Alex Heard

I'm a well-rounded athlete who played middle school football and basketball and Little League baseball in addition to golf. But above all... I am a golfer, a leader, and a team player.

Who I Am


I'm a Golfer

  • I love to compete. In classes, camps, skills challenges, and almost anything, I really enjoy competition, and I do my best when things get tough. I love match play, and I am undefeated for 2 years in the Ballenisles Cup, which is a Ryder Cup-style event that includes the best players in South Florida.

  • I know how to win. I have won dozens of local tournaments, three US Kids regional championships, the US Kids Florida State championship, and the Doral-Publix international. I won six events on the SFPGA Prep Tour, and won Player of the Year. I won POY again the following year in the SFPGA Challenge Tour by winning the final 5 events of the season. I won the opening event of the 2020 SFPGA Champions Tour overall 13-18 division by 11 strokes. I know how to close the deal and win.

  • I know how to go low. In US Kids local tours, I shot 33 or less more than 20 times. At the Doral-Publix, I shot a 63 to win. At a Hurricane Tour event, I shot 68 and won on my first time at the course. I shot a 67 in a US Kids event, including a  6-under 30 on the front 9. I fired 9 birdies in my final round in an FJT event. I shot a 23 for 9 holes on a par 30 course in a middle school match. I shot 70 in my final round in two consecutive events to start my 2020 season; both of these were the low round of the entire tournament field.


I'm a student

I was a “straight-A” student through middle school, and now carry a 4.2 GPA in my freshman year of high school at American Heritage School Boca/Delray. I earned the President’s Education Award for Outstanding Academic Excellence, and was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society in 2019. I won the school, county, and Florida state National History Day competition and defended my exhibit in Washington, D.C.


I give back

I was the youngest winner of the Pepsi Little People's Spirit of Giving award for my charitable efforts.  I won the SFPGA Birdie Club award two years in a row, raising a total of more than $12,000 for the SFPGA Charitable Foundation. I also helped raise money through golf donations to build two schools in Jamaica, and traveled there in 2018 and 2019 to assist with the finishing and grand opening ceremonies. I run in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation events, and I volunteer at our annual Little (Big) Break skills challenge and our Family Golf Day charity fundraiser.
