While many of the game’s top players tend to hem and haw about whether or not they plan to tee it up on the senior circuit once they turn 50, there’s at least one player who can’t wait to join: Pat Perez.
The always entertaining Tour veteran is in the midst of his 21st season competing on the PGA Tour, and on this week’s episode of Subpar, the 46-year-old explained the source of his enthusiasm for the PGA Tour Champions to hosts Colt Knost and Drew Stoltz.
“Think about our sport. We have such an amazing deal,” Perez said. “This goes back to what the PGA Tour’s done to help all of us players. We have this retirement thing at 50 years old that no other sport has, where you go, hey, if you want to go play, we’re gonna give you a cart. And if you win, you’re gonna make 300 to 400 grand this week. There’s no cut! Three days, a couple pro-ams, member tee times, you know? Ten to 12. It’s incredible what the PGA Tour has done for us.
