GolfWRX is pleased to announce that two-time PGA Tour winner Scott Piercy will be joining us for a LIVE Q&A with members on March 25 at 5 p.m. ET.

 

Unfortunately, Scott is out currently action for a few months due to elbow surgery. He suffered a torn flexor digitorum superficialis in his right arm, but he’s agreed to take some time to give insight into PGA Tour life for GolfWRX members.

Want to know what it’s like to win on the PGA Tour? What it’s like to play in The Masters? How does Scott play with a baseball grip? How about PGA Tour life in general? Ask Scott here.

 

ABOUT

Piercy, 35, turned professional in 2001 and earned his PGA Tour card in 2009. In 2011, Piercy broke through for his first PGA Tour win at the Reno-Tahoe Open. He won again in 2012, this time at the RBC Canadian Open. The win propelled him to his best year ever on Tour, earning nearly $2.7 million and finishing 15th on the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup.

 

In 2013, Piercy recorded his best-ever finish in a major championship, a T5 at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, and also played in The Masters for the first time, where he finished T54.

 

Piercy’s sponsors currently include Titleist, Izod, KeyedIn, Apex Systems and Wahwah. Click here to see the clubs in his bag as of the 2014 Humana Challenge

Thank you for taking the time to visit GolfWRX and answer questions. I really enjoyed the last conversation we had with Kevin Streelman.

How long does it take for you to scout a new track? What are the steps to preparing for a new course/tournament? What advice would you give amateurs preparing and playing in tournaments?

What course has the toughest greens on Tour? What course is toughest off the tee?

Do you like to test a lot of equipment, or do you find something and stick with? What is the testing like to fit something in your bag?

Scott, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, hope the healing process goes quickly for you. How often do you spend time working on fundamentals like your grip, posture, alignment, ball position, etc. and do you have a tips for the rest of us? What are some things (or nothing) that you tend to struggle with or lapse into bad habits?

What does your pre-round warm up consist of ? Do you do any putting/chipping drills before you go out or just focus on warming up and getting a feel?

Hi Scott, and welcome to WRX!

What advice would you give to the "Average Joe" who wants to find a way to save strokes in their game? Where would you tell them to focus their time in practice?

Also, do you ever just stop at a course and play a round with strangers in a random grouping just because you felt like getting in a round? If so, when will you next be in Austin? :-)

Thank you! It is awesome to see a Professional take time out of his schedule to interact with Forum Members!

It's a polarizing topic around here.... And maybe you won't want to touch it...

How much impact do you feel your Caddie ( Caddy ) has on your game?

Lots of great questions in here! I am anxious to hear answers to them, but also would like you to comment on putting practice, and some good drills you do that we could try ourselves. Thanks Scott!

Scott get well man.

Question: I also play with the baseball grip. Actually a modified 10 finger grip. I dont overlap or cross the two fingers. Are we missing out with this grip as fir as control and distance? if not why dont more use it? What are the drawbacks of going with a 10 finger grip?

Hey, Scott, thanks for stopping in to chat with us equipment dorks! I have a question or two... First, the ten finger baseball grip- how many times has someone tried to switch it, and how did that go? How many Burner fairways do you have stashed, do you have a source, or are you riding the same ones till they die? Best of luck in the future, and speedy recovery from the injury!

Thanks for doing this!

How important is testing new equipment, and at what point do you decide to put new equipment into competitive play?

Pro's perspective when fan's yell random outbursts?

What is the reaction of a pro to statements made by others. (Obviously the Patrick Reed comment about "top 5" was a big media frenzy)

What is your favorite course you've played?

How has rehabbing an injury effected your routine, and what has it changed about your game.


again, thanks!

Doh! Meant to say enter the GolfWRX draw. Doubt I'd be able to do the duel.

Big thanks to Scott for doing this. Such a cool gesture!

What has been the biggest challenge/surprise since you turned pro? Is there anything that you really didn't anticipate?

How much interaction do you have with other tour players off the course?

What is the process of testing new equipment, whether it be with Titleist or another OEM? Can you pretty much get your hands on anything you want? Do you borrow it and return it to the tour van or rep after a certain amount of time?

Thanks again!

I mean, I like golf balls
but not that much.

What advice would you give to a 19 year old that wants to play professionally that know thinks he can?

Also, I saw you at the BMW in Chicago this past season, but didn't try talk to you cause I blanked on your named :(

Good luck with coming back from the injury hope you play well.

To piggy back on this question, what is your practice schedule during the day and honestly how much work do you have to put in? I understand a ton and there are no days off but is chasing the dream (in your opinion) far fetched?
