Rd. 1: Piercy def. Lawrie, 4 & 3

MARANA, Ariz. -- Scott Piercy, making his first appearance in the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, beat veteran Paul Lawrie of Scotland, 4 and 3, in the first round.

Piercy won the first two holes -- making eagle at the par-5 second -- and never trailed. He went 3 up at the turn with a birdie at the ninth, then produced three birdies in a four-hole stretch to end the match.

Piercy, a No. 8 seed, now plays Luke Donald in the second round of the Snead bracket.
