Travelers further proof Baylor alum Harris English returning to form

The 2021 Travelers Championship will be forever memorable for Harris English on multiple fronts.

There was the marathon drama of an eight-hole playoff victory over Kramer Hickok, and the second triumph of last season all but punched English's ticket to a coveted spot on what became a historically dominant United States Ryder Cup Team.

This past weekend's Travelers was also a success for the former Baylor School and University of Georgia standout, albeit on a more modest and realistic scale.

English is on the road to recovery following hip labrum surgery that sidelined him from mid January until earlier this month, and his tying for 19th at the Travelers marked the first top-20 result of his shortened season. The 32-year-old opened with a 66 and a 65 to get to 9-under through two rounds, which had him in a tie for second, before he finished with a 69 and a 71.
