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. Sep 25 - 6:54 PM

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.

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.
Sep 9 - 10:15 AM

Paul Casey came up two strokes shy at the Deutsche Bank Championship after a disappointing 2-over-par 37-36=73 during the final round, finishing the week in solo-second place on 13-under 271.

The Englishman opened the day with a three-shot cushion but failed to find the scoring machine that was clicking on all cylinders during rounds one through three. Today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways but found just 13 greens, losing 0.794 strokes approaching-the-green. during the first three rounds he had gained 6.109 strokes in that category. Despite the lackluster round, the 39-year-old walked on the tee box of the par-5 18th needing an eagle force a playoff with Rory McIlroy. His approach ended 58'1" past the hole and he took three swipes to get home for par. Casey was sleeping on his first lead on TOUR this season and was looking for his first PGA TOUR win since his maiden 2009 Shell Houston Open. On the bright side, this easily eclipses his previous best at TPC Boston (T25, 2010) and rockets him from 59th to 10th place in the FedExCup race.
Sep 5 - 2:31 PM

World No. 30 Paul Casey smoothed a 5-under-par 34-32=66 on Moving Day at the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 15-under 198, good for a three-shot lead over Brian Harman, four clear of Smylie Kaufman, Jimmy Walker and overnight leader Kevin Chappell.

The 39-year-old began the third frame in a two-way T2 after opening in twin 66s, one back of Chappell. Playing out of the final twosome, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.825 SG: Approach-the-Green and 4.575 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Englishman squared a lone bogey at the par-3 third (failed scramble), but overshadowed it with a turkey on holes 5-7, each finding the bottom from between six and 12 feet. Eight pars later, he circled birdie-2 at the 16th, from 4'11", and walked-off with an eagle at the par-5 18th after hitting his approach from 233 yards to 29 inches. This is Casey's first lead on TOUR this season after any round (20th start). He's chasing his second TOUR title in 194 career events, last winning in a playoff at the 2009 Shell Houston Open.
Sep 4 - 6:04 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Paul Casey authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the midpoint on 10-under 132, up one place to T2, one back of 36-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

There were only three bogey-free laps in Round 2 and the 39-year-old's was the best of the bunch. He circled five birdies, three less than Round 1, but averted any dropped shots, carding his second straight 66. The Englishman did his damage on 16 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.475 SG: Putting. The Englishman got on the board with a 20-footer for birdie-2 at 16, and added back-to-backs on holes 3 and 4, both from inside of five feet. Casey went back-to-back again on 6 and 7, these dropping from between 10 and 17 feet. He kept the card clean with a 5'6" par-saver at the par-3 eighth.
Sep 3 - 6:51 PM

After an even-par first half, Paul Casey rallied for a 5-under-par 36-30=66 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to share the early clubhouse mark with Fabian Gomez. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T3, one back of co-leaders James Hahn and Ryan Moore.

There are 11 par 4s at the par-71 TPC Boston and the 39-year-old birdied seven of them, including three straight on holes 12-14. He parred two of them, the 4th and the 5th, and squared bogey-5s on 1 and 15, the latter a 3-putt from 31'5". Casey also 3-putted the par-3 eighth from 77'6". He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.888 SG: Putting. The Englishman's split featured five conversions from greater than eight feet with a long of 18'2" at the par-4 10th. He's making his fourth DBC appearance with his only cash a T25 in 2010.
Sep 2 - 1:25 PM

Paul Casey tacked on a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 201, up three places to T6 with play still in progress.

The 39-year-old began Round 3 in a seven-way logjam on 5-under (T9), two shy of a foursome of overnight leaders after opening in 68-67. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways en route to 1.708 SG: Off-the-Tee and is currently pacing the field with a cumulative 3.764. The Englishman circled five birdies on 16 greens regulation for 1.813 putts per GIR, including a 24-footer on the par-4 seventh and a 49-footer on the par-5 13th. His lone bogey was a 3-putt from 51'11" at the par-4 fourth.
Aug 6 - 1:27 PM

Paul Casey made an early move up the Travelers Championship leaderboard with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the second round, climbing to 5-under 135 on the week.

The Englishman scared some gamers early in the week when he posted a photo on Twitter of his bruised toe. He said, "Been told it's not broken. Luckily the pain offsets the arthritis pain in my right foot." The toe hasn't slowed him down, so far, landing 30 greens in regulation through two days (currently T9 in the field). Casey lost in a playoff last year in his Travelers debut and he arrived off a T10 at last week's PGA Championship so there was plenty to like entering the week. Gamers who ignored the toe injury are getting handsomely rewarded thus far as he's swallowed just one bogey and circled six birdies through two days at TPC River Highlands.
Aug 5 - 12:49 PM

Paul Casey awoke to card a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the 98th PGA Championship to finish off his 14th appearance on 7-under 273, up five places on the live leaderboard to T9.

The 39-year-old is on the cusp of book-ending top 10s in the season's four majors. He posted T4 at the Masters before missed cuts at the U.S. Open and The Open. The Englishman is also flirting with his first top 10 at the PGA with a previous best of T12 in 2010 (Whistling Straits). He began R4 on 4-under (T14), after wrapping up seven holes remaining from his third round on Saturday. Casey exchanged one birdie with one bogey to turn even before coming home in blemish-free 3-under, circling birdies on Nos. 14, 15 and 18. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his fourth in 17 starts, first since the Masters.
