Victorious return for Casey in Dubai as Harrington finishes tied for sixth

Victorious return for Casey in Dubai as Harrington finishes tied for sixth”

Paul Casey landed his 15th career European Tour title with a dominant four-stroke victory at the Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club. The top continental men's golf circuit, for the second consecutive week (in as many New Year tournaments), speaks English. On the route of the Emirates GC (par 72), third step of the podium for the Scottish Robert MacIntyre (276, -12). "I'm always emotional with wins, but this one is such a prestigious event", he said. The history of this tournament is unbelievable and the list of winners is basically a Who's Who in world golf. I'm so over the moon.

"I am not anxious about him for sure", added the Dubliner, who was at the 18th green to offer his congratulations, quickly shrugging off a poor putting performance on US Open-style greens.

It was Casey's 15th European Tour crown and came 20 years after the first. One of the coolest trophies around. "I didn't enjoy my golf in 2020". They were awesome."I've realised how much I love doing what I do but in an environment with people watching".

"Myself, just like a lot of other people, it's not been enjoyable".

"I'm still learning. I'm still getting better". I'm still growing up.

The 43-year-old said: 'I've not enjoyed a minute of it.

Next week is the third straight event in the Middle East for the Euro Tour at the Saudi International at Royal Greens G&CC in Saudi Arabia. There will be also Dustin Johnson, world number 1.

"I didn't enjoy a year ago and I didn't enjoy my golf in 2020".

"I've worked incredibly hard over the last few months".

The victory boosts Casey's chances of being named in the team for September's Ryder Cup and captain Padraig Harrington was waiting at the finish to congratulate him on his victory but the Englishman says he wants to win his place in the team on merit.

'I didn't look at a leaderboard all day, admitted Casey. "I feel totally different".

'I'm extremely proud of the performance I put up this week, said Stone.

PATRICK REED is another man with the Ryder Cup on his mind and he also took a giant step towards clinching his place on Steve Stricker's American team with a five-shot victory at the Farmers Insurance Open.

In the US, Patrick Reed became caught up in yet another rules controversy on Saturday. I felt great throughout the day. In all he carded five birdies, including one at the last, and three bogeys in breezy conditions.
