Scott Piercy closed in 30 to set a course record at Hamilton G&CC.
Scott Piercy etched his name into the record books Thursday, shooting a course record-tying 62 at Hamilton G&CC to take the lead by one at the RBC Canadian Open. Piercy matched the number posted by Warren Sye in the third round of the 1991 Ontario Amateur. “In all honesty I didn't feel like I had a very good feel for the golf course teeing up on the first hole today,” Piercy said. “I flew in late on Tuesday, played the pro-am so I'm kind of jet lagged playing, and kind of scraped through yesterday.” You wouldn’t have guessed it Thursday. Piercy made five birdies, two eagles and just one bogey in the opening round, closing in 30. He hit just 10 fairways and 12 greens in regulation but got up-and-down all day with just 24 total putts. The 62 is one shy of his personal best on the PGA TOUR, a 61 in the third round of the 2011 Reno-Tahoe Open. On the day, Piercy was 13 of 14 on putts inside 10 feet. That included making a 9 1/2-footer on his final hole of the day, the par-4 ninth.
