PGA Tour’s Harry Higgs through the years

PGA Tour’s Harry Higgs through the years

To follow golfer Harry Higgs is to be entertained. The 32-year-old SMU product has bounced up and down between the PGA Tour and the Korn Ferry Tour, but has found his way into 120 tournaments on the former, and he now has accrued more than $5 million in career earnings.

And although he’d gone five years between his first and second win, he only had to wait seven days for his third.

Higgs fired a 5-under 65 on May 26, 2024, to finish at 19 under, edging Frankie Capan III in a playoff at the weather-challenged Visit Knoxville Open. Higgs’ winning putt was from more than 36 feet away.

Just a week before, Higgs chipped in for eagle on the 18th hole to get into a playoff before winning in Kansas City at the AdventHealth Championship.

And he’s been hit-or-miss in his few major tournaments as well, missing the cut in two of the four in which he’s played, but finishing T-4 in the 2021 PGA Championship and T-14 in the 2022 Masters.

Of course, Higgs is as well known for his comedic side as he is for his golf game. In early 2023, Higgs told Golfweek that one issue with the PGA Tour/LIV Golf split was “they took all the assholes. They took all the villains. And that’s a problem.”

And at the 2022 WM Phoenix Open, Higgs went shirtless with playing partner Joel Dahmen in what can only be termed a moment for the ages.

Here’s a look at the always-entertaining Higgs through the years.
