THE OVERVIEW By Cameron Morfit, PGATOUR.COM Pat Perez is an overnight success story, 20 years in the making. That explanation makes as much sense as anything else when you delve into why Perez, 41, is just hitting his stride at an age when others start eyeing PGA TOUR Champions eligibility. “I'm such a different person than I was 17 years ago, even like five years ago,” Perez said after winning the CIMB Classic in Malaysia on Oct. 15, his second TOUR win in less than a year. “I'm learning how to play the game and learning how to play my own game and stay within myself and that kind of stuff. “I'm a late bloomer.” Perez seemed like a can’t-miss kid when he beat Tiger Woods by eight shots in winning the 1993 Junior World Championship at Torrey Pines. But something always got in the way, and today Perez would call that something immaturity. But the tipping point came when he underwent shoulder surgery in March of 2016. He lost his equipment contract, and when he got healthy and received a sponsor’s exemption into the no-cut CIMB Classic nearly eight months later, he was determined to prove the doubters wrong and make the most of his second chance. He did. Perez knocked the rust off at TPC Kuala Lumpur to start his 2017 season; finished T7 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas; and won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The rest is history. Newly eligible for all four majors, the World Golf Championships and the TOUR Championship, Perez did have one unchecked box on his to-do list last season: He failed to make the U.S. Presidents Cup team. Oh, well. There’s no sense in peaking too early. Now that he’s in full bloom, he should have plenty of other opportunities.

TOUR INSIDER by Ben Everill How can you not love the renaissance that is Pat Perez? Seemingly left for dead by fans and sponsors once a shoulder injury derailed him 18 months ago, Perez has pulled himself off the canvas with two wins inside a 12-month period. The OHL Classic win last fall kick-started it all but the CIMB Classic win this fall might have been even more impressive. Perez refuses to ride into the sunset quietly. He’s primed to teach the youngsters a few more lessons yet.

How apropos. The three-time PGA TOUR winner who happily beats to his own drum aligns exceptionally well with the counterculture that exists in fantasy sports. You want him on your team and you need him on your team. Best of all, he's shown no signs of slowing down.

Jim Herman didn't make a birdie Thursday at Torrey Pines' North Course. He's in contention at the Farmers Insurance Open, though. Herman made three eagles (on the par-5 first, ninth and 18th holes) and 15 pars in his first-round 66, which was two shots off Stewart Cink's first-round lead ( click here to see his card ). Herman tied the PGA TOUR record for lowest round without a birdie. Jeff Sluman had two eagles and 16 pars in a fourth-round 66 at the 1999 John Deere Classic. Herman was one short of the TOUR record for most eagles in a round. Scott McCarron and Willie Wood both made four eagles in a single round. McCarron made four eagles in his second-round 69 at Indian Wells Country Club at the 1995 Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. Wood also made four eagles in a third-round 71 at Cypress Point Club at the 1990 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Herman tees off at 9:50 a.m. local time on Torrey Pines' South Course. His 66 matched his low round of the season.
