Taylor wins maiden PGA Tour title
Nick Taylor carded a final round 66 to win the US PGA Tour’s Sanderson Farms Championship by two strokes.
The Canadian’s final round included eight birdies which saw him reach a 72-hole score of 16-under-par 272, which was two shots better than Americans Boo Weekley and Jason Bohn, who carded 66 and 69 respectively at the Country Club of Jackson on Sunday.
John Rollins, who started the final round with a two stroke advantage, finished in a tie for third place another stroke further behind after his last round 73.
Joining him on 13-under are Justin Thomas, who posted a 67, and Peter Uihlein, whose fourth round 65 was one of the lowest of the day.
Taylor started his round four strokes off the pace, but quickly knocked off that deficit on the front nine, where he notched four birdies.
He then carded consecutive brides on 13, 14 and 15, which handed him the lead with just three holes to play.
Going into the 17th, he had a three stroke advantage, and even though he three-putted for a bogey on the final hole, none of his challengers were able to take advantage in their closing holes.
“Today I putted unbelievable and the first two days I did, too,” Taylor said after his round.
“I felt very comfortable today. Obviously the last few holes I had some nerves.”
