Harris English tees off on hole No. 1 as former President Bill Clinton observes at the far right.

Thomasville’s Harris English is enjoying life as a rookie on the PGA Tour.

English, one of nine University of Georgia Bulldogs on Tour, is coming off a tie for 19th at last weekend’s Humana Challenge presented by the Clinton Foundation. It was his second and best finish of the year.

But English was very candid about what his performance.

“I’ve still got a lot to learn,” said English after his final round. “I had a good week this week but I still had some big numbers.

“It was good to get in contention. Get the feel of it and get some heat. Have these learning experiences, learning the golf courses, and finding my game.”

It was a golf game that produced a 10-under-par 62 on Friday during his second round.

Impressive numbers from a new rookie on the PGA Tour.

“I learned from a young age growing up that when you’re going low, just keep going low. I did that (during the 62). I never wanted the number to get in my head. I just wanted to keep making birdies and keep hitting good shots.

“I started getting comfortable with my putter and they started going in.”

English now heads to Torrey Pines in San Diego for the Farmers Insurance Open this week.
