The history books may show 2014 as the year British Columbia golfers thrust themselves onto the world stage, but to understand how this happened, you have to go 150 miles south, to the campus of the University of Washington Huskies golf teams.
 
Men’s coach Matt Thurmond and women’s coach Mary Lou Mulflur have successfully mined a sterling crop of British Columbia golfers who have bright futures in front of them.
 
Who couldn’t be happy for Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor, a proud UW alum who won the Sanderson Farms Championship on Nov. 9, the first PGA TOUR victory for a Canadian golfer since Stephen Ames won the Children’s Miracle Network Classic 5 years ago?

As a proud father of Taylor and Mackenzie, Fraser Mulholland knows what it’s like to be thinking of other’s needs before his own.
