Perry tells Golf Magazine's Jessica Marksbury
"(The pivotal moment) was the tee shot on 17. All week, my goal was to be conservatively aggressive, only going for the pins that I thought I could get at. And I was putting beautifully. All of a sudden, I hit it to within an inch on 16 on Sunday. I tap it in for birdie, I look over at the leaderboard, and I'm like, "Oh man, I've got a two-shot lead." And I went from being conservatively aggressive to conservative ... My body froze up, my mind froze up, and instead of swinging at the ball, I started steering the ball. My thought was, "All you gotta do is make two pars to win the Masters."
