Scott Piercy Brings a Conservative Approach to Finish

Scott Piercy Brings a Conservative Approach to Finish

Scott Piercy, from the United States, won the recently concluded Canadian Open, which was held at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. He defeated his fellow Americans William McGirt and Robert Garrigus.

Piercy’s approach to the game was indeed conservative as he started two behind Garrigus. Four consecutive birdies from the second to the fifth holes moved him closer to contention.

Two bogeys on the 8th and 14th holes put McGirt at the top, tying with Piercy who birdied on the 15th. A greenside bunker gave McGirt a hard time, opening things up for Garrigus on his way to the final hole. It was a close but short approach for Garrigus, who needed a birdie but came up a few inches short, putting in from a distance of 14 feet. Piercy closed the game with a 3-under 67 score.

The win opened the door for Piercy to qualify in the Bridgestone Invitational, which will be his debut in a World Golf Championship event. “I am so excited. Reno last year was definitely a platform for me to showcase how good I could really be and if that’s any sign to how this year has been. I’ve got some big things coming up. You just have to believe in yourself. Half the battle is being confident in yourself. Just knowing you can get there. If you keep working hard, good things will come,” said the 33-year-old Piercy.
