Alex Higgs, brother of the jovial Harry Higgs, serves as a caddie to the PGA Tour player. Alex also played collegiate golf with Harry at SMU.
Reportedly, Alex had a spell as a professional golfer before regaining his amateur status. He began serving as a caddie in February 2020.
Similarly, Alex caddied for Harry when was a senior at SMU. He also competed at the U.S. Amateur Championship in 2013 and was placed second at the Kansas City Amateur in 2014.
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.
