Perry birdied three times Thursday, on the opening hole, 10 and 15.

He bogeyed four times, once right after his opening birdie then again on nine and then twice more on 11 and 17.

He is seven strokes off the lead heading into the second round.

WBKO's Brian Chojnacki caught up with Perry before he teed off.
