Pat Perez Fires 66 To Make Big Move at THE PLAYERS

Pat Perez fired a 6-under 66 on Saturday to move up 56 spots on the leaderboard at the PLAYERS Championship.

The Arizona State alum started the day at 2-over, but following his sizzling Saturday round, he’s now at 4-under and inside the top-10, heading into Sunday’s final round.

The 41-year-old Perez is in the midst of a career year following a forgettable injury-shortened 2016 season.

Perez got his second PGA Tour career win early in the season at Mayakoba, and has produced four other top-10s (T2, T3, T4, T7), and four additional top-20s (T14, T17, T17, T18).

He currently ranks 5th in the FedEx Cup and Money race.
