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. Mar 29 - 9:10 PM

Paul Casey settled for a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in his final round of The Honda Classic to post up at 5-under 275, one stroke off Daniel Berger's 72-hole clubhouse lead.

You had a feeling that when darkness suspended play on Sunday night, Casey would lose his touch on the greens. He opened the finale with a birdie from 12'2" at the par-4 first and added a par save from 13'1" at 3, another birdie from 12-and-a-half feet at 4 and yet another impressive conversion for par at 6, this time from 17'9". But the Brit played his inward nine in birdie-free 2-over with two bogeys. His only realistic shot dropping a putt missed for par from 6'7" at the par-4 11th. If there's a measure of solace, it's that he's connected strong weeks after a slow start to 2015. The burst has moved him to 45th in the latest edition of the Official World Golf Ranking from which the top 50 are exempt into this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. The Englishman was the only new entry in the top 50. He hasn't qualified for the invitation-only field since 2012.
Mar 2 - 10:32 AM

Paul Casey spun a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of The Honda Classic to take the clubhouse lead at 3-under 207.

Casey circled four birdies, including a 25'6" effort on the first hole and a 22'3" birdie on the last, to go with two bogeys on his lap around PGA National's Champion Course. His ball-striking carried him, as he gained over five strokes tee-to-green while landing 15 GIR. He will try and take it deep in the finale in an effort to secure his second PGA TOUR victory and first since the 2009 Shell Houston Open.
Mar 1 - 3:23 PM

At 1-under-par 69-70=139, Paul Casey sits five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at The Honda Classic.

The Brit completed his second round on Friday, but has since crept into the top 10 on the leaderboard as play continues this morning. He hit 13 greens in regulation on Friday, but converted for birdie just twice, including a roll from 13'4" at the par-5 third hole. He also squared two bogeys and saved par from 17'10" at the par-4 13th. So, to walk off without a red number given his precision is both disappointing and a potential omen that it's just a matter of time before the putts start falling.
Feb 28 - 8:13 AM

Paul Casey hung a 3-under-par 33-35-68 on the scoreboard in the final round of the Northern Trust Open to take the clubhouse lead at 6-under 278.

Casey spread five birdies and two bogeys across his round at Riviera Country Club, with a 12'11" birdie at the par-4 ninth and a 30'11" bomb at the par-3 16th standing as the highlights. He bogeyed the par-4 18th after a poor drive forced a lay up, or he would hold the co-lead in real time to go with the clubhouse lead. He split just half of the 14 fairways and landed a mere 10 greens in regulation. It seems unlikely that he will find himself in a playoff, but he should hang around the property just in case.
Feb 22 - 5:36 PM

At 3-under-par 70-69=139, Paul Casey is three strokes off the 36-hole led at the Northern Trust Open.

Casey's form has come and gone in recent months, but he's getting over on Riviera Country Club, at least for now. After trading seven birdies with six bogeys in the lid-lifter, he buried an eagle and two birdies offset by just two bogeys today. His eagle came, where else, at the par-5 first hole where he chipped in from the rough 17 yards away. His longest conventional conversion ran 19'2" for birdie at the par-4 15th hole, but the Brit also saved par from 19 feet at the par-4 12th. Again, since he's struggled putting four rounds together, none of this success means much for the weekend.
Feb 20 - 8:59 PM

Paul Casey turns his attention to Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

The Englishman enters the week on the heels of back-to-back missed cuts. His history at the Norther Trust is much better, though, boasting top 25s in each of his past two starts. Casey currently clocks in at just 88th in strokes gained:total after four events. He's proven he is close to returning to the winner's circle on the PGA TOUR, but this is not the best week to expect that given his form entering the week.
Feb 17 - 8:50 AM

Overnight co-leader Paul Casey answered his opening 62 with an even-par 34-36=70 to reach the midpoint in 8-under 132, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

As much as Thursday's round was one to remember, it's like that the Brit would just assume forget today's. He hit 13 greens in regulation, but stumbled to four bogeys, including a three-jack from 32'5" at the par-4 15th hole. Overall, Casey missed on seven looks inside 10 feet. He rallied for four birdies, however, three from outside 11 feet, the longest stretching 19'8" at the par-4 first hole. Alas, it served as but a tease for a long day on Oahu.
Jan 16 - 9:36 PM

Paul Casey ripped off an 8-under-par 31-31=62 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to grab outright possession of the early clubhouse lead.

The Englishman went out in the third threesome off the 10th tee at Waialae Country Club and promptly birdied the par-4 opener. He added eight birdies to help hide a lone bogey at the par-4 sixth hole. Casey split only five (of 14) fairways, but he found 15 greens in regulation en route to the clinic. Three of his birdies traveled longer than 10 feet; the highlight dropped in from 18'4" at No. 14. This is his 152nd career start on the PGA TOUR, but he had signed for an aggregate as low as this one.
Jan 15 - 4:43 PM

After a nine-year hiatus, Paul Casey is back at Waialae Country Club for this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

He missed the cut in his debut in 2005. The absence has been easy to explain. He's usually competing on the European Tour's Desert Swing at this time of year, but the 37-year-old has made a significant decision in 2015. He's no longer a European Tour member. "It’s the first time I haven’t had membership since forever," he said. Indeed. Casey was a rookie on the circuit in 2001 and is a two-time winner of the the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, which is the event on the Euro Tour this week. Fully exempt again on the PGA TOUR for the first time since 2011, we should see him at least 15 times. Last year, he made 16 starts on Past Champion status, posted seven top 20s (zero top 10s) and qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs. The Sony Open is his second start of this season.
Jan 14 - 8:13 AM

Paul Casey collected his 13th European Tour win over the fall, and will look to build on that momentum during the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

The Englishman rattled off nine top 25s last season on the PGA TOUR and made it back to the Playoffs after a three-year recess. He bowed out early when his fiancée was ready to deliver their first child, but he got right back on the train, winning overseas at the KLM Open. Armed with full PGA TOUR status and a rejuvenated swing, Casey looks poised for a strong 2014-15 campaign.

Paul Casey will have a crack at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club as he makes his debut at this week's CIMB Classic.

The Englishman took home the hardware at last month's KLM Open, but has finished outside the top 50 in his two European Tour appearances since. While 2014 has certainly been a good comeback year for Casey, he has only landed inside the top 10 on two occasions. Gamers are looking long and hard at Casey this week, but his perceived value in salary-cap leagues may be a little higher right now than his actual value.

Paul Casey came from behind at Kennemer Golf & Country Club in Zandvoort, The Netherlands, to win the KLM Open by one stroke over fellow Englishman Simon Dyson.

The champ began the day four shots back of Frenchman Romain Wattel, who would close with a 4-over-par 37-37=74 and settle for T5. Poised for a strike after his course-record-tying 62 in the third round, Casey carded a 4-under 32-34=66 today to steal the title. It's his 13th victory on the European Tour and his first as a father. His fiancée gave birth to the couple's first child, a boy, on Sept. 1. "I’m a bit emotional to be honest," he said. "It was very carefree for three-and-a-half days, because if I played well or poorly I was going to go home to see my baby, and then I got to the last three holes and I thought I really want this -- not that he is old enough to understand. ... Just having my first child was a great distraction. I had no expectations coming into the week and I did very little pratice. ... I’m absolutely over the moon." Andy Sullivan of England finished alone in third place two swings adrift. His Sunday 67 included a hole-in-one at the par-3 15th.

Paul Casey spun a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the KLM Open.

The Englishman has been sidelined for the birth of his first child (last week). He traded four birdies with two bogeys at Kennemer Golf & Country Club in Zandvoort in The Netherlands today. Casey is three strokes off the clubhouse lead held by Dutchman Joost Luiten. The lid-lifter will be completed on Friday.

Paul Casey has been removed from the published field of this week's Omega European Masters.

Casey's fiancée is due to deliver the couple's first child any day, so he's delayed his prospective return to competition to next week's KLM Open in The Netherlands. After taking last week off as well, he drifted to 95th in the FedExCup standings. The Englishman is currently 90th in the Race to Dubai.
