Providing a status update on Kenny Perry, he underwent shoulder surgery in November of 2017 and will be out of action until May.
Perry finished 4th in the Schwab Cup standings during the 2017 PGA TOUR Champions season. That was despite playing through a rotator cuff injury all season. After the playoffs he went under the knife to clean up the bone spurs in his shoulder. It wasn't a complete tear which limits the expected recovery to five months. Gamers and fans should expect his return to action to come around May. With last year's U.S. Senior Open title, Perry has gained entry into the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. The 57-year-old hasn't made a PGA TOUR start since the 2015 Memorial Tournament where he missed the cut. Mar 14 - 1:17 PM

Kenny Perry returns to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial after a three-year recess.

The 2003 and 2005 Colonial champion is 19-for-22 overall at this venue. He sports a pair of top 5s this month on the Champions Tour, but he's just 2-for-6 on the PGA TOUR this season. The course history makes him a legitimate punt play in DFS games this week, but expectations should be kept in check.

Kenny Perry is in the published field at the RBC Heritage for a 16th time, but first visit since a WD in 2007.

Perry plays this week on a career earnings exemption. The 54-year-old enters 196th in FedExCup points with zero top 25s in five events and three MCs on the younger circuit. Perry has three starts on his CHAMPIONS TOUR season with three top 25s, the latest a T15 at the Mississippi Gulf Resort two weeks ago.

Kenny Perry continues his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Northern Trust Open.

Perry makes his 16th venture to Riviera Country Club. He's made the cut in 11 of his first 15 attempts, highlighted by a T2 way back in 1995. He's playing this season on a career earnings exemption, so it stands to reason that this could be his last attempt at a win in Pacific Palisades, California.

Kenny Perry tees it up for the 16th time in the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club.

Now a full-time Champions Tour player, Perry played five PGA TOUR events during the 2013-14 season which included a missed cut at the Sony Open. Unlike many of the over-50 crown, Perry still has the length required to be competitive with the younger crowd. He tied for 28th in the 2014 U.S. Open and shared 27th in the PGA Championship. He's never cracked the top 15 in this event, so it's likely he's just knocking off the rust in preparation for the start of the Champions Tour season.

Kenny Perry will pick and choose his schedule carefully on the PGA TOUR during the 2014-15 season.

After announcing his final major at Valhalla Golf Club last season, Perry will now use a career earnings exemption for the 2014-15 season. He spent most of his time on the Champions Tour last year, playing 18 events there versus just five on the PGA TOUR. He collected top 30s in two of his five PGA TOUR starts last year and won twice on the Champions Tour. DFS gamers should keep Perry in mind whenever he chooses to tee it up this year.

Kenny Perry has elected to burn a career earnings exemption on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15.

The 54-year-old had been fully exempt via a multiple-win exemption that dated back to 2008. However, he's played only 26 times on the PGA TOUR since the 2011 season, choosing to devote his attention to the Champions Tour where he's piled up seven victories. Currently 15th all-time in PGA TOUR earnings but without a top 25 since 2010, expect him to use the regular schedule for spot starts to stay fresh for the 50-and-older circuit. Then expect him to burn his second career earnings exemption in 2015-16.

Kenny Perry celebrated his 54th birthday at Valhalla Golf Club with a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the PGA Championship.

The native of Kentucky made the most of his special exemption into the PGA, ending his week at 6-under 278. His finale featured three birdies, all inside of eight feet, and 15 pars. It is highly likely that this will mark the end of his career in the major championships, as he has already made the transition to the Champions Tour on a regular basis.

Kenny Perry is the elder statesman of Kentucky golf and will tee it up at Valhalla Golf Club in this week's PGA Championship.

Perry had two close calls at winning a major championship while a regular on the PGA TOUR, and the 1996 PGA at Valhalla was one of them. He lost in a playoff to Mark Brooks. He received a special exemption into the field this week and is fresh off a win on the Champions Tour last week. While it's a stretch to think he could win, he absolutely has value in deep formats where securing a cut is important.

Kenny Perry will make his first U.S. Open appearance since 2010 when he tees it up at Pinehurst No. 2 this week.

Perry is an impressive 9-for-12 in his U.S. Open career, including a T23 at Pinehurst in 2005. While his length off the tee is impressive for his age, ranking 3rd in driving distance on the Champions Tour, he falls outside of the top 50 in that same category on the PGA TOUR. With the scorecard reading 7,562 yards this week, it may be an uphill battle for Perry.

One of the spoils of Kenny Perry's 2013 Senior PLAYERS win is a spot in the field at THE PLAYERS this week.

Perry is still a fully exempt member of the PGA TOUR, so his berth in the field at TPC Sawgrass fits nicely into his schedule. This will be his 24th edition of this event, and while he has made the cut on 18 occasions, he boasts just two top 10s. While he hasn't made the cut in a PGA TOUR event this season, he does own a pair of top 10s on the Champions Tour.

Kenny Perry will tee it up in The Honda Classic this week.

While Perry spends much of his time on the Champions Tour, he is still fully exempt on the PGA TOUR for the 2013-14 season. His only other action on the PGA TOUR was at the Sony Open, where he failed to make the cut. His trip to PGA National is a bit curious. One would think he would choose starts based on past success at a venue, but his his previous four attempts at PGA National have resulted in three paydays but just one top 20.

Kenny Perry made just three starts on the 2013 PGA TOUR, and his work load is expected to stay primarily on the Champions Tour in 2014.

Perry was a rock on the Champions Tour in 2013, winning three times and adding three additional runner-up finishes to his ledger. His three starts on the PGA TOUR came in the heat of the summer, sharing 33rd at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, missing the cut at the Memorial and tying for 41st at The Greenbrier Classic. There doesn't seem to be any real reason to invest in him as a legitimate fantasy option for the 2013-14 season.

Kenny Perry spun a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of The Greenbrier Classic and will easily make the cut at 5-under 135.

Perry flirted with the front page of the leaderboard in his opening round, going out in 29 before playing his back nine 3-over. His second lap around The Old White TPC was a little more balanced of an attack with five birdes and two bogeys spread throughout the course of his round. For the week, he's landed 27 of his 36 GIR. He doesn't have a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since his T19 at the 2010 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Kenny Perry picked off the first major championship of his career, winning the Constellation Senior Players Championship, and now heads to West Virginia for The Greenbrier Classic.

It doesn't seem like that long ago that KP was in a playoff at Augusta National with Angel Cabrera and Chad Campbell, but that was 2009. With the monkey finally off his back, he heads back to the PGA TOUR for his third start of the season. He missed the cut at Memorial and shared 33rd at the HP Byron Nelson.
