Perez & Lund Gear Up For The Dunhill

Pat Perez is back in action this week—heading across the pond for a rare European Tour event; The Dunhill. Perez played the event back in 2012 and made the trek to Scotland with AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am partner Michael Lund.

Perez and Lund brought home the 2015 pro-am title back in February and will look to make some history as a duo at the Dunhill, as well. Perez finished T66 three years back, going 72-70-69-73 over four rounds.

Tee times have been announced. Perez and Lund will play Carnoustie on Thursday, going off of No. 1 at 9:55 a.m. local time. They will be paired with Andrew Chandler and European Tour pro Matthew Fitzpatrick

Friday’s tee time is 9:00 a.m. local at Kingsbarn, where the duo will go off of No. 10 with Ric Kayne and fellow PGA Tour pro (and friend), Erik Compton.

Saturday brings Perez and Lund to the old course at St. Andrews, where they’ll start on No. 1 at 9:00 a.m. with Matthew Goode and European Tour pro Thomas Bjørn. Sunday’s final round will also take place at St. Andrews, barring Perez and Lund make the cut. 

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship began back in 2001. Somewhat modeled after the long-running Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the 54-hole cut is made of the top 60 professionals and leading 20 pro-am teams.

The star-power aspect of The Dunhill is also in line with Pebble, as big name celebrities, personalities and professional athletes have participated over the past decade-plus.
Regarding the three storied courses, all are a par 72 with St. Andrews measuring 7,307 yards, Carnoustie measuring 7,412 yards and Kingsbarn measuring 7,150 yards.
