KAPALUA, Hawaii - Nick Taylor is still reaping the benefits of being a winner on the

KAPALUA, Hawaii - Nick Taylor is still reaping the benefits of being a winner on the PGA Tour. Walace Brazil Jersey .A three-stroke victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship in November not only provided the Canadian with a nice payday and security on golfs premier circuit, it also qualified him for this weeks Hyundai Tournament of Champions.So while people in his home country suffer through a January deep freeze, Taylor will be playing high level golf in balmy Hawaiian temperatures.(The victory) still hasnt set in. Hopefully sooner rather than later, Taylor, who was born in Winnipeg and grew up in Abbotsford, B.C., said Thursday. But trying to figure things out in Maui is a good thing.Taylor earned US$720,000 for his 2014 victory, and, more importantly, a two-year playing card on the PGA Tour. Hes part of a group of six Canadians with status on the PGA Tour this year. Graham DeLaet, Mike Weir, David Hearn, Roger Sloan and Adam Hadwin are the others.The victory wrapped up a whirlwind season for the 26-year-old. He started the year with a few starts on PGA Tour Canada, and then a number of tournaments on the Tour before earning his PGA Tour card.Everything that happened were good things, but it has been so exhausting. There will be some rust this first week or two, but in the long run, I needed some time off, said Taylor, who returned to Abbotsford over Christmas. This week is very relaxed, it’s the best-case scenario to start the season.The Tournament of Champions, which begins Friday at Kapaluas Plantation Resort, features a small field of 34 golfers and no cut. Even if Taylor, the lone Canadian, finishes in last place, hell walk away with approximately $60,000.Its a far cry from the money he used to play for.Taylors rise to the winners circle on the PGA Tour could be traced back to his success on PGA Tour Canada. It allowed him to jump to the Tour, then the main tour, very quickly.PGA Tour Canada president Jeff Monday said Taylors victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship validated the model that was instigated when the PGA Tour took over the old Canadian Tour.Monday said that PGA Tour Canada members always knew following a path like Taylors was a possibility, but to actually see it done just confirmed their beliefs.When you think about it, Nick was on PGA Tour Canada in September of 2013 and just over 13 months later, hes winning on the PGA Tour, he said. When you step back from that for a second, you realize that’s pretty good stuff.Taylor, who was once ranked as the top male amateur golfer in the world, hasnt let any of his recent success go to his head.Coming out as the No. 1-ranked amateur, theres great expectations a lot of times and its hard to live up to them, said Monday. But everyone Ive talked to says Nick hasnt changed one bit.Hes a quality young man, and anyone he meets he will influence them, including kids, added Scott Simmons, the CEO of Golf Canada. I would certainly call him a role model we could all be proud of.Taylor seemed ready for the challenge of being golfs newest Canadian ambassador.It wasnt until recently that people across the country recognized what I did on the PGA Tour. If people across the country are looking up to me now, its great. Ill try to do my best, he said.Taylors goals for 2015 changed after his victory. Hes now free to choose his schedule without worry, and hes gotten into a number of larger tournaments like the PGA Championship, which will be his first major as a professional.Hes also got his eyes on the Rio Olympics in 2016.I need to slowly try to build up some world-ranking points, but that would be pretty amazing, he said.For now, Taylor is enjoying the moment. Seeing how far hes come, he said its hard not to.I think for me, personally, Im ahead of the game, he said. Theres so much luck involved, you never know when youre going to win. Its been a crazy few months and I’ve exceeded expectations so far. Blank Jersey . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark.
