Born in Coulsdon, Surrey, Perry worked as a club professional at Leatherhead Golf Club in addition to playing in the few organised tournaments that there were at the time. He had moderate success before he claimed an unexpected victory in the 1935 Open Championship at Muirfield. His most prolific year came in 1938 when he won three tournaments on the British circuit. He retired from his post at Leatherhead in 1972, and died two years later.
