Paul Casey sputtered out of the gate in round one but rebounded to record a 9-under-par 32-31=63 during the second round of the CIMB Classic, rising 49 spots on the leaderboard, up to T23 on 4-under 140. UPDATE: Casey posted weekend rounds of 69-65 for a T7 on 14-under 274 and his first top-20 finish in four tries (T21/2017).
The Englishman couldn't find the bottom of the cup in round one but turned his fortunes dramatically on day two. Playing through a weather delay that lasted nearly four hours, Casey circled 10 birdies today after finding just one yesterday. He accomplished this by pelting four more greens than R1, while also catching fire with the flat stick. Casey had reached 8-under thru 14 holes today, eyeing down the course-record 61 (Justin Thomas, 2016) but those hopes were squashed when he settled for par on the next two holes. This round falls one shy of his career low on the PGA TOUR (8-under 62 in R1 of the 2015 Sony Open) and also puts him back in the mix ahead of the weekend. A win is still unlikely as he sits nine strokes off the pacesetter at the moment. Oct 13 - 7:54 AM

World No. 14 Paul Casey, a pre-tourney 12/1 outright, is in Kuala Lumpur for his fourth straight CIMB Classic.

The 40-year-old is void of a top-20 finish at TPC Kuala Lumpur but has posted progressively better finishes of T37/2015, T24/2016 and T21 last year (65-72-70-70). He finished last season 11th in the final FedExCup standings, going 23-for-24 with 17 top 25s and nine top 10s, both career highs, and leads the TOUR in consecutive cuts made (20). The Englishman, a dad for a second time in September, recorded six top 5s, five in his last eight starts, including solo 5th at the TOUR Championship (as 54-hole leader). Interestingly, he had just one podium, a T3 at the season-opening Safeway, which he didn't play this year, and has just the one TOUR win (2009, Houston Open) in 220 career events.

Second-round co-leader and 54-hole leader Paul Casey labored to a 3-over-par 38-35=73 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, dropping four places to solo 5th on 9-under 271, three short of champion Xander Schauffele, who shot 68 out of the penultimate twosome, and drops to 1-for-5 as 36-hole leader/co-leader and 1-for-3 as 54-hole leader/co-leader.

After kicking off in 66-67-65, the 40-year-old led by two over playing competitor Kevin Kisner and Schauffele. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.807 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.710 approaching-the-green and 1.538 around-the-green. The Englishman was birdie-less 4-over thru 17 holes, squaring Nos. 4, 5, 9 and 15, before mustering a closing birdie at the par-5 18th from 4'7". He registered a pedestrian 1.917 putts per GIR and -0.726 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts. This was Casey's fourth top-5 finish at East Lake in four tries, and overall, his 10th top 10 in 20 Playoff events, recording his sixth top-5 finish in his last seven. He finishes the season 11th in the FedExCup standings with nine top 10s in 24 starts, six of those for top 5s. The Arizona State product's lone TOUR title in 220 career events remains the 2009 SHO, 143 starts ago.

Overnight tri-leader and World No. 16 Paul Casey twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the third-quarter pole on 12-under 198, good for a two-shot lead over Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele. UPDATE: This is Casey's third career 54-hole lead/co-lead, previously 1-for-2 converting (P1, 2009 SHO).

After opening in 66-67, the 40-year-old co-led with Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson. Playing out of the final twosome with Thomas (70), he landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.765 strokes around-the-green but gaining 2.482 approaching-the-green. The Englishman squared two bogeys at holes 8 and 9 (failed sand saves), camouflaged by eagle-3 at 6 from 10'8" and five birdies at 3, 5, 7, 11 and 17, three from between 12 and 41 feet, ending his scoring with a 40'7" bomb for birdie-3 at 17. He posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 3.269 SG: Putting with 26 total putts, No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 7.325.

Sep 23 - 6:43 PM

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, up one place to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T1, tied with Thomas and Webb Simpson. This is his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 220 career events, previously 1-for-4 converting.

The 40-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.143 strokes off-the-tee and 0.325 around-the-green, but gaining 0.752 approaching-the-green. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 11 holes, circling Nos. 3, 6, 7 and 10, before back-to-back bogey-5s at 12 and 13 (failed scrambles), completing his scoring with birdie-3 at 16. The Englishman's split included four from between seven and 11 feet, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. He's currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 4.041.

Paul Casey smoothed a 4-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the TOUR Championship, claiming an early seat at the contention table on Thursday afternoon.

The Englishman welcomed their daughter to the world before the BMW Championship and Casey proceeded to finish outside the top 15 for the first time since June (T33). He is back on track today as he split 10 (of 14) fairways to keep his approach shots relatively stressfree. He didn't dazzle on approach but then gained 2.462 strokes putting to make up for his down day with the irons. Highlights included an 18'11" splash at the 15th and an 11'7 conversion at the 17th, both for birdie. Casey is making his fourth appearance at East Lake Golf Club and now has opening rounds of 66, 65, 68, and 66. With a trio of top 5s already on his resume, Casey could be on his way to a fourth here at East Lake.

Fresh off the birth of his daughter, Paul Casey will turn his attention toward Conway Farms Golf Club for this week's BMW Championship.

Casey and his wife Pollyanna welcomed their daughter, Astaria, into the world this weekend, as reported by his swing coach Peter Kostis on Twitter. Could Nappy Factor be the missing piece that helps catapult Casey back into the winner's circle? That is yet to be determined but Casey did win his first event back after the birth of his son Lex (2014 KLM Open). One thing is certain, Casey arrives in stellar form, rattling off six straight top 15s. On the flip side, Ron Mintz of MyGolfDaily reported that Paul Casey will be arriving late this week. If gamers are looking for any reason to swerve the Englishman, the limited prep could do the trick. Everything else points to another good week for Casey.

Paul Casey picked up his fourth top 5 of the summer after posting a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in round four of the Dell Technologies Championship, good for a T4 finish on 12-under 272.

The Englishman arrived with five straight top 15s and kept that strong play alive this week at TPC Boston. Casey kept his name in the mix with steady striking, ranking T2 in GIR percentage on the week, including 13 GIR in round four. On the week, he finished ninth in strokes gained putting, but lost nearly a stroke on the greens in R4. That included six missed putts in the 7-to-13 foot range to go with a pair of misses from 3-to-6 feet. If Casey continues to strike the ball as well as he has over the past six months, there is no doubt he will find his way back into the winner's circle. His lone PGA TOUR win is still the 2009 Shell Houston Open
Sep 4 - 6:35 PM

World No. 14 Paul Casey shot a 4-under-par 35-32=67 on Day 3 of the Dell Technologies Championship to reach 11-under 202, down one spot to solo 3rd, one adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Justin Thomas and Marc Leishman.

The 40-year-old was the 54-hole leader (by three) last year before finishing runner-up with a Monday 73. His one TOUR win in 217 prior starts was in a playoff at the 2009 Shell Houston Open as a 54-hole co-leader. The Englishman found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.798 strokes off-the-tee and 0.617 approaching-the-green, but lost 0.265 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at No. 5, outpaced by five circles at 3, 6, 13, 15 and 17, two from between 28 and 31 feet. Casey recorded 1.643 putts per GIR and 2.774 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Sep 3 - 6:34 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 14 Paul Casey painted a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship for a two-day total of 7-under 135, up 20 places on the live leaderboard to T2, two swings shy of clubhouse leader Jon Rahm.

The Englishman squared two bogey-5s at Nos. 10 and 1, overshadowed by seven conventional circles at 14, 15, 17, 18, 2, 7 and 8, three from between 10 and 29 feet, adding a pitch-in birdie-3 at 5 from 68'6" away. He registered 1.538 putts per GIR and 3.302 SG: Putting, taking just 25 total putts.
Sep 2 - 2:36 PM

World No. 17 Paul Casey backed up with a 1-over-par 38-33=71 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to conclude on 6-under 274, down two spots to solo 5th, seven swings shy of a two-man playoff involving 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson.

This was the 40-year-old's sixth appearance, fourth top 25, first since T22 in 2014 (Ridgewood CC), and second top 10, joining T7 on debut in 2008, also at Ridgewood. It was his 17th overall Playoffs event, eighth top 10 and sixth top 5, and fourth straight top 5. After opening in 69-68-66, the Englishman began T3 on 7-under, five back of Spieth. He mustered six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.281 strokes around-the-green and 0.128 tee-to-green. Casey circled four at Nos. 2, 11, 13 and 17, outbalanced by five squares at 1, 3, 5, 6 and 18 (3-putt from 40'4"), posting 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.792 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. He's projected to bump six places to 12th in the FedExCup standings.
Aug 27 - 6:01 PM

World No. 17 Paul Casey tossed up a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to reach 7-under 203, up seven spots to T3 and good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead with defending champ Patrick Reed but five back of the leader on the course Jordan Spieth. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T3 and five back of Spieth, and will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.

The 40-year-old hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.005 SG: Approach-the-Green and 4.655 SG: Tee-to-Green, currently No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 9.416. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 9 and 12 (3-putt from 42'10"), camouflaged by six circles at 3, 5, 8, 13, 14 and 16, all from inside of nine feet. The Englishman recorded 1.714 putts per GIR and -0.316 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.
Aug 26 - 5:10 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 17 Paul Casey navigated a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST for a two-day tally of 3-under 137, up 12 places to T8 with play still in progress.

This is the 40-year-old's sixth appearance with three prior top 25s and one top 10, a T7 on debut in 2008 (Ridgewood CC). He opened with 1-under 69 (five birdies, two bogeys, one double), and came back on Day 2 with four birdies overshadowing two bogeys, including one 3-putt from 28'9". The Englishman found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 2.130 SG: Approach-the-Green and 1.755 SG: Around-the-Green. He recorded a commercial 1.933 putts per GIR, -1.020 SG: Putting and needed 32 total putts, the latter aided by a hole-out birdie-2 at 15 from 74'3" away.

Round two of the 99th PGA Championship was suspended due to darkness at 8:11 p.m. ET, with play set to resume on Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. Paul Casey dropped his final putt just in time to beat darkness, carding a 1-under-par 37-33=70 to reach 3-under 139, five back of 36-hole co-clubhouse leaders Kevin Kisner and Hideki Matsuyama. UPDATE: R2 play resumed at 7:27 a.m. on Saturday with 25 (of 153) needing to complete their respective rounds.

The Englishman had to be satisfied with his opening 2-under 69 but he couldn't replicate that magic in the early going today. He picked up 11 pars and two bogeys over his opening 13 holes, including a missed 4'11" opportunity at the 11th. Finally, he caught fire with a three-hole birdie train which kicked off the at 14th and ended with a 17'9" birdie splash at the par-4 16th. Casey arrived with eight straight top 30s in stroke-play events but he has his eyes set much higher as he searches for his first win in a major championship. The culprit for this round being suspended was a 1 hour, 43-minute delay which took place at 4:43 local time.
Aug 11 - 8:31 PM

Paul Casey walked off Quail Hollow Club with a 2-under-par 35-34=69 during the opening round of the 99th PGA Championship, positioning himself inside the top 10 as the afternoon wave gets underway.

The Englishman opened his day on the back nine with birdies in three of his first five holes. They all came on birdie looks from inside six feet. He would give himself just two more looks from that range before his round was over (missing a 3'6" attempt at the 5th and converting a 5'8" putt at the 7th). The remainder of his scoring chances came from the 15-to-20 foot range, failing to knock any of those in as his putter remained cold all day. On top of his 3'6" birdie miss, he had also missed a 3'8" par-saving attempt at the 17th. Even with the cold putter, Casey is right in the mix as he looks to collect his ninth straight top 30.
