Soon after the 2020 Olympics’ men’s golf event wrapped up, most golfers made their way to Memphis for the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. While it might have been a change from Tokyo’s course, TPC Southwind seems to be favoring those currently leading the scoreboard. Harris English is currently maintaining his two-stroke lead, while the others follow him closely.

Till now, English has surpassed Cameron Smith and Abraham Ancer to secure the first position on the leaderboard, scoring 13-under through two rounds. On the other hand, Smith was 11-under after 36-holes. He shot a 62 in Round 2 with 18 putts – tying the PGA Tour record for the least number of putts in one round. Ancer went without a bogey in a 62-stroke Round 2. Ian Poulter, Scottie Scheffler, and Sam Burns stand T4, while Louis Oosthuizen and Bryson DeChambeau finished behind them at nine-under.

This could very well be English’s first WGC win, maybe even bringing him a PGA Tour Player of the Year award.
