UPDATE: Taylor Has Work Cut Out At Canadian Open
Husky All-America golfer Nick Taylor has an uphill battle ahead of himself heading into the second round at the RBC Canadian Open today in Oakville, Ontario.
Taylor, who has enjoyed great success this summer as the runner-up at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship and low amateur at the U.S. Open, posted a seven-over par 79 in the first round, which just came to a close just shy of 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Thursday, after a seven-plus hour delay due to rain, Taylor completed 14 holes and finished the day three-over, but a seven on the par-three seventh, added to his total (Taylor began his round on the 10th hole).
It's unlikely that Taylor will complete his second round today as he's not schedule to tee off again until 6:50 p.m. Eastern Time, meaning he'll be lucky to get nine holes in before darkness.
