English has played the eighth hole at Colonial Country Club about as well as anyone could through two rounds.

On Thursday, he knocked his tee shot on the par 3 to inside nine feet and then dropped the putt for birdie.

On Friday, he went one better, bouncing in an ace, en route to a 66. He stands at 9 under, nipping at Hall’s heels.

“I told my caddie I don’t think anyone’s beating us through the first two days on No. 8. Just a really good number today,” English said. “Just one of those shots where I had to hit a 9-iron really full, and it came off just like I wanted to and luckily went in the hole.”

English missed the cut at the PGA Championship but has played well over the last few months, and thinks big things could be in store.

“Glad to be in the clubhouse at 9-under. Still got a lot of golf to play,” he said. “I played good a couple weeks ago at the Wells Fargo in Charlotte, big time event this year on Tour, elevated with a lot of good players there. I can’t remember how many bogey-free rounds I had, but I had a couple out there.

“Yeah, I just feel like my game’s trending in the right direction. I like golf courses like this where par is a good score. With the greens firming up, it’s getting pretty tough to control your ball, and I like it when it gets tough. Excited for the weekend, and we’ll see where it shakes out this afternoon.”
