Warren Little With a second European Tour win since September, Garrick Higgo will make it to the world top 100 and likely secure a spot in his first major at next month’s PGA Championship. It only took Garrick Higgo seven starts to record his first European Tour victory, last year’s Open de Portugal. And 17 starts later, the 21-year-old leftist from South Africa has doubled his numbers. With a back-to-back 63 on the par-70 Meloneras resort course in Gran Canaria, Spain over the weekend, Higgo put himself under par of 25 for a week and claimed victory at the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open. Higgo finished three better than German Maximillian Kieffer, runner-up in Austria last week, who shot a final round 62 that was the best of a low-scoring day in which only 10 of the 74-strong contestants didn’t shoot par or better. . Still, it was Higgo’s display that stood out. Arriving at the back of a T-4 finish in Austria last week, the former Junior Presidents Cup player fared just three times worse than par in a breezy 72 holes across the picturesque 6,715 meter golf course. That’s impressive enough, but perhaps more importantly, Higgo made 25 birdies and two eagles. Combined with his lack of error, those were numbers that no one could match. Not even Kieffer, whose cards were marked by 28 birdies and one eagle, but drawn by a whopping six drop shots and one double bogey.
