Five years after he burst onto the national golf scene, Nick Taylor was still worrying about one thing: laundry.
 
Taylor won the 2014 Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi on Sunday.
 
His first PGA TOUR victory comes with a $720,000 first-place cheque, a two-year exemption on the PGA TOUR and exemptions into the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits next August and the Players Championship at Sawgrass next May.
 
(But not The Masters in April, because there was a competing WGC event in China last week).

The enormity of today’s win on the PGA TOUR may not have sunk in yet for 26-year old Abbotsford Pro Nick Taylor, but it won’t take long, believe me.

Having to write down a snowman “8” on your scorecard is never a good thing and for Abbotsford natives Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor, that’s what doomed their third rounds at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at the TPC Summerlin in Sin City.
