What's In My Bag? Pat Perez

May 2009
Finally

It was a relief to win. You start to wonder, Hey, am I ever going to get this done? You know you have the game. When I finally won, I told my caddie, "It's over." Any time we get in that situation now, I won't have that pressure. It was relief, excitement and everything I thought it would be.

I wanted to show people, whether I'm playing with celebrities, down at El Dorado Golf & Beach Club in Los Cabos or backstage at a concert with buddies, that I might be someone different from what people think. The website has kind of changed my image.

critical thinking

It's a tough world. It'll kick you in the ass. You can tough it out, or you can be weak and let it get you down. I didn't have a lot of money growing up and have worked for everything I have. Maybe that has taught me more because I appreciate what I have. It's made me stronger. There are millions of people who play golf who'll never win a tournament on the PGA Tour. I'm going to enjoy this because I've earned it.

wine spectator

I've learned a lot about wine from friends. One of the best I've had is a 1993 Shafer Hillside Select, but my favorite is Cain Five.

simple solution

I like this divot tool I got at the Madison Club in La Quinta, Calif. I worked on my swing there with my coach, Mike Abbott.
