- The left hander ended a very lucrative three week stretch in the Canary Islands with a second win on Sunday. Higgo having now recorded four straight top-10s on the European Tour and risen to No.51 on the world rankings. Higgo carries a fairly standard bag of equipment for a Tour player, with one of the interesting areas being his wedge setup. Carrying a very standard loft gapping, Higgo’s wedges all carry almost the same amount of bounce throughout, with the grinds on the soles offering some versatility, but somewhat rarely no wedge in the bag with a bounce angle lower than 10˚.
- The soon to be 22-year-old is yet another of the Tour players to opt for Fujikura Ventus range of shafts. Playing the Blue version, offering mid-flight, the shafts have seen an enormous amount of popularity across all the world’s Tours, with Ventus shafts used by both the winners on the PGA and European Tours this week.
- Higgo’s win is the eighth on the European Tour in 2021 from 13 events for Titleist’s Pro V1 range of golf balls.
