BIO

Harry played on the PGA Tour for the first time in 2019/2020 and enjoyed a relatively successful season, largely due to his 2nd place finish at the Bermuda Championship. He recorded another 2nd place finish towards the end of 2020 at the Safeway Open and is very much knocking on the door for his breakthrough PGA Tour win.

Harry secured his 2019/2020 PGA Tour card after finishing 5th on the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour season standings. He had one win that season at the Price Cutter Charity Championship which he won by 2 strokes on 22 under par. The season beforehand he won the Diners Club Peru Open on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica on the way to winning the Order of Merit to get his Korn Ferry Tour card.

Significant info

A larger than life character, Harry turns 30 in December 2021, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him win as he approaches this significant birthday.

Significant Quotes

The Northern Trust, 2020
Q. As you move on to Chicago, just your thoughts on where your game is at right now?
HARRY HIGGS: It's good, yeah. I mean, I finished darned near probably close to the Top-10 this week. When you do that, things are good. Just keep holing a few more putts. I hit a lot of good putts on the back nine, and maybe was just off on reads and they didn't fall and that's the way it is, but I gave myself plenty of chances throughout the week.
