Scottsdale, Ariz – Kenny Perry starts the FBR Open with a victory, beating Charley Hoffman with a 22-foot birdie putt on the third extra hole. According to Kenny, it was quite an experience playing amongst younger players but he verbalized his confidence in the FBR Open arena. He stated that it was in the FBR Open where he felt he could always win.kenny perry

The playoff was very ugly, according to Perry, stating that they were hitting the balls everywhere, and every player had to scramble all over the place in the process. Perry’s biggest competition in the playoff was player Charley Hoffman. He almost lost the chance to win the playoff but he birdied into a fairway bunker and had to settle for a bogey 5 instead. On the other hand, Hoffman also showed some difficulties playing on the course, when he too, drove into bunkers and settled for bogeys himself.

However, in the end, it was Kenny who won the game. He closed it with a 2-under 69 to match Hoffman’s 14-under 270. Hoffman later on said in an interview that they both gave each other opportunities, unfortunately for him, it was Kenny who closed the competition. This win gave Kenny Perry his 13th PGA Tour victory. Kenny Perry is a 48-year old American who won three times last year and also participated in the winning US Ryder Cup team. Falling in third place was Kevin Na at 13 under.
