WITB – Casey claims victory using mixed bag

Paul Casey Witb 1

Paul Casey claimed the Porsche European Open title thanks to his laser-like accuracy from the tee and when approaching the greens.

The Englishman’s first win on the European Tour in five years comes after he successfully held off Bernd Ritthamer, Matthias Schwab and Robert MacIntyre in a thrilling final round, claiming the title by one shot.

• The silver lining for Robert MacIntyre after latest near-miss

Casey, who has been without an equipment contact since Nike left the hardware market, chooses to play a mixed set that has given him great success over the last few years.

He opts to play with TaylorMade’s M4 driver that was released at the beginning of 2018 and an M1 three wood that is now almost three years old.

He used both to great effect over the course of the four rounds, ranking eight in the driving accuracy stats and 12th in the driving distance starts, averaging 292.9 yards around the incredibly long Green Eagle Golf Course.

Also key to his triumph in Germany was his stellar iron play. Using his Mizuno MP-5 blades, that are now over four years old, he ranked second in Greens in Regulation, finding the putting surface 81.9% of the time.

He also carries an MP-25 3-iron and a JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro 4-iron.

His wedges are a little more up-to-date, choosing to game two of the latest Titleist Vokey SM7 wedges and a prototype Vokey lob wedge.

Rounding out the 42-year-old’s bag is a Scotty Cameron putter and the 2019 Titleist Pro V1 golf ball.
