Thomasville's English earns Open Championship berth

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomasville native Harris English has earned his second straight berth into The Open Championship.

English was one of 18 players added to the field Monday.

The former Georgia Bulldog earned his berth through the FedEx Cup standings.

It will be the second Open Championship appearance for English, who finished 54th in 2012.

The Open Championship will be played July 18-21 at Muirfield in Scotland.

English won his first PGA Tour event in June, winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis.

That win earned English an invite to the 2014 Masters Tournament.
