Scott Piercy Holds On To Win Canadian Open
Scott Piercy won the Canadian Open with a final round 67 to edge fellow FJ Ambassador Robert Garrigus by one. Piercy began the week with an eight under par 62 to take the early clubhouse lead; but with much work still left to do, he added a pair of 67's over the next two days to remain in contention.
Now on the final day, two strokes behind 54 hole leader Garrigus, Piercy (FJ ICON and StaSof) rattled off four birdies through the first five holes to leap into contention. Piercy cooled towards the middle of his round before adding a chip in birdie at the 15 hole to reach 17 under par. Parring in, Piercy had to wait and watch his competitors try to match his 17 under total.
No player could catch the total, making Piercy the 2012 RBC Canadian Open Champion. This is Piercy's second career win and the victory moves him to 13th on the FedEx Cup leaderboard.Link to this entry
