The Outlook

This setup should be ripe for a potential Casey contention, as his propensity for being a high-ball hitter should help him attack some of these pins. With a career-best finish of T-4 in major championships, it might be unwise to pick him to win, but a top-10 prop could be a very smart play for a guy who’s played some of the best golf of his career this season.
