Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Piercy (Pro V1x) captured the Barbasol Championship on Sunday for his third career PGA TOUR title, closing with a 6-under-par 65 to post a 19-under-par 265 victory total.
"I just knew it was a matter of time coming back and it's been a long road,” said Piercy after the win, referring to elbow surgery he underwent early last year.
“My whole goal after coming back from surgery was to come back better… I struck the ball beautifully all week and made enough putts to get it done.”
Three players tied for third place at the Grand National Course on the Robert Trent Jones Trail, including Pro V1x loyalist Whee Kim.
STATISTICALLY SPEAKING: Piercy hit 17 of 18 (94%) greens in regulation on Sunday and finished tied for first on the week by hitting 63 of 72 (87.5%) over the four rounds.
