Paul Casey rejoins the PGA Tour

Paul Casey has revealed that his decision to rejoin the PGA Tour in 2008 was chiefly motivated by his desire to claim a Ryder Cup spot.

The Englishman, who is no stranger to the US following a golf scholarship to Arizona State University and a temporary membership to the US Tour in 2005, believes a stint on the PGA Tour will help him become a more polished player ahead of Europe's Ryder Cup defence.

With five members of the European team coming from the money list, and five coming from a list of world ranking points earned since September, Casey insists where he plays now no longer makes a difference.

"The way I want to get in the Ryder Cup is world ranking points," he revealed. "It doesn't matter where I play, I just need to play well. My intention is to play as much golf over here(USA) as possible.

"I want to play against Tiger (Woods), (Jim) Furyk and (Phil) Mickelson week in and week out," he added.

"I've got to test myself against those guys all the time. I want to win a major, at least one. And I think in order to raise my game, I've got to be here all the time."

With Casey more than likely eligible for the for the four majors and three World Golf Championships, the 30-year-old need only play four European tour events to keep his membership.
