Taylor Named Pac-10's Best Player In March
April 7, 2009
SEATTLE, Wash. -- Good things come in bunches for University of Washington junior Nick Taylor, as he won Pac-10 Player of the Month honors for his accomplishments on the course during March.
Taylor, who shared the same honor in November with USC's Time Sluiter, shot par or better in five of his six rounds in March. Those scores earned him medalist honors at the Oregon Duck Invitational and a runner-up finish at the Fresno State Lexus Golf Classic.
This is just another accolade to an already impressive 2008-09 season for Taylor, who has broken the single-season record for medalist awards by a Husky with three. Along with his medal at the Oregon Invite, he also was the top name on the board at the CordeValle Collegiate in November, and the Hawai'i-Hilo Intercollegiate in February. Those victories make him second on the Huskies' all-time list, and just one behind Brock Mackenzie. He is leading the UW team in stroke average, scoring at a 71.95 mark, and rounds under par with 12. Taylor has five top-10 finishes this season.
Taylor earned the third conference Player of the Month award for the Dawgs. Junior Chris Killmer won the award for his play in September.
