Canada's Taylor shoots 66 to win Sanderson Farms
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Nick Taylor overcame a four-shot deficit to win the Sanderson Farms Championship, shooting a 6-under 66 on Sunday for a two-stroke victory over Boo Weekley and Jason Bohn.
The 26-year-old Taylor, the first Canadian winner on the PGA Tour since Mike Weir in 2007, played the front nine in 4 under to pull even with the leaders and took control with birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15.
A former University of Washington player from Abbotsford, British Columbia, Taylor three-putted for bogey on No. 18 after taking a three-shot lead into the final hole. He finished at 16-under 272 at the Country Club of Jackson and earned $720,000.
Weekley also had a 66, and Bohn shot 69.
John Rollins had a two-shot lead coming into Sunday, but faded with a 73 to tie for fourth.
