Perez On A Tear At The Memorial

Pat Perez is back in action this week after a W/D at last week’s Crown Plaza Invitational at Colonial event due to a strained shoulder / chest muscle. Perez had played four straight, with a T32nd at the Wells Fargo Championship and T77th at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, but missing the cut at The PLAYERS and withdrawing at Colonial.

Having played his way into this week’s event at the Memorial, Perez is making the most of the opportunity. An opening round 72 was followed by a second round 69 on Friday, putting him in the top ten entering Saturday’s round.

On onslaught of birdies in the first two rounds – nine total – were somewhat negated by some tough holes as Perez picked up four bogeys, and a double on the par-five fifth in round one.

Round two was a great bounce-back for Perez, opening with two pars, birdying the next two, but giving them back on fourteen and eighteen, returning him to even at the turn. On the front nine, a great stretch for Perez where he picked up three birdies, six pars and no bogeys. It was similar to Thursday’s back nine where Perez was plus-three at the turn, but birdied ten, eleven and fifteen, getting back to even on the day.

Tune in all weekend to see how things wrap up in Dublin, Ohio.
