Perez: 65-68 & T5th Going Into Weekend

Pat Perez rocked the Marty McFly-style sleeveless vest for an early-round tee time on Friday, but the frigid desert temperatures didn’t cool off the ultra-hot play.

On the heels of a T2nd place finish at Torrey Pines last Sunday, Perez enters this weekend T5th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

Coming off a blazing opening-round 65, Perez followed up with a 68 on Friday and is again in good position with Saturday on the horizon.

Perez had a rough start, with bogeys on the par-four tenth and par-three twelfth, before settling in with back-to-back pars. From there, a birdie-barrage as Perez picked up four of five on #15, #17, #18 and #1.

After a par on #2, Perez birdied the par-five third and went par-bogey-birdie over the next three. He closed the day with three straight pars, shooting three-under on the day.

On Thursday, a one-over round seven holes in before an onslaught of birdies—five straight and seven of nine—en route to an opening round 65.

Saturday’s tee time is 10:50 a.m. PT and Perez is paired with Hideki Matsuyama and Harris English. The group will go off of #1 at TPC Scottsdale.
