Kenny Perry wins ACE Group Classic in an impressive style
Kenny Perry knew the only way to hold his head high at TwinEagles was to produce a flawless performance. He did so by holding his nerve on the final day of the ACE Group Classic.
Thanks to the lead he gained in the preceding rounds, American Perry was confident to do what he planned to in the last round.
Although he carded a 70, which was not so impressive compared to other player’s scores, he still maintained a considerable lead over his nearest rivals.
He appeared to be in trouble on some holes, but most of the day, the game seemed to be in his full control. He played confident strokes that made sure that his position was strong on the leaderbaord.
He kicked off the second last day by coming off well. He played in the comfortable winds and made the most of his early lead.
The spectators at TwinEagles were taken aback when Perry shot two straight birdies on the par-4 1st and the difficult par-3 2nd hole, strengthening his standing on the leaderboard.  
He parred the 3rd and went into action yet again on the par-5 6th. Other players also forged ahead, struggling to make their way up to the top of the scoreboard.
Thanks to 5 birdies on the front nine, Perry offset his lapses on some holes. His putting looked better than before, as he did intense training on the practice range before entering TwinEagles.
On the back nine, he picked up his pace and drained 6 birdies. However, one bogey dragged him back to the same score as the front nine, i.e. 31.
Carding a 10-under 62 in round 2 proved beneficial for the American star.
The last round saw Perry make some mistakes. He appeared to lose momentum on some holes, misjudging putts.  
He made extra efforts to score better, as he launched his first birdie of the round on the par-5 3rd.
"I really wanted that [final] putt. I really wanted to shoot 20 under. I didn't want to fall back to 19 like I did at Colonial one year. I had a seven-stroke lead coming in and I doubled and I went from 21 to 19,” Perry said.
