Englishman Casey, the defending champion, shot 66 and American Cook 67 to hold onto the joint lead on six-under 136 after the second round at Palm Harbor, Florida. There's a premium on ball-striking.
"He (Johnson) is the best player in the world", said Casey, who is seeking to become the first back-to-back victor in the event's 19-year history. It was the first-ever albatross at the Valspar. "Probably Dustin. So I actually feel kind of very little pressure". "Any time I've got a chance to go up against world number one I'm excited about that".
It was the second albatross in a week on the PGA Tour, after American Harris English recorded one at the Players Championship.
"Of the guys on the leaderboard, he's the one I would want to be paired with, so it doesn't bother me", Casey said.
He kept his nose in front, though, with a birdie of his own at the first and recovered from a bogey at the third with another birdie at the fifth. He shot 70 and was one behind, along with Scott Stallings (68) and Sungjae Im (67).
Paul Casey plays his shot from the 16th tee during the second round of the Valspar Championship golf tournament at Innisbrook Resort. He ended on three-over par 145, two shots over the line.
"This was a huge kick start and all of a sudden the smile on my face got a little bigger and I was able to hit some good shots", said the two-times PGA Tour victor.
For the past year, Donald has struggled with a back issue that forced him to miss nearly all of the 2018 season. Donald's most recent victory in the United States was this event, then called the Transitions Championship, in 2012.
But the big shot was on the 18th, and the birdie got him into the final group in his first trip to Innisbrook since 2010. "Today it was a good day - I hit it well, and had a couple of loose shots, but around here you're going to hit a couple". Twenty-two players are within five strokes of Casey and Cook's lead.
Johnson, Watson and Jim Furyk are tied for 11th and still well within striking distance after opening with a two-under 69.
Austria's Sepp Straka took advantage of a depleted field, firing a bogey free five-under 66 to seize a share of the first-round lead with Joel Dahmen.
The list of golfers who will not be around for the weekend includes Americans Ryan Moore, Ollie Schniederjans, Kenny Perry, Gary Woodland, Webb Simpson and Patrick Reed; K.J. Choi of South Korea; Charl Schwartzel of South Africa; Jason Day of Australia; and, 17-year-old American amateur Akshay Bhatia (who finished at 4 over).
Seventy players made the cut at 1-over 143 or better.
The request is just a part of the president's 2020 budget blueprint, which he's expected to present to lawmakers on Monday. The budget plan foresees a 1.1-trillion-dollar deficit in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and a 1-trillion-dollar deficit in 2022.
But Mueller's findings could amplify the liberal voices in the House Democratic caucus already calling for Trump's impeachment. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements in a case brought by Mueller in November.
He was awarded the team's Ed Block Courage Award near the end of a 2017 season in which he played through a painful thumb injury. That's better than the Chargers, Bears and Colts (all at 16-to-1), as well as the Vikings and Eagles (both at 20-to-1).
The spread seems a little too wide and I think the Blue Devils will stay within the number if not win outright. Freshman point guard Tre Jones also limped to the locker room in the second half after bumping his right knee.
Williamson is touted as the best in all of college basketball, with the best skills to translate to a successful NBA career. Northeastern is a really odd team to breakdown because they really struggled in every game against tournament opponents.
Mozambique's President Filipe Nyusi said the death toll could go as high as 1,000 from the cyclone and flooding. Some roads were swallowed up by massive sinkholes, while bridges were ripped to pieces by flash floods.
I had a good week in Mexico and last week at Bay Hill [Arnold Palmer Invitational] was also a good week [he finished tied 23rd]. Coming off his strong showing last weekend, I think Fleetwood does more of the same at a course he knows he can play well at.

Milos Raonic ousted in Indian Wells tennis semi-final
Federer raced to an early lead, winning the first three games before wrapping up the first set in the Southern California desert. Thiem will also play in Miami, hoping to complete the "Sunshine Double" with a victory there after his Indian Wells win.
Avengers Endgame trailer: Tony Stark is back on Earth
Probably unsurprisingly, the character is Goose, the feline friend who became a scene-stealer in Captain Marvel . Melancholy seems like an odd tone for a superhero epic that's assembling the who's who of Marvel comics.

A Boeing 737 Max takes part in flying display at the 52nd Paris Air Show at Le Bourget Airport near Paris, France, June 20, 2017. Foreign investigators examine wreckage at the scene where the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed shortly after takeoff.
Democrats Keep Trying to Cover Up Their Anti-Semitism
It should have been a no-brainer for the Democrat-led House to promptly issue a resolution condemning Omar's repeated hate speech. As I have often written before, what you say in such sensitive matters can matter less than what people hear.
