Pat Perez recovered from surgery with “a lot of booze”

Pat Perez has always been an interesting character, round peg-in-a-square-hole type.

But don’t worry! He’s still as conservative as Bob Estes. Consider this deleted tweet from just after President Obama’s reelection in 2012.


Yes! While ‘your’ at it, indeed!

Anyway, Double P had surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder in March of 2016. At one point during the course of his recovery at home in Arizona, where he has a portrait of himself in vintage military regalia over his dining room table (no joke), Perez didn’t leave the couch for a month as he tried to keep his shoulder immobile. Interesting, as Perez has something of the look of a man who doesn’t leave his couch for months at a time.

In the course of his time in the wilderness, or on the couch, as the case may be, Perez got a surprise invite to the CIMB Classic last October and hit the ground running. He parlayed a string of strong showings into a win at the OHL Classic, punching his ticket for this week’s winners-only tournament at Kapalua.

Asked how he made it through the recovery, rehabilitation, and time away from golf, he offered this classic Perezian reply:

“A lot of booze. A lot of food. A lot of everything.”

Never change, PP, and never stop producing these slow-mo swing videos set to classic rock and metal tracks.

And of course:
