English fails to make weekend cut; done at Masters

AUGUSTA —

Harris English shot a 5-over par 77 on Friday at Augusta National and missed the weekend cut in his first Masters.

Although English struggled at times on Friday he still took plenty of positives from the week’s priceless experience.

“It was unbelievable, such a cool experience out here,” English said. “Everybody can tell you that this is how the Masters is going to be, this is what you’re going to get but until you go through it that’s how you learn.” 

The feeling inside Augusta’s ropes and on the fairways was one that English enjoyed during this tournament.

“It’s actually a lot different, a lot more relaxed out there which is good,” English said of the course. “You get some really loud areas with the crowd and you get some really quite areas like the back of thirteen tee box.”

Although English feels like he hit the ball much better from tee to green on Friday versus his opening round on Thursday, he points to his inconsistent putting as a major issue in why he did not make the cut to play the weekend.

“It’s probably putting, out here you’re not going to get a whole lot of good looks at birdies,” English said. “You don’t see a whole lot of guys with short puts for birdie.”

English could not seem to get his second round in the right gear on Friday.

“It’s all about momentum and I just never got it today, but that’s golf,” English said.

The twenty-four-year-old hit the par-5 green in two and gave himself a realistic putt of 18 feet. His putt, however, burned the edge, and English could not take full opportunity. He settled for his only birdie on the day to go with five bogeys.
