Pat Perez & Coach Wink Talk West Coast Swing
Some down and dirty video of PGA Tour professional Pat Perez and coach Mark Winkley, of The Estancia Club in Scottsdale, shot on Wednesday January 30th.
Double P and Coach Wink worked together for the first time in 2013, with PP having been on the road for three straight – the Sony Open, the Humana Challenge and the Farmers Insurance Open – before his return home this week for the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.
PP and Wink talk about the past few weeks, what they’re working on this week, as well as how coach Chris Dorris is helping Double with his mental game.
(Pardon the background noise as it was hard to find a quiet spot at Estancia yesterday with the ground crew busy at work.)
Pat Perez Signed Farmers Tickets
There were a few leftover tickets from last week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, so instead of letting them go to waste, we had Pat Perez sign them and are giving them away to the two fans who share this post the most times via Facebook in the next forty-eight hours.
Tix will go in the mail Saturday for two lucky winners, so get sharing!

Phoenix Open Prepping With Coach Winkley
Pat Perez spent Wednesday at his home course, Estancia Country Club, working with his coach Mark Winkley. PP and Coach Wink hadn’t worked together since pre-Hawai’i, so today’s session was a review of the past three weeks and some fine-tuning. Stay tuned for video of Double P and Coach Wink going live this evening.
PP’s Annual Phoenix Open Shindig
A hearty thanks to all who came out for another Phoenix Open gathering hosted by Pat Perez at his home in Scottsdale. Every January, PP invites over local friends and Tour reps who do right by him all year. Homemade Mexican food was again the desired menu item and it proved to be a great night for all, early in the week before the event is officially underway.
Cody Ross Caddies For Pat Perez
Pat Perez played a practice round at TPC Scottsdale on Tuesday in preparation for this year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open and had a guest caddy on the bag – long-time bud and MLB player Cody Ross, currently with the Arizona Diamondbacks after a stint with the Boston Red Sox and earning a World Series ring with the San Francisco Giants in 2010.
T-21st Finish For Perez At Farmers
A Monday finish proved to be a grind at Torrey Pines on Monday morning and in the end, a T-21st ending for Pat Perez. Picking up where he left off, PP kicked things off on the thirteenth hole and earned a five on the par five.
Trouble brewed on the par-four fourteenth where Perez flew the green and put it in the canyon, taking a drop and closing the hole with a double bogey.
Perez responded with a par on the fifteenth, but earned a clutch birdie on the par-three sixteenth, the birdie putt rolling in from the rough.
Still, the shot of the day came on fifteen when sent his drive wide and pulled a shot-of-the-tournament second shot, putting it over the trees and sailing it over the trees and onto the green. Two putts later, a world-class par was in the books.
A bogey on seventeen proved to be a set-back, but a balls-out second shot on eighteen fell short of the green and into the water. A drop and a chip by Perez left a great par putt for a final round 74.
Next up, back to Phoenix for the Waste Management.
