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.
