2013 PREVIEW: Scott Piercy continued to improve last year, picking up a second PGA TOUR win -- this one with his first invite to the Masters attached. The Las Vegas native isn't rolling the dice anymore. He belongs, and that tie for second at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions shows Piercy is getting more comfortable in the upper echelon.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Piercy shot a course-record 62 in the first round of the RBC Canadian Open and the trio of 67s that followed were enough to give him the win, his second in as many years on TOUR. Interestingly, that victory brought a change in travel plans as Piercy earned a spot in his first World Golf Championships, just as the previous year's win at the Reno-Tahoe Open enabled him to make his PGA Championship debut the following week. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: A very emotional player, Scott has a lot of self-confidence. He introduced himself to an announcer a couple years ago and said, "You'll be calling a lot of my shots in the future." I would like to see him more emotionally level during a round but seems to turn frustration into motivation. -- Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: If he isn't one of your favorite fantasy investments, then we'll never be friends. Posted 14 top 25s among 19 cuts made in 28 starts in 2012. Picked off his second career win and advanced to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola for the first time. Didn't relent thereafter with a T6 at the Shriners, a T10 at the CIMB Classic (where he closed with a 62) and a T2 at the WGC-HSBC Champions. The birdie machine ranked fifth in final-round scoring average, which speaks to his fearlessness. Invest with confidence and enjoy the ride. -- Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
