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. Apr 8 - 3:36 PM

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.

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.
Mar 5 - 4:26 PM

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.
Feb 3 - 8:46 AM

Scott Piercy rallied to a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap his eighth appearance on 12-under 268, up 23 places on the live leaderboard to T8.

Last year's runner-up at Waialae CC sat T7 after 36 holes this week, three back, but a third-round 1-over 71 derailed his chances. He responded with a six-birdie against two-bogey effort in the finale. The 37-year-old exchanged two bogeys with two birdies on his first half to turn even, but played his inward nine in bogey-free 4-under circling birdies at Nos. 10, 12, 14 and 15. He had a chance for one more birdie from 6'8" at the par-5 last, but missed. After a T24 of 32 players last week on Maui, Piercy is not in the published field next week at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, CA.
Jan 17 - 7:53 PM

Scott Piercy tacked on a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to put 9-under 131 on the board, up five places on the live leaderboard to solo fourth.

Last year's Sony runner-up arrived on Oahu off a disappointing T24 at last week's 32-man Hyundai TOC on Maui. Thru two days in Honolulu, he's fairing significantly better, just three adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker. The 37-year-old opened with birdie from 12'1" at the par-4 10th, and added two four-footers at 12 and 16, but dropped one with a failed sand save at the par-3 17th. In-between, he missed a scoring chance from 6'2" at the par-4 14th. He played his inward nine in bogey-free 2-under dropping a pair of eight-footers at the par-4 third and eighth, respectively. On a sour note, he failed to birdie either of the two par 5s. Thru 36 holes, he's currently third in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but a shaky 84th in strokes gained: putting.
Jan 15 - 6:20 PM

Scott Piercy is near the top of the leaderboard after one round at the Sony Open thanks to a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's opener.

The bomber averaged 318.8 yards off the tee in round one, including a long drive of 364 (T7 in the field). Overall, Piercy gained 5.050 strokes:tee-to-green, but gave back 1.220 strokes with the flat stick. Wailalae Country Club allows easy access to someone with this much length. Piercy should remain in contention if his putter can get rolling.
Jan 14 - 10:38 PM

Scott Piercy returns to Honolulu for his eighth appearance at the Sony Open in Hawaii where he owns a 4-for-7 record with all four cashes top-25 finishes.

Piercy never answered the bell last week on Maui posting a T24 in the 32-man field (21 shots back of the winner). He was DFL in proximity to hole at 47'10" -- Zach Johnson ranked first at 29'5" -- and found just 54 greens in regulation to rank second-to-last in that category. For the week, he totaled 20 birdies, seven bogeys, and two doubles. On the plus side, the 37-year-old returns to Waialae CC where he finished runner-up last year (67-67-66-66), nine in arrears to champion Jimmy Walker. His career scoring average in 22 rounds on the par-70 layout is 68.64.
Jan 13 - 7:19 AM

Scott Piercy contests his third Hyundai Tournament of Champions after finishing T13 in 2013 and T12 in 2012.

Piercy won the opposite-field Barbasol Championship in mid-July closing with a pair of 6-under 65s. It was his third PGA TOUR title in his 185th career start and first since the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. The 37-year-old opened 2015-16 with a T25 at the Shriners, T7 at the no-cut CIMB, T35 at the no-cut WGC-HSBC, and 20th at the 30-man no-cut Nedbank Golf Challenge on the European Tour after rounds of 73-68-72-74. His scoring average in seven career rounds at The Plantation Course (par 73) is 70.86.
Jan 4 - 8:58 AM

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.
