Casey pleased with opening round
Last updated: 8th November 2012
Paul Casey was delighted with his first-round 68 at the Barclays Singapore Open in difficult conditions.
With sweltering heat and high humidity cauing plenty of discomfort for the players, the Englishman was able to post a total that leaves him just two shots off Thomas Bjorn's leading pace.
Casey is still finding his form after a year that was heavily disrupted by a snowboarding injury he picked up at the tail end of 2011.
"I'm very happy with that," Casey said of his 68. "It's the first time I've played in this kind of humidity for a while. Just hanging on to the club with sweaty hands is the biggest problem.
"The golf has been very nice lately and I would love to sneak in a win before the end of the year.
"This is a difficult set-up - I don't think there's a wedge or sand-wedge into any of the par fours and there's a lot of thick rough. It's pretty much a ball-striker's paradise."
