Career

Casey was born in Cheltenham, but moved to Weybridge at the age of six. After attending Cleves School, Weybridge and then Hampton School, he took a golf scholarship at Arizona State University (one of an increasing number of young British golfers taking tertiary scholarships in the USA as sports scholarships are not part of the British university system). His amateur career was distinguished. In the U.S. he was the first man to win three consecutive Pac-10 Championships (1998, 1999 and 2000). In 2000 he broke the championship scoring record held by Tiger Woods (18 under par) with a 23 under par 265. Back on the other side of the Atlantic he won the English Amateur Championship in 1999 and 2000. He was also a member of Great Britain and Ireland’s winning 1999 Walker Cup team, where he was only the third player in seventy seven years to record four victories without a single defeat.
