British Open 2010: Why Paul Casey Will Win the British Open
Over the last three rounds of the 2010 British Open, Paul Casey has played very well and has had a great performance. If he keeps this up, he will be the winner at the end of the tournament.
Today is the fourth and final round of the British Open.
At the end of yesterday, Casey was No. 2 on the leaderboard and was only behind the No. 1 Louis Oothuizen by a total of four strokes.
Because of Casey’s skill and ability, he has been able to put himself in a good position to stay ahead of the rest of the competition, and advance to take over Oothuizen’s spot at No. 1 in the tournament.
The next several slides explain why Casey has what it takes to be the winner of the British Open.
Performance in the Last Two Years
Casey hasn’t had the best track record for winning in the last two years.
Despite having ranked low at the U.S Open and not playing at all in the Masters, Casey has done quite well so far in this tournament.
While some would like to point out that Casey hasn’t usually been one of the top players of any tournament, that record is turning around in the 2010 British Open as Casey works hard to stay on top of the leaderboard and to come out of the Open victorious.
Casey has so far proven that even though his past would point out that he wouldn’t even finish in the top 10, he has the drive and dedication to take him all the way to the top.
He has shown that he has the deciation needed to win.
Casey has done a great job of placing the ball on the course so far in the British Open.
He has been able to place the ball almost exactly where he wants it every time he has taken on another hole on the course.
Due to this skill, he has had low stroke counts in each round of the British Open so far.
If he can continue to keep the ball moving in the direction he needs it to, he has a good chance at moving up the leaderboard and coming out of the British Open victorious.
Casey has had one of the lowest stroke counts in each round of the British Open so far.
His scores for the previous three rounds have been 69, 69, and 67 for a total of 205.
Casey has had 16 birdies and has come in at par on 35 holes in the last three rounds.
In addition to staying right on course or a little better than right on course, Casey has managed to only have three bogies, all of which happened in the first two rounds of the British Open.
If Casey can keep his stroke count as low as it has been, or even lower than it has been, in the last three rounds he has a very good chance of coming out of round four on top.
Performance so far in the British Open
So far in the British Open, Casey’s best performance has come in round three.
Round three showed that Casey had the drive and ability to keep him not only on top of the leaderboard, but also in a position to come out of the British Open with a victory.
He finished round three with a total stoke count of 67 and no bogies.
His other two rounds were good performances, with each coming in at under a 70 stoke count, but they were not quite as good as his third round performance.
If Casey can play again in the fourth round the way he did in the third round or even better than he did in the third round, he will be an unstoppable force on the course.
Throughout the British Open, Casey has looked a little better on the course every day. If this trend continues, he is sure to be the victor of the 2010 British Open.
