Harry Higgs and his caddie are very close - they're brothers. Alex is the younger of the two, and started caddying for the jovial Harry in February 2020. He played on the golf team with him at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and had a stint as a professional golfer before regaining his amateur status.

Alex, who competed in the 2013 US Amateur, which was won by Matt Fitzpatrick, made the headlines during the 2021 PGA Championship because he was due to compete in the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball at Chambers Bay that weekend. Because he was carrying the bag for Harry, however, who was going into the weekend just four shots back, Alex decided to fulfil his caddying duties and stay by his brother's side. 

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."

Higgs, who describes his younger brother as one of "the best caddies in the game", ended up finishing in a tie for 4th, behind Phil Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen and Brooks Koepka.

Part of their success is being able to add an element of fun on the course. Often, Alex will offers an incentive, in the form of 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."
