Nick TaylorCOLUMBUS, Ohio (Kevin Prise/PGATOUR.COM) — Nick Taylor's professional career didn't get off to the quickest start. The former No. 1-ranked amateur the world, Taylor developed his game on PGA TOUR Canada and other smaller tours for a few years, after graduating from the University of Washington in 2010 with a degree in economics.

It wasn't the rapid rise to the top of the game that many might have expected, as Taylor's inconsistencies off the tee kept him from advancing to final stage of the PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament in his first few years as a professional.

alt"From a property that offered every variety of terrain for golf holes, Stanley Thompson, in his element, was naturally able to produce ... a plan that will provide for every requirement of present day golf."

Those words were written in 1934 in Canadian Golfer, but it turns out the writer's author's remarks about Sunningdale Golf and Country Club ring true to this day.

The London, Ont. private club, which includes two 18-hole designs, one by Thompson and one by his associate, Robbie Robinson, will host the Tour Championship for PGA Tour Canada this week. The tour's Top 60 players will test a throwback course from another era, but the variety and the interest of its holes have kept it relevant in an era of titanium drivers and ProV1 golf balls.
