What to know about Højgaard
The Danish golfer currently plays on the PGA Tour and European Tour, and his twin Rasmus is also a professional golfer having both turned pro in 2019.

The 23-year-old was in action at the recent 2024 Masters Tournament where he finished 16th and it is his best performance in a golf major. 
Højgaard is currently placed 34th on the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) and his highest ranking is 30th.
Why Højgaard is one of the favourites 
The 2023 DP World Tour Championship champion is the highest-ranked golfer in the OWGR among those who will compete in the 2024 Corales Puntacana Championship.
Having finished second behind the 2023 Corales Puntacana Championship winner Matt Wallace, Højgaard will be eager to go one step further and win the trophy on Sunday.
"Very disappointing. I had a lot of chances on the back nine today to put some pressure on him," Højgaard said after finishing second at the 2023 Corales Puntacana Championship.
"So I've got a feeling I'm really disappointed right now. Obviously in a short period of time I'll be happy with where I'm at, but you play to win and it's tough coming up one short."
