2022-23 Season Highlights


Finished No. 6 on the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour Points List, earning his first PGA TOUR card (top 30 from Points List) in his second season (and first full season) on the Korn Ferry Tour. One of five two-time winners on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2023, with victories at The Panama Championship in February, and Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper in July. Totaled four top-10s and 13 made cuts in 22 starts. Pierceson and his fraternal twin brother, Parker, who also finished in the top 30 on the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour Points List to earn PGA TOUR membership, became the second set of twins in history to simultaneously hold TOUR membership (Allan and Curtis Strange/1981). Pierceson also made seven PGA TOUR starts; he logged three made cuts and a season-high finish of T14 at the 2023 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.

Korn Ferry Tour
The Panama Championship - Earned his second career Korn Ferry Tour win in what was just his 14th career start on Tour, defeating Sam Saunders and Mac Meissner with a birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff (472-yard par-4 18th) to win The Panama Championship at Panama Golf Club in Panama City. Entered the final round five strokes off the lead, but carded a final-round 4-under 66 and reached 3-under 277 for the tournament, which tied the fourth-highest winning score relative to par in Korn Ferry Tour history; he also became just the seventh player in Korn Ferry Tour history to win an event with a 72-hole score relative to par of 3-under or higher, and the first since Kyle Thompson won the 2017 The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay at 2-under 286. Coupled with his win at the 2022 Live and Work in Maine Open, became the fourth player since 2019 who earned two wins prior to their 20th start on the Korn Ferry Tour (Kris Ventura/2019, Scottie Scheffler/2019, Cameron Young/2020-21). Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper - Notched his third career Korn Ferry Tour win with a two-stroke victory at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, Missouri. The quartet of runners-up included Pierceson's fraternal twin brother, Parker. Totaled 25-under 263 for the tournament.

Personal


  • Both Pierceson and his twin brother, Parker (who is 37 minutes older than Pierceson), are third-generation professional golfers, as their father, Kyle, played collegiately at University of Texas (1983-87) and made over 20 Korn Ferry Tour starts from 1990-96, and grandfather, Charles, played on the PGA TOUR from the 1960s through the mid-1980s, winning three times on TOUR, including the 1971 Masters Tournament.
  • Father, Kyle, also played the Asian Tour and Canadian Tour and Korn Ferry Tour. Grandfather, Charles, played on PGA TOUR Champions following his PGA TOUR career.
  • While at Plano (Texas) West High School, won a team state title in 2016; he and his twin brother, Parker, followed in the footsteps of their father, Kyle, with the team state title, as Kyle and four-time PGA TOUR winner Bob Estes led Abilene Cooper High School to back-to-back 5A team state titles in 1982 and 1983 (Estes won the individual title and Kyle finished second in 1983).
  • In his grandfather Charles Coody's final appearance at the Masters in 2006, Pierceson and his twin brother Parker (both age 6 at the time) caddied for Charles in the par 3 contest. The twins putted on alternate holes, with Pierceson making a 40-footer on No. 9.
