Southern Methodist alum Harry Higgs played his final four holes of last week’s Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Chevrolet in 4-over, falling from inside the top-10 to T22 and falling just shy of the fail-safe number (830 Korn Ferry Tour Points) to cement a spot in The 25 and a PGA TOUR card.
Higgs, last year’s PGA TOUR Latinoamerica, wasted little time in rectifying the matter.
The 27-year-old entered the final round of this week’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper just one stroke off the lead, moved in front with consecutive birdies Sunday at holes 1-3, and posted 5-under 67 at Highland Springs CC to win by two shots at 22-under.
With his first career Korn Ferry Tour victory, Higgs moves to No. 4 on The 25. Not only is his first TOUR card secure, he can now set his sights on the No. 1 spot on the season-long Points race (extending through the three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals), which brings fully exempt 2019-20 TOUR status and a spot in the 2020 PLAYERS Championship.
Here’s what was in Higgs’ bag this week at Highland Springs CC:
Driver (9 degrees): TaylorMade M5
3-wood (15 degrees): TaylorMade M4 Tour
Iron (3): TaylorMade P790
Irons (P-4): TaylorMade P760
Wedges (52, 56, 60): TaylorMade Milled Grind
Putter: TaylorMade Spider Tour
