English birdies No. 9 in Round 2 of OHL Classic
A wet course and an early tee time was no match for Harris English on Satruday at Mayakoba.
The big Georgian birdied the last two holes as he finished his second round. He putted out for a 62, which got him to 9 under on the day and 12 under for the week.
That tied him with Kevin Stadler and Robert Karlsson, both of whom finished Friday.
It was a big turnaround for English, endured a sloppy 68 in the first round. He's looking for his second PGA TOUR win after taking the FedEx St. Jude Classic last June.
"Finally this tournament my putting has come around," English said. "I changed putters and went back to my old PING putter that I played with in college. Just brought back some good memories and been putting really well this week."
Lefthander Tim Wilkinson nearly matched English's 62, but he bogeyed the par-4 ninth to finish with a 63.
The cut finished at 1 under. The third round will begin at 2:15 p.m. ET off split tees.
