PING staffer Harris English sealed his maiden PGA Tour title with a two-shot victory at the FedEx St Jude Classic.

The 23-year-old American, who closed with two birdies on his final three holes for a 12-under winning total at TPC Southwind, trusted his PING G15 driver, G5 3-wood, S56 irons, Gorge Tour wedges and PING Nome TR putter. 

English averaged 290 yards off the tee, hit 67% of his fairways for the week and ranked 17th in strokes gained putting (0.860).

The Georgia native may have fallen short of a US Open debut this week, but his first PGA Tour victory at least punches his ticket to Augusta National next year. 

After all, playing at Augusta is what every Georgia golfer wants.

"The main thing that I am looking forward to is playing the Masters next year," he said.

"Growing up in Georgia, I mean, that was the main tournament that I always watched and went to when I was a kid. The invitation to the Masters is going to be very special and special for my family because they've put a lot of hard work and a lot of time to get me where I am."

Now English will head home and figure out what this win, along with the $1,026,000 winner's check means for someone who turns 24 in July.

English also trusted Titleist Pro V1x, FJ DryJoys Tour footwear and FJ PureTouch glove.
