In the ongoing effort to identify talented golfers with the most back-handed of compliments, Paul Casey is without argument the greatest player in the world never to top-five in a major.
No. 10 in the world and consistently on the short list of potential contenders in the big ones, Casey last threatened to win a major all the way back at the 2004 Masters.
"It's gone very quickly, I must admit," said the affable Englishman of the six lean years since.
After tying for the low round of the day Saturday with a 67, Casey is the only guy within seven strokes of cruising leader Louis Oosthuizen at the British Open.
