The old dog for the hard road. Or should that be sandy road after 43 year old Paul Casey dominated the final round to claim the 2021 Dubai Desert Classic in cruise control?
The fourth round in the heat promised a mouth watering England versus Scotland battle with Casey, the experienced Tour stalwart head to head with Robert MacIntyre, the exciting young pretender.
Unfortunately for the left handed Scot his game didn't stand up alongside the intensity and focus of Casey, who even through his own troubles of a clutch bogey putt on 15 seemed to be clearly on a mission. In the end Casey stretched away to a four shot win and the troubles continued for MacIntyre as he got pipped for second by Brandon Stone of South Africa.
