Perfect Warm-up for Paul Casey
Top golfers show lots of feel in the Porsche Experience
. The Porsche European Open can begin right now for Paul Casey, the world class golfer from England: Before the start of the European Tour tournament that will be played on Hamburg’s doorstep around the Green Eagle Golf Course’s Porsche North Course from 26 to 29 July 2018, Casey absolved his very own warm-up programme. On the ADAC’s – the main German automobile club – driving safety centre in nearby Lüneburg, the 41-year old was able to put his driving skills to the test and live out his passion for Porsche. “For me, it’s always safety first on the roads. It makes it all the more nicer for me to be able to take out a GT3 RS for instance on closed roads. Simply dreamlike and the perfect warm-up for the tournament week,” said the multiple winner on both the European Tour and the US PGA Tour. Driving a Porsche Cayenne, Casey also explored the off-road terrain. He duly became aware of some parallels to golf: “On-road feels like a fairway, Off-road more like the rough. To be honest, I prefer the fairway – when driving sports cars and playing golf.”
