Casey invited to World Match Play

Paul Casey has received a sponsors’ invite to compete at the

World Match Play Championship later this month.

The 48th-ranked Briton completes the field for the May 17-20

event at the Finca Cortesin golf course.

Casey says the tournament’s format suits him, especially since

he is out to impress Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal.

The 24-man field in the Spanish city of Casares features 15 of

the world’s top 60 golfers, including Sergio Garcia, Darren Clarke,

Martin Kaymer, Charl Schwartzel, Graeme McDowell, Paul Lawrie and

Retief Goosen.
