IRVING, Texas – You know things are going nicely when a lone 4 is your worst score for nine holes.
“Walking off 18, [my caddie] was struggling to add it up,” he said. “Par-35 threw him. He said, ‘I think that's 28.’ Genuinely I had no concept of what I was doing out there.”
Asked whether he’s ever shot 27 for nine holes before, Casey answered, “On par-3 courses, I think.”
Paired with an opening-nine 36, Casey’s 63 got him into contention going into the weekend.
