World No. 16 Paul Casey tossed up a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in today's final round of the 81st Masters to reach 4-under 282, up five spots to solo 6th, one shy of 72-hole clubhouse leaders Matt Kuchar and Thomas Pieters.
After opening in 72-75-69, the 39-year-old began T11 on even-par, six back of overnight co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. He went out in blemish-free 4-under, circling back-to-backs at holes 2 and 3, and 8 and 9, but gave two back with bogey-5s at 11 and 14. The Englishman righted the ship to card two more birdies at 15 and 18, ending the day with six (of 14) fairways, 15 greens in regulation and 1.72 average putts per hole, including one 3-putt. This was his 11th Masters and fifth top 10, third consecutive, with a best of T4 last year. Casey's best in a now-53 major appearances is T3 at the 2010 Open Championship (St. Andrews).

World No. 16 Paul Casey bogeyed his final hole but otherwise fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Masters Tournament to post even-par 216, up six places on the live leaderboard to T13 and matching Jason Day and Brandt Snedeker for low rounds in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T11 while 54-hole co-leader Justin Rose shot the low round with 67.

This is the 39-year-old's 11th appearance with four top 10s, two consecutive in the last two editions, and a best of T4 last year (69-77-74-67). He arrived 25th in the FedExCup standings, 10-for-11 on the season with six top 25s, two for top 10s with a best of T3 at the Safeway Open back in October. After opening in 72-75, the Englishman began T19 on 3-over, seven back of four co-leaders, and striped 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation. He circled No. 7 (from 13 feet) and then three straight at 12-14, the former two from between six and eight feet and a 25-footer for birdie-3 at 14. Casey's walk-off 5 at the 18th started with an errant tee shot and a layup, and then 3-putted from 63 feet.

Paul Casey took down Charl Schwartzel 4-and-3 in their Group 12 winner-takes-all showdown in round three of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas, moving into the Round of 16 with a 3-0-0 record.

Both men had won their opening two games at Austin CC and after six holes today they still couldn't be split. Schwartzel won the opener with an 8'9" birdie putt and, after losing 4 and 5 with a bogey and concession, levelled the contest again with a birdie-4 at the 6th. However, Casey took control of the match from that point, winning the 7th with a 10'3" birdie and taking the 8th with par. The duo traded pars at 9 and 10 and halved 11 with birdie-2s before another Casey red number at 12 put him 3-up. The Englishman birdied 14 from 13'4" to move to the brink and sealed his spot in Saturday's knockout phase with a par at 15. Casey was runner-up in this event in both 2009 and 2010 as well as reaching the quarter-finals in 2015 so he'll be a dangerous opponent for anyone. Next up is Hideto Tanihara.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 15 Paul Casey handed in an even-par 35-37=72 after today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a 36-hole total of 4-under 140, down two spots to T5 with play still in progress.

The 39-year-old found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.679 strokes around-the-green and -0.075 on the greens at last glance. He circled four birdies at Nos. 11, 4 (from 16'10"), 6 and a walk-off at the par-4 ninth from 14'4", but cancelled them with bogey-5s at holes 3 and 8 and a 1-putt double bogey-6 at 18. The Englishman posted a pedestrian 1.833 putts per GIR and had 28 total putts.

Paul Casey caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 4-under-par 36-32=68 to open his week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, currently one stroke off the early pace.

The Englishman was steady in his approach play, finding 15 greens in regulation. Two of those misses were very costly, finding water at the par-4 eighth (double bogey) and then again at the par-5 16th (salvaged par). On holes where he wasn't rinsing his approach shots, Casey was dropping putts left and right. On the round, he drained five putts from outside 12 feet, including a 31'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 15th. The Englishman walked off the course gaining 3.217 strokes putting on the round. In six previous API appearances, Casey has a pair of top 15s on his resume.
Mar 16 - 6:10 PM

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship to finish up on 6-under 278, up 18 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 and tying the low round of the day thus far with Francesco Molinari. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey finished T16 while Ross Fisher and Brandt Snedeker posted the low rounds with 65s.

This was the 39-year-old's 12th appearance and likely seventh top 25. His best is T6 in 2010 (TPC Blue Monster). Overall, it was the Englishman's 41st WGC event with a pair of runners-up in 2009 and 2010 in the Match Play versions. His best in stroke play is T4 at the 2011 HSBC Champions and 2006 Bridgestone. After kicking off in 74-71-67, he kept the progressively better trend going with five birdies and an eagle-3 overshadowing two bogeys for 66. For the week, Casey carded one eagle and 15 birdies against 11 bogeys and is currently 5th in SG: Approaching-the-Green (cumulative 6.448) but 64th in SG: Around-the-Green (-1.607).
Mar 5 - 3:55 PM

World No. 16 Paul Casey orchestrated an even-par 36-34=70 in today's final round of The Honda Classic to post 5-under 275, up eight places to T12 with play still in progress.

After opening in 68-70-67, the 39-year-old began on 5-under (T20), eight back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler but just one adrift of 19 players in the overnight top 10. He circled two birdies at Nos. 10 and 15, from 20'9" and 6'7", respectively, cancelling them with bogeys at 2 and a walk-off 6 after hitting his second to the par 5 into the water. The Englishman found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.666 strokes tee-to-green, the current leader in the latter with a cumulative 12.603. He was 70th (last) however, in putts per GIR at 1.917 and 69th in SG: Putting at -5.288. This was his eighth appearance and will be a fourth top 25, possibly a third top 10, joining T4/2010 and T3/2015.
Feb 26 - 4:52 PM

World No. 16 and new TaylorMade athlete Paul Casey authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 on Moving Day at the Farmers Insurance Open to reach the three-quarter mark on 6-under 210, up 23 places on the live leaderboard to T12 and the ONLY blemish-free lap of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, 54-hole co-leader Patrick Rodgers shot a bogey-free 67.

The 39-year-old has one cash here in three prior appearances (T22/2002), missing his last two cuts in 2015 and 2016. He began this week with 3-under 69 (North Course) and labored to a one-birdie two-bogey 73 in R2 (South Course). The Englishman striped 11 (of 14) fairways and mustered only 10 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.900 putts per GIR but 1.332 SG: Putting. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he opened his scoring with birdie-3 at 17 (from 14'4"), chased with eagle-3 at 18 (17'3"), and concluded his scoring with an 22-footer from the fringe for birdie-2 at eight.
Jan 28 - 5:00 PM

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.

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.
