A Taylor-made bunker shot
By Torleif Sorenson on 1/12/15
The PGA Tour's Hyundai Tournament of Champions does not conclude until later today, but Canadian golfer Nick Taylor has seemingly already wrapped up the proverbial "shot of the week" competition. During Sunday's third round, Taylor missed the green at the par-3 11th at Kapalua, dumping his tee-shot into the bunker.
He then splashed out and made what NBC's Johnny Miller called the best bunker shot he had seen in a year.
Taylor will start Monday twelve shots behind the leaders, Hideki Matsuyama and Jimmy Walker, but the fact that he won the Sanderson Farms Championship in order to get into the T of C is nothing to be ridiculed — and neither was that difficult bunker shot.

I followed Nick for a few holes at the SFC. He's a strong player. It's cool to be able to say I watched him en route to his first PGA Tour victory, which propelled him to Hawaii and the ToC.
