Pat Perez Nine-Under After Three At Glen Abbey

Pat Perez carded a third consecutive 69 at Glen Abbey on Saturday and sits at nine-under after three at the RBC Canadian Open in Ontario.

Perez opened with three pars before picking up the day’s lone bogey on the par-three fourth—knocking down a seven-footer for four after going right green side bunker and right rough on his first two shots. 

From there Perez settled in with five consecutive pars—his best look at birdie coming on the par-three seventh, where a 10-footer rolled long and wide, leaving a three-footer for three.

Plus-one at the turn, Perez immediately got one back with a birdie on the par-four tenth, rolling in a 28-footer to get back to even on the day. From there, back-to-back pars before Perez carded an eagle on the par-five thirteenth—holing out from the left fairway, 43 yards out. 

Perez parred four of the next five, but knocked down one final birdie on the par-five sixteenth.

After crushing his tee shot 335 yards to the right fairway and his second shot 175 yards to the left rough, Perez stuck his third shot to within five feet and tapped in for four. On No. 18, the day’s final par-five, an 11-foot birdie attempt rolled long and wide, leaving a three-foot comeback for par. 

Perez averaged 306 yards driving distance 42.86-percent in driving accuracy, was 66.67-percent in greens-in-regulation, 83.33-percent scrambling and 0.16 strokes gained putting.

As of 5:30 p.m. ET, Perez is currently T16, six strokes off the lead and looks to be paired with Matt Kuchar for Sunday’s final round at Glen Abbey.
