Harry Higgs BMW Championship

We’re pleased to share that Harry Higgs, a Generational sponsored PGA Tour golf professional, has advanced to the BMW Championship in the FedExCup playoffs. Higgs is one of only four PGA rookies to make the coveted top 70 in the FedExCup standings and participate in the BMW Championship.

Higgs was an impressive 14 under par in the Northern Trust tournament over the weekend (tying for 11th) and advanced to the FedExCup BMW Championship. Higgs surged past a host of other golfers and will now join 69 others to prepare for the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields. Previously ranked 72nd, Higgs is now ranked 48th overall in the FedExCup standings

The FedExCup is a season-long points competition which culminates with the FedExCup Playoffs, a series of three events to determine the FedExCup champion. The FedExCup Playoffs events feature a progressive cut:

  • Field of 125 for THE NORTHERN TRUST (TPC Boston, Norton, Massachusetts)
  • Field of 70 for the BMW Championship (Olympia Fields Country Club, Olympia Fields, Illinois)
  • Field of 30 for the TOUR Championship (East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia), where the FedExCup Champion will be determined

Higgs is now into the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. The Northern Trust tournament whittled the 125 down to 70 for this stage of the FedExCup.

Higgs, born in Camden, NJ, and now residing in Dallas, TX, turned pro in 2014. Higgs played on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica in 2015 and 2018. Higgs was runner-up at the 2018 BMW Jamaican Open, as well as at the 2018 113 Visa Open de Argentina. He won the Diners Club Peru Open in 2018 and led the Order of Merit, securing a tour card on the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour.

Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Group, said, “We have been excited to see Harry grow and develop as a player and are very proud of his accomplishments on the tour his rookie season.”

“We are looking forward to the BMW Championship and watching him continue to establish himself as one of the top pros on the PGA tour.”
