The English player was on level playing ground with Jason Kokrak with eight under on the 29th hole, but the American’s bogey saw Casey needing a par four at the last in order to claim the win. He found a bunker straight off tee, but managed to hit the green from there, and went on to two putt for a first win since his victory last year.
