ST. SIMONS Island, Georgia. Two weeks ago, after an inspiring second round of 62 at the World Cup of Technology, Harry Higgs talked about allowing himself to “spiral up” and enjoy the moments when things are going well.
He slipped away over the weekend in Mexico and finished the T-32. However, with another solid second round at the RSM Classic, he gets another chance to spiral up.
Higgs moved into the lead by riding 63 Fridays at the Seaside Course without a scarecrow and admitted that his weekend in Mexico was an important learning opportunity.

“I start [last Saturday] I cry and whine that things don’t go my way and I’m a bad shooter. Nobody cares if you’re a bad shooter except me, my family and my brother, who is my caddy,” Higgs said. “I didn’t do an amazing job over the weekend on every frame, which you probably never do, to get comfortable and basically just tell yourself this is what I want to happen.”
Higgs has gone so far as to consider his week in Mexico to be career-changing, hinting at both his game and opportunity given his limited status on the PGA Tour after a rocky 2021-22 season.
“I need to stop and thank Keith Mitchell, my great friend. World Wide Technologies is his sponsor and he pretty much got me to play in this tournament with a sponsorship exemption,” Higgs explained. “I feel like this is really close to changing my career. What I learned about myself there, what I put into the game, how I performed it, brought me to this point two days later. I hope you fast forward a couple more days and this win will obviously change my life and my career.”
