Pat Perez withdraws from 2017 Waste Management Phoenix Open as precaution


Pat Perez withdrew from the 2017 Waste Management Phoenix Open on Thursday, sparking concerns of an injury, perhaps of a relapse related to the surgically-repaired labrum that kept him out for most of 2016.

According to Perez's wife Ashley, Pat's shoulder tightened up, so he withdrew as a precaution at the risk of pushing the shoulder too far. After consulting with the PGA Tour's medical staff, he got confirmation that the shoulder area was inflamed at the bicep muscle but that there was no other medical issue.

Perez, who won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November and finished T-3 in the SBS Tournament of Champions, plans to be in the field next week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
