Harry Higgs tests positive for COVID, WDs from Vivint Houston Open

HOUSTON — Harry Higgs was forced to withdraw from the Vivint Houston Open after he tested positive for COVID-19, the PGA Tour announced on Tuesday.

Higgs had finished second in the Safeway Open to start the 2020-21 season, falling to Stewart Cink by two strokes, equalling the runner-up finish he posted at the Bermuda Championship in October 2019.

Higgs had seven top 25 finishes last season, which was his rookie year on the Tour. He has a pair of professional wins, one on the Korn Ferry Tour and another on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica.

“While I am disappointed to have to withdraw this week, I am grateful that I drove to Houston by myself and was alone as I awaited my pre-tournament screening results,” said Higgs. “I look forward to returning to competition when it is safe to do so.”

Kramer Hickok, who finished T-8 at the Bermuda Championship last week and recently experimented with the maximum legal limit for club length, will replace Higgs in the field.
