Paul Casey: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
It's been a crazy few years for Casey. Not long ago he was among the best European players on the planet, but his fall was hard and fast. It looks like he's on his way back though and there's definitely some value here. Casey played just above the minimum number events last year, so the upside is a bit limited, then again, his price tag is pretty low, so the risk is limited as well. He's worth a look in salary cap leagues and should find his way into the first 10 rounds of a draft.
Casey won't be fully exempt this season, but he'll get enough opportunities to make some money this season through sponsor's exemptions and possibly his World Golf Ranking if he can improve his rank overseas. Casey's been off his game for a few years now, but his earnings number is so small, there's no reason to not take him in a salary cap format. In draft leagues, he'll probably go undrafted.
Casey was well off his game in 2010, but there's no reason to think it was anything more than just a bad year. Actually, you could probably put some of the blame on a bad toe, but let's just say that he had a hiccup and he's ready to move on; it happens. He's only a year removed from a $3 million season, and Casey should, at minimum, double his earnings from last season.
A top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR money list was not enough to earn a spot on the European Ryder Cup team for Casey last year. That goes to show how difficult it is to crack that squad, but more important for Casey, it means he still must improve. That mindset could be very dangerous for the rest of the PGA TOUR in 2011, as Casey has as much talent as anyone outside of Tiger Woods. The one drawback on Casey is his schedule. He only played 17 events last season, but that could have been due to playing more events on the European Tour in an effort to gain membership on the European Ryder Cup team. With that out of the equation this season perhaps Casey will play more in the States in 2011. If so, he should improve his 2010 numbers. If not, he should, at minimum, match his 2010 numbers. Outside of driving accuracy, Casey was among the top 50 in almost every statistical measure on the PGA TOUR last season. He is to stats as Steve Stricker is to earnings.
Casey was the runner-up at the WGC match play event last March and followed that up with his first PGA TOUR victory at the Shell Open in early April, but he was relatively quiet following his impressive start to the season. Casey only played in 12 PGA events last season due to an injury, so expect that number to jump as long as he stays healthy in 2010. There are still some injury questions surrounding Casey, but he could turn out to be a nice fantasy pick if can repeat his early season success from last year. Casey, who was ranked 41st at the end of 2008, moved up to seventh in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.
Casey joined the PGA Tour last season after a failed initial attempt despite success in Europe - and had a strong season playing a lot of events on both shores. He could see an even better '09 supported by his improved putting. Casey finished 41st in the top-50 listed in the final 2008 Official World Golf Rankings. Casey withdrew from the Bridgestone Invitational after six holes of the first round citing a rib muscle problem dating back to pre-British Open days. He received $80,000, non-official money.
Casey's struggles last year can be attributed to the comments he made about Americans the year prior. Now that those comments have slowly faded from the consciousness of most, Casey should be ready to focus on golf. He is fully exempt from his 2004 Ryder Cup appearance, so as long as he chooses to play over here, he should do better than last year.
While he'll continue to play primarily on the European Tour, Casey lives in Arizona with his girlfriend and wants to play a few more events on this side of the pond in 2004.
