Casey Wins at Abu Dhabi
Well, I said yesterday that it could be a close final round and it turned out to be pretty exciting coming down the stretch. Casey lost his considerable lead on the back nine and ended up winning by just one shot over Martin Kaymer and Louis Oosthuizen. The winning score was -21, Kaymer and Oosthuizen were at -20. Oosthuizen's final round was a 64 and Kaymer shot a 67. Again, yesterday I said someone could challenge with a low round. Although, I said it might be Kaymer. If I could spell Oosthuizen without having to write it down every time from the European PGA Tour website, I might have predicted him to have a good round. Some other scores: Sergio shot up from a T20 place to T8 with a 64 in the final round. Rory McIlroy finished T5 with a round of 65. And Danny Willett also finished T8 with a 67 and he gets into Qatar. As he's a rookie, apparently he's having to get into events by way of top ten finishes. So, great for him!
