Harris English gets first win on PGA Tour

MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The support of a handful of old high school buddies, the calming influence of a veteran caddie and timely putting were exactly what Harris English needed to pull out his first PGA Tour victory.

English won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday, birdieing two of the final three holes to hold off Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings by two strokes.

“I had probably 10 high school friends out there today,’’ English said. “And I know that if I make a birdie or a bogey, they’re probably going to be the same and they’re rooting me on.”

The 23-year-old former Georgia star in his second year on tour survived a final round where he had six birdies and five bogeys. He finished with a 1-under 69 for a 12-under 268 total to get the victory in the same state where he helped Baylor in Chattanooga win four Tennessee high school golf titles.
