Scott Piercy now has some company at the top of the leaderboard on a sun-kissed day when players are once again going low.
Piercy hit his approach well right at the 11th hole and was unable to save par. So now he’s tied with Richard S. Johnson, Boo Weekley, Briny Baird and Eric Compton at 7 under.
Weekley, who just two-putted from 21 feet at the par-5 17th, and Baird both started on the back nine. Baird has played six holes and made birdie on four of them.
Johnson got to 7 under with a 10-footer at the ninth hole, his third birdie of the day. Compton, on the other hand, won’t tee off until 2:30 p.m. – Helen Ross
