Harris English wins OHL Classic at Mayakoba
Harris English is a winner on the PGA TOUR for the second time in five months, winning the OHL Classic at Mayakoba by four shots over Brian Stuard after a final-round 65.
English, 24, racked up seven birdies in the first 13 holes with one bogey to build an insurmountable lead at 21 under. Robert Karlsson, who owned the third-round lead after it was completed Sunday morning, went bogey-bogey-double bogey from the 12th through 14th holes to fall from contention. He finished in a tie for sixth, six shots back.
With the win, English picks up 500 FedExCup points and moves to second in the season-long points race. Jimmy Walker leads.
English, who won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June, now can claim wins in two consecutive seasons as the OHL Classic was the sixth official event of the 2013-14 season. The next official event will be the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Maui, Hawaii, Jan. 3-6.
