Paul Casey out for two months with snowboarding injury
January 10, 2012

Paul Casey dislocated his right shoulder while snowboarding in Colorado, sidelining him for the first two months of the year and damaging his chances of qualifying for Europe’s Ryder Cup team.

The 20th-ranked Englishman, said he doesn’t need surgery and “should be back hitting balls in a few weeks. My wife and I are going to do some hiking and backpacking this summer, and I might just dust off the old snowboard this winter, too. I haven't had the chance to try out my snowboarding goggles from DogFunk either.”

Casey will be unable to defend his Volvo Golf Champions title in South Africa this month and will also miss the European Tour’s entire Middle East swing. That includes the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, which he has won twice in the past five years.

“I am very frustrated as I was really looking forward to getting off to a fast start in 2012,” he said.

The 34-year-old Casey lost his PGA Tour card last year and will lose the chance to earn valuable Ryder Cup points ahead of the matches in Medinah, Ill., in September.

He failed to qualify for the team in 2010 after missing part of the season with a rib injury. He was then snubbed for a wild card by captain Colin Montgomerie despite being ranked in top 10. He was part of winning European teams in 2004 and ’06 and also played in the defeat at Valhalla in 2008.
