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.

Kenny Perry will step outside of the Champions Tour to play in this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Perry is still fully exempt on the PGA TOUR, but this will be his first start with the flat bellies in 2013. He last played here in 2010, tying for 16th. It will be interesting to see how he fares in a field that isn't one of the strongest of the season.

Kenny Perry is set to make his fifth PGA TOUR start of the season at The Greenbrier Classic.

Perry is playing mainly on the Champions Tour, where he has a win and a runner up already this season. When he's jumped back in with the younger crowd he's held up nicely, making three cuts in four tries. He teed it up at The Old White TPC last season and finished T39.

Kenny Perry followed his opening 66 at the Transitions Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round.

A frustrating day for the 51-year-old. He buried six birdies but never got lower than 1-under his entire round. That was due to three bogeys and a double-bogey 5 at the 17th hole where he three-putted from 6'6". Four of his birdies disappeared from beyond 10 feet, the longest of which measuring 19'10" at the 15th. He's at 6-under 136, just four strokes off the lead.

Kenny Perry posted a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Transitions Championship.

The night after Trevor Immelman withdrew, the other primary pitchman for this week's title sponsor sits just five strokes off the clubhouse lead after one round. Perry hit 14 greens and took a tidy 27 putts for his first sub-70 round of nine on the PGA TOUR this year. He circled six birdies, five of which disappearing from at least 12 feet from the cup. It included a five-yarder from the fringe at the fourth hole, a 24'6" gem at the eighth and a conversion of 22'8" at the 13th. He also rolled in a 12-footer for par at No. 17. Despite being fully exempt through 2014, he has minimal fantasy value as he will compete full-time on the Champions Tour.

Kenny Perry carded a 4-under-par 37-30=67 in his opening round of the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am.

It took the 50-year-old 10 holes to circle his first birdie, but it opened the floodgates, as he rattled off four straight beginning at the third hole. He signed his card three back of Russ Cochran's clubhouse lead. Perry had been sidelined since withdrawing from Arnie's Invite on March 24 due to hip and knee injuries.
