Biography

Returned to form in 2013 with victory in the Irish Open, where he won by three shots with a final round 67. Had struggled for form the previous season, having broken his collarbone while snowboarding before the start of the 2012 campaign. Triumphed in the 2011 Volvo Golf Champions in Bahrain. Came close to winning his first WGC title in 2010 but was beaten in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play by compatriot Ian Poulter, and nearly won his first Major, only to finish tied third at The 139th Open Championship at St Andrews. In 2009 he landed the biggest victory of the year at The European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship, and made his breakthrough on the US PGA Tour by winning the Shell Houston Open. Would have been a contender for The 2009 Race to Dubai title but a rib injury sidelined him for three months, recurring at the end of the year to force him to withdraw from the Dubai World Championship. Notched his third Ryder Cup appearance in 2008 and also played in the Vivendi Seve Trophy and the World Cup, which he won with Poulter in 2004. In 2006 produced some spectacular golf in finishing second on the Order of Merit and winning The 2006 European Tour Golfer of the Year and Shot of the Year Awards. Won three times that year which included a record 10&8 victory over Shaun Micheel in the final of the World Match Play Championship. While at college at Arizona State became the first player to win three successive Pac-10 Championships. Victory in the 2000 Pac-10 Championship broke the scoring record held by Tiger Woods. In 2007 set up his own Paul Casey Foundation to help juniors at Foxhills GC where he grew up.
