Paul Casey looped Colonial Country Club in 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.
Back inside the ropes for the first time since an illness forced him out before his second round at TPC Sawgrass two weeks ago, Casey exchanged three birdies with two bogeys at Colonial today. His birdies included conversions from 29 feet at the par-4 10th hole and 14-and-a-half feet at the par-3 16th. He totaled 13 greens in regulation and sits five strokes off the overnight lead.

Paul Casey withdrew from THE PLAYERS before his second round due to an illness.

He was slated to go off the first tee at 9:00 a.m. ET. Casey opened the tournament with a 7-over-par 39-40=79 during which he found 11 (of 14) fairways and went 0-for-12 in scoring opportunities. This is his seventh mid-tournament WD in 162 PGA TOUR starts. He arrived at TPC Sawgrass with top 10s in his last three starts, including a run into the quarterfinals at last week's Match Play.

With the match all square thru 21 holes, the last quarterfinal of the day between Paul Casey and Rory McIlroy was suspended at 8:00 p.m. PT due to darkness.

For the second match in as many days, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy rallied in the closing stages to force extra time, this time against the No. 36 seed Paul Casey. Unlike yesterday however, with McIlroy claiming a hard-earned win over Billy Horschel in 20 holes, darkness fell upon TPC Harding Park and stranded the duo after they halved the par-4 16th in pars. The match is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 6:45 a.m. PT. The winner will face Jim Furyk in the semifinals.

Englishman Paul Casey dispatched Charl Schwartzel 3-and-1 in the round of 16 at today's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Casey hasn't qualified for the WGC-Match Play since 2011 but his back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2009 and 2010 proves he's adept at the format. His win over Schwartzel in the round of 16 morning matches moves him to 4-0 and a face off with Jim Furyk in the quarterfinals. All square through the first six holes, Casey would birdie four of his next six holes to catapult to a 4-up lead thru 12. Schwartzel fought back with back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15 to trim the deficit to 2-up, but that would be as close the South African would get and a par-3 on No. 17 was sufficient for Casey to advance.
May 2 - 7:35 PM

Paul Casey roared back from 4-down at the turn in his third-round match with Francesco Molinari at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship to win 1-up and advanced into the round of 16.

He didn't even need extra holes, either. Molinari won three holes with birdies and one with a par going out today. Casey then birdied the par-4 10th, 11th and 12th holes to shave his deficit to 1-down. He bogeyed and lost the par-3 13th and didn't find another par breaker the rest of the way, but the Italian handed him wins with bogeys at 15, 16 and 17, the last also included the lead in the match. Matching pars at 18 shrouded the flurry of activity that preceded. It's a huge win for the Englishman as he went 3-0 and avoided a three-way playoff. Despite concern for his right wrist, Molinari went 1-2.
May 1 - 8:57 PM

In the longest match of the first round at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Paul Casey defeated Chris Kirk in 22 holes.

The match lasted about five hours and ended when Kirk bogeyed the par-4 fourth on his second time through. It was his fifth bogey of the day and fourth that cost him a hole, but he countered with two birdie-wins and another with a par. The duo matched bogeys at the par-3 17th and birdies at the par-5 18th. In the first hole of sudden death, both birdied the par-5 first, and then traded pars before Casey clinched. The Brit will face Adam Scott in the second round on Thursday. Ten minutes later, Kirk will go out against Francesco Molinari.
Apr 29 - 10:26 PM

Paul Casey is making his 10th career World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship start this week in San Francisco and sports a 16-9 record in this event.

Casey is a two-time runner-up at the Cadillac Match Play in 2009 and 2010 (both at Dove Mtn.). This will be his first appearance at this event since a 4 and 2 loss to Jason Day in round two of the 2011 edition. A match-play veteran of several formats, Casey owns a 26-19-2 career singles record, most recently going 1-1-1 in the 16-man Volvo World Match Play. The Englishman has four top 10s in his last six events on TOUR finishing T6 in his last start at the Masters. His Group 9 opponents: Chris Kirk, Adam Scott and Francesco Molinari.
Apr 28 - 9:57 AM

Paul Casey wrapped up the 79th Masters with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round.

Casey hit only 10 greens today, but he still signed for his third sub-70 of the week. Sparked by an eagle-3 at the second hole, he added five birdies. They offset three bogeys on his outward nine. At 9-under 279, Casey shattered his personal low in five previous paydays at Augusta National. He sat T6 on the leaderboard when he walked off, so he'll log his second straight top 10 and fourth in his last six starts dating back to the Northern Trust Open.
Apr 12 - 6:03 PM

Paul Casey back-pedaled to 2-over-par 36-38=74 in his third round of the Masters.

Ah, golf. Just like in Friday's second round, the Englishman hit 14 greens in regulation today, but he needed six more strokes to complete 18 holes. Casey's only par breaker came courtesy of a nifty pitch at the scorable, par-4 third hole. He incurred bogeys at 7, 16 and 18 before settling at 5-under 211. That's seven strokes adrift of the 54-hole clubhouse lead, but his deficit is going to grow by many more once Jordan Spieth concludes his round.
Apr 11 - 6:55 PM

Paul Casey spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the 79th Masters.

Only Jordan Spieth, who leads at 14-under 130, and Charley Hoffman have turned in a pair of sub-70s this week. Casey shot 69 on Thursday, so he's seven strokes back of Spieth. The Englishman went 4-for-4 in scrambling and circled four birdies today. The set feature a zero-putt conversion from the fringe at the par-4 first hole and a long-range putt across the green from the front of the surface at the par-3 sixth. Casey's only blemish remains a bogey-5 on the 18th hole in the lid-lifter.
Apr 10 - 6:47 PM

Paul Casey crafted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the 79th Masters.

The Brit hit only 11 greens in regulation and dropped just one shot (at the par-4 18th), but he connected for four birdies to finish two strokes off the clubhouse lead. He cashed in five of his previous eight trips to Augusta National and has six sub-70s in 26 previous rounds, but today's is his first in an opener. He arrived with some form following a solo ninth in Houston, and has exhibited strong play on multiple occasions this year, so today's success isn't surprising.
Apr 9 - 3:43 PM

Paul Casey concluded the Shell Houston Open with a 1-under-par 35-36=71 to post 12-under 276, good for a top 10.

He's four strokes off the 72-hole clubhouse lead. It wasn't a terrible day for the Englishman, but his iron play let him down a bit. Casey created 16 scoring opportunities, but converted just twice for birdie, including a roll from 18'11" at the par-4 third hole. Overall, he missed only one look inside 11 feet, that a par try from eight feet at the par-4 17th where he penciled in three-putt bogey. Casey took a 5 on the hole in each of the last three rounds. However, even though he didn't make any noise today, he'll head to the Masters with some form. It's a well-timed end to a mini-drought.
Apr 5 - 6:01 PM

Paul Casey signed for a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round at the Golf Club of Houston and stays in contention at 11-under 205, two strokes behind the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Casey turned in his third consecutive round in the 60s to spark conversation more akin of his win here in 2009 and not his three missed cuts in his last three visits to Humble, Texas. After missing birdie putts from inside 10 feet at holes 2 and 3, he did manage a two-putt birdie from long range at the par-5 fourth. He added consecutive birdies on Nos. 6, 7 and 8, converting all from inside seven feet, and then saved par from off the green on No. 9 to keep his momentum going. It's good thing that Casey did all his damage on his outward nine as he only added one birdie on No. 10 against one bogey on hole 17 coming home.
Apr 4 - 5:10 PM

Paul Casey turned in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, coming to rest just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Casey hit a speed bump after a T3 at The Honda Classic, but it's always nice to return to the site of a victory. In fact, his title at the 2009 SHO remains his only win on the PGA TOUR in 158 starts. He added to his personal highlight reel in today's loop, holing two eagle-3s complemented by as many birdies. His first eagle came conventionally at the fourth hole where he landed his approach just 14 feet from the stick. The second eagle was a gift in that he holed out from the fairway 50 yards away at No. 13. Alas, the Brit closed bogey-par-bogey, but would go on to sign for his lowest score at the Golf Club of Houston since his first (66) in 2009.
Apr 2 - 1:40 PM

After a two-year hiatus from the Masters, Paul Casey has earned an exemption into the first major of 2014-15.

The top 50 of the latest Official World Golf Ranking was used to help fill the exclusive field at Augusta National Golf Club on April 9-12. Casey sits 48th in the formula. The Brit last appeared in 2012, missing the cut. At 33rd in the OWGR, India's Anirban Lahiri ranks highest of the four qualifiers tonight. He's already a two-time winner on the European Tour in 2015, so it was just a matter of time before he was official eligible for his debut in the Masters. Branden Grace (41st) and Bernd Wiesberger (42nd) round out the foursome. The 26-year-old from South Africa will be making his third consecutive appearance while the 29-year-old Austrian is poised for his first. The final exemption into the tournament is reserved for the winner of the Shell Houston Open. There are no alternates for the Masters.
