Golf – Casey rates Augusta chances

Paul Casey is excited about his prospects of making a challenge at the upcoming Masters at Augusta, having claimed a one-shot victory at the Valspar Championship. The Englishman edged out Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed in a tense finish at Palm Harbor, with Casey shooting a final round 65 to secure only the second PGA Tour win of his career to date. And he was thrilled with his efforts, especially with the first Major of 2018 just around the corner. He told reporters: "I'm excited and not only for my game, but the fact that Tiger's playing great. "I'm a fan of golf and to pip him is very special. He'll be on top form when we get there (Augusta) and I'm looking forward to it. I think I've got a good chance." Casey, who has finished inside the top six at the Masters in each of the last three years, is 25/1 with bet365 to triumph at Augusta this year.
