The smart Englishman moved up to third place in the world rankings, his best position, after his acclaimed triumph at the 2009 BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth. Casey is one of the most likeable stars on the scene – with a strong penchant for adventure. He likes fast cars as much as extreme sports. At the beginning of the season he had to take a long break because he injured his shoulder while snowboarding. Right at the first tournament after his return he managed a hole-in-one at the Cadillac Championship in Miami. Learned is just learned.

Didn’t become a professional footballer because: “In the beginning I played both, but at eleven I realized that I could beat anyone in golf. and I can’t beat anyone in football.”
