MEMPHIS - American Harris English spectacularly holed out with an eight-iron to eagle the par-four fifth on the way to a two-shot lead after Friday's second round of the St Jude Classic. The 23-year-old, seeking his first PGA Tour title after playing his rookie season on the U.S. circuit last year, fired a six-under-par 64 in good scoring conditions at the TPC Southwind to take control of the tournament. One of six players tied for the lead overnight after opening with a 66, English also recorded five birdies and a lone bogey at the par-four 18th, where he missed the fairway off the tee, to post a 10-under total of 130. PGA Tour rookie Shawn Stefani was alone at eight under after carding a 65, with fellow Americans Scott Stallings (68) and Paul Haley II (68) a further three strokes back.–Reuters
