The bad news? In the last decade, Perez has played this tournament exactly twice — and missed the cut each time. The good news? His last made cut just happened to be 2007, the last time this event was held at Carnoustie, when he finished T-20. Granted, that was a long time ago, and yes, he’s a much different player in many different ways, but that result alone should at least offer a few good vibes as Perez returns to a site where he’s owned a modicum of success.
