UW Golfer Nick Taylor Going Happy Gilmore on Opponents

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

“Somebody’s closer!” — Happy Gilmore to Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore

University of Washington junior Nick Taylor has probably been thinking the same thing lately. Taylor on Tuesday captured medalist honors at the Oregon Duck Invitational after shooting 70-73-68—211. It’s the third time this season Taylor’s finished first at a tournament, which sets a school record. He’s also won the CordeValle Collegiate and the Hawaii-Hilo Invitational.

As a team, the Huskies are currently ranked No. 12 among all colleges by Golfweek. Taylor is ranked No. 27 individually, nine spots behind teammate Richard Lee, who has seven top-10 finishes in eight events this season.

The Huskies, for whom Gold Mountain Golf Club director of golf operations Scott Alexander is a volunteer assistant coach, are back in action to the U.S. Collegiate on April 5-7 in Alphretta, Ga.
