MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Harris English won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, birdieing two of the final three holes to hold off Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings by two strokes.

The 23-year-old former Georgia star in his second year on tour survived a final round where he had six birdies and five bogeys to shoot a 1-under 69. He finished at 12-under 268.

English made a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 16 to tie Stallings for the lead, but Stallings bogeyed No. 18 to give English the lead to himself. English made a 17-foot birdie putt on No. 17, and two-putted No. 18 to pick up the winner's check of $1,026,000.

Mickelson shot a 67, and Stallings had a 68.

Former Augusta State star Patrick Reed was even par Sunday, finishing 5th at 8-under. It's the best finish of his young career.
