Paul Casey overcame a sloppy beginning to card 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC.
Statistically the Arizona State grad was only marginally down on his first round effort: he found 10 of 14 fairways rather than 11, 14 greens in regulation instead of 15, and his Putts per GIR number was up to 1.714 from 1.667, but in the numbers that really matter it translated to a 70 instead of a 67. But his 36-hole total of 7-under 137 is still good enough for T7, six off the lead. He had opened with bogeys at 1 and 3, but responded with red numbers at 2, 5 and 8, dropping a putt from 18'0" on the fifth. On his journey back to the clubhouse he made bogey at 15, with birdies at 14 and 18. Oct 28 - 4:22 AM

The Paul Casey train rumbled on as he carded a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at Sheshan International GC in the first round of the WGC-HSBC Champions.

The 39-year-old Englishman has six finishes of T11 or better on this course and has logged T4 or better in four of his last five starts so it was no surprise to see yet more superb golf from him. He opened his account on the back nine and did so with a birdie-bogey brace at 10 and 11 before posting the highlight of his day at the 563-yard par-5 14th hole - an eagle-3 converted from 18'0" with his putter from the fringe. He added a birdie-4 at 18 to make the most of the long holes on the back nine. He couldn't do anything with the front nine par-5s but did tick 3 and 4 for a round which left him T6 on the live leaderboard. He landed 11 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation.

Paul Casey finished like a train at TPC Kuala Lumpur to post 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the first round of the CIMB Classic, one shot adrift of the early lead.

The Arizona State University product is in the midst of a sensational run right now, having finished top four in each of his last four starts: But above that, and including Thursday, he has never in that stretch been worse than T7 at the conclusion of any round. It was a record that looked under threat when his first move was backwards: A bogey-6 at the 503-yard par-5 third. But he righted the ship on the front nine with par breakers at 5, 7 and 9. Two more at 11 and 14 brought the leaders in sight and he closed the birdie blitz in style with a hat-trick at 16, 17 and 18 to end the day one back alone in 4th. The long game was a good fit in the opening tour as he found 15 of 18 greens in regulation. The 39-year-old was a two-time winner in China on the European Tour in 2005 so is no stranger to lifting trophies in Asia.

Paul Casey rallied for a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the final round of the Safeway Open to conclude his second appearance on 16-under 272, up one spot into a four-way T3, two adrift of champion Brendan Steele.

The 39-year-old was chasing his second TOUR title in his 197th career start, but departs with a personal best at the Safeway, eclipsing a T7 in 2011, and his fourth straight top-5 finish on TOUR (2-2-4-T3). He's a cumulative 58-under-par over those last four starts with 15 of the 16 rounds at par or better. The Englishman began the final frame in a two-way T4 on 13-under, two shy of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire. He got off to a sluggish start, making the turn in 1-over after sandwiching a birdie-3 at the eighth with bogeys on 7 and 9, missing a pair of five-foot par-savers. Casey rebounded to play his inward half in bogey-free 4-under, circling 11, 12 (hole-out from greenside bunker), 15 and 17, but with preferred lies in effect, mustered just 11 greens in regulation and failed to birdie either of the par 5s (holes 16 and 18) coming in.

Paul Casey patched together a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the two-day third round of the Safeway Open for a 54-hole total of 13-under 203, down two places into a two-way T4, two adrift of leader Patton Kizzire.

The 39-year-old began the third round (Saturday) in a two-way T2 on 12-under, three back of 36-hole leader Scott Piercy. He was 1-under thru 15 holes, outpacing a double bogey-7 at five with birdies on Nos. 2, 8 and 10 (from 20'4") when play was abandoned due to heavy rain. The ASU product returned on Sunday morning to card routine pars on his three final holes. He digressed to seven (of 14) fairways but improved to 14 greens in regulation, barely registering a 0.043 in SG: Total, and will be chasing his second TOUR title in his 197th career start. Casey's lone win came at the 2009 Shell Houston Open where he was a 54-hole co-leader and won in a playoff.

Paul Casey tacked on a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the two-day second round of the Safeway Open to post 12-under 132, three strokes shy of 36-hole leader Scott Piercy.

The top-ranked player in the field at No. 12 in the Official World Golf Ranking chased his bogey-free 64 with a six-birdie two-bogey effort in round 2. Along with 71 others, he returned on Saturday morning to complete the lap, getting 12 holes in on Friday before play was suspended due to darkness. Prior to the stoppage, the Englishman outpaced bogey-5s at holes 6 and 8 (failed scrambles) with birdies on 4, 5, 9, 10 and 12 (37'3"). He carded five pars on Saturday and added a sixth birdie at the par-5 16th (4'2") to complete his scoring. Casey mustered just 11 greens in regulation and lost 1.741 strokes approaching-the-green, but split 11 (of 14) fairways and made the most of his chances with a stellar 1.455 putts per GIR.

Paul Casey stormed the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the Safeway Open,

Arriving on the heels of three straight top 5s, Casey continued his great play in round one. He opened on the back nine and circled four birdies before making the turn. Three of them came on putts from the 14-to-17 foot range. The Englishman added a 15'9" birdie hole out from the fringe at the par-3 second before closing the round with a three-hole birdie train. Casey's biggest asset was his iron play today, as he walked off the course gaining 3.624 strokes approaching-the-green. The 39-year-old is still stuck on one career PGA TOUR win but that might not last much longer if he continues playing like he has been over the past month.

5-seed Paul Casey painted a week-tying-low 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of the TOUR Championship to round off his third appearance on 9-under 271, up three places to solo fourth, three shots out of a three-man playoff involving Rory McIlroy, Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell.

The 39-year-old matches his best at East Lake (T4/2010) and records his third straight top-5 finish, joining runners-up at the Deutsche Bank and BMW Championships. He entered the week 5th in the FedExCup standings and stayed there, clipping his previous-best of 6th-place back in 2010. The Englishman began the finale in a two-way T7 on 3-under, five back of 54-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell. He squared a lone bogey-4 at the 16th, but camouflaged it with seven birdies on 13 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.462 putts per GIR. For the week, Casey tallied one eagle and 15 birdies against six bogeys and one double. His 64 is a season low in 74 rounds, brushing aside 66 five times.

5-seed Paul Casey conjured up a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the three-quarter mark on 3-under 207, down two spots to T7.

The 39-year-old began the third frame in a three-way T5 on 2-under, five adrift of Johnson, and following a three-birdie two-bogey effort, is still five back of 54-hole co-leaders Johnson and Kevin Chappell. He squared bogey-5s at Nos. 1 and 14, both on failed scrambles, but did save a '5' on 14 from 9'4". The Englishman circled holes 6, 10 and 18, each from inside of 13 feet. He mustered a week-low five (of 14) fairways but managed to hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.769 putts per GIR.
Sep 24 - 5:40 PM

Paul Casey painted an even-par 35-35=70 during round two of the TOUR Championship, reaching 2-under 138 for the week, good for T3 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

The Englishman landed 15 greens in regulation but couldn't find much success with the flat stick today. The highlights were a 12'1" par-saver at the par-3 15th and a 12'5" birdie splash at the par-5 18th. They were the only two putts converted from outside 4'5" on the day. He walked off the course losing 1.205 strokes putting on the round. Casey currently ranks third in the field in strokes gained approach-the-green, which should help him remain in contention over the weekend, but he'll need the putter to pick up some slack.
Sep 23 - 5:17 PM

Paul Casey pieced together a 2-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of the TOUR Championship, placing him inside the top 10 as play winds down on day one.

The Englishman arrived on the heels of back-to-back runner-ups and continued that strong play today through great iron play. He landed an average amount of greens (13) but gained 2.175 strokes approaching-the-green which tells a better story for his tee-to-green play. With a pair of top 5s in two previous trips to East Lake Golf Club, Casey remains one of the favorites to take home the FedExCup trophy this week.
Sep 22 - 5:32 PM

Paul Casey styled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the BMW Championship to post 20-under 268, good for solo second, three shots shy of overnight leader and champion Dustin Johnson.

The 39-year-old records his second straight runner-up finish, this time as a chaser. He was the 54-hole leader last week at the Deutsche Bank before closing in 2-over 73. It's also the second time that the Englishman has finished runner-up to Johnson at this event, dating to the 2010 edition at Cog Hill G&CC. He began the finale in solo second, three shy of Johnson, and gave it a great run, camouflaging a lone bogey at the par-4 10th with birdies on Nos. 2, 3, 9 and 12, concluding his scoring with a 24-footer for eagle-3 at the 15th. Unfortunately, Johnson dropped his own eagle at the 15th right on top of him, essentially sealing the victory. After jumping 49 spots to 10th in the FedExCup standings with last week's finish, he bumps another five to a coveted fifth-place ranking. It's Casey's seventh career runner-up in 195 events and sixth top 10 of the season in 21 starts.
Sep 11 - 6:42 PM

Paul Casey enjoyed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the BMW Championship to post 15-under 201, up one spot to solo second.

The 39-year-old held a 3-shot lead thru 54 holes last week at TPC Boston before a 2-over 73 left him runner-up to Rory McIlroy. This week, he'll enter the finale as the chaser, three shy of playing competitor Dustin Johnson, who shot 68. When Johnson won the 2010 BMW (Cog Hill), Casey was runner-up, so there's all types of storylines developing. The Englishman posted his second straight blemish-free lap at Crooked Stick and is bogey-free over his last 41 holes. His lone bogey was at the par-3 13th in R1, leading the field in that stat. Casey gained 3.429 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.459 tee-to-green, No. 1 in the latter as well. He circled four birdies on 14 greens in regulation, each from inside of nine feet, for 1.857 putts per GIR and -0.849 SG: Putting.
Sep 10 - 8:21 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Paul Casey twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the BMW Championship to reach 11-under 133, three shy of 36-hole co-leaders Roberto Castro and Dustin Johnson.

With threesomes off both sets of tees for Saturday's third round, Casey, solo third, will be in the final group on Saturday for a second straight week. Before he could get his second lap into the books on Friday, he first had to complete eight holes leftover from R1, which he did in 1-under (two birdies, one bogey). The 39-year-old, runner-up last week and runner-up at the 2010 BMW (Cog Hill G&CC), split 11 (of 14) fairways in R2 and landed 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.438 SG: Off-the-Tee contributing to 1.870 SG: Tee-to-Green. He circled six birdies for 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.159 SG: Putting. Four of his conversions traveled greater than six feet, adding a 17-footer for birdie-3 at the first and wrapping with a 23-footer for birdie at the par-4 seventh.
Sep 9 - 6:24 PM

Paul Casey concocted a 5-under-par 32-35=67 during the weather-delayed opening round of the BMW Championship, currently two strokes off the leader Roberto Castro.

After a near-miss at last week's Deutsche Bank, the Englishman is right back in the mix. He missed just one fairway in round one on his way toward 12 greens in regulation. As good as his off-the-tee play was, his putter was just as useful. Highlights include a 19'5" birdie splash at the par-4 seventh and a 26-footer for eagle at the par-5 ninth. Casey opted not to become eligible for the European Ryder Cup squad this year, so perhaps its the lack of upcoming pressure that is freeing up his golf game at just the right time. Entering the week at 10th in the FedExCup race, he's a serious contender for the FedExCup crown.
