The Success and The Failures of Lefthanders in Sports

​Congratulations to Garrick Higgo, who became just the fourteenth lefthanded golfer ever to win a PGA Tour event when he won the Palmetto Championship on June 13, 2021.  The 23 year old Higgo is from South Africa and already had 6 international victories, including 3 on the European Tour, when he began playing in the USA in 2021.  He earned his historic win in just his 2nd PGA tour start, and over the past two seasons he has started 25 tour events.  Along with that victory he has finished in the top 25 four other times.
