CIMB Classic: Perez leaves no doubt in Malaysia

Pat Perez never let his foot off the gas as he claimed his third PGA Tour title on Sunday.

Perez went off in the 33/40-1 range depending on the book and led the rest of the way after taking a one-shot lead following the second round.

Xander Schauffele cashed a top five for us at +500 on a 1.5 unit play. His third place finish was our second in as many weeks to open the 2017-18 campaign.

Unfortunately, that was the only ticket that cashed on the week. Rafael Cabrera Bello got within a couple shots of a top five before sliding back over the last five holes. Meanwhile, Jazz Janewattananond couldn’t get in the top 10 after a back nine collapse.

Overall, the Schauffele top five keeps us treading water, bringing back 7.5 units to cancel out the losses of our other futures and props.

We’ve been close on to a winner the first two weeks of the season, getting in the final group, and I’ll be back next week when the PGA Tour debuts the CJ Cup in South Korea.
