Casey to press Ryder Cup case
Thursday 24 June 2010
Paul Casey and Sergio Garcia will take a break from competing in America to return to the European Tour tomorrow for the first round of the BMW International Open.
Their primary concern is to get their games in shape for the Open, which starts at St Andrews on 17 July. However, they both have a second agenda.
England's Casey and Spain's Garcia are currently not in the frame to play against the Americans during the Ryder Cup which is being held at Celtic Manor in Wales in October.
The captain Colin Montgomerie also returns to action two and a half weeks after qualifying for The Open.
"It gives you belief – of course it does," he said. "I'll be watching the scoreboards [to see how the Ryder Cup candidates are faring], but I am here to win."
