Taylor on target in Panama, ties for 6th at Web.com Tour event
Nick Taylor notched his first career top-10 finish on the Web.com Tour, tying for sixth place at the Panama Claro Championship in Panama City.
The Abbotsford golfer reeled off three straight rounds of one-under 69 to start the tournament, and closed with a three-under 67 on Sunday.
Taylor began the final round tied for 13th, but birdied three of his first five holes to climb the leaderboard at Panama Golf Club. He encountered a bit of adversity on the back nine, bogeying the 11th and the 16th, but recovered with birdies on 17 and 18.
Taylor earned $21,718, and leaped from 78th to 30th on the Web.com Tour money list at $26,834. The top 25 golfers at season's end earn PGA Tour cards for 2015.
The Yale Secondary grad, formerly the world's No. 1-ranked amateur, is in his first season on the Web.com Tour.
Fellow Abbotsford native Adam Hadwin shot 68-71-76-70 in Panama to finish at +5, tied for 61st. He still boasts a lofty fourth-place ranking on the money list at $140,078, largely due to his breakthrough victory at the Chile Open two weeks ago.
Thanks for all the tweets! Fun day in contention for a bit, nice way to finish the South American swing. #onwardsandupwards— Nick Taylor (@ntaylorgolf59) March 23, 2014
