Paul Casey: Always the bridesmaid never the bride

Paul Casey knows what it's like to stand by in his golf clothing and watch someone else lift the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship trophy at his expense.

The Englishman has experienced defeat twice in the final of the tournament, but this time he is hoping to go one better.

In 2009 he was defeated by Australian Geoff Ogilvy, and the following year he lost out to Ian Poulter with victory in sight.

But the 33-year-old has honed his match play game and believes he is ready to take on the world's best at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Dove Mountain, US.

First up for Casey is Australian left-handed Richard Green, a man with a reputation for being able to keep his cool under immense pressure.

Yesterday (Monday February 21st), Casey told reporters that he felt it could be his time to take the title.

"I think I've always been a player who's been fairly aggressive on the golf course," he said.

"I make a lot of birdies and then occasionally will throw in the odd mistake. I did that again last week (at the Northern Trust Open). I made a triple bogey on the 10th on Saturday, when my ball got stuck in a palm tree."

But he insists he is ready to eradicate the mistakes as he seeks to claim the prestigious crown.
