Paul Casey is trying to be the first Englishmen to win open after Sir Nick Faldo in 1992.
Paul casey – the Englishmen was happy and satisfied even after he left behind by the runaway leader Louis Oosthuizen by just 4 shots. He hits bogey-free 67 on Saturday that matched the low round by parring the 9 holes. He is full of enthusiasm to go for finals at St. Andrews, Scotland. This will be his first major title after a messy rib muscle injury in 2009.
“Even going into early this year, I was very unsure of how things were going to go,” he said. “Sitting here right now, I’m ecstatic.”Even right now, occasionally I feel the muscles in the ribs. In no way do they affect my golf, but it’s a small reminder that, quite often you take for granted a lot of things, and nothing is better than an Open Championship at the Home of Golf.
“So I’m loving it. I’m loving the fact I’m playing absolutely great golf and I’m four shots behind Louis! I’m having a great time and I’m going to go out there tomorrow and enjoy myself and have a good attitude.”
These were the words of casey when he was asked about the title-ship.
When he was asked whether to follow Sir Nick Faldo , the last Englishman to win a major in the US Masters in 1996, he replied “I’m not sure I’m able to explain what it would mean.
“It is the ultimate for me, probably even more so because links golf is something I’ve struggled with.
“I’ve always felt my best opportunity has been somewhere like Augusta with my ball flight. I’ve worked very hard to give myself the opportunity to compete in an Open Championship, and therefore the opportunity to win, as I’ve now got.
“And Sir Nick’s achievements, if I can emulate just a fraction of what he’s achieved…he’s certainly a hero of mine and I would love to replicate what he did here.”
