Former Highland Park Scot Harrison Frazar is en fuego right now, just three shots out of the lead in the Fedex St. Jude’s Classic in Memphis. The 39-year-old was a three-time all-state player and won two state championships with Highland Park High from 1986-1990. Harrison graduated from University of Texas in 1996 with a degree in Psychology and Business Foundations. He has split time between playing on the PGA Tour and also working in Dallas for a commercial real-estate firm as an analyst for office, retail and industrial acquisitions and development. Frazar has been close but never won a tournament; however, there is some consolation in that he has banked almost $10 million in winnings. The mild-mannered pro has recently begun designing golf courses in Texas, but his passion is spending time with friends and family. Go Harrison!
UPDATE: Harrison Frazar hung on to win in a playoff over Swede Robert Karlsson, ending his 13-year drought and earning him a spot in next year’s Masters tournament. Frazar also took home a check for $1,070,000!
