Nick Taylor: Golfer Profile

Victory in the Canadian Open in June made Nick Taylor a national hero as there had not been a home winner of the event since 1954.

A third-round 63 propelled Taylor into the thick of things, then he battled hard on a challenging Sunday to get himself into a play-off against Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood.

Taylor and Fleetwood could not be separated through three sudden-death holes, but on the fourth something truly magical happened. Taylor holed an eagle putt from 72 feet, making history and sending the assembled masses into raptures.

The post-putt celebrations will live long in the memory of everyone in attendance, including Taylor's friend, Adam Hadwin, who got wrestled to the ground amid the outpouring of joy.

Taylor has won three times on the PGA Tour, with long gaps in between each success.

Where is Nick Taylor from?

What are Nick Taylor's career earnings?

Taylor has banked almost $15m in PGA Tour prize money alone. He was chasing a cheque for $18m in this week's Tour Championship.

What is Nick Taylor's net worth?

Taylor's net worth is estimated to be around $5m. He is a former world number one amateur and has been a professional since 2010, securing plenty of endorsement deals.

Who is Nick Taylor's caddie?

David Markle is Taylor's caddie. Dave, as he is known, played professionally on the European Challenge Tour and he and Taylor have known each other since their teenage years.

What clubs does Nick Taylor use?

Taylor has a mixed bag. His clubs are largely made up of Titleists - and he uses a Titleist ball - but his five-wood is a TaylorMade SIM2 Max. He also uses a TaylorMade Spider Tour putter.

What is Nick Taylor's Presidents Cup record?

Unlike his compatriots Corey Conners, Adam Hadwin and Taylor Pendrith, Taylor is yet to get a taste of Presidents Cup combat.

Given the nerve he showed when winning the Canadian Open, it seems likely he will be on the mind of the next Internationals captain, especially as it will be a Canadian.

Mike Weir will be the Internationals chief and the Presidents Cup will be staged at Royal Montreal. Perhaps Conners, Hadwin, Pendrith and Taylor will all be on the side.

When is Nick Taylor playing next?

Taylor seems likely to take a break after the conclusion of the Tour Championship.

The Fortinet Championship in the middle of September will be a PGA Tour option should he be keen to get straight back into action.
