Scott Piercy weaved a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.
After just two rehab starts on the Web.com Tour following four months of being sidelined for surgery on his right elbow, you'd have forgiven Piercy if he missed the cut at Royal Montreal today. Instead, he's 3-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a share of 28th place seven strokes off the 36-hole lead. Now, he did stumble on Thursday, hitting only seven greens in regulation and erasing one birdie with three bogeys, but he went 5-for-5 in scrambling today and picked off five birdies. The set featured a five-yarder from the rough at the par-4 second and conventional conversions from 23'2" and 14'9" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. He also nearly aced the par-3 fifth where ShotTracker lists his birdie putt at one inch. Piercy isn't yet exempt for 2014-15 and he's sure to receive a medical extension, but he may not need it if he can keep this rally rolling on the weekend in Canada.
