Paul Casey Has What Tommy Fleetwood Needs

Dan KilbridgeGolfWeek: “This was more concerning than previous starts like a T-55 at Quail Hollow and T-23 at the Memorial Tournament because his ballstriking was mostly spot on those weeks. He just couldn’t make anything and ultimately switched putters ahead of the Quicken Loans National. Putting wasn’t the problem at Firestone. He wasn’t as sharp with his irons, he didn’t find the fairway as often as he did at Carnoustie and he didn’t have the same prowess with his wedges around the green. Going into the final round hoping to build momentum for the season’s final major, Woods went the opposite direction. A promising birdie-birdie start that energized the crowd didn’t last. He played the final 16 holes 5 over for another 18 holes to forget ahead of Bellerive. His final nine holes were tough to watch and included two double bogeys, at the par-4 14th and par-5 16th,  his first since the final-round double at No. 11 that ruined his chances at Carnoustie. He looked so close then, a break or two away from a 15th career major. He looked poised to give it another run in St. Louis. Woods never really got a chance to regroup after that, and it showed. But he fought hard to get in, and otherwise would have spent the week practicing back home in Jupiter, Fla. Four rounds in Akron probably made for better PGA Championship prep.”
