Pat Perez withdrew during his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship due to a bulging disc.
Well, that was a quick diagnosis. Clearly, Perez has been dealing with this, but we were made privy to it today. He opened on the first hole at TPC Boston and went out in 2-over-par 38 before calling it quits. With an opening 77 already submitted, he was 8-over through 27 holes. He entered the week ranked 87th in the FedExCup standings, so his Playoffs are over. Aug 30 - 12:25 PM

Pat Perez staggers into TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Perez was one of the hottest golfers on TOUR to start the season, and even found himself inside the top 20 in the FedExCup standings after 10 starts. It's been a steady decline since, and he now sits in troubled waters, at 89th place in the FEC standings. With 10 straight starts without a top 40, it would be ill-advised to expect a strong finish out of Perez this week.

Pat Perez has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Wednesday WDs are always a little scary, but at least we have ample notice to adjust. Of course, it wasn't like he deserved our attention anyway with no top 40s in his last nine starts. Perez will enter the FedExCup Playoffs sitting just outside the top 70 in points.

Pat Perez gained entry into this week's PGA Championship when Rory McIlroy won the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

When Geoff Ogilvy emerged with the title at the Barracuda Championship and assumed one of the remaining two vacancies at Valhalla Golf Club, the final was reserved for the winner at Firestone if not otherwise exempt. Perez was first alternate. He'll be making his eighth start in the season's final major and first since sharing 21st place at Kiawah Island in 2012. After a sparkling opening to the season, he's fallen on hard times. Perez has cashed just twice in his last six starts and finds himself in a slump that has extended eight consecutive starts without a top 40. (Shawn Stefani is now first alternate at the PGA.)
Aug 3 - 7:14 PM

Pat Perez stumbled to a 5-over-par 37-38=75 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and his even-par 210 missed the 54-hole cut on the number.

This is a stunning turn of events given PP was bogey-free 5-under through 36 holes. Joining him on the sidelines Sunday due to a MDF are Woody Austin (210), Scott Brown (210), Martin Flores (210), John Daly (211), Jeff Maggert (211), Steven Bowditch (211), Derek Ernst (212), Greg Chalmers (212), Scott Gardiner (212), Jamie Lovemark (213), D.A. Points (214), Mark Wilson (214), Brendan Steele (215) and James Hahn (217). The 15 players chopped by the most recent cut leaves 74 players fighting it out in Sunday's final round.
Jul 5 - 5:31 PM

Pat Perez added a bogey-free, 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post bogey-free, 5-under 135 at the break.

He's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead despite the absence of miscues. His only birdie today was a standard-issue 4 at the 12th hole where he stuck his approach to eight-and-a-half feet. Perez did miss on three tries inside 10 feet, including a 44-incher at the par-4 second, but gamers will happily accept this week's bounce-back from his atrocious outing at Congressional. Granted, it's apples and oranges, but it's mildly amusing to consider that at this time one week ago today, he had taken 24 more strokes over the same number of holes. So far this week, he's 8-for-8 in scrambling.
Jul 4 - 12:46 PM

Pat Perez fashioned a bogey-free, 33-33=66 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic to sit two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

After completing 36 holes of last week's Quicken Loans National in 17-over 78-81=159, all bets were off on how he'd fare today. True to form, he swung the pendulum to the other side of the execution spectrum and missed only two (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation at The Old White TPC. Perez circled four birdies, including runs of 36'6" and 11'4" at the eighth and 15th holes, respectively. Whew!
Jul 3 - 5:15 PM

Pat Perez is up for the challenge of Congressional Country Club at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Perez is 6-for-7 at the Quicken Loans National with two top 15s to his name. It's no surprise when you consider Perez has a knack for delivering on tracks that lean toward the hard side of the difficulty spectrum. He's been quiet of late, but you can't overlook the start of the season when seven of his first 14 events yielded top-20 finishes.

Pat Perez has been removed from the published field of this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

He's been a frequent supporter of the tournament, so this is a bit of a surprise. Perhaps he's adjusted his schedule. Perez has been money all season. He's survived 14 consecutive cuts and sits 40th in FedExCup points.
May 13 - 12:15 PM

In his opening round of THE PLAYERS, Pat Perez toured TPC Sawgrass in 4-under-par 34-34=68.

Recent form over course history, at least for one day. PP hasn't missed a cut in 13 starts. That run includes three top 10s and another four top 25s. Meanwhile, since his debut at this tournament in 2003, he hadn't broken 69 in 32 rounds, but the 33rd was the charm. He split nine (of 12) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to five birdies again just one bogey. His only notable conversion measured 15'6" at the par-3 17th. Perez sits five strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 8 - 6:18 PM

Pat Perez crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to join Rory McIlroy and Mark Wilson in a share of the early lead at 6-under 210.

Perez circled six birdies and tapped in 12 pars for his lap around Quail Hollow. Highlights included a 22'3" birdie at the par-4 eighth and a 53-foot birdie bomb on the par-3 17th. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that he was so steady despite missing half of the fairways and finding just 10 GIR. While it appears unlikely he will hold the lead at day's end, he is still positioned well for a run at his second PGA TOUR victory with a hot final round on Sunday.
May 3 - 1:35 PM

Pat Perez catapulted himself into contention with a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Perez put on a clinic today at Harbour Town Golf Links. He did his damage in pairs, posting back-to-back birdies on four separate occasions. He also dropped a stand-alone birdie at 15. Perez' round featured two hole-outs from off the green, with the first coming from 11 yards out on the par-4 third, and then capitalizing for birdie from five yards out on the par-4 eighth. Sitting at 3-under 281 for the tournament, Perez currently holds the 72-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 20 - 12:51 PM

Pat Perez rode a roller coaster on the way to a third-round 3-under-par 35-34=69 at the Valero Texas Open.

Perez circled seven birdies at TPC San Antonio but also handed back two bogeys and a double bogey. Two of his three blemishes were the product of poor chipping, while his double bogey at the par-5 eighth included a three putt. Overall the putter has been what has propped him up. He has gained at least a stroke with the flat stick in each of his three rounds and ranks third in strokes gained for the tournament. He enters the finale at 8-under 208.
Mar 29 - 5:40 PM

Pat Perez chased his opening 68 at the Valero Texas Open with a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his second round to post 5-under 139.

He started on the back side of TPC San Antonio today and promptly poured in four birdies to hide a lone bogey-5 at the 15th hole. His longest birdie dropped in from 13'7" at 12. But PP played his last 10 in birdie-free 2-over with a double bogey at the par-4 first where he didn't reach the putting surface until his fourth shot, and then whiffed on a 40-inch bogey try. He's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 28 - 7:36 PM

Pat Perez opened the Valero Texas Open with a 4-under-par 35-33=68, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

It took two-and-a-half hours due to fog, but Perez finally hit the first tee in the first threesome at 10:00 a.m. CT. He toured TPC San Antonio with a wicked-hot putter in the bag. After hitting 13 greens in regulation, PP rolled in six conversions from outside 10 feet. This set included four birdies, the most notable measuring 21 feet at the par-4 11th hole and 17'5" at the par-5 18th where he laid up to 92 yards. His longest of the day disappeared for par from 38'6" at 12. That he suffered just one bogey is fine given the difficulty of the layout. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting clip rested in the vicinity of 4.000.
