Two days, just two bogeys for Thomasville’s Harris English.
Coupled with eight birdies, the former University of Georgia standout is in contention at the RBC Heritage.
Heading into today’s third round at Hilton Head, S.C., English is 6-under for the tournament, following back-to-back rounds of 68. English is tied for third and sits just three strokes off the lead.
“I’ve played really well,” English said. “I’ve kept the ball in front of me and haven’t done anything too crazy, just kind of plotting along. This golf course is really narrow and really tight. I don’t get to hit a lot of drivers off the tee. I’ve stayed patient over the last two days and just played my game.
“I’ve putted really well. When I’ve gotten in trouble, I’ve gotten out of trouble and saved pars pretty well. When I’ve hit some good shots, I’ve gone in there and made some birdies. I’ve had a good gameplan all week and I’ve stuck to it pretty well.”
The last two days English has been grouped with Colt Knost, the second-round leader. After opening with a 67, Knost fired a 66 on Friday. He leads by two strokes over Carl Pettersson.
“There’s a lot of good shots in our group today. He played well,” English said. “We were kind of feeding off each other and making a lot of birdies.”
