Joined the PGA Tour in late April as a Special Temporary Member and earned privileges for the 2005 season via making the 2004 Ryder Cup Team. A three-time individual winner on The European Tour International Schedule, Casey found team golf to his taste in 2004. Having finished a commendable tied sixth on his debut in the Masters Tournament, en route to qualifying for The Ryder Cup, he played a pivotal role at Oakland Hills CC with David Howell, securing the final hole par which earned the Europeans a full point against Jim Furyk and Chad Campbell. In his final event in Seville, he and Luke Donald edged out Spain - with Casey again holing the winning putt - as England captured the WGC - World Cup. Secured his card as an Affiliate Member of the Tour in 2001, shortly before winning his maiden title in the Gleneagles Scottish PGA Championship in August. Finishing 22nd on the Order of Merit helped him win the 2001 Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year. Coached by Peter Kostis, his amateur highlight came when he was one of the stalwarts of Great Britain and Ireland's Walker Cup victory at Nairn in 1999, becoming one of only three players in 77 years to record four victories without a defeat - recording two foursomes victories with the aforementioned Donald...He won the English Amateur Championship in 1999 and 2000 and in his American college phase, won the Pac-10 Championship in 1998, 1999 and 2000. Victory in the 2000 Pac-10 Championship broke the scoring record held by Tiger Woods (18-under-par) with a 23 under par 265. By winning he became the first player to win three successive Pac-10 Championships. Other records he has broken include the scoring average for the Arizona State University, previously held by Phil Mickelson..
