World No. 13 Paul Casey flirted with the course record but settled for a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the 82nd Masters to wrap on 5-under 283 (74-75-69-65), up 14 places to T16 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey finished T15 after making the cut T46 on the number.

This was the 40-year-old's 56th major and the 65 is a new low, eclipsing 66 shot three times, most recently in R1 of the 2017 Open. He had his eye on the tournament record of 9-under 63, bogey-free 9-under thru 15 holes, but finished in par-bogey-bogey. The Englishman hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.33 putts per GIR. He went out in 3-under, circling red at holes 2, 5 and 8, and then played 11-15 in 6-under, sandwiching eagle-3 at 13 (from 15 feet) with birdies at 11, 12, 14 and 15. Casey's blemishes were a failed sand save at 17 (missed par-saver from 13 feet), and a 3-putt bogey at 18 from 68 feet. His top-10 streak at the Masters will end at three straight, but will record an eighth top 25 in 12 tries. It's also Casey's sixth consecutive top-30 finish in majors, dating to a T10 at the 2016 PGA.

Paul Casey is all set for a 12th appearance in the 82nd Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Perhaps the Englishman's biggest problem this week is expecting too much of himself because the case for him contending is strong and presumably he knows it. He's notched six WGC top 20s on the bounce, was T26 or better in all four majors last year, has 12 top ten finishes from his last 25 starts (including victory in the Valspar Championship) and his Augusta record? T6-T4-T6 in the last three years and he has ranked first for Greens in Regulation, Scrambling and Bogey Avoidance down the years at ANGC. A pretty neat and comprehensive package. In total he has seven top 20s (and five top tens) here from 11 starts.

Paul Casey, the 10th seed, backed up his opening-day win over Russell Henley with a second victory at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC, moving to 2-0-0 in Group 10 with a 4-and-2 success over Kyle Stanley.

The Englishman, who ended a long victory drought on American soil by winning the Valspar Championship earlier this month, led from the very first hole against his American rival. Despite playing the front nine in just 1-under, Casey found himself 3-up at the turn. He turned the screw at 10 by draining a 20-footer for a winning birdie to go 4-up and Stanley couldn't make the necessary inroads into that big lead. The 45th seed did win 13 with a birdie but Casey span his wedge to concession range at 16 to close out his rival. He'll secure a place in the last 16 with a win or a half in his Friday clash against compatriot Matt Fitzpatrick.

Paul Casey will look to reignite his match play flames when he tees it up in this week's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

The World No. 13 will be buzzing after his emphatic win in the Valspar Championship and, what's more, a return to a favored format. Back in 2006 he claimed the venerable HSBC World Match Play Championship at Wentworth and, having lost in round one four times in this event, that U.K. success prompted improved returns. He made the last eight in 2007, last 16 in 2008 and was second in both 2009 and 2010. A career drought followed and he missed many WGC events and has not quite rediscovered his glory in this event: a quarter final in 2015 and a record of 3-3-1 at this venue. He was, however, undefeated in the group last year (wins over Charl Schwartzel, Joost Luiten and Ben An) before eventual semi-finalist Hideto Tanihara bested him 2-and-1 in the last 16. He plays Russell Henley in Group 10, with Matthew Fitzpatrick and Kyle Stanley completing the set.

World No. 17 Paul Casey, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, twirled a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to reach 10-under 274, up 10 spots to the top of the board, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead, tying the low round of the day thus far and matching the low round of the week with three others. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey won by one shot over Patrick Reed (68) and Tiger Woods (70).

The 40-year-old claims his second TOUR victory in 227 events, joining the 2009 Shell Houston Open (as 54-hole co-leader) 150 starts ago. After opening in 70-68-71, he began T11 on 4-under, five back of leader Corey Conners. Playing out of the ninth-to-last twosome, the Englishman landed nine (of 13) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, gaining 2.366 strokes around-the-green and 4.362 tee-to-green. The ASU product squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 3, camouflaged by seven birdies at 1, 4, 5, 7 and 11-13, two from between 19 and 20 feet and a 21-footer from the fringe at 13. He recorded 1.333 putts per GIR and 1.656 SG: Putting with a career-low 21 total putts. Casey is now 3-for-5 at the Valspar and this is his first top-30 finish (T37/2011). He improves to 7-for-7 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, and is the TOUR-leader in Consecutive Cuts Made (27 straight).

Paul Casey squeezed the most out of his second round at the Valspar Championship, signing for a 3-under-par 36-32=68 to reach 4-under 138 on the week, good for an early share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead alongside Brandt Snedeker and Tiger Woods.UPDATE: With play done for the day, Casey now sits in a share of second place, two off the pacesetter Corey Conners.

The Englishman didn't have his best stuff today but still managed to swallow just one bogey. In fact, Casey didn't set up a scoring chance inside 20 feet until the par-5 11th hole where he tapped in a 3'2" birdie putt. By day's end, he gave himself four looks at birdie from inside that 20-foot bubble, converting on three of them. He also added a 22'5" birdie splash from long distance. Not in typical Casey fashion, the Englishman lost strokes with his long game today but managed nearly 4 strokes gained in the around-the-green and putting departments combined. If this co-lead holds it will be his sixth career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR with the latest coming at the 2017 TOUR Championship.
Mar 9 - 12:44 PM

World No. 17 Paul Casey authored a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship to wrap on 9-under 275, up 14 spots to T12 with play still in progress.

The 40-year-old missed a 7'8" birdie chance on the 72nd hole to get inside the current top 10. If he does get in, it'll be his 16th top 10 in 45 career WGC events, more likely though, it'll be his eighth straight top 25. The Englishman finished T16 here last year with weekend rounds of 67-66, and ended this week with 68-68-66 after an opening 73. He's now 6-for-6 on the season with five top 25s and possibly a third top 10. For the week, Casey totaled 18 birdies against nine bogeys and is currently 16th in SG: Tee-to-Green (5.017), highlighted by a 13th in SG: Around-the-Green (1.982).
Mar 4 - 4:27 PM

Paul Casey heads back to Club de Golf Chapultepec for this week's WGC-Mexico Championsihip and will hope to make a faster start this time.

The Englishman was down in 59th place after an opening 74 and only 48th at halfway in last year's inaugural edition but he really hit his straps over the weekend and shot 67-66 to leap to tied 16th. It suggests Casey worked something out and he'll be much better prepared this time. The World No. 17 has two top 10s from his three PGA Tour starts this season and boasts impressive WGC strokeplay form of 11-5-16-12-16-7 over the last two years. The win continues to elude him but the 40-year-old offers gamers excellent reliability and enjoys the no-cut format.

World No. 17 Paul Casey bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a four-day total of 10-under 277, up four spots to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey finished T8.

After opening with 67-70-70, the 40-year-old began T13 on 8-under, one short of the overnight top 10. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.828 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.834 around-the-green. The Englishman carded seven birdies, four straight at holes 3-6 and three in his final four at 15, 16 and 18, In between, he ate double bogey-6 at 7 and three squares at 8, 13 (3-putt from 7'5") and 14. Casey posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.092 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. This was his first cash in his third AT&T and his first visit since 2002. The ASU product improves to 4-for-4 on the season with four top 20s and possibly a second top 10, joining T7 at the CIMB Classic.

Paul Casey cruised to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 while taking on the host course in round one of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Making his first appearance at this event since 2002 (3rd overall appearance), Casey is starting much better than his younger self. In his previous two starts here he opened with rounds of 76 and 75 en route to missed cuts. This time around he split 10 fairways before gaining 3.576 strokes approaching-the-green. That allowed him a stress-free round on the greens. Despite an early-round lip-out, Casey didn't let that ruin the plot of today's story. the Englishman circled six birdies to offset a lone bogey. Casey will now rest up before heading to Spyglass Hill in round two.
Feb 8 - 4:58 PM

Paul Casey heads to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week on a roll, finishing 19th or better in each of his three PGA Tour events this season.

Casey hasn't been stateside yet, finishing seventh at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, 19th at The CJ Cup in South Korea and 11th at the WGC HSBC Champions in China. There's no reason to believe he'll have any kind of rust, even though we haven't seen him on this side of the pond yet this season. This will be his first appearance at Pebble Beach since the 2010 U.S. Open Championship when he finished 40th. Despite the fact he has not appeared in a Pro-Am on the Monterey Peninsula so far during his career, he has the sixth-best odds to win the event according to the latest Vegas lines.
Feb 8 - 1:18 AM

Paul Casey thrashed a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, posting 9-under 135 after 36 holes and moving 33 spots up the live leaderboard to T4.

That's three swings behind clubhouse pacesetter Thomas Pieters. Casey is a two-time winner of this event but couldn't really get it going in an opening 70. Today, he cashed in on the ideal scoring conditions with a morning lap of Abu Dhabi featuring five birdies and an eagle. Starting with an opening birdie at the par-5 10th, Casey continued his forward momentum with gains at 13 and 15 before surging with eagle-3 at 18. Coming home he ticked 2 and 4 before closing with five pars. "I didn't have great control of the golf ball the first day," he said later. "I missed a lot of shots left and right. Don't know why. I fixed it this morning on the range, stuck some sticks down, worked on the alignment a little bit. Today was really good. I dialled things in and five better."
Jan 19 - 3:54 AM

World No. 14 Paul Casey has opened the season with three straight top-20 finishes, including a T7 at the CIMB Classic and a T11 at the WGC-HSBC in his most recent action seven weeks ago.

The 40-year-old shows no signs of letting up and is as consistent as they come. He finished calendar-year 2016 at 14th in OWGR -- where he is now -- and made 23 of 24 cuts last season, highlighted by 17 top 25s and nine top 10s, both career highs. Additionally, the Englishman has also recorded five top-5 finishes in his last 11 starts, including three of four Playoffs events. One drawback however, is in the win column, with just the 2009 Shell Houston Open a lone TOUR title in 223 career events.

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.
