As he prepared for the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, very much in contention to win the event, TOUR rookie Nick Taylor was able to draw on his experience in this year’s Tour Championship, just over a month before.

Entering the final round at the Tour Championship near the bottom of the leaderboard, Taylor knew he needed a strong performance to secure his TOUR status for 2014-15. He produced a strong performance indeed, firing a 7-under 63 at TPC Sawgrass (Dye’s Valley Course) to move into the top 25 for the event and punch his ticket to TOUR.
