English attended The Baylor School (2003-2007) in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he led the golf team to four state titles. Also won one individual state title in high school. He was a four-time All-American at the University of Georgia, winning four collegiate events. Earned All-SEC honors all four years at the school. In 2007, he was the third-youngest winner, at age 18, of the Georgia State Amateur (Bobby Jones in 1916 and Charles Yates in 1931). He was named SEC Freshman of the Year in 2008. Won the 2011 Southern Amateur and was a 2011 U.S. Walker Cup Team member. He uses a 1989 quarter, representing his birth year, to mark his ball.
In December 2011, he finished T-13th at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament at PGA West, where he earned his rookie tour card. Before 2012, he had never played in a PGA Tour event. Prior to that, made just seven starts on the Korn Ferry Tour, where he claimed 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-place results. As an amateur, he finished T-18 at the Stadion Classic on his home course in Georgia in May of 2011. Georgia teammate Russell Henley won the tournament. Two months later, he won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational at Ohio State University's Scarlet Course by a shot over fellow amateur/collegian John Peterson of LSU and Kyle Reifers. In doing so, English became only the third amateur to win a Korn Ferry Tour event. He turned pro in September, immediately after the Walker Cup, taking advantage of the membership opportunity with his win in Ohio. He finished T-49th in his first pro start at the Soboba Golf Classic. One week later, he made a spirited bid for a second title at the WNB Golf Classic in Midland, Texas, but lost in a one-hole playoff to Danny Lee. He helped his cause with a tournament record-tying, 10-under-par third round.
2012 Notes: In his rookie season, he recorded the first top-10 finish of his career after 10 starts, with a T-8th at the RBC Heritage. He earned his second top-10 with a T-5th at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing seven strokes behind winner Zach Johnson. He reached the British Open via International Finals qualifying by shooting a record 60 (followed by a 63 in the afternoon). He finished T-54th in his first major championship appearance at the British Open. He finished T-10th at the Wyndham Championship after entering the final round two shots off the lead. A final-round 70 left him six shots behind winner Sergio Garcia. He entered the FedExCup Playoffs 87th in the standings. Following a T-24th at The Barclays and T-69th at the Deutsche Bank Championship ended the season 79th in the FedExCup race and 79th on the money list.
2013 Notes: Fired four rounds in the 60s at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in early June to hold off a hard-charging Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings to claim his first PGA Tour title by two shots. The win came in his 44th career PGA Tour start and in Tennessee, where he attended high school. He began the final round a stroke off the lead en route to the win, becoming the seventh come-from-behind FedEx St. Jude Classic winner in the last eight years. It was one of his four top-10 finishes of the year. He was 31st in the FedExCup race and 27th on the money list.
2014 Notes: He continued his good play, winning the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. In his first ten starts of the year had six top-10s, the last at the WGC-Accenture, where he won $148,000 for a T-9th finish. Up to that point, he had won $2,318,397 for the year, surpassing his career earnings through 2013. English's best finish the rest of the year was a T-7th at the Travelers Championship. He ended the year 32nd in the FedExCup rankings and 23rd on the money list. Along with teammate Matt Kuchar, finished second in defense of their Franklin Templeton Shootout title, losing to the team of Jason Day and Cameron Tringale by one shot in Naples, Fla.
2015 Notes: In his fifth season start, he had his first top-10 with a T-3rd at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Despite four rounds in the 60s, he still finished ten shots behind runaway winner Jimmy Walker. It marked his third consecutive top-10 finish at the Sony Open (4th in 2014 and T-9th in 2013). He lost in a playoff to Jason Day at the Farmers Insurance Open after holding the second-round lead and a share of the third-round lead. He finished runner-up for the first time in his career. It marked his first playoff on the Tour, and it was also his first 54-hole Tour lead. Following a 1-over-par 72 and a 3-over 74 in the Valspar Championship's second and third rounds, English tied the week's low score with a 6-under 65 Sunday to claim a T-10th. He made the cut in 16 of his next 18 events. Advanced to the Tour Championship after finishing 31st in 2013 and 32nd in 2014. Ended the year ranked 28th in the FedEx Cup race and 46th on the money list. Finished second for the second consecutive year with partner Matt Kuchar at the Franklin Templeton Shootout in December.
2016 Notes: He began the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open six shots back but shot a 5-under 66 at TPC Scottsdale to finish 3rd. He finished 10th at the WGC-Cadillac. He recorded his best finish with a 2nd at the Dean & Deluca, three shots back of winner Jordan Spieth. He had three top-tens in 27 starts, making 22 cuts. He finished the year 47th on the FedExCup standings and 46th on the money list. In five seasons in the FedExCup, has not finished worse than 79th (2012). Ended the year winning the Franklin Templeton Shootout with Matt Kuchar.
2017 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events making 15 cuts with two top-ten finishes. Was T-4th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Had his second top-ten with a T-10th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. But the season was lost. He was 118 in the FedExCup rankings, his highest in six PGA Tour seasons. Problems were with the putter, which normally carried him through the season. In 2016 he was 6th in Strokes Gained Putting, but in 2017 he finished T-33rd. English wasn't consistent from tee to green, in 2014, he was 31st in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green, but in 2017 he was 147th.
2018 Notes: Played in 31 PGA Tour events making 11 cuts with two top-tens. Was T-5th at the Corales Puntacana and T-8th at the Farmers Insurance Open. He finished 125th in the FedExCup standings, his worst finish ever. Again core stats went down. He was 57th in Strokes Gained Putting and 162nd in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green.
2019 Notes: Played in 28 PGA Tour events making 21 cuts with four top-25 finishes. His best finish was T-12th at the Honda Classic. He was 149th in the FedExCup standings, the first time he was out of the top-125. Went to the Korn Ferry Finals and was T-14th at the Nationwide Children's, missed the cut at the Albertsons Boise Open, and T-26th at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. He was 54th on the priority rank, which didn't get him onto the PGA Tour, so he played in 2020 off the 126 to 150 category. English realized his problems, made a change in April 2019, and started working with a new swing coach, Justin Parsons. The changes they made took a few months before he regained his confidence. The importance of things showed in the cuts made. In 2018 he made just 11 cuts, but in 2019 he made 21.
2020 Notes: Played in 20 PGA Tour events making 18 cuts with six top-ten finishes. He was 12th in the FedExCup standings. He got his season off to a great start with a T-3rd finish at the Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Next week was T-6th at the Sanderson Farms Championship, three shots back of the Munoz/Im playoff. Was T-4th at the Houston Open, three shots back of winner Lanto Griffin and 5th at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, three shots back of Brendon Todd. He was T-9th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and things looked good with a first-round 65 at the Players Championship. But unfortunately, things were put on hold as the Players was canceled due to COVID-19. He worked hard during his time off with swing coach Justin Parsons, who moved from Dubai to Sea Island, Ga. The work paid off, for the year, English went from 147th in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green to 18th. In Greens in Regulation, he went from T-91st at the end of 2019 to 9th at the end of 2020. After the break, his best finish was T-13th at the Memorial until he finished 2nd at the Northern Trust, 11 shots back of winner Dustin Johnson. Was T-40th at the BMW Championship and T-12th at the Tour Championship.
2021 Notes: Played in 26 PGA Tour events making 22 cuts with eight top-ten finishes. He was 18th in the FedExCup standings. He started the season by finishing 4th at the September U.S. Open, nine shots back of winner Bryson DeChambeau. He was 10th at the CJ Cup @ Shadow Creek, T-6th at the RSM Classic, and T-5th at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Because of the rules change for the Sentry Tournament of Champions, in which they allowed those in the top 30 of the FedExCup rankings, English got into the event in Maui. He made a birdie at the 72nd hole to get into a playoff, then beat Joaquin Niemann with a birdie on the first playoff hole to pick up his third PGA Tour victory, his first in 193 starts after winning the 2014 Mayakoba Classic. After that struggled with his game, and before the first round of the Players he withdrew, citing a back injury. He did play in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play but didn't make it out of group play with a 1-2-0 record. His back problem seemed OK, and his game heated up at the Palmetto Championship. After rounds of 67-69-67, he went into the final round just two off the lead. After playing the first ten holes in 2 under, he was tied for the lead with Chesson Hadley. But bogies at 11, 13, and 14 dropped him out of contention, and with a bogey at 17 and a double-bogey at 18, his 74 dropped him into a T-14th. The next week at the U.S. Open, English shot 68 in the final round with birdies at 17 and 18 to finish 3rd. He carried over the good play to the Travelers Championship, and with rounds of 67-68-67-65, he finished at 13 under and tied with Kramer Hickok. The two went mano-a-mano for seven holes before English made a ten-foot birdie putt to win the Travelers on the eighth sudden-death hole. English was very comfortable at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational through 64 holes. He was on the same course he won for the first time in 2013. After rounds of 62-65-65, he went into the final round two shots up, and things looked promising. After a front nine 33, he went into the final nine three up. But then disaster struck. It started at the par-3 11th hole, English hit his tee shot in the water and went on to make a double-bogey. At the next par 3, the 14th, English again hit his tee shot into the water and again made a double bogey. He was still in the running, but he ran into problems on the easy, par-5 16th hole, making a bogey, and with pars at 17 and 18, found himself a shot out of the Ancer/Burns/Matsuyama playoff. His 4th-place finish changed the characteristics of his season. Instead of taking the FedExCup standings lead, he was 4th. He never gained any momentum in the playoffs and finished T-31st at the Northern Trust, T-26th at the BMW Championship, and T-18th at the Tour Championship. He played in his first Ryder Cup and finished with a 1-2-0 record to help Team USA win at Whistling Straits. English lost his singles match to Lee Westwood, 1 up.
2022 Notes: Played in 12 PGA Tour events, making six cuts with one top-ten finish. He was 198th in the FedExCup standings. His best finish in his first five starts of the season was a T-30th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. With an injury nagging for the last ten years, English withdrew from the Phoenix Open in February, electing to have the surgery on February 14th to repair a torn labrum in his hip. English made every effort to return to Augusta but had to withdraw from the year's first major. He also withdrew from the PGA Championship. He returned to play at The Memorial, missing the cut. At the Travelers Championship, he shot 66-65 and was T-2nd but shot 69-71 to finish T-19th.
2023 Notes: Played in 30 PGA Tour events, making 23 cuts with five top-ten finish. He was 38th in the FedExCup standings. His first start of the season was T-9th at the Fortinet Championship. He finished T-2nd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his fourth career runner-up on the PGA Tour and best result since winning the 2021 Travelers Championship. He was a shot back of winner Kurt Kitayama. After the WGC-Dell Match Play, English ranked 44th in the Official World Golf Rankings and got invited to play in the Masters. English sat out last year's Masters after opting for surgery on a torn labrum in his right hip in February 2022. At the Masters, he finished T-43rd. After a slow start with a first-round 71 at the Wells Fargo Championship, English shot 68-66-69 to finish T-3rd, seven shots back of winner Wyndham Clark. Shot opening rounds of 67-68 to be into contention at the U.S. Open, but with rounds of 71-71 over the weekend, finished T-8th, six shots back of the winner Wyndham Clark.
