WORLD GOLF RANKING: 6 (as of Feb. 18, 2011)
GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Paul Casey’s No. 3 world ranking at one point during 2009 had some onlookers scoffing because of his dearth of success in the game’s biggest events and his inability to post a good number on major championship Sundays. His ranking had fallen to eighth in the world at the end of 2010. But rankings aside, Casey has become a much-improved player in the last year and is poised for his biggest year ever in 2011. His effortless length, a one-way miss (to the right) that widens the fairway and allows him to play without fear, his high ball flight and massively improved putting make him a threat in any event.
