Casey makes his case for Ryder Cup inclusion at Canadian Open

| 22.07.2010

There are a host of big names on display at the RBC Canadian Open, and Paul Casey is one of many players with the Ryder Cup on his mind at the event.

Casey finished tied third at the Open Championship last Sunday, and he is part of a three-ball group with Jason Bohn and Stephen Ames.

At 11/10, Casey is the favourite to emerge victorious in this triumvirate, and his form at St Andrews last week suggests that he could be well worth backing.

With Europe captain Colin Montgomerie naming his vice-captains this week, the Ryder Cup is at the forefront of the minds of golf players and fans alike.

Europe are 8/13 to regain the trophy when they meet the USA at the Welsh resort of the Celtic Manor, and Casey is hoping to be a major player in Montgomerie’s team.

In the preceding group at the Canadian Open, Ricky Barnes is 9/4 to beat Michael Letzig and Tom Gillis.

Barnes is 10th in the US Ryder Cup standings, and a good performance in Canada would boost the 29-year-old’s chances of representing his country at the Celtic Manor in October.

Mike Weir is another notable participant at this event, and the left-hander is 2/1 to edge his three-ball rivals, Fred Couples and Sean O’Hair.

Who could upstage Casey in Canada? Bohn is 13/5 to win their three-ball contest. See the full RBC Canadian Open market.
