Casey looking for second straight 'win' as Mickelson lurks at Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Paul Casey didn’t play the Saudi International last week, but he might have come out of the week as the real winner because of the stand he took.

Casey won much admiration for the statement he made.

Fellow PGA Tour pro Nick Watney told him as much when he saw Casey in the players’ lounge at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am early this week.

“He goes, `I think you won last week,’” Casey said. “It’s not about that, obviously, but it did make me chuckle.”

Casey moved in position to win a tournament on Sunday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
