Harris English made his way up the leaderboard of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational following a 1-under-par 36-33=69 during the opening round.
The Georgia Bulldog finished the round with a positive number in every strokes gained sub-category today, so this was really a balanced effort. He striped seven (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, both numbers easily eclipsing the field average today at Firestone Country Club. From there, he drained three putts from outside eight feet. English has now posted sub-70 rounds in 6-of-9 career rounds at Firestone CC. Jun 30 - 6:23 PM

Past champ Harris English rallied for a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a 54-hole total of 5-under 205, up 17 on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 2013 champion (on debut) arrived at TPC Southwind off a season-best solo second at the DDI and began the third frame on 2-under (T24), opening his fourth straight appearance with a pair of 69s. For a second straight lap, he striped nine (of 14) fairways and improved to 14 greens in regulation from eight in R1 and 10 in R2. The 26-year-old went out in birdie-less 1-over, squaring a lone bogey at the par-4 fifth (failed scramble). He came to the house in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 11, 12, 16 and 18, three from inside of nine feet with a long of 45'6" dropping at the par-4 12th.

Harris English hung up a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a 72-hole tally of 14-under 266, up two spots to solo second, three shy of champion and 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 26-year-old began the finale on 10-under (T4) after opening his fourth DDI in 67-69-64, two back of Spieth. He raced out with a hole-out eagle at the par-5 first from 83 yards away and added back-to-back birdies on holes 7 and 8. The Georgian "saved" bogey-5 on the ninth from 8'4" after putting his second into the water to turn 2-under. He reached 14-under total after birdie at the 10th and at that point, led by one over two players and by two over Spieth. English birdied the 11th before squaring the 12th (failed sand save) and then mustered six straight pars to close while Spieth raced by with an inward 30. It's still a season best in his 18th event and second career runner-up in his 128th start.

Harris English fashioned a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 10-under 200, up 12 places to T3 and a season best in his 60th round.

Play is still in progress but the 26-year-old is the clubhouse leader in birdies thru 54 holes with 18. He circled six and five, respectively, in his first two laps en route to 67-69, but removed some of the luster with five bogeys and a double bogey-5. The Georgian limited the damage in the third frame to a lone bogey at the par-3 fourth, three-putting from 53'4", and more than erased it with seven birdies on 17 greens in regulation. His split featured three from between 13 and 17 feet with a long of 42'2" on the par-4 12th. English had a chance for one better but missed from 5'2" at the 18th.
May 28 - 5:51 PM

Harris English styled a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The Georgia Bulldog opened on the back nine and caught fire quickly with the flat stick. He splashed home a 9'1" par-saver at the par-4 10th and proceeded to roll in four putts from outside 10 feet before making the turn. Two of those came from outside 17 feet, the longest being a 29'3" par-saving bomb at the par-4 15th hole. English has a pair of top 30s in three starts at Colonial Country Club, and it's easy to see why after looking at the way he rolled his rock today.
May 26 - 2:57 PM

Harris English withdrew from the RBC Heritage prior to his second round tee time, citing a right wrist injury. UPDATE: English returned to action on May 5th at the Wells Fargo Championship and posted T17 on rounds of 71-71-74-70, his fifth top 25 of the season on 15 starts.

The Georgia Bulldog opened with a 6-over-par 38-39=77 with just six greens hit and four (of 14) fairways. That certainly fits the bill of an injured golfer, but it could also have been a combination of the tough conditions at Harbour Town Golf Links and not having his best stuff. With even tougher conditions forecasted today, it would have been difficult for English to make a comeback and play the weekend.
Apr 15 - 8:51 AM

Harris English tacked on a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach the midpoint on 6-under 138, up 13 spots on the leaderboard when play was suspended due to darkness.

The Georgia Bulldog alum is already in the Masters via qualifying for last year's TOUR Championship, but is looking for his first win since the 2014 OHL Classic and third overall. He's currently T8 after rounds of 68-70 and four adrift of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman, while 27 didn't finish due to a 90-minute lightning delay in the morning. The 26-year-old, making his first SHO appearance since T50 in 2013, began off No. 10 tee and split nine (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation. He ripped off four straight circles on 12-15, including a 61'4" prayer on the par-3 14th, before bogeys on 16 (failed scramble) and 18 (three-putt from 72'9") cooled him off. English added a chip-in birdie-3 on the first and a five-footer on the par-5 eighth, but erased them with bogeys on 2 (another three-putt) and 6 after hitting his second to the par 4 into the water. He gained 2.222 strokes tee-to-green and 0.744 in strokes gained: putting.
Apr 1 - 11:00 PM

With a second-round 3-over-par 37-37=74 and a 36-hole aggregate of 5-over 147, Harris English missed the cut at the Valspar Championship by two strokes.

A total of 70 pros and one amateur made the cut of 3-over 145. English entered his fourth visit to the Copperhead Course off a solo 10th at Trump National Doral and was T10 here last year and T7 in 2013. None of that translated as he bowed-out after a one-birdie four-bogey 74 in R2. The 26-year-old eagled his first hole of the tournament but mustered just two birdies over his next 35 holes -- both on par 5s -- and squared seven bogeys and a double. Other notable early exits include: 146- Martin Kaymer; 2014 champ John Senden; Keegan Bradley; Graeme McDowell ... 147- Jason Kokrak; Webb Simpson ... 151- Freddie Jacobson ... 152- Ernie Els; 2005 champ Carl Pettersson ... 153- Cameron Tringale and 2013 champ Kevin Streelman.
Mar 11 - 6:56 PM

Harris English patched together an even-par 38-34=72 on day four of the WGC-Cadillac Championship to post 4-under 284.

Making his second visit to Trump National Doral (T16/2014), English opened in 70-70-71 to begin eight adrift of 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy. Eighteen holes later, he ended eight adrift, but to champion Adam Scott. Although he remained in 10th place after a four-birdie four-bogey final frame, it was a solo 10th, versus the five-way T10 he began the day in. The 26-year-old finished the week T28 in birdies (14), but was T7 in bogeys with 'just' eight, although the four in R4 was his worst showing of the week. He leaves with his second top 10 of the season in nine starts (solo third, WM Phoenix Open).
Mar 6 - 8:20 PM

Harris English settled for a 2-under-par 33-37=70 during the second round of this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship to reach the halfway mark at 3-under 141.

The Georgia Bulldog was cruising today as he reached the 18th tee box with a bogey-free scorecard. He could have posted a real low one today, but his putter fell flat. His longest putt of the round was a 5'10" par-saver on the par-4 fifth hole. He walked off the course having lost 1.750 strokes over the field with the flat stick. Through 36 holes, English has landed 25 greens in regulation and should remain in contention over the weekend if he can hole a few putts.
Mar 4 - 4:02 PM

Harris English authored a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a 72-hole tally of 12-under 272, good for solo third and two shots out of a two-man playoff involving Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler.

English has a history of less-than-stellar third- and fourth-round scoring on TOUR, and he followed suit with even-par 71 in R3, but broke the spell with a six-birdie against one-bogey 66 in the finale. He began his final frame six adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee on 7-under (68-67-71). The 26-year-old raced out with four birdies in his first six holes and tied for the lead on 11-under with four others (Bryce Molder, Lee, Matsuyama, Fowler). He added a seven-footer at the par-5 13th and got a great break at the par-5 15th when his second ricocheted off a hazard stick and into the greenside bunker when he was surely heading for the water. He was unable to take advantage, missing birdie from 8'11", and then exchanged bogey-4 at 16 with a five-footer on 17 for his final total. This is English's best at the WMPO in five tries and his first top 10 of the season in his seventh event.
Feb 7 - 6:13 PM

Harris English smoothed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a two-day tally of 7-under 135, up eight spots on the yet-to-be-completed leaderboard and into a three-way T4.

Darkness stranded four in the second round, but it's not going to affect English's position at three adrift of 36-hole leader James Hahn. He opened his fifth WMPO appearance with 3-under 68 and followed it with today's six-birdie against two-bogey showing. The 26-year-old is no stranger to being near the top of the pack after 36 holes at TPC Scottsdale as he was T3 here thru each of the first three rounds in 2014. He closed in even-par 71 however, and dipped to solo ninth, his tournament best. English ranks 146th on TOUR in R3 scoring average in 2015-16 (six events) so there's a cautionary tale awaiting him on Moving Day in Scottsdale.
Feb 5 - 9:32 PM

Harris English hung up a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 7-under 133, five adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

English opened in an up-and-down 2-under 68 in yesterday's first round, but did flash his horse-for-the-course form with five straight birdies on Nos. 9-13. Today's loop opened with the same flare, with an eagle-2 at the par-4 10th after nearly driving the green. He added two the conventional way from inside of four feet at the 12th and 18th to turn 4-under. The 26-year-old gave one back with a failed up-and-down at the par-4 third, but added back-to-back birdies on seven and eight, from 27'3" and 18'5", respectively. At last check, he ranked a lofty fifth in strokes gained: tee-to-green thru 36 holes, but an uninspiring 101st in strokes gained: putting. Nonetheless, he's up 44 spots on the live leaderboard to T8.
Jan 15 - 7:28 PM

Harris English is on Oahu for his fifth consecutive appearance at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

English returns to action following an eight-week layoff. In his last start, he posted a T25 on his home course at The RSM Classic in Sea Island, Georgia. That chased a disappointing missed cut by three at the OHL Classic, site of the last of his two victories on TOUR in the 2013-14 edition. Thru four starts in 2015-16, the 26-year-old ranks No. 1 on TOUR in strokes gained: putting (1.968), but 187th in strokes gained: tee-to-green (-1.070). He's 4-for-4 at the Sony with three straight top 10s, the last two going for top fives, and shot a career-tying-low 62 in R3 in 2012.

Harris English has 40 top-25 finishes in 114 career PGA TOUR starts, but only four podiums.

The Georgia Bulldog made 29 starts last season but was in contention only once, a playoff loss at the Farmers the second week of February, where he lead outright after 36 holes on 10-under and co-lead thru 54 holes, but played the weekend in 1-over-par (73-72). His weekend scoring average continues to be a drag on his fantasy value, particularly in round three. In each of his previous four seasons on TOUR, English's cumulative scoring average (rankings by round) look like this: Round 1: 13th-ranked; Round 2: 26th; Round 3: 127th; Round 4: 75th. This is a glaring weakness in the 26-year-old's game and helps to explain why it's been 57 starts since English won the last of his two titles (2013-14 OHL Classic at Mayakoba).
