Higgo wins Palmetto for 1st PGA victory
RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) Garrick Higgo's day began with a call from South African golfing great Gary Player. It ended in triumph just like so many of Player's Sundays did in his Hall of Fame career.
The 22-year-old Higgo won the Palmetto Championship at Congaree for his first career victory on the PGA Tour, taking the tournament after leader Chesson Hadley squandered a two-shot lead with bogeys on his final three holes.
The 85-year-old Player told his rising, young countryman not to worry about trailing leader Chesson Hadley by six shots starting the final round.
