FARMINGDALE, NY – The rise of England’s Paul Casey to No. 3 in the World Rankings hasn’t come without a helping hand or two. During a press conference earlier today, Casey spoke candidly about his special relationship with his longtime instructor, Peter Kostis.

“He’s like my second dad or third dad I guess...And (Kostis) has often said I’m kind of like his third son, sort of the annoying one who doesn’t return phone call.

“I feel very much a part of his family and I’m very lucky for that…Because of that, I think he can often say things to me that I don’t want to hear, you know, that are the truth. Sometimes they’re not nice. But because of that he’s made me into a better player and a better person.”
