Many experts have tipped the in-form Harris English to be in contention at The Open Championship this week. Golf fans are interested to know more about Harris, his wife and family life.
Harris English’s career and Open Championship prospects
The Open Championship 2021 starts this week at the Royal St George’s course in Sandwich in Kent, England. It will be the 149th Open.
While Spaniard and recent US Open winner Jon Rahm is the bookies’ favourite, golf is anyone’s game on any given day.
Many experts have also put forward the in-form Harris English to have a solid performance at the last major of the year.
US-born English has had some great performances already in 2021. He finished third in this year’s US Open, one place better than he did the year before.
English then went on to win this year’s Travelers Championship. After the victory, Harris is now ranked 12th in the world by the PGA Tour.
The wife and family life of Harris English
Harris English is married to Helen Marie Bowers. Helen, like Harris, attended the University of Georgia, where they met.
The couple were married in 2017 on a golf course, naturally, not far from their home.
The couple currently live in Sea Island, Georgia. Sea Island is home to other professional golfers too, such as JT Poston, Keith Mitchell and Patton Kizzire.
Helen is also American by nationality. It is reported she is an estate agent in Georgia.
Harris keeps a lot of his family life out of the public eye. There’s not much information on their relationship but they appear very happily married from everything he has to say about it.

Harris also comes from a small family. He is the only child of Ben and Martha English.
While he went to South Georgia’s public school, which isn’t renowned for its athletic facilities, Harris’ parents have supported him throughout his career.
