    Perez played college golf at Arizona State University where he was a member of the NCAA Championship winning team in 1996. He turned pro after graduating in 1997. He played on the various mini tours for a number of years before earning his Nationwide Tour card for the 2000 season. He duly captured his first win at the Ozarks Open and would narrowly miss out on securing his PGA Tour card for the following season after ending the year on place outside the card winners. He successfully came through Q School in 2001 and won his first ever PGA Tour car for 2002.

    He played 30 times in his rookie season, having an emphatic six top 10 finishes. Two of these top 10s were runner-up places, the first at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am where he shot a final round 76 to put paid to his chance of winning. He would then finish runner-up to Chris Smith at the Buick Classic. He would end his rookie year 40th on the money list.

    He would play solid but unspectacular golf for a number of years before capturing his first and only PGA Tour title to date in 2009. The win came at the five round Bob Hope Classic where an opening round of 61 helped Perez to a three shot victory. This was one of two top 10 finishes that season and he would end the year 49th on the money list. Since his win in 2009, Perez has had two close calls. He finished runner-up by a single stroke in 2011 at the Reno-Tahoe Open and at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open.
