Opening Round 71 For Perez At Bay Hill

Pat Perez fired an opening round 71 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on Thursday. Perez opened with five straight pars before recording back-to-back birdies on six and seven. After giving a shot back on the par-four eighth, Perez parred nine and was one-under at the turn.

A par on ten was followed by a birdie on the par four eleventh, where Perez dropped an 8’1″ putt in for a three. Back-to-back pars ensued on twelve and thirteen before giving a stroke back after a bogey on the par-three fourteenth.

Perez parred fifteen but took advantage of another par five, set up by a monster 311-yard drive and 193-foot second shot, putting him on the green with a good look at a three. Perez left a potential eagle putt just over a foot short, but quickly dropped it in for birdie.

A par on seventeen was followed by a bogey on eighteen, ending the day at one-under.

Friday’s round is set for 12:10pm ET at Bay Hill. Follow the live leaderboard and PP’s scorecard.
