Perez Wraps Deutsche Bank Three-Under; T29

Pat Perez fired a final round 69 at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, wrapping the second FedExCup Playoffs event three-under and T29. 

Perez is expected to climb from 46th to 43rd in the new rankings and after an off week will be back in action for the BMW Championship at Conway Farms, along with the rest of the Top 70. 

Monday’s final round had Perez saving his best for last; and save for an untimely double bogey on the par-four sixth, it was a near-flawless round. 

Perez was two-under after four, with birdies on the par-five second and par-four fourth.

After hitting his tee shot 306 yards to the left fairway, his second shot 235 yards to the green and rolling a would-be 29-foot eagle putt to within two feet, Perez tapped in on No. 2 and was one-under on the day. 

On the par-four fourth, a 287-yard tee shot to the left green side bunker was followed up with a brilliant 44-foot punch out, setting up a 15″ birdie putt.  

The double on the par-four sixth was the result of a 165-yard second shot to the native area, where Perez found the left fairway and needed to hole out from 61 feet for par. Instead he got on the green, left himself a seven-footer that ran long and wide and eventually tapped in from 10″ for six.

Perez immediately bounced back with a birdie on the par-five seventh, crushing his tee shot 315 yards to the left fairway, his second shot 276 yards to the green and rolling an 28-foot eagle attempt to within two feet, setting up the tap-in for four. 

One-under through seven, Perez parred the next six holes—his best look at birdie, a 14-footer on the par-four tenth—before a bogey on the par-four fourteenth; Perez’s third shot coming out of the rough and leaving a 12-footer for par that rolled long and wide before he knocked down the two footer for five. 

From there, two consecutive pars were followed by back-to-back birdies, getting him to two-under on the day and three-under on the week. 

Perez hit his tee shot 255 yards to the left fairway and his second shot 145 yards to the green on the par-four seventeenth, setting up a ten-footer for three, which he rolled in.

On the week’s 72nd hole, Perez smashed his tee shot 322 yards to the left fairway, his second shot 203 yards to the green and rolled his third shot 29 feet, where an attempt at eagle came up two inches short. 

Perez averaged 298 yards driving distance, was 78.57-percent in driving accuracy, 77.78-percent in greens-in-regulation, 50.00 in scrambling and -1.63 in strokes gained putting.
