Perry bounced back and completed a four-under-par 66 with three birdies on his final four holes, including a 22-foot birdie putt on 17 that pulled him even after Allan bogeyed the same hole.
It was the third win of the season for Perry, who was playing his first tournament since his sensational three-start run that included consecutive wins at the Colonial and Memorial and a tie for third at the US Open.
The victory by Perry marked the sixth time in the last eight years that the winner of the Milwaukee Open was 40 or older.
