LOS ANGELES, California (PGA Tour) — As part of an effort to promote and increase diversity in professional golf, the application process for the Northern Trust Open Exemption is now underway. The annual exemption, created and sponsored by Northern Trust Corporation (Nasdaq: NTRS), provides an opportunity for a top golfer who represents the advancement of diversity in golf and wouldn't otherwise be eligible to compete in the 2015 Northern Trust Open, to be held February 18-22 at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

JACKSON, Mississippi (David Brandt/AP) — Nick Taylor was down on his game over the summer, struggling with his putter as he fought to earn a PGA Tour card.
So even he was a little stunned when he was holding a big bronze rooster and celebrating a comeback victory in the Sanderson Farms Championship.
The 26-year-old Taylor overcame a four-shot deficit at the Country Club of Jackson, shooting a 6-under 66 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory over Boo Weekley and Jason Bohn. Taylor is the first Canadian-born winner on the PGA Tour since Mike Weir in 2007.
“It’s kind of hard to believe that I’m in that category now,” Taylor said.

SHANGHAI, China (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Even in the midst of a meltdown, Bubba Watson never lost hope in the HSBC Champions.
He stood on the 16th tee with a two-shot lead. He trudged off the 17th green facing a one-shot deficit behind five players suddenly tied for the lead. And right when it looked as though Watson had blown it, he delivered a finish that not even the creator of "Bubba golf" could have imagined.
From some 60 yards away in a bunker left of the green on the par-5 18th hole, Watson blasted out of the sand and watched his ball roll 25 feet before it dropped for eagle. Watson was so stunned that his eyes widened and he screamed. He didn’t know what else to do.
Moments later, he rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th in a playoff to beat Tim Clark and capture his first World Golf Championship.
