English wins wet OHL Classic
Harris English carded a six-under-par 65 on Sunday to pull away for a four-shot victory in the US PGA Tour’s $6-million OHL Classic.
The American completed 72 holes on El Camaleon Golf Course at 21-under-par 263 for his second PGA Tour victory.
“It was an awesome win,” English said. “I was a lot more comfortable out there than I was in Memphis. I hit the ball really well all week,” he added.
“It got a little windy the first couple of days and I struggled a little bit with my driver, but I found it coming down the stretch and hit some good shots.”
Brian Stuard returned a final-round 67 to take second place at 17-under-par.
He was followed by South African Rory Sabbatini who posted a 70 to head a group on 268 that also included Jason Bohn and Chris Stroud who finished the tournament off with solid scores of 58.
The lead belonged to Swede Robert Karlsson at the start of the final round, but he closed with one-ver 72 had to finish sixth alongside Charles Howell, Justin Hicks and Justin Leonard.
On Thursday only 15 players complete the first round because of heavy rainfall and course conditions meant players could lift, clean and place their balls in the fairway in the final round.
Karlsson, who eagled the par-five fifth, and added a birdie at eight, was gutted after two bogeys and a double-bogey at the 12th, 13th and 14th ended his hopes of winning the title.
“I’ve been struggling a bit with the long driver and over the long shots in general and usually you get found out sooner or later,” Karlsson said.
“But I’m happy to have a great taste of being in the last group for 36 holes. I was in it even though I wasn’t playing fantastic the last two days.”
