Paul Casey has finished inside the top 15 in each of his past two trips to Ridgewood Country Club and returns this week for his third shot at The Barclays.
Casey did what he needed to do at the Wyndham Championship when the pressure was on. He entered last week ranked 125th in the FedExCup standings, but catapulted himself up to 118th with a nice T18 finish. The Englishman has only played in two Barclays, but they were both hosted by Ridgewood CC, the same site of this week's edition. With results of T12 and T7 to his name at the venue, Casey should be appearing on the radar for many gamers this week. Aug 19 - 9:29 AM

Paul Casey backed up his opening 65 at the Wyndham Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round to establish the very early clubhouse lead at 6-under 134.

Casey went off in the first threesome off the 10th tee and promptly bogeyed the par-4 10th hole after finding trouble well left of the fairway. He then doubled the par-4 11th after needing to take a drop due to an issue off the tee, again left of the fairway. However, he rebounded with five birdies again just one more bogey the rest of the way. His most notable conversion occurred at the par-4 eighth where his approach landed short of the green. From 12 yards away, the Brit calmly holed it for what was his final birdie of the round. He's not going to hold the overnight lead, and may not even sit inside the top 10 at the end of the day, but he's done exactly what he needed. Casey started the week at 125th in the FedExCup standings.

Paul Casey cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Casey is all set with fully exempt status via earnings in 2014-15 (he's currently 114th), but he's 125th in the FedExCup standings, so he's not guaranteed to return to the Playoffs for the first time since 2010. Of course, three more days like this and he could be one to watch beginning next week. The Englishman split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Sedgefield Country Club today. He poured in five birdies, the most notable from 12'6" at the par-4 17th hole. His longest par save measured 12'4" at the par-3 12th where he missed the green pin-high on the left side.

Paul Casey returns to the U.S. for the PGA Championship this week at Valhalla Golf Club.

The Englishman has made his last seven cuts across the globe, and the first three in that streak occurred on the PGA TOUR. His most recent action was a T47 at The Open Championship. While Casey hasn't completely rebounded to the top-tier player he was about five years ago, he is in a much better place than he was a year or two ago.
Aug 6 - 10:03 PM

Paul Casey has been removed from the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

Casey has made no secret that he was headed to Europe at some point after the U.S. Open (where he tied for 56th place), so this comes as no surprise. In fact, he's scheduled to compete in the Irish Open this week. At 100th in FedExCup points and 96th in earnings, he's comfortably inside the bubble to regain fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15, but we'll probably see him at least once more in case he finds himself in jeopardy. The Brit is already exempt into The Open Championship and should eventually gain entry into the PGA Championship via his Official World Golf Ranking (currently 83rd).
Jun 16 - 11:45 AM

Overnight leader Paul Casey could muster only a 4-over-par 36-40=76 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament, falling into a tie for fifth at 8-under 208.

The Englishman held it together on the front nine at Muirfield Village, erasing a bogey at the par-4 first with a birdie from 23 inches on the par-5 fifth. His only other birdie was an unlikely 28'9" one at the par-3 16th, but it was surrounded by three bogeys and a double bogey on the back. Casey landed just eight GIR and lost 2.047 strokes with the putter. He still has a shot at picking up his second PGA TOUR win on Sunday, but sits four strokes off the lead with 18 to play.
May 31 - 5:44 PM

Paul Casey answered his opening, 6-under-par 32-34=66 at the Memorial with another in his second round to post 12-under 132 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Just more of the same, and we love it. He hit 15 greens in regulation at Muirfield Village today and converted an eagle from 17'8" at the par-5 15th hole and six birdies, the longest measuring just 10'3" at No. 7. Casey also squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from just outside 47 feet at the par-4 17th, but he'll happily accept his position entering the weekend.
May 30 - 5:02 PM

Paul Casey turned in a 6-under-par 32-34=66 for his opening round of the Memorial, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Englishman went out in the first threesome off the first tee this morning and promptly penciled in a bogey-5 at 1. He'd regroup, of course, pouring in six birdies and an eagle (from 35'5" at the par-5 seventh hole). His longest birdie found the cup from the fringe five yards away at 17. He also holed a par try from the rough nine yards out at 12. Overall, Casey missed only one of 14 fairways and four greens in regulation. He missed the cut at Colonial last week, but he has five top 20s in just nine starts this season. It seems to be only a matter of time that he'll climb inside the top 125 in FedExCup points for good and regain fully exempt status. He arrived at Muirfield Village slotted 127th in points.

Pauy Casey has been added to the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Casey was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following two withdrawals today. The Englishman has been taking advantage of his limited opportunities for playing time out of the Past Champion category. A T16 at last week's Byron Nelson is his fifth top 20 of the season. Now 121st in FedExCup points, this will mark his first start at Colonial since 2010 (T13). He finished alone in fifth in his first appearance in 2009.

Paul Casey annihilated TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas for a 7-under-par 36-27=63 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to post 6-under 134 and take the fifth piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

What's hilarious about this round is that he was birdie-free 2-over through six and made the turn in 1-over despite a pedestrian eagle from 9'3" at the par-5 seventh hole. Casey then (and obviously) tore up the back side for six birdies and another eagle, this time from 32'4" at the par-5 16th. His longest birdie measured eight yards from just off the green at 11. He even poured in a par save from 13'1" at the par-4 12th. His 27 is one off the all-time PGA TOUR record established by Corey Pavin at the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship. Pavin's 26 took place on the par-34 front nine at Brown Deer Park. Casey goes in the books as the eighth to shoot 27 on a front or back nine. He's the first since Nick Watney at the 2011 Quicken Loans (née AT&T) National. And for a bonus, the 63 is Casey's new low on the PGA TOUR.
May 16 - 2:14 PM

Paul Casey demolished TPC Louisiana to the tune of an 8-under-par 34-30=64 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to take the clubhouse lead at 13-under 203.

The Englishman was only 1-under through his first eight holes, but caught fire and rattled off six birdies in a seven-hole run beginning with the par-3 ninth. He ended his round with an eighth and final birdie at the par-5 18th, staying blemish-free for the entire lap. Highlights included birdie efforts from 16'4", 10'4" and 23'3" on the ninth, 10th and 11th holes. Casey is playing with only Past Champion status, so it's imperative that he make the most of this opportunity. Despite being a champion across the globe, his only PGA TOUR win came at the 2009 Shell Houston Open.
Apr 26 - 3:55 PM

Paul Casey returns to the Shell Houston Open, where he hoisted the hardware in 2009.

The Englishman is only in the field this week because of that victory via Priority Ranking 16c. His status on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 is that of Past Champion, and his T12 at The Honda Classic left reason for optimism that he would improve that status before next season. He followed that up with a missed cut at the Valspar Championship and a T60 at Bay Hill. He is currently 157th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 31 - 10:42 PM

Paul Casey submitted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Brit has quickly suggested that last week's missed cut at Copperhead is going to be a blip, not a trend. He has finished inside the top 20 in six of his previous eight starts worldwide to climb back inside the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking. Today's walk around Bay Hill was simply vintage. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled six birdies, the longest stretching just 14'8" at the par-4 13th hole. Casey settled for a bogey-5 at 18 before signing his card, but he's just five strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 20 - 2:42 PM

Paul Casey settled for a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of The Honda Classic.

The Englishman was bogey-free 5-under through his first 13 holes at PGA National on Sunday, but bogeys at the 16th and 17th holes on The Bear Trap squelched an otherwise great round. Each of his five birdies fell from inside 10 feet, so proximity was the key to his success. He ends the week at 4-under 276.
Mar 2 - 1:47 PM

Paul Casey received a sponsor exemption into The Honda Classic this week.

The Englishman is part of an elite field, having teed it up at PGA National twice in his career. He tied for fourth in 2010 before missing the cut last year. Playing with only Past Champion status, his ability to gain entry into events has been limited to the WGC-HSBC Champions, where he finished alone in 20th. He sits 93rd in the Official World Golf Ranking, having tied for ninth at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in his last start.
