FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – If PGA TOUR rookie Harris English advances to the BMW Championship in two weeks, he might very well look back on his eagle on the 15th hole in Sunday’s final round of The Barclays as the decisive shot.
English was 2 under for the tournament going into the 15th hole. But with the eagle, he’s now at 4 under and inside the top 10 on the bunched-up Barclays leaderboard.
English entered the week ranked 87th in FedExCup points but is now projected to 52nd after the eagle. He’s safely in next week’s 100-man Deutsche Bank Championship and now projects to be inside the top 70 for the BMW Championship.
