Bio

First-tee entrance song would be "The Star-Spangled Banner." Would like to trade places with any billionaire with a private jet. Biggest thrill in golf was being a member of the winning SMU American Athletic Conference Championship in 2014 and advancing to the NCAA Championship match-play quarterfinals. Biggest thrill outside of golf was throwing a complete-game shutout in the state baseball finals at age 13

Motto is "I didn't come all this way to lay up." Not many people know "I'm a good dancer." Bucket-list item is winning the Masters.

Had the opportunity to play golf with U.S. President George W. Bush at Preston Trail GC in Dallas. Loves to help people learn to play golf. Favorite charity is The First Tee of Dallas. If not a professional golfer, would like to be a senator or governor or possibly president

Favorite courses he has played are Cypress Point GC and Spring Hill GC. Favorite professional team is the Philadelphia Eagles. Favorite books are Discipline Equals Freedom and Putting Out of Your Mind.

Single best sporting event attended is game two of the 2015 Major League Baseball American League Championship Series between the Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Blue Jays,

Other favorites include LeBron James (non-golfer athletes), American Sniper and One Survivor (books), Kansas City and Bogota, Colombia (cities), Nicklaus GC at LionsGate and Cypress Point (golf courses), "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Shutter Island" (movies) and "Homeland,, "The League" and "Californication" (TV shows)

Brother, Alex, is also a professional golfer. Father, Mike, mother, Denise, and brother, Alex, would round out his dream foursome. Brother, Alex, played college golf at Southern Methodist. His uncle is a World War II veteran. Once made a hole-in-hole in competition that flew right in the hole and made his mother scream out loud.

Brother, Alex, is also a professional golfer who played at SMU. The brothers overlapped during Harry's senior year as Alex was a freshman.

Had the opportunity to play golf with President George W. Bush at Preston Trail GC in Dallas.

Missed a week of high school to compete in the Korn Ferry Tour's KC Golf Classic near his hometown as a 17-year-old amateur.

If not a professional golfer, would like to be a senator or governor or possibly president

College teammates at SMU with Bryson DeChambeau.

Grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. Is a huge Kansas City Royals fan. Was on a red-eye flight between PGA TOUR Latinoamérica events when the Royals won the World Series in 2015.

Brother, Alex, serves as his caddie and played on the golf team with him at SMU. Alex had a stint as a professional golfer before regaining his amateur status and began serving as caddie in February 2020.

Despite living in Dallas, is a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, a rival of the Dallas Cowboys, due to spending the first few years of his life in the Philadelphia area.

Is very friendly and will talk to anyone. Friends say he is often late because he gets caught up talking to people along the way.

Likes renting houses at tournaments and staying with fellow TOUR players, including Kelly Kraft, Keith Mitchell, J.T. Poston and Sepp Straka. Caddies are always welcome.

Prefers to order in or get room service as opposed to going out to eat. Does not like long dinners.

Drink of choice is vodka and water.

Grew up in Overland Park, Kansas.

College teammates at SMU included Bryson DeChambeau and Kelly Kraft.

If not a professional golfer, would like to run for political office, whether it be senator, governor or president.
