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.

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.

Pat Perez spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 in today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to post 10-under 270, which has him currently sitting inside the top 10.

Perez piped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, circling six birdies against no bogeys. The 39-year-old began the final frame at 4-under (T24) and seven shots off the pace. His first three conversions were from inside seven feet on Nos. 1, 7, and 10, but started to heat things up with a chip-in birdie on the par-5 11th, six yards from the hole. He would save his best for last adding circles on Nos. 16 and 18, with each roll disappearing into the cup from outside of 18 feet.

Pat Perez makes his way to Fort Worth, Texas, for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and slots in at 51st in the FedExCup standings.

Perez is 7-for-10 at the Crowne Plaza Invite with three top 10s, all coming in consecutive editions in 2007, 2008 and 2010 (he didn't play in '09). He hasn't had much to show for his efforts at Colonial CC since, finishing T62-T63-WD and MC in last year's loop. The 39-year-old has cashed 13 times in 16 starts on the season, claiming six tops 25s, five of which have come in his last six starts. The one start that didn't, he finished T26. So, he's consistently cashing top-30 checks, but has only cracked the top 10 once (T4, AT&T Pebble Beach).

Pat Perez posted a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

With top 20s in both starts in Texas and in each of his last three trips to Hilton Head Island, Perez was a natural to populate numerous lineups this week. He hit 10 greens and connected for five birdies, including a hole-out from the rough eight yards away at the par-4 12th. Two of his conventional conversions ran 11-16 feet.

Pat Perez sets his eyes on Harbour Town Golf Links at this week's RBC Heritage.

Perez has enjoyed his time spent at this short and difficult track. Most recently he's collected top 20s in each of his last three tries. Perez has eye-popping recent form as well, securing top 20s in three of his last five starts ahead of this week. All the arrows are pointing up for Perez and gamers should act accordingly.

Pat Perez heads to Bay Hill Club and Lodge this week for his 13th start at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Perez has been steady at this event, missing the cut just once in 12 starts. He also enters the week on the heels of eight straight cuts made. Surprisingly, Perez ranks just 132nd in strokes gained: total on the season. While the stats may not point you in his direction, his course history and current form certainly will.
