GBC Wind Performance Rating: ⭐⭐⭐​⭐

GBC Pressure Rating: ⭐⭐⭐​⭐


Paul is a multiple European Tour champion and also has three PGA tour titles. He now plays most of his golf Stateside. He had a relatively quiet 2021 apart from his win at the Dubai Desret Classic. 

In 2019, Casey won the Porsche European Open and the Valspar Championship - he defended the Valspar after winning it in 2018. Casey was in a habit of throwing away tournaments in his grasp but has since become more clinical in the mix.

Casey is an extremely solid driver of the ball which means he can contend anywhere. He will be aiming to bag his maiden major in the next few years before he starts to decline.

Pressure Performance Analysis

We have set his GBC Pressure Performance Rating to ⭐⭐⭐​⭐ following a number of strong performances in a row.

March 2022
➖ Casey Started a couple fo shots back at the weather affected PLAYERS Championship and shot 69 to finish two back of winner Smith. It should be noted he landed in a plug mark on the fairway on 16 which meant he had to lay up so an extremely unlucky break.

July 2021 
➖ Two shots back (3rd) at the men's Olympic Golf Competition, Paul would shoot a final round 68 to remain 3rd (although he lost the bronze medal playoff).

February 2021 
➖ Paul trailed by three shots with a round to go at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.  A 68 saw him move up from 7th to 5th.

January 2021 
✅ Took a 1 shot lead into the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic and shot 70 to win by 4 shots. It was an excellent performance.

August 2020 
✅ Started the final round of the PGA Championship 2 shots behind Dustin Johnson. Shot 66 to finish 2nd to Collin Morikawa who shot 64, a decent effort.

September 2019 
✅ Began final round 1 shot back of Bernd Ritthammer and Robert McIntyre. Shot 66 to win by 1 shot over both who shot 68.

March 2019 
✅ Led by 1 shot over Dustin Johnson at Valspar Championship. Shot 72 to win by 1 shot over Jason Kokrak.


Stays Hot 
Paul recorded sequences of 4-6-7 and 4-5 in 2021 to prove he is a confidence player and should be supported when hot.

Goes Well When 
Last 5 wins have all been between -8 and -14. Unlike the earlier part of his career, appears to play his best golf when it's not a birdie fest.

Significant Quotes

The American Express, 2021
"I've been working on lots. I've been working on lots. It's probably the best -- what have I been working on? I don't know, everything, basically. But it's been one of the better off-seasons I've had in a long, long time, and you never know what that sort of parlays into for a season, but I feel really good about the golf game. So we'll see."
