This is the 41-year-old's first appearance since T22 in 2009 (70-72-66-72) and qualified from his come-from-behind win at the OHL Classic back in November.

The Arizona State product is 16-for-20 on the season with 11 top 25s, five top 10s and four top 5s, most recently a T2 at the Wells Fargo six starts ago. He checks in off missed cuts at the US Open and The Open, and a WD during R2 at last week's Porsche European Open. Aug 2 - 5:12 PM

World No. 42 Pat Perez twirled a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to post 4-under 212, up 55 places to T11 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Perez is T10 and his 66 was the low round of the day.

This is the 41-year-old's 14th straight appearance with one prior top 10, a solo 3rd in 2006. He arrived at 5th in the FedExCup standings, 14-for-15 on the season with nine top 25s and five top 10s, including a T3 at the SBS TOC, a T2 last week at the Wells Fargo, and his second TOUR title at the OHL Classic.

World No. 58 Pat Perez authored a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to round off his 13th appearance on 9-under 279, up six spots into a two-way T2, one shy of champion Brian Harman, who finished birdie-birdie for 68. UPDATE: Perez jumps 16 places to a career-high 42nd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

This was the 41-year-old's fifth top 25 at the Wells Fargo and second top 10, joining T6 in 2011 (Quail Hollow), where he was solo 2nd thru 54 holes but closed in 3-over 75. It's his ninth top 25 of the season (15 starts), fifth top 10 and third podium (Win, OHL Classic; T3, SBS TOC); and a fifth career runner-up in 391 career events, first since T2 at the 2014 Farmers. After opening in 72-69-70, the Arizonian began T8 on 5-under, three shy of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed. He found seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.385 putts per GIR and 4.443 SG: Putting. Perez went out in 2-under, outpacing bogeys at 5 and 8 with birdies at 2-4 and 6, and co-led with Reed on 9-under after birdies at 10 and 12, but fell back with a 1-putt double bogey-6 at 14. He retrieved those two shots with circles at 16 and 18, but came up one short.

The ASU product opened his week with a four birdie, one bogey, effort on Thursday. He returned to Harbour Town Golf Links this morning and replicated that effort, adding one additional birdie today. The highlight on the greens came at the par-4 sixth hole where he drained a 16'8" birdie putt. That came immediately after a missed opportunity at the par-5 fifth, where he missed a 4'2" birdie attempt. Quick starts are nothing new for Perez this year. Other than his WD at the WM Phoenix Open, he's now positioned himself inside the top 40 thru two rounds in all 12 stroke-play starts.

Pat Perez grabbed an early lead and never looked back in today's 2-and-1 victory over Australian Marc Leishman, escaping the second round of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play with two points to gain control of Group 3.

Perez applied the pressure early today, wedging his approach at the par-4 first to inside three feet, leading to an early concession by Leishman. The ASU product gave one away at the fourth hole, but bounced back immediately with another strong approach with his wedge at the par-4 fifth. The Aussie fought back to square things up at the tricky par-4 13th. Perez was fuming at that point, but Leishman gifted him a pair of bogeys at the next two holes to clear a path to victory for Perez. With this win, Perez is guaranteed at least a playoff chance to advance to the Sweet 16. His Friday opponent is Lee Westwood who sits at 1-1-0 after resting today since Jason Day withdrew from the event.

Pat Perez coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 during the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, finding an early spot inside the top 10.

The ASU product split just eight (of 14) fairways but didn't veer too far off the path as he was still able to pelt 17 greens in regulation. Perez didn't catch fire with his flat stick but he did splash home a couple long ones. The first came at the opening par-4 first hole, where he converted a 17'1" birdie but the highlight came 11 holes later when he rammed home a 38'7" birdie bomb. Perez is playing his first event as an official member of Team PXG, and he's making them look good after day one.

World No. 66 Pat Perez smoothed a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open to post 9-under 133, up six spots to T2, one back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson, who also shot 66.

The 40-year-old played the entirety of his second round on Saturday -- along with 58 others in the same boat -- and landed seven (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation. He kicked off with a 2-putt birdie-4 at the first and eight pars later, squared 5 at the par-4 ninth for a second lap in a row. The Arizonian came to life on the inward half, circling five birdies at 11, 13, 14, 17 and 18, three conventional from between three and 17 feet, adding a 12-footer from the fringe for birdie-4 at 11 and pitching in for another birdie-4 at 17. All together, it equaled just 22 putts.

World No. 66 Pat Perez signed for a 4-under-par 34-33=67 after the first round of the Genesis Open, currently T5 on the leaderboard, three shy of clubhouse leader Sam Saunders.

The 40-year-old is making his 16th appearance and is 12-for-15 with just one top 10 (8th/2007). He's 7-for-8 this season and entered the week 4th in the FedExCup standings with four top 10s in eight starts, highlighted by his second TOUR win at the OHL Classic in mid-November. The Arizonian began off No. 10 tee and was bogey-free 5-under thru 17 holes, ending on a sour note with a walk-off 5 at the par-4 ninth. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and requiring 25 putts. Perez made 125'4" feet worth of putts, highlighted by back-to-back birdie bombs at 15 and 16 from 36'11" and 40'4", respectfully.

Playing Monterey Peninsula CC, World No. 73 Pat Perez styled a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 6-under 137, up 52 spots to T5 with play still in progress.

The 40-year-old is making his 15th appearance with three prior top 10s, including solo 2nd on debut in 2002. He opened with a one-birdie two-bogey 73 at Pebble Beach Golf Links and began his second frame (Friday) off No. 10 tee. The Arizonian, one week on from a first-round WD at the Phoenix Open, got 17 holes completed before play was suspended (fog) and returned Saturday morning (with 120 others) and completed the par-3 ninth with par. He squared bogey-4s at 11 and 7, but camouflaged them with nine birdies on 13 (of 13) fairways and 18 greens in regulation, posting 1.611 putts per GIR.

ASU alum Pat Perez has withdrawn from the Waste Management Phoenix Open during round one, he was 3-over-par through six holes at the time of the WD. UPDATE: A shoulder injury was cited as the culprit.

Perez arrived in stellar form but not much course history to brag about. In 15 previous appearances he's posted nothing better than 11th place, failing to play the weekend eight times. Today, he opened with four pars before finding OB on his tee shot at the par-4 fifth. After reloading he found the greenside bunker on his approach before splashing home a 5'4" putt to save triple bogey. Perez scribbled par at the next hole and struck his tee shot to 40'11" at the par-3 seventh before calling it quits. The Phoenix native is returning from a serious shoulder injury this season, but no injury has been cited for today's WD. UPDATE: Perez updated his fans via Twitter saying, "Sorry folks. Shoulder has flared up again. Have to try and protect if for the rest of the year."

World No. 87 Pat Perez conjured up a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to finish up his 16th appearance on 9-under 279, up one spot into a five-way T4, four back of champion Jon Rahm, who shot 65.

The 40-year-old, runner-up here in 2014, began the final round in an eight-way T5 on 7-under, two adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Patrick Rodgers and Brandt Snedeker. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he erased a lone bogey-5 at the second (3-putt from 54'9") with three birdies at Nos. 7, 10 (25'10") and 16. The Arizonian landed 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.867 putts per GIR, and had an 11-footer for birdie at the par-5 18th to share runner-up, but missed. He failed to birdie any of the four par 5s, missing his best chance from 6'3" at the par-5 ninth, and also whiffed birdie from 24 inches at the par-4 fifth. It is however, Perez' fourth top 25 this season in six starts, all four doubling as top 10s, and his third top 5, highlighted by his win at the OHL Classic.

World No. 87 and Torrey Pines High School alum Pat Perez smoothed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 7-under 209, up 30 spots on the live leaderboard to T5, one back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Tony Finau and tying Finau for the low lap of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Perez' 67 tied the low round with two others and is in an eight-way T5, two adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Patrick Rodgers and Brandt Snedeker.

The 40-year-old began the third round T35 on 2-under after opening his 16th appearance in 4-under 68 (North Course) and 2-over 74 on the South Course. Both of his first two laps were marred with a double bogey, but avoided the big number today, squaring one bogey-6 at the sixth (3-putt from 63'4"). The Arizonian preceded that blemish with three straight birdies, highlighted by a 52-footer at the fifth, adding further circles on holes 13, 17 (hole-out from 34'1" away), and 18. He tallied eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 3.643 strokes tee-to-green. Perez won his second TOUR title at the OHL Classic back in November, coming from one back with 4-under 67 to beat 54-hole leader Gary Woodland by two.
Jan 28 - 4:13 PM

Local hero Pat Perez kicked off his week at the Farmers Insurance Open with a 4-under-par 35-33=68, positioning himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The Torrey Pines High School alum is making his 16th appearance at this event. It's been an up-and-down ride here for Perez who owns a pair of top 10s but has also finished T50 or worse on nine occasions. This time around he arrived with a T7, WIN, and T3 in three of his last four starts. That good form carried over as Perez teed it up at a comfortable Torrey Pines North layout. He circled six birdies and his lone blemish was a double bogey at the par-4 sixth where he took two swipes from the greenside bunker before two-putting. Perez arrived in good form and is off to a good start. Gamers should watch very closely as next week's Waste Management Open should also line up well for the Arizona Sun Devil.
