Perez Looking for Second Win


The Buy.Com Tour heads into Missouri and the Highland Springs Country Club this week for the $450,000 Buy.Com Ozarks Open.
Pat Perez returns as this years defending champion. The 25-year-old Arizona State graduate took last years edition with a par on the first hole of a playoff after having finished tied with Pat Bates and Mike Heinen.
Perez is in his second season on the tour this year, and so far he has performed well. While he has not won again to this point, he has recorded four top-10 finishes in ten events.
He will need to beat out a good field this week if he is to make it two-in-a-row.
Last weeks winner of the Buy.Com Siouxland Open Pat Bates is scheduled to play, as is Jason Dufner, who won two weeks ago.
Likewise, the Pappas brothers ' Deane and Brenden ' will be competing, as will Jonathan Byrd and Fran Quinn.
The Highland Springs course is a par-72 layout that plays to 7,060 yards.
This years winning purse has been increased some $4,500 to an even $81,000.
