonial Country Club. His lethargic body language perhaps helped him slow down mentally which helped on the greens as he gained 2.344 strokes putting over the field. Entering the week, he'd lost 10.2 strokes putting over his last 3 starts but currently ranks 9th in the field putting this week.

World No. 60 Scott Piercy crafted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 7-under 203, up eight places to T9, five in arrears of 54-hole leader James Hahn.

This is the 38-year-old's seventh appearance with mixed results on his previous six. He owns two top 15s, including a T5 in 2013 (66-68-66-72), but WD after a first-round 72 in 2015 and missed cuts on debut in 2009 and again last year after 65-75. The Las Vegas native and resident checked in off four consecutive stroke-play missed cuts, lowlighted by a 20-over 80-84 at last week's PLAYERS, MCing by 18 and DFL of 145 golfers. All is forgotten, as he opened this week in 68-69, T17 at halftime, and climbed inside the top 10 with eight birdies outpacing two bogeys and double bogey-6 at six (3-putt from 9'6"). It was a mixed bag with the flat stick (-0.301 in SG: Putting), missing two scoring tries from inside of eight feet but walked off with his long of 14'5" for birdie-3 at 18. Piercy was No. 1 in R3 in proximity at 19'5" and is No. 1 thru 54 holes in SG: Approach-the-Green (9.326), including 4.164 in R3.

World No. 57 Scott Piercy is at TPC Sawgrass for his seventh appearance in THE PLAYERS Championship and checks in at 60th in the FedExCup standings.

The SDSU alum ended calendar-year 2016 as the No. 36-ranked player in the world so he's heading the wrong direction. He began the fall portion of the wraparound schedule with four top 25s in five events, three of those top 10s and two of those top 5s, but hasn't cracked the top 30 in hist last 10 starts. Since the return from the 6-week break for the holidays, the 38-year-old has missed four cuts with a best of T32 at the no-cut WGC-Mexico. He's 2-for-6 at THE PLAYERS, kicking off with T22 on debut in 2009 and adding T23 last year (70-68-75-71), sandwiching four missed cuts. The Las Vegas native and resident's scoring average in 16 laps over the par-72 layout is 72.63.

World No. 50 Scott Piercy contests his third Masters Tournament and is paired the first two rounds with 2003 champ Mike Weir and first-timer Billy Hurley III.

This is the 38-year-old's third appearance after T29 last year (70-72-79-74) and T54 in 2013. He's a cumulative 16-over-par in the eight rounds with a 74.00 scoring average. The Las Vegas native and resident qualified three ways, twice for being in the Top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings, and the final way from a T2 at last year's U.S. Open at Oakmont CC (PA). Overall, this is his 16th major appearance with seven prior missed cuts and two top 10s, with a T5 at the 2013 PGA Championship joining last year's co-runner-up at Oakmont. Piercy arrives at 40th in the FedExCup standings and off a Group-Stage exit at Match Play (0-3-0). He's 11-for-13 on the season with four top 25s, three of those top 10s, and a best of T3 at the season-opener in Napa.

Scott Piercy readies for his second look at Austin Country Club ahead of this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Starting his week in Group 13, Scott Piercy will take on Bubba Watson, Thomas Pieters, and Jhonattan Vegas in the opening Round Robin stage. In three previous trips to this event, Piercy is 3-2-2, including last year where he went 1-0-2 in group stages. While the San Diego State product does have that course knowledge from last year, his current form is nothing to write home about. Over his last five starts he's missed the cut twice and hasn't finished better than T32 in the process.

World No. 36 Scott Piercy twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 6-under 136, up 44 places on the leaderboard to T10 with play still in progress.

The 38-year-old is making his ninth appearance with a best of solo 3rd in 2013, which included a tied-career-low 61 in the final round. He kicked off with an indifferent even-par 71 (two birdies, two bogeys), but caught fire in a second round that featured six birdies on 15 greens in regulation, highlighted by a near-ace at the raucous par-3 16th, tapping in from seven inches. The Las Vegas native and resident nearly holed out at the par-4 10th as well, sticking his approach from 91 yards to five inches. His long of the day traveled 33'7" for birdie-2 at three.

Scott Piercy sits inside the top 10 on the FedExCup leaderboard ahead of his appointment with Waialae Country Club at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Piercy got off to a quick start in the fall, collecting a three-pack of top 10s in addition to a T24 and a T63. That has him positioned ninth in the FedExCup race. Now he readies for Waialae CC, a course where he's already posted four top 15s in eight trips, including a runner-up finish in 2015. It's been very boom-or-bust here for the Las Vegas resident, missing the cut in three of his eight visits, as well. The three-time PGA TOUR winner is always a threat to contend and this week is no different.

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).
