RENO, Nev. — Scott Piercy squandered a three-stroke lead, then dodged more trouble down the stretch before making a 7-foot par putt on the final hole Sunday to win the Reno-Tahoe Open by one stroke.
Piercy shot a 2-under 70 to finish at 15-under 273, beating Pat Perez by one stroke.

CHAMPIONS
BLAINE, Minn. — Jay Haas birdied the final hole Sunday to win the 3M Championship by one shot over Tom Lehman, Kenny Perry and Peter Senior.
Haas put his second shot on the par-5 No. 18 about 25 feet from the hole and two-putted for his first Champions Tour victory in two years. Lehman just missed his eagle putt playing in the group of front of Haas.
Haas started the day one shot behind Senior and John Huston and finished with a 15-under 201.
NATIONWIDE
OMAHA, Neb. — J.J. Killeen shot a 3-under 69 to win for the second straight week on the Nationwide Tour, two-putting from 90 feet on the final hole to avoid a five-way playoff at the Cox Classic on Sunday.
The former TCU star sank a 5-footer at the last to finish at 22-under 262, edging Jonas Blixt (64), Ken Duke (66), Gary Christian (65) and former U.S. Amateur champion Danny Lee (66) at Champions Run.
Lee was in the final group with Killeen and holed a 15-foot birdie to tie the clubhouse leaders and put pressure on Killeen.
Killeen earned $130,500 for the win and is now second on the money list coming off his victory at the Utah Championship last week. The top 25 on the money list earn PGA Tour cards for next year.
