Piercy wins Barbasol Championship for 3rd PGA Tour title

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) Scott Piercy won the Barbasol Championship on Sunday for his third PGA Tour title, closing with a 6-under 65 for a three-stroke victory.

The 36-year-old Las Vegas player made a 57-foot birdie putt on the second hole en route to his first victory since the 2012 Canadian Open. Tied for the third-round lead with Ricky Barnes, Piercy birdied three of four holes starting on No. 13 and finished at 19 under on Grand National's Lake Course.

Piercy began the season on a major medical extension after surgery on his right arm last year.

Birmingham native Will Wilcox was second after a 67.

Barnes, University of Alabama junior Robby Shelton and South Korea's Whee Kim tied for third at 14 under.

The round was delayed 1 hour, 20 minutes because of rain and lightning.
