    Re: Paul Casey, is he too negative?

    In my experience he's articulate polite and was happy to give time to others.

    But that would seem to not fit with the narrative of some on here.

    FWIW I had a similar experience a couple of times with Nick Faldo but again that wouldn't fit with the haters.

    We tend to make snap decisions on well known people based on a brief encounter. I think Robert Rock is great because at one tournament he smiled at me and asked how my day was going. Every other golfer had blanked the spectators all day but he showed a human side. He could be horrible, don't think so from what I have heard, but from my 5 second encounter I follow his results. Irrational. Equally a negative encounter or perceived slight has the opposite effect.

    Casey often seems to get a bad press but it is good to hear some positives on here as well.

    And there is the case in point. His choices meant that he wasn't (and isn't) eligible to play.

    Re: Paul Casey, is he too negative?

    I like Casey but he does seem to slip away when in contention to many times, would not surprise me if he won a major at some point.

    Dont get some of the harsh words that some on hear post that have never met the guy.

    I love this, Casey's in the last 30 in the Fed Ex cup playing with the best in the world. I would love to be Mr Thursday, an arrogant knob playing at that level. Move along.

    Met him a few times and he has always come across as a pretty decent bloke. Granted, they've only been fleeting encounters.

    As for the snap decisions bit, did see Patrick Reed on practise day at The Open this year. What a change in perception I have of him. From what I'd heard and read I had the impression he was a brash and abrasive typical yank. In reality he was nice, down to earth and was brilliant with my baby daughter. Signed a few things for us, stopped and chatted for about a minute (doesn't sound long but seemed like much longer as it was in between holes). Then when he passed us on the next hole he stopped in the fairway, saw who it was and waved at us shouting my daughters name. Simple touch that made her laugh and made me a new Patrick Reed fan.

    Think that there's still a bit of resentment that he wasn't picked for 2010 even though he was 9th in the word at the time. I can kind of see it his way though, for some the Ryder Cup is not the be all and end all of golf and there are other things he may want to focus on instead.
    Hit a little white ball round a field into a small hole. Repeat.
