Harris English has won the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic with a score of 12-under par.
In one of the most exhilarating finishes of the season, English edged out Scott Stallings and Phil Mickelson, who both finished at 10-under par. Stallings had been tied with English entering the 18th hole, but he bogeyed and thus fell to 10-under.
English proceeded to birdie two of the final three holes and take home the win in exciting fashion, thus earning his first career PGA Tour title.

One of the stars of the fourth round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic was Mickelson, who finished at three-under par on the day and 10-under overall to finish in a tie for second on the leaderboard. On No. 14, Mickelson had one of his best holes of all, as he continued the success he had on the hole throughout the tournament.
In turn, Mickelson built strong momentum entering the U.S. Open.
Speaking of great shots, Brad Fritsch entered his name in the runnings for SportsCenter's Top 10. With his second shot on No. 18, he found the green and two-hopped it into the hole.
An eagle, ladies and gentlemen.
That's what you call a great shot.
Entering the day, rookie Shawn Stefani held the lead at 12-under par and was one stroke ahead of second-place Harris English. Unfortunately, Stefani fell apart during the final round of play, shooting a six-over par for the day and finishing at six-under for the tournament.
Even still, Stefani kept his head on straight and earned himself an abundance of new fans with his animated performance.
The future is bright.
While Stefani may have crumbled, Gary Woodland bounced back by shooting a final-round 64. He finished at four-under par and thus proved to be the biggest mover of all, working his way up the leaderboard and just outside of the top 10.
After struggling during the first two rounds, he bounced back in a major way to finish strong and create a powerful sense of momentum leading up to the U.S. Open.
That's what you call a strong finish.
The true story of the day, however, wasn't a single player on the course. Instead, it was an animal that took the course by storm.
He moved the ball better than some of the players.
All jokes aside, it was English who finished strong at 12-under par, barely edging out Stallings, for the win. The two were tied for the lead at 11-under entering the final hole of play.
When it was all said and done, however, Stallings bogeyed No. 18 and English found a birdie on No. 17 to win his first career PGA Tour event.
