It won't be the biggest cheque Nick Taylor ever cashes during his PGA TOUR life but the experience he gained at this year's Hyundai Tournament of Champions is something he'll be able to take to the bank week after week.
 
Taylor, from Abbotsford, B.C., finished the 72-hole winners-only event at (-5), well behind the top finishers this year. The thing is though, he never had a round above par on the demanding Plantation Course and that memory will stick with him moving forward.

The third day of any PGA TOUR event is known as moving day, and on the opening hole it looked like Canadian Nick Taylor had his game packed properly for some good scoring as he tried to move up the leaderboard at the winners-only Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
 
But then his moving van got stuck in neutral.
 
After recording a birdie on the par 4, 520-yard opener with a laser 3-iron to within four feet, Taylor bogeyed the par 3, 221-yard second when he airmailed his second shot, with a 3 iron, to the back of the green and three-putted.

Even as a PGA  TOUR pro there are lessons to be learned in tournament play and that was the case for Canadian Nick Taylor during day two of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
 
Sitting in a tie for 12th after the opening 18 holes at 4-under par, Taylor never really got anything going on his second 18 while playing partner Zach Johnson, the tourney's defending champion, lit it up.
 
For Taylor, an even par 73 saw him tumble down the leaderboard after his opening round of 69.

Eight birdies.
 
That’s what Merritt’s Roger Sloan produced at Bear Mountain on Wednesday during an informal round of golf at the course which inked a sponsorship deal with Sloan earlier this autumn.
 
The affable PGA TOUR rookie, just back from cashing a $13,603 cheque in Mexico on the weekend, paid Bear Mountain a visit and was subjected to a round of golf with myself and fellow golf journalists Bob Weeks and Ian Hutchinson.
 
The 27-year-old hit towering drives, laser approaches and barely needed to putt his tap-in birdies, but still found the time to give us ‘the stick’ when we – and I mean me - poked the bear.
