Harris English withdrew from the RBC Heritage prior to his second round tee time, citing a right wrist injury.
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.

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.

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).

Harris English enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The debutant at Sheshan International converted five birdies, none of which on the quartet of par 5s. He checked up just three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders, so it stands to reason that the 26-year-old left a shot or two out there today. He's cashed in 14 consecutive starts worldwide and will add on at this no-cut affair in Shanghai, but English hasn't reeled in a top 10 since mid-March. This is to say that he won't let you down but treat his consistency as the baseline, not a disappointment.

Harris English returns to Malaysia for his second playing of the CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

English snapped a streak of two straight seasons with a victory but still made it to the TOUR Championship for the first time and finished a career-best 28th in the FedExCup standings. He came close to his third career win a couple of times, losing in a playoff at the Farmers Insurance Open the first week of February, and a T3 at the Sony Open in January. In total he made 29 starts and ended up with three top 10s, the last was a back-door T10 at the Valspar in mid-March. He cashed 24 times with 10 top-25 finishes, but to be honest, he was not in contention the last seven months of the season. The 26-year-old has made one prior CIMB appearance which went for T7 in 2014 at this week's venue.

Georgia native and resident Harris English readies for his TOUR Championship debut at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Interestingly enough, English ended 2014 No. 77 in the Official World Golf Ranking and enters the season finale at No. 77. Although not at issue this week (or last), he ranks fourth on TOUR in consecutive cuts made at 12. What was at issue last week, the 26-year-old took care of, finishing T19 at the BMW to move from 32nd in the FedExCup standings to 30th. Granted, he needed a little help, but did his part with an 18'7" walk-off birdie-4 on the 72nd hole. English came painfully close to making the field at East Lake in each of the two prior seasons, finishing 32nd in FEC points in 2014 and 31st in 2013. The Georgia Bulldog opened the postseason with T30 (Barclays) and T12 at the Deutsche Bank.

Harris English back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the BMW Championship to conclude at 10-under 274, good for four-way tie for 19th place and moving him from 32nd in the FedExCup standings to 30th.

English canned an 18'7" birdie at the par-5 finisher to post his number, and then had to sweat it out. In the end, Kevin Na's par putt at the last bumped PGA TOUR rookie Justin Thomas from a projected 30th in the FEC to 32nd and English moved into the final spot heading to East Lake. The Georgia Bulldog is joined in the FEC finale by rookie Daniel Berger (No. 46 to No. 9), Scott Piercy (No. 44 to No. 20) and Na (No. 34 to No. 27) as the only four players who entered the week on the outside looking in to crack the top 30. The four that were ousted as a result were Daniel Summerhays, Russell Knox, Jason Bohn and Ben Martin.

Harris English finds himself inside the top 10 thanks to a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the BMW Championship.

The Georgia Bulldog came out punching with birdies in two of the first three holes. He put things on cruise control after that, settling for nine consecutive pars. Bogey prevention has been the name of the game for English as he currently sports just four bogeys through 54 holes. Although victory is likely out of reach, he can't afford to get complacent during the finale as he entered the week 32nd in the FedExCup standings and projects out at 26th in his current T8 slot.
