"I lost the tournament yesterday on the last five holes. That's what killed me," Perry said. "I missed about a 4-footer on 17 for birdie and I three-putted 14 and missed about a 2 1/2-footer. You just can't do stuff like that. That's OK. You've got to start somewhere. You've got to take baby steps."
"I've hit more balls in the past two weeks than I've hit in two years combined," Perry said. "I quit practicing, I quit working at it, and I got tired of playing bad so I kind of, I stepped up, started hitting a lot of balls and seeing if it would help. I still hit some pretty poor shots, but my stamina was better, I didn't run out of gas too fast."
