Paul Casey made the difficult decision not to take up European Tour membership for 2016, locking himself out of a potential spot on the European Ryder Cup team. After all, to be on the squad, a player must be a member of the European Tour in good standing — it’s a protection mechanism for the Tour, which runs the Ryder Cup when it’s on European soil.
However, just because the Englishman recognized that the Tour’s changes to its membership requirements weren’t real changes — at least for him — and he chose to focus on the PGA Tour, it doesn’t mean that Casey doesn’t want to play on the Ryder Cup stage again.
“I mean, certainly, a decision I made to focus in the States, I feel has paid dividends. It’s made things a lot simpler for me,” Casey said at the WGC-HSBC Champions. “But there are still desires to play in another Ryder Cup and play some more stuff in Europe. But right now the focus is here and I am enjoying it.”
