As a shining sophomore on the PGA Tour, many peers and fans felt it only a matter of time before 23-year-old Harris English won on the PGA Tour. English met their expectations on Sunday by winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee.
Beginning the final day one stroke behind the leader, Harris struggled through the front nine, posting a 2 over par total. The former University of Georgia standout fought back with two early back nine birdies to reach level par for the day. Harris, then, added birdies at 16 and 17 to close out his back nine 32 and win by two strokes over fellow FJ staffer Scott Stallings (FJ ICON and Pure Touch Limited).
English relied on DryJoys Tour and Pure Touch Limited during his championship winning round.
This is Harris English's first PGA Tour win, which also earned the Georgia native an invitation to next year's Masters® Tournament.
