Who Is Harry Higgs' Caddie?
Harry Higgs has one of the closest relationships with his caddie on Tour because it is his younger brother Alex.
The younger Higgs shot to prominence during the 2021 PGA Championship because he was due to compete in the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball at Chambers Bay that weekend. Unfortunately, because he was carrying the bag for Harry who was going into the weekend just four shots back, Alex decided to stay on the bag at the Major.
Speaking at the time Alex said; “It was a win-win going into the week for me. I love [my four-ball partner] to death, but I think I probably would have picked this outcome over the other one. We can always qualify next year.”
This looked to be a good decision because Higgs finished in a tie for 4th, behind Phil Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen and Brooks Koepka.

The pair have been working together for a while now and part of their success is being able to add an element of fun on the course. For example Alex often promises cocktails or money if Harry pulls off a shot.
“Every now and again, you hit it in a bunker and you get up there and maybe you’re irritated it’s in a bunker but it’s in a good spot, and he’ll just say, ‘Hey, man, $100 if you hole this,'” Harry said. “Like that just gets you in a good mood, in a good frame of mind to pull off a great shot.”
Like Harry, Alex also played on the golf team at Southern Methodist University and competed in the 2013 US Amateur. In an event won by Matt Fitzpatrick, and with players like Bryson DeChambeau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and a whole host of future PGA Tour players competing, Alex shot 86-76 over two rounds.
A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees), Nike Covert Tour 2.0 (19 degrees)
Irons (4-PW): Titleist AP2
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 54˚, 58˚
Putter: Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6
