Paul Casey Gets Closer to Victory

Paul CaseyFinishing the ISPS HANDA Perth International in the fifth place with a tie, Paul Casey is quite confident that victory is just close. The event was held at the Lake Karrinyup, in Western Australia.

Scoring at 67, this is the first European Tour where Casey landed on the top-five position after placing fourth in the 2011 WGC-HSBC Championship. The best finish Casey had on the previous 2012 European Tour games was a tie at the 25th place. He gained momentum after finishing in the third place at an event hosted by the Asian Tour.

The 35-year-old English golfer, who is also a former world number three, foresees bright games in the succeeding events after sharing the fifth place at Perth. “This is the best I’ve felt in probably a few years, and the form is coming around really nicely. With the form I’m starting to show, it’s a case of wanting to be out there, play as much as I can and I feel it’s not going to be long before I’m back in the winner’s circle,” says Casey. After having suffered from a dislocated shoulder due to a snowboarding accident, he has had a difficult year and dropped to world number 133.

The 11-time European Tour winner is more confident now after having recuperated and believes that he can finish among the top 60 in the Race to Dubai tournament. The event is also the season-ending game of the DP World Tour Championship.

“I’m still not in Dubai but the goal is to win before the end of the year – simple as that. If I win next week, I don’t know if that gets me in HSBC, it might, I don’t know. A win before the end of the year, because the three I’m playing, BMW, Singapore and Hong Kong, they are all great events, and certainly BMW and Singapore are big money, as well. So I think ignore trying to get into Dubai; just try and win. That solves every problem,” says Casey.
