Pat Perez collected two paychecks during the fall to arrive at the holiday break ranked 145th in the FedExCup standings.
Perez missed the cut in his first two events before finishing the Fall Series with a little momentum. He struggled down the stretch last season, posting finishes outside the top 40 in each of his last 11 tournaments. Even with the cold streak, he found his way into the Playoffs and finished 98th on the FEC leaderboard. It's been 15 events since Perez has posted a top 25, so gamers can take the wait-and-see approach before reinvesting. Dec 21 - 5:08 PM

Pat Perez submitted a 5-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to establish the new clubhouse lead.

Perez has been scuffling for months. His T33 at the CIMB Classic two weeks ago is his only top 40 in 14 starts.. However, but he's posted top 20 in both appearances at El Camaleón, so course history won today's battle in the something-has-to-give division. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled six birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-4 11th hole. His only blemish occurred at the par-3 15th where he walked off with bogey.

Pat Perez returns to Playa del Carmen, México, for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Perez knows his way around the course with a pair of top 20s in his previous two trips to El Camaleón Golf Club. Unfortunately, his recent form is not as pleasant, missing the cut in seven of his last 10 PGA TOUR starts. A T33 at the CIMB Classic two weeks ago is a step in the right direction, but gamers should take a wait-and-see approach before re-investing.

Pat Perez stumbled to a 5-over-par 39-38=77 in his opening round of the Open.

Back inside the ropes since a bulging disc ended his run in the FedExCup Playoffs during his second round of the second leg, Perez did nothing today to silence the doubters. He split seven (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, picking off just one birdie along the way, and that needed to drop from just outside 26 feet at the par-3 seventh hole. He also squared four bogeys and a double at Silverado. Perez hasn't cracked the top 40 in a tournament since the RBC Heritage (T18) in mid-April.

Pat Perez is listed in the published field of next week's Open.

If he's good to go for the lid-lifter of the 2014-15 season, Perez will be returning after a bulging disc forced him to withdraw during his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship five weeks ago tomorrow. He finished the season ranked 98th in FedExCup points, disappointing since he sat inside the top 40 as late as mid-May. PP failed to log a top 40 in any of his last 11 starts.

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.

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.
Aug 27 - 9:29 AM

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.
Aug 13 - 2:18 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 12:18 PM

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.
