English golfer Paul Casey
has won his 14th European Tour title, winning the Porsche European Open on Sunday.
This marks the 42-year-old’s 20th career win and his second of 2019, after claiming victory at the Valspar Championship. Casey began Sunday’s final round 1-shot behind the leaders but quickly got to work. Producing a flawless 6-under 66, that included six birdies and no bogeys.
“I get emotional at every victory but this year has been so fantastic,” Casey said afterwards. “This is an incredibly prestigious trophy that has a lot of history to it on the European Tour so I’m over the moon.”
On an interesting side note, Casey was almost the victim of a weird rules infraction during his second round on Friday involving a bug. Luckily, this odd rule didn’t stick as the golfer hadn’t intentionally violated it. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, watch below and let Casey school you on Rule 11.2b.
