Video: Kenny Perry, the Performance of the Day

Kenny Perry fired a 6-under 64 on Friday to take a share of the 36-hole lead at the U.S. Senior Open with Kirk Triplett (67).

 
A 64 is really, really good golf in a USGA championship, but it’s even more impressive when you factor in that he was 2-over after four holes (bogey-bogey-par-par).

Over the next 14 holes, the 56 year-old Kentucky native went bogey-free with eight (count ’em, eight!) birdies, including four over the closing five holes on the front-nine.

“I guess I was too anxious, too amped up. I was thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m not going to break 80 today,’” said Perry, a 14-time winner on the PGA Tour.

For his performance, the USGA named Perry its ‘Performance of the Day.’

Perry will be paired with co-leader Triplett in Saturday’s final pairing at Salem Country Club. The co-leaders tee off at 1:50 PM. FOX has coverage starting at 1 PM.
