Taylor Named Co-Player Of The Month
Nov. 21, 2008
SEATTLE, Wash. -- Washington junior Nick Taylor has been named Pac-10 co-player of the month for November, along with USC's Tim Sluiter. The two shared medalist honors at the CordeValle Collegiate Nov. 3-5.
The Pac-10 honor for his play during November is just another accolade in an already successful fall season for Taylor, which included two top-10 finishes in three collegiate tournaments, his first career medalist honor and a runner-up finish at the World Amateur Team Classic in Adelaide, Australia. He was also named the Pacific Northwest Golf Association's Men's Player of the Year last week.
At the CordeValle Collegiate, Taylor birdied three of his final four holes to earn a share of the individual title. His rounds of 71-71-70-212 earned him the honor of being the only player to card a score under par after each round. Taylor finished the three-month fall season with a team-leading stroke average of 72.22 per 18 holes and six of his nine rounds were under par.
Taylor is ranked No. 18 in Golfweek's Scratch Players World Amateur standings and is No. 22 in the Men's Individual Collegiate Rankings. Washington is No. 12 in Golfweek's team rankings. Taylor was the UW's second player of the month this fall, as junior Chris Killmer was selected for the honor in September.
