Scott Piercy

Lake Forest, Illinois

Q. Talk about your accomplishment if you could.
SCOTT PIERCY: Yeah, I won today getting to the TOUR Championship. I mean, Jason is going to be tough to beat. The putter let me down a little bit on the front nine and really had to be patient today. You know, I hung in there, and I got my barrage of birdies at the end, which made for a good spot.

Q. How do you feel your game is going into East Lake next week?
SCOTT PIERCY: Pretty good. Yeah, you know, I was really happy with my game today. I felt like my swing was in a good spot. I felt like I had all my gears, the full game. The putter -- just a couple five-footers on the front nine just really let me down. The back nine I kind of settled down with the putter and struck it a little better, and coming down the stretch I made some nice putts.

Q. And now you get to play all four majors next year. You've got to feel pretty good there.
SCOTT PIERCY: Yeah, when I started the Playoffs I was inside the number and I didn't play well the first couple weeks, so to play really well here to get in means a lot.

Q. When did you know or kind of realize that, all right, I'm kind of safely in?
SCOTT PIERCY: 18 when I made the putt. I mean, I knew that 15 when I made the birdie putt there that my chances were good. 16 is a good hole, but I hit a great drive and I hit a good second shot and I had a putt that broke about two feet there. I was thinking I was going to make a par and then hopefully birdie 18 to be in for sure. But that was a great putt I made on 16. And then obviously a nice two-putt on 17. 18, I could have got there in two, but I didn't like the downhill left to right lie with a 3-wood, and I told my caddie, I said, the last four or five holes I've stuffed it with wedges, so let's lay it up and stuff a wedge in there, and luckily enough I hit it to about ten feet and made it.

Q. The fact that you struggled the first two events, was that frustrating or was that motivation?
SCOTT PIERCY: Yeah, it's frustrating to not play well. It's never any fun. My game has felt like it's in a good spot, I just had to manage it well, be patient, and I did those two things really well this week.

Q. (Question on Jason Day's play today.)
SCOTT PIERCY: You know, it wasn't playing easy. He played really solid. He hit some really good putts that didn't go in. He got up-and-down when he needed to. With a five-, six-, seven-stroke lead, he did exactly what he needed to do. I couldn't put pressure on him because I got so far behind on the front, and I don't know what everybody else was doing, but finishing where I finished, obviously they didn't come after him too much, either. He played exactly how he needed to play, safe, conservative, pars, grab a birdie here and there, and he's the No. 1 player in the world now. That's frigging awesome. He's played awesome. You know, everybody felt like they were playing for second, so I feel happy where I finished.
