Paul Casey expects after winning his third title in 16 22, he could carry his good form into the BMW PGA Championship.

Casey birdied the 16th and 17th holes at a stunning finale to finish one shot at Matthias Schwab Bob MacIntyre and Bernd Ritthammer.
His attention has already turned to the PGA Championship at Wentworth, which he won at 2009 although it’s Casey first win on European soil since the KLM Open in 2014.
“I’m very excited, I really like that golf program,” said Casey. “I’ve got two victories around there [he also won the World Match Play Championship at Wentworth in 2006].
“You talk about the European Open and watching it as a kid; Wentworth is the place it all started for me.”
Casey began the one stroke behind Ritthammer and MacIntyre but pulled apparent to the home stretch with all the sixth and fifth birdies.
“It was fine to make the putts when it counted,” said Casey, who committed his 14th European Seminar title to the late Gordon Brand Jnr.
“That really was the secret this week. The ball has been excellent. I gave myself that is obviously my power and a awful lot of chances, and I managed to maintain this tricky golf course in check.
“I volunteered at this occasion at Walton Heath in 1991 – as a standard-bearer – walking around the golf program. Walton Heath isn’t far from where I grew up as a kid, I never believed I’d be sitting here with the decoration, which is very, very trendy.
“I’ve been blessed to win at Wentworth, and to acquire this one feels very unique. We had some fantastic players in the specialty, and the players pushed us older men .
“I feel like healthy at 42 as I have ever felt. I’ve got a lot of excitement and an understanding of my golfing game. I enjoy working hard for this and the pursuit of being as great as I could be.”
