Just A Friendly Reminder That Cream Rises

For my stereo guy Eric Crocker and his bud Sheldon. A reminder that cream rises and dreams die when that final ping pong ball hits the bottom of that red cup.

Perez Playing New TaylorMade SLDR Driver

The new TaylorMade SLDR Driver will be in the mix for Pat Perez this week at the RBC Canadian Open. We spoke with PP earlier this week and asked him about his newest club and we received a three-word response; “it’s absolutely sick” – which for those who don’t know, is the highest praise.

A handful of pros began using the new driver weeks back at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois but this week be the first week Perez has it in his bag, haven taken last week off.

Tune in this week to see how PP bombs away in Ontario.

Double P : F That Means : Left-Hand-Man

Honestly, all this talk about being someone’s right hand man. What’s wrong with the left hand?

Perez In Ontario For RBC Canadian Open

Pat Perez is back in action this week for the RBC Canadian Open in Ontario, taking place at Glen Abbey Golf Club. Perez is currently on the bubble for the upcoming PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York in early August.

Perez enters this week 75th in FedExCup points and eclipsed the million dollar mark in earnings this season, hauling in over $200K after a T6th finish at The Greenbrier Classic two weeks back.

Perez missed the cut a week later at the John Deere Classic, took a week off and will compete in Ontario this week, where his best finishes came in 2007 (T10th), 2002 (T12th) and 2009 (T24th).

Tune in for all the latest from Glen Abbey this week.

Back To My Samurai Stomping Grounds

It’s not a trip back home to San Diego without popping into the Samurai Japanese Restaurant in Solana Beach. Figured out on this trip that we’re going on almost twenty years of tearing up ‘The Rai’ with friends and family and for some reason, our bud Charlie Song lets us come back for more. I even got a free t-shirt this time.

For my San Diego peeps, best teppanyaki in town, great people and though I don’t eat seafood, everyone that comes with always raves about the sushi. Drop by and give Charlie some hell on my behalf.

Taking In ‘Opening Day’ At Del Mar

Would much rather be competing at Muirfield this week, but nothing wrong with Opening Day at Del Mar. Perfect weather, great people watching and always good to be back home in San Diego. Biggest win was bookending the day with some Fidel’s and Roberto’s, too. Back for more on Thursday and off to Ontario to play Glen Abbey. Thanks again to my bud Gary Stute for the great seats, as always.

Best Jam On Grohl’s “Sound City” Documentary

Love the “Sound City” documentary Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Nirvana put together and the song he does with the guys from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, “Heaven And All” just kills. Crank it up.

Double P : FedExCup & Money List Standings

Coming off a T6th finish at The Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia, Pat Perez missed the cut at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois. An opening round 74 and second round 69 didn’t get it done and with the Tour heading overseas for The Open Championship, Perez will take this week off but will be back in action next week for the RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey in Ontario.

Stats-wise, after the missed cut Perez entered this week 72nd in the FedExCup standings. He was 66th last week after Greenbrier. PP is currently 71st on the Official Money List, down a few spots from 67th last week.

Some other stats of note. Perez is 121st in his Official World Golf Ranking, 88th in Driving Distance, 26th in greens in regulation percentage, 91st in Driving Accuracy Percentage, 64th in Proximity To Hole and 55th in Scoring Average.

Out of action this week, the numbers will drop a little, but could get a boost. Perez has missed a few cuts over the years in Ontario but finished T24th in 2009, T10th in 2007 and reeled in a T12th as a rookie in 2002.
