Playing through the ranks from his sophomore to senior seasons, Alex competed in many tournaments. He was the Mustangs’ best finisher in multiple events.

Finally, the Mustang amateur rounded off his career with a tied-for-20th finish at the American Athletic Conference Championship.

Harry admires his younger brother’s abilities on the bag and considers him one of the best caddies in the game. In the same way, he appreciates Alex for tolerating the nuances coming out of the player’s demonstrative personality.

Caddying is a profession that requires sacrifices. Alex made the headlines during the 2021 PGA Championship because of a huge sacrifice he made in fulfilling his duty.

The caddie gave up his chance to play in the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball at Chambers Bay that weekend in order to carry the bag for his big bro. As a result, Alex didn’t make it to Chambers. 

The Higgs brothers have fun beyond the golf course. Alex regularly promises Harry an incentive in the form of cocktails or money based on his play throughout the round.

Harry was born December 4, 1991, to Mike Higgs (father) and Denise Higgs (mother) in Camden, New Jersey. Higgs grew up in Kansas & now resides in Dallas, Texas.

Denise, Harry’s mother, doesn’t work anymore. However, she’s the rock of the family in a house full of boys.

Harry’s parents travel a lot to see him on the road, and his mom brings homemade chocolate chip cookies across the country whenever she visits their son.

Mike and Denise are happy to see their son succeed. Possibly, he couldn’t have reached this point in his career without the support of his family.
