    Casey had a very successful college career while attending Arizona State University. He was the first person to capture three Pac 10 Championships in a row. He also broke the scoring record which was previously held by Tiger Woods. He was part of the victorious Great British and Irish Walker Cup team that was victorious in 1999 with Casey going unbeaten. After graduating in 2000, Casey turned pro. He started playing on the European Tour in 2001 and won in his 11th event on the Tour, the Gleneagles Scottish PGA Championship. He would end his rookie season 22nd on the money list and as Rookie of the Year.

    Casey would win twice in 2003, the ANZ Championship and the Benson & Hedges International Open. He had a total of twelve top 10 finishes on his way to ending the year 6th on the money list. Casey spent some time playing in the US in 2004 and finished a very good 6th place at his first US Masters. He would be a member of the victorious European Ryder Cup team that year. He would win the World Cup for England with his partner Luke Donald to cap off 2004. Despite winning three times in 2006 (including the HSBC World Match Play Championship where he emphatically defeated Shaun Micheel 10&8 in the final), Casey was overtaken by Padraig Harrington in the final event of the year to finish 2nd on the money list. This is his highest finish on the Order of Merit to date.

    In both 2007 and 2009 Casey won the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. It was also in 2009 that Casey won his first and only PGA Tour title to date at the Shell Houston Open after a play-off with J.B. Holmes. He captured the flagship event of the European Tour that year at the BMW Championship at Wentworth and would be 5th on the money list despite only playing 14 events on the European Tour. Casey has struggled with injury in recent years and has struggled with poor runs of form. He won his 13th and most recent European Tour title in 2014 at the KLM Open. In 2015, Casey has lost in two play-offs on the PGA Tour, at the Northern Trust Open to James Hahn and the Travelers Championship to Bubba Watson.
