Casey eyes Ry­der Cup

The Mercury - - SPORT -

LON­DON: English­man Paul Casey is to re­join the Euro­pean Tour next sea­son in a bid to qual­ify for the 2018 Ry­der Cup team hav­ing ef­fec­tively ruled him­self out of the last match. The 40-year-old world No15’s de­ci­sion to play solely on the US PGA Tour meant he could not qual­ify for last year’s Ry­der Cup and he has not played in the pres­ti­gious team event since 2008. Ari­zon­abased Casey, who has won 13 times on the Euro­pean Tour, ap­peared in two tri­umphant Euro­pean teams, in 2004 and 2006, but failed to get a cap­tain’s pick at Celtic Manor in 2010 and was in­jured for the 2012 edi­tion.
