Harris English is in just his second year on the PGA TOUR. After a 64 Friday, he'll enter the weekend at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in position to chase his first win.
"I'm still getting comfortable out here," the 23-year-old University of Georgia alum said. "Just trying to get in the hunt of a golf tournament every time."
So far, so good.
English has three top 10s this season and Friday he had five birdies, an eagle and justone bogey.
The eagle came on the par-4 fifth, where English holed out from 175 yards.
"I was playing a little short of it because that green goes front to back pretty good down grain," he said. "It landed about 10, 12 feet short and kicked right and rolled right in."
At one point, it looked like English might have a big lead, getting to 11 under for the week after two more birdies on the back nine. But he bogeyed the 18th, and it was still early in the second round.
"When I get in that kind of situation, everything is pretty much going my way and I'm very much in control of my ball," English said. "I'm really trying to birdie every hole."
