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. Mar 23 - 6:02 PM

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.
Jan 26 - 7:36 PM

World No. 118 Pat Perez fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the SBS Tournament of Champions to finish off his second appearance on 16-under 276, up 10 spots on the live leaderboard to T3. UPDATE: With play completed, Perez finished in a three-way T3, six adrift of champion Justin Thomas.

The 40-year-old began the finale on 10-under (T13) after opening in 69-71-69. He striped 13 (of 15) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation, posting 2.213 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.878 SG: Putting. The Arizonian circled six, including three straight on Nos. 7-9, kicking off the run with a 36-footer for birdie-3 at the seventh. He ends the week with one eagle and 20 birdies versus six bogeys and will post his third top 10 of the season in four starts and second top 5. Perez bests his T10 on debut here in 2010.
Jan 8 - 6:45 PM

Pat Perez fared well in the opening round of the SBS Tournament of Champions, posting a 4-under-par 34-35=69 to kick off his week on Maui.

The Arizona State alum hoisted the trophy in his last start before the holiday break (OHL Classic at Mayakoba) and he's continuing that strong play thus far at Kapalua Resort. Perez striped all 15 fairways to give himself a relative stress-free round of approach shots. That accuracy off the tee helped set up 16 greens in regulation and the putter was the only thing holding him back from going any lower. The first putting blemish was a three-jack leading to his lone bogey of the round (par-3 eighth) and his miss from 5'1" at the par-4 16th certainly stung a little. Perez walked off the course losing 0.021 strokes putting on the round. He'll need to tidy up that short game if he wants to remain in contention as the week progresses.
Jan 5 - 8:12 PM

Pat Perez makes his second visit to Kapaula Resort ahead of this week's SBS Tournament of Champions.

Perez found his way into the Tournament of Champions in 2010 and secured a T10 by week's end, posting four straight rounds of 2-under 71 or better. Fast forward seven years and he's found his way into the field again, this time with a recent fall win at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Gamers that are newer to fantasy golf may have been completely shocked by that win but long-time fans know that Perez has been one of the steadiest golfers on TOUR since 2005. In 379 career starts the Arizona State product has won or finished within three shots of the winner 19 times (5%). His shoulder injury looks like a distant memory now and gamers should continue to invest in formats where he can provide value such as DFS.
Jan 2 - 8:24 AM

Pat Perez, a pre-tourney 80/1 outright, overcame a one-shot deficit with a final-round 4-under-par 31-36=67 to win the 10th OHL Classic at Mayakoba in a tournament-record-tying 21-under-par 263, besting 54-hole leader Gary Woodland by two shots and claiming his second TOUR title in his 379th career start.

The 40-year-old arrived off a three-way T7 last week at the Shriners, his first top 10 since T5 at the 2015 Crowne Plaza. Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension (shoulder surgery), he began the finale in solo second after opening his fourth appearance in 68-66 and a week-low 62. The Arizonian split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR. He went out in bogey-free 31, circling birdies on Nos. 1, 3, 4, 7 and 8 to take a three-shot lead at the turn and then coasted to the finish with eight pars and a lone bogey-5 at the 12th. Perez wins for the first time since the 50th Bob Hope Classic in January, 2009, where he came from three back with a 3-under 69 to win by three.

Pat Perez rode an outward 29 to a 9-under-par 29-33=62 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach the three-quarter pole on 17-under 196, good for the low round of the week and climbing nine places to solo second, one back of 54-hole leader Gary Woodland, who shot 66.

The 40-year-old, playing this season on a Major Medical Extension, recorded his first top 10 since T5 at the 2015 Crowne Plaza with a three-way T7 at last week's Shriners (66-66-69-68). He's making his fifth appearance in Mexico with a best of T13 on debut in 2007, missing the cut here last year (by one) on laps of 70-71. The Arizonian kicked off in 68-66 to begin R3 T11 and five shy of Woodland. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, camouflaging a lone bogey-4 at the 10th with eight birdies and an eagle at the par-5 fifth. Perez, whose 29 is the low 9-hole score on TOUR this season, is chasing his second TOUR title in his 379th career start, joining his win in 2009 at the 50th Bob Hope Classic where he came from 3 back with 3-under 69 to win by 3.

Pat Perez signed for a 3-under-par 32-36=68 after the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post 15-under 269, down one place into a three-way T7.

The 40-year-old, playing this season an a Major Medical Extension, records his first top 10 at the Shriners in his 11th appearance. His previous best was T14 in 2010 and had missed the cut in the last three editions. It's also the ASU product's first top 10 since T5 at the 2015 Crowne Plaza Invitational. He mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, and while losing -0.421 strokes tee-to-green, he posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.847 SG: Putting. Perez squared a lone bogey-6 at the 13th (failed scramble) but camouflaged it with four birdies, highlighted by a 17-footer at the par-5 ninth. He also dropped an 18'4" par-saver at the eighth. In his first start since labrum surgery in March, 2016, the Arizonian posted a T33 at the no-cut CIMB two weeks ago on a sponsor invite.
