Oh Yeah, How Did Kenny Perry Do?
In all the hullabaloo this week with Greg Norman and Michelle Wie and Padraig Harrington, the fact that Kenny Perry played in the JV PGA Tour tournament was almost dismissed.
So, how did our Player of the Year candidate do at the Greater Milwaukee Open?
Pretty well actually.
Perry fired a final round 64 to jump in a tie for 6th and earn $125,000. If Perry had crossed the ocean for the Open, he would have had to finish in a tie for 7th place with nine other players to earn more than that.
I guess you could say it was a success for Perry. He earned another top-10, kept his momentum going and earned a few more Ryder Cup points. I'm sure a t-6 at the GMO isn't worth a private jet to Vegas, but it was something. All in all, pretty solid decision from Kenny.
