Casey gets amazing hole in one

Published 23/09/2006

An amazing hole in one by Paul Casey, the first in the Ryder Cup since Howard Clark in 1995, has earned him and David Howell a 5 and 4 victory over Stewart Cink and Zack Johnson.

Already five up with five to play, the European pair knew victory was surely

only a matter of time, but Casey made certain in incredible fashion.

Ignoring captain Ian Woosnam's advice on club selection, Casey chose a

four-iron and struck a magnificent shot which landed right on line and rolled

inexorably into the cup for only the fifth hole in one in Ryder Cup history.

That meant Cink did not even need to hit his tee shot, and was even

technically conceded a hole in one as well as it did not matter to the result of

the match.

It put Europe 9 1/2-4 1/2 ahead
