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. Nov 13 - 4:17 PM

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.

Pat Perez bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach 12-under 201, down one spot to T6 with play winding down for the day.

After opening his 11th appearance in twin 66s, the 40-year-old had a mixed bag in the third round, outpacing three bogeys with five birdies, including a walk-off 3 at the 18th after hitting his approach from 118 yards to 21 inches. That was a nice rebound from bogey-6 at the 16th, where he put his approach from 192 yards woefully short and into the water. The Arizona native and resident landed 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR though a glaring -2.839 SG: Putting. Four of his five conversions were from inside of seven feet and he missed a pair of par-savers from inside of seven feet as well.
Nov 5 - 7:28 PM

Pat Perez picked apart TPC Summerlin with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, moving him into T2 on the live leaderboard on 10-under 132, with play still in progress.

The Arizona State product is showing no lingering effects from the shoulder surgery that sidelined him for 33 weeks. After an opening 5-under 66 that included an eagle at the par-5 13th, he duplicated the effort today, circling the eagle on the par-5 16th the second time around. Perez has found just 11 (of 28) fairways through two rounds, but he currently ranks eighth in strokes gained approaching-the-green, so his irons are making up for any lack of accuracy on the tee box. Playing on a Major Medical Extension, Perez started the week with 14 starts remaining, in need to $633,067 or 400 FedExCup points to remain exempt.
Nov 4 - 4:15 PM

After 33 weeks on the bench, Pat Perez is ready to return from shoulder surgery as he turns his attention toward TPC Kuala Lumpur for this week's CIMB Classic.

After opening the 2015-16 season with a 3-for-11 start, Perez was forced to shut it down and have shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum. In hindsight it was easy to see something was wrong, as Perez was 233-for-365 (64%) heading into the season, in terms of cut-making so a 3-for-11 start was completely uncharacteristic. The Arizona State product has quite the reputation for his performance on the West Coast, so gamers should be keeping a close eye on him this week to see how his form looks before potentially re-investing when he returns stateside.

Pat Perez has gone through Arthroscopic Labrum Repair of the Shoulder surgery for a torn labrum and will be out for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

The Arizona State product posted a press release on his website today announcing the successful surgery. Perez stated ""I felt really good early January before heading to Hawaii for the Sony. On the range before Friday’s round in La Quinta the following week, things worsened and it took everything I had just to get through Saturday’s round." His timetable was not exact but it was stated the surgery would "likely sideline [Perez] until the fall series ramps up in October." Gamers everywhere are now getting an answer for why Mr. West Coast Swing went 1-for-5 in California and Arizona this year. Perez will be able to begin physical therapy in about four weeks.

Scottsdale resident Pat Perez does battle in his 15th consecutive Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The ASU product missed his first six cuts at the Phoenix Open (2002-07) but has cashed in seven of his last eight, including T26 last year. Remarkably, he doesn't own a top 10 in 14 tries (best is solo 11th in 2014). His career scoring average on the par-71 TPC Scottsdale (41 rounds) is 70.39, including 70-69-68-71 in 2015, the first edition contested on the Tom Weiskopf renovated course. The 39-year-old missed the cut by one at last week's Farmers after rounds of 73-70. It's his fifth missed cut of the season on seven starts, including three of his last four.
Feb 2 - 9:39 PM

Pat Perez is grinding on the range following a lackluster fall schedule.

Perez posted a 1-for-4 record over the fall, pulling a 180 after his 22-for-26 posting last season. Perez remains a great follow on instagram, where it's easy to see his dedication for the game, great movies, and rock shows. Gamers should look for Perez to bounce back early in 2016.

Pat Perez will take full advantage of the no-cut nature of this week's CIMB Classic as he preps for Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

The Arizona State product has sputtered out to an 0-and-2 start to the new season. It's surprising considering that he's already reach half of his total cuts missed from a season ago. On paper, this week's venue should set up nicely for the great wedge player as it checks in under 7,000 total yards. Very manageable distances and that makes Perez a great sleeper in all formats this week.

Pat Perez ranks 43rd in the FedExCup standings as he prepares for battle at Conway Farms during this week's BMW Championship.

The Arizona State product has collected $1,562,263 in earnings on the season, thanks to a 21-for-25 record. He is just under $194,000 away from eclipsing a career high in earnings. Perez currently ranks 40th in driving accuracy and just 137th in driving distance. Conway Farms is the type of course that could really fit Perez' eye from the get go.

At 8-under-par 67-67=134, Pat Perez owns outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Quicken Loans National.

Someone was going to post a target. Perez went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club this morning, so he's the guy. After going bogey-free with four birdies on Thursday, the 39-year-old traded seven birdies with three bogeys today. Three of his birdies ranged 10-17 feet. This is Perez' 11th consecutive payday going back to a T20 at the Valero Texas Open. Not that he hasn't performed in any month on the schedule, but it's encouraging to see him sustain strong form this deep in a season. He's normally ignored after the West Coast Swing.

Pat Perez has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

He's a late entry into the field of 156, and why not. Perez has cashed in nine consecutive starts, six yielding a top 25. Twenty-seven of those 36 rounds went for a red number. He's 57th in the FedExCup standings. The 39-year-old missed the cut at Glen Abbey in 2013, but we should expect a better result this time.

Pat Perez enters this week's John Deere Classic No. 112 in the Official World Golf Ranking, up from No. 207 to begin the year.

Perez is a gaudy 16-for-19 on the season with eight top 25s (two for top 10s) and eight consecutive cuts made. His season-best T5 at the Crowne Plaza Invitation came three starts ago, going T57-T22 in his last two events. The 39-year-old has a spotty record at the TPC Deere Run cashing six times in 12 starts with his one top 10 (solo fourth) coming all the way back in his tournament debut in 2002. It's gone downhill since. After a T12 at the 2003 JDC, he's played 10 more Deere's and hasn't cracked the top 30. Moreover, he hasn't made the weekend in his last four. This is a classic case of current form vs. course form for fantasy managers.

Pat Perez twirled a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's opening round of the Memorial, finishing with a piece of the early clubhouse lead.

Perez has been dynamite for two months with no worse than a T26 (RBC Heritage) in his last six starts. He took last week off following a T5 at Colonial. He's also cashed in six consecutive appearance at Muirfield Village, so it would have been surprising if he didn't score well in terrific conditions today. He went 6-for-14 in chances with six birdies, all from just 6'2" and in. Two bogeys, including a three-putt from outside 31 feet at the par-3 16th, tainted his card, but he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check with a clip of 4.622.
