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.

World No. 18 Paul Casey hung up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach 7-under 273, up three spots to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey finished T5, nine back of champion Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 61.

This was the Englishman's 13th Bridgestone, ninth top 25 and third top 10 with a best of T4 in 2006. Overall, it was his 43rd WGC event and 15th top 10. After opening in 70-69-67, the 40-year-old began in solo 9th on 4-under, five back of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.832 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in SG: Approach with a cumulative 8.338. Casey squared holes 7, 9 and 12, missing two par-savers from inside of seven feet, overshadowed by six birdies at 2-4, 6, 11 (from 15'5") and 18. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR but a dismal -1.967 SG: Putting, currently 65th (of 76 players) in SGP with a four-day total of -2.308.

World No. 18 Paul Casey bogeyed his final two holes but still carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone to post 4-under 206, up four spots to T9 with play still in progress.

After opening in 70-69, the 40-year-old began T13 on 1-under, six adrift of 36-hole leader Jimmy Walker. On just three (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he was 5-under thru 16 holes, outpacing bogey-5 at nine (3-putt from 54'2") with birdies at Nos. 2, 5, 12 (from 35'8") and 14-16, before the bogey-bogey finish, that latter after taking two to get out of a greenside bunker. The Englishman posted -0.593 SG: Off-the-Tee and -0.109 SG: Around-the-Green, but 2.920 SG: Approach and 1.323 SG: Putting, taking 1.692 putts per GIR.

Paul Casey makes his 13th trip back to Firestone Country Club, preparing for this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

The Englishman has been steady at Firestone CC, posting nine top 30s in 12 starts. One of those rare duds came in 2009 when he withdrew during round one due to a rib injury. Given the demanding nature of the golf course, it makes sense that an all-around specialist like Casey would excel on the tough track. Also in his favor is season-long form as he arrives with seven straight top 30s, with three of his last four starts going for T11 or better. Casey still has just one PGA TOUR title to his name (2009 Shell Houston Open) but he's playing great golf in 2017, meaning it wouldn't be too shocking if he found his way back into the winner's circle very soon.

Paul Casey rallied late to record a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during the finale of this week's Open Championship, closing his tournament at 3-under 277, good for a spot right on the cusp of a top-10 finish.

The Englishman played 10-under par for rounds 1, 3, and 4 but gave too many strokes back during his birthday round on Friday (+7). Today he traded a birdie with a bogey before making the turn. It was all pars from there until he reached the par 5s, circling birdies on both of them while adding a birdie in between at the par-4 16th, as well. Before the week, Casey called Royal Birkdale the best course in the Open rota and would later call it the best links golf course in the world. He clearly enjoys the layout but one bad round cost him a chance at contention this week.

Paul Casey enjoyed his walk around Royal Birkdale during round one of The 146th Open, leaving the course with a 4-under-par 31-35=66 to his name, just one stroke shy of the early co-leaders.

Casey spaced out a trio of birdies on the outward nine (Nos. 1, 4, and 7) before making the turn at 3-under 31. The Englishman would trade two more birdies with a lone bogey on his way into the house, showcasing elite ball-striking throughout the round. On the day, he split nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens. After the round, Casey called Royal Birkdale the best links golf course in the world. A bit of a bold statement, but certainly a testament to his comfort level this week. Casey should stick around near the top of the board, especially if he can catch fire with the flat stick over the next three rounds.

World No. 16 Paul Casey bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap on 9-under 271, down one place into a three-way T5, three adrift of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After kicking off in 68-68-66, the 39-year-old began T4 on 8-under, four back of Spieth. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he striped 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, No. 1 in driving accuracy at 80.36 percent (45/56). The Englishman gained 1.853 strokes off-the-tee but lost 1.129 strokes around-the-green and 1.296 on-the-green, taking 31 total putts. He circled four birdies at Nos. 2 (from 23'0"), 6, 12 and 15, slightly outpacing bogey-5 at 3 and double bogey-6 at 10 after taking four to get on the surface. Casey missed four scoring tries from inside of 12 feet. It's his 11th top 25 of the season in 17 starts, fifth top 10 and second top 5, and his third top 25 at the Travelers in three attempts, second top 10 and second top 5 (P2/2015).

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 4-under-par 35-31=66 on Day 3 of the Travelers Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 8-under 202, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T4 and matching the clubhouse lead with C.T. Pan and David Lingmerth. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T4, four back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

After opening in twin 68s, the 39-year-old piped 11 (of 14) fairways and conjured 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.741 strokes off-the-tee, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.266. He lost 0.602 strokes approaching-the-green but gained 2.158 around-the-green and 0.973 on-the-green. The Arizona State product opened with six straight pars before squaring a lone bogey-5 at seven, and then played his final 11 holes in 5-under, circling Nos. 8, 10, 13, 15 and 17. His split on four conventional birdies included a 30-footer for birdie-2 at 8, adding a chip-in 3 at the 10th from 16'1" away. Casey has one TOUR win in 212 career events, the 2009 Houston Open (as 54-hole co-leader) 135 starts ago.

World No. 16 Paul Casey takes his talents back to Cromwell, Connecticut, for his third appearance at this week's Travelers Championship.

The Englishman arrives in a run of great form, posting top 30s in each of his last five starts. That includes a 26th-place finish last week at Erin Hills where he shared the 36-hole lead before fading over the weekend. Casey lost in a playoff during his 2015 Travelers debut and returned with a T17 last year (sitting at T6 heading into the finale). The Englishman currently ranks 3rd on TOUR in strokes gained approach-the-green which makes him an elite play in all fantasy formats this week once you combine that with his current form and good course history.

54-hole co-leader Paul Casey put it in reverse in his third round at the U.S. Open, tumbling from T1 to T17 after a 3-over 38-37=75 left him at 4-under 212.

A 75 won't always kill you from that position in a U.S. Open but scoring is unusually low at Erin Hills this week and the Englishman now finds himself eight shots behind leader Brian Harman. It all started smoothly enough as he holed from inside four feet for an opening birdie to reach 8-under. But at the 516-yard third, Casey pushed his approach into the deep stuff, whiffed his third, chunked out across the green with his fourth and needed three more shots to get down. He followed that triple bogey-7 with another dropped shot at 4 but kept in the game with four pars and birdie on the rest of his front nine. But, needing a surge on the back, he stalled again with bogey at 10 and then could get nothing going at all and parred his way to the clubhouse to end a hugely disappointing day. Almost certainly, Casey's bid for a first major will have to wait.

Paul Casey swallowed a triple-bogey 7 early in his round but recovered nicely to manage a 1-under-par 33-38=71 during day two of the U.S. Open Championship, grabbing the early 36-hole clubhouse lead on 7-under 137. UPDATE: With R2 play completed, Casey is in a four-way T1, his fourth career 36-hole lead/co-lead in 212 career starts; previously 1-for-3 in converting (2009, Shell Houston Open).

Casey opened his week with a strong 6-under 66 on Thursday. He returned to Erin Hills this morning and carded two bogeys and a triple over his first six holes. The triple bogey came at the par-5 14th, finding a lot of trouble while trying to hack out of the fescue. Instead of sulking, Casey responded with a mid-round rally, circling five straight birdies starting with a 12'11" birdie splash at the 17th and ending with a 10'3" putt at the par-4 third hole. His putter has been serving him well, ranking T4 in number of total putts taken thus far, just 53 through two rounds. If this lead manages to hold it will be Casey's first 36-hole lead/co-lead in a major championship. The Englishman has also never lead after R3, either, as he continues his search for his first win in a major championship.

World No. 14 Paul Casey cruised to a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the 117th U.S. Open Championship, finding himself one off the torrid pace set by Rickie Fowler this morning.

Casey fired out of the gate with a 32-yard hole out for eagle at the par-5 first hole and followed that up with a 4'2" birdie at the second. The Englishman would trade four more birdies with two bogeys from that point on. It was all about high-quality iron shots today as Casey gave himself six birdie looks from inside nine feet, on top of that 32-yard hole out. The U.S. Open has not been an ATM for Casey over the years, collecting just two top 25s in 13 tries. This will be the second time he's positioned himself inside the top 15 after R1 at the event, co-leading the 2010 edition before fading to T40 by week's end.

World No. 14 Paul Casey labored to a 3-over-par 35-38=73 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to conclude on 4-under 276, down eight spots to a two-way T10, six adrift of champion Kevin Kisner, who shot 66.

After kicking off in 69-66-68, the 39-year-old began in a two-way T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, one better than Kisner. Playing out of the final threesome, he landed eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.161 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.498 around-the-green. The Englishman circled a lone birdie at the par-4 third from 13'7" and then played his final 15 in birdie-less 3-over, squaring bogey-5s at 7, 10 (3-putt from 40'9"), 14 and 15. He missed five putts from inside of 10 feet contributing to a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR, -1.959 SG: Putting and 33 total putts. This was Casey's third top 25 at the DDI in five tries and second top 10 (5th/2009). It's his 10th top 25 of the season in 15 starts, fifth consecutive, and fourth top 10.

World No. 14 Paul Casey crafted a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach 7-under 203, up three spots to T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's final threesome.

After opening in 69-66, the 39-year-old began in a 4-way T5 on 5-under, one shy of a foursome of overnight leaders. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he went out in birdie-less 1-over, but awoke to come home in 3-under. The Englishman landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.139 strokes tee-to-green. He squared bogeys at eight and 12 (failed scrambles), overshadowed by four birdies at 10, 11, 13 and 18, three from inside of five feet and a walk-off 3 from 23'2". Casey recorded 1.667 putts per GIR though -0.139 SG: Putting. He's chasing his second TOUR title in 211 career events, joining his maiden win at the 2009 Shell Houston Open where he was a 54-hole co-leader and won in a playoff.
