SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Scott Piercy, so dejected with his practice form on the eve of the U.S. Open that he quit after four holes, was a new man on Thursday in the first round.

Taming brutal conditions on a windswept morning at Shinnecock Hills, he recorded only two bogeys to earn a share of the clubhouse lead with Englishman Ian Poulter.

Out in the first group of the day, a strong westerly that whipped across the treeless layout proved no problem for the 39-year-old from Las Vegas, a far cry from what transpired 24 hours beforehand.
