Perez T6th Entering Weekend At Torrey Pines

Pat Perez scrapped his way to a second round 71 at Torrey Pines and enters the weekend T6th at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego. Perez fired Thursday’s low round on the treacherous South Course, going five-under for a hard-earned 67.

Friday’s round opened with back-to-back birdies on the par-five first and par-four second, but the day would prove to be a battle.

After a tee shot on the par-four fourth went left, Perez took a drop and scrapped his way to a quality bogey. A hole later, a clutch birdie putt all but erased the previous hole’s set-back.

Another bogey followed on the par-three sixth, but Perez stayed composed and netted three straight pars and hit the turn one-under on the day.

The tenth resulted in another par, but Perez bogeyed the par-four eleventh and was back to even. Pars on twelve and thirteen were followed by another bogey on fourteen, putting Perez one-over on the day, but a strong finish ensued.

Back-to-back pars on fifteen and sixteen were followed by a clutch birdie putt on the par-three seventeenth and another on the par-five eighteenth, bringing Perez back to one-under for a second round 71.

The field is back on the South Course for the weekend and Perez goes off number one at 9:25 a.m. PT, paired with Russell Knox and Gary Woodland.
