This week was anything but ordinary at the OHL Classic. From heavy rain storms and lighting to the delay in rounds causing players to play as many as 34 holes in 1 day, it was all one true test to the mind as players battled through some powerful conditions.
For Harris English, the conditions on the course were just right as he carded a 62 to go 12-under overall in his 2nd round. While English carded a 62, it was good enough to put him into a tie for the lead with Kevin Stadler and Robert Karlsson. Tim Wilkinson was a hair off English’s 62, but had a bogey to finish with a 63. For players, the cut finished at just 1-under. Round 3 of the OHL Classic was the first round that was not suspended due to weather conditions. Although play was halted as daylight prevented the round from finishing. Karlsson and English finished tied for 1st place at 15-under after the 3rd round. Other notable players that remained in contention were Rory Sabatini and Stadler who were tied at the top of the leader board at 12-under before play was halted.
As play for Round 4 began, an evident mark of the week’s weather was visible with partly cloudy skies. Karlsson birdied the 8th hole to get 16-under for the first time. It was going to take a lot of birdies to bring home the win and that’s exactly what Harris English did. English went an overall 21-under to finish with a 4 stroke lead over Brian Stuard, his closest competitor. English carded 4 outstanding rounds with a 68-62-68-65. English added his 2nd win to his career in 57 PGA Tour starts.
It was clear English meant business the entire time as he had a total of 27 birdies with only 5 bogeys or worse. Congratulations Harris English on your win at the 2013 OHL Classic. With this win, English takes home $1,080,000 along with 500 FedExCup points. English will also be making an appearance at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and The Masters.
