LIV golfer Pat Perez mourns death of younger brother: ‘Saddest day of my life’


LIV golfer Pat Perez was mourning the loss of his younger brother Mike on Monday in a heartbreaking post on Instagram.

Mike, 43, spent most of his life as a golf professional and teacher. He also competed on the Korn Ferry Tour and made one PGA appearance at the Children's Miracle Network Classic in 2010.

Perez did not say in the post how his brother passed away.

"This is the saddest day of my life. My little brother Mikey has passed," Perez wrote. "I don't know what to say as I thought this day would never come. We had so much fun together growing up and he was always in my corner. We did everything together.


He wanted nothing but my happiness and was so proud of me. He was the life of the party. 

"Everyone that knew him loved him and he was always happy and upbeat. It's hard to believe that I won't be able to call him anymore and we won't be able to spend time with each other. He was such a big part of my life and losing him is beyond devastating. I'm really at a loss for words.

"Gonna be a long life without him in it. I Love you little brother. I hope we get to see each other again one day and I hope you find your peace.



Pat Perez has been a part of LIV Golf since 2022 and recorded his first win in the PGA Tour in 2009 at the Bob Hope Classic.

His highest ranking came in 2018 when he was 16th in the world. 

Perez plays for the 4Aces team in LIV Golf, which is captained by Dustin Johnson.

Patrick Reed and Peter Uihlein are also part of the team.

Uihlein expressed his condolences in a comment on the Instagram post. 

"Thoughts and prayers to you and your family," he wrote.
