Golfer wins $126K at 30th annual PCCC

Posted online

Professional golfer Harry Higgs yesterday won the 30th annual Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.

Higgs took home $126,000 for his first-place finish at the Highland Springs Country Club tournament on the PGA Korn Ferry Tour, according to a news release. The total purse of $700,000 was disbursed among 67 golfers, said Sean Wildhack, a spokesman for the PGA Tour.

The 27-year-old played in Springfield-area junior golf events before his professional career. He grew up in Overland Park, Kansas.

“I’ll take a win anywhere, but it’s nice to be home,” Higgs said in the release. “It just means a lot.”

Higgs won with pars on the final six holes. Steve Wheatcroft and Andrew Svoboda tied for second. Last year’s winner was Martin Trainer.

The PCCC benefits children’s charities, with a donation presentation to be held at a later date. In November 2018, 49 charities, including Children’s Smile Center and the Silver Dollar City Foundation, received $920,352 in funding, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.

Late hotelier John Q. Hammons brought the tournament to Springfield in 1990, according to SBJ archives.
