Scott Piercy (born November 6, 1978) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour.

Born in Las Vegas, Nevada,[1] Piercy turned professional in 2001. He played on various mini-tours before becoming a Nationwide Tour member in 2008. After a poor start to the season he won two tournaments in August, and finished ninth on the money list to earn PGA Tour playing rights for 2009.

Piercy made an encouraging start to his PGA Tour career, recording five top-twenty finishes in his first six starts, and this run of form elevated Piercy into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings in March 2009. He finished the season ranked 90th on the money list to retain his tour card. In 2010, Piercy slipped and finished 136th, as a result losing some of his status for 2011.

In 2011, Piercy won his first PGA Tour event at the Reno-Tahoe Open. He won his second PGA Tour title in 2012 at the RBC Canadian Open by one stroke over Robert Garrigus and William McGirt. As a result, he earned a place in the following week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and was therefore unable to defend his Reno-Tahoe Open title. The RBC Canadian Open win also allowed Piercy entry into 2013 Masters Tournament, his first.

Piercy is rarity on the PGA Tour for his use of the "ten finger" or baseball grip.
