English was a decent amateur having won some big events. He played at the University of Georgia. He became only the third ever amateur player to win on the Nationwide Tour when he captured the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational in 2011. The only two other amateurs to win an event were Daniel Summerhays (2007) and Russell Henley (2011 also). English played in the Walker Cup before turning pro shortly after in 2011. After finishing tied 13th at the PGA Tour Q School in 2011, English was awarded with a PGA Tour card for the following season.
In his rookie season, English managed to make 22 cuts out of 27 events. He had three top 10s with his best finish coming at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial where he finished in a tie for 5th. He finished his rookie season at 79th on the money list. It was the 2013 season that brought English his first Tour win. It came at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, where he won by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings. He finished the year with four top 10s and was 27th on the money list.
He won his second Tour title the next season at the OHL Classic, this time winning by four shots. The win included all four rounds in the 60s with a 62 on the Friday. He added seven top 10s and ended the season 23rd on the money list. English nearly won for the third consecutive season in 2015 but was thwarted by Jason Day in a play-off at the Farmers Insurance Open.
