The Outlook

Perez comes into the PGA Championship with a Recent Adjusted Round Score that ranks 110th in the field. Most of that was an atrocious showing a couple weeks ago at the European Open, which obviously doesn’t have a field nearly as strong as what he’ll see this week.

Further, I’m targeting players who can win with their drivers this week and take advantage of some of the long par 4s, and Perez is one of the shorter guys in the field. It’s a bad fit.
