12. Higgs has played several holes with former President George W Bush. They did so at Preston Trails GC in Dallas.

Speaking to the PGA Tour Higgs said of the experience; "He’s good. He’s really good. Kelly Kraft and a few other Dallas-based guys have played 18 holes with him and they say he’s hard to beat. He’s not ashamed to get one or two too many strokes, but how are you supposed to say no to someone who served our country for that long? That’s the least you can do. If you’re playing him for a Coke, it’s like, “OK, I’ll buy you a Coke, Mr. President.”
