Harris English Two Off the Lead After 2nd Round of the U.S. Open


MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) – Now this is the U.S. Open at Winged Foot everyone expected. Patrick Reed made enough birdies to account for the inevitable bogeys He was particularly strong making pars. He shot an even-par 70 for a one-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau. Former Baylor school golfer Harris English is tied for third at 2-under-par. Justin Thomas and Rafa Cabrera-Bello are also at minus two. English is one of only six players who remain under par in the U.S Open. That’s after an opening round that yielded 21 scores under par. The wind was out of the north and enough to cause problems. The greens were quick. The rough was deep. Tiger Woods won’t be around until the end. He shot 77 and missed the cut.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
