Vaughn Taylor spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Gotta love the opposite events. So many notables to crawling out of the woodwork to find some form in central Mississippi. Taylor is a two-time PGA TOUR winner and former Ryder Cupper, but the 38-year-old hasn't cracked the top 135 in FedExCup points or earnings since 2011. Today was vintage. He split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 15 greens and converted six birdies, although he parred each of the four par 5s. At 6-under 138, he's four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Vaughn Taylor readies for his first start of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Taylor still finds a way to get to the weekend, as he's posted a positive cuts-made ratio in every season since 2004, but the TOUR starts are becoming fewer and fewer each year. Playing this week on Past Champions status, Taylor will look to make the most out of this rare start. After posting a 17-for-20 record on the Web.com Tour last year, Taylor looks like a strong bet to get into contention this week.

Vaughn Taylor is set to begin the Web.com Tour Championship with a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card in his sights.

Taylor ranks 24th on the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players not already holding a PGA TOUR card for next season. His tie for 10th at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship last week is a big reason as to why. Should he earn enough money to crack the top 25 on the money list this week, he would return to the PGA TOUR. He is a veteran of 273 PGA TOUR starts and is a two-time winner.

Vaughn Taylor makes his annual pilgrimage to TPC River Highlands for this week's Travelers Championship.

Taylor has teed it up here for 10 consecutive years, with an 80% success rate, to boot. The two-time PGA TOUR winner has spent a lot of time on the Web.com Tour this year, recording nine starts while missing the cut just once. Given his track record, this could be a week where Taylor makes his presence known for a round or two. Gamers should consider, but only in the deepest of formats.

Vaughn Taylor has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

Taylor was given one of the final two sponsor exemptions. It will mark his eighth appearance in the tournament and first since he tied for 13th in 2012. He posted top fives in 2006 and 2007. The 38-year-old former Ryder Cupper has made only one start this season due to Past Champion status. That resulted in a T65 in Puerto Rico. So, he's split time on the Web.com Tour where he's 40th on the money list on the shoulders of a 4-for-4 slate.

Vaughn Taylor has been added to the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

Taylor was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday. He was the second of two to fill vacancies this morning. It's a little strange to accept that the two-time PGA TOUR winner and one-time Ryder Cupper is relegated to the Past Champions category this year. He'll turn just 38 years of age on March 9, but he's suffered three consecutive substandard seasons. In his only start in the last five months, he tied for eighth in the Web.com Tour season opener in Colombia. In fact, assuming he's healthy, he should have no problem regaining fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15 via the developmental circuit. Don't count him out this week either as he's 2-for-2 in Puerto Rico with a T14 last year.

Vaughn Taylor returned from a weather delay to post a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship and enters the final round three off the lead at 14-under 202.

Taylor and his playing partners were the only ones left on the course when weather forced a delay of 87 minutes. When he returned, he tapped in for birdie after just missing an eagle attempt from 19'2". He currently ranks 152nd in FedExCup points, so every spot he can make up in the final round could be crucial to his 2013-14 PGA TOUR status.

Vaughn Taylor spun a bogey-free, 33-34=67 in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to reach the midpoint in 10-under 134, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After signing for his opening 67 this morning, he turned right around and rode that momentum to 17 greens in regulation and five birdies, three of which on par 5s. No doubt the fact that the field is playing ball-in-hand on preferred lies will keep scoring low in the second round. As a two-time PGA TOUR winner, Taylor is no stranger to taking it to the house, but he hasn't recorded a top five since the 2010 Barclays.

Vaughn Taylor posted a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

It took two days, but Taylor finally reached the clubhouse. He hit 13 greens in regulation at Annandale and buried six birdies to finish four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Vaughn Taylor established early possession of the clubhouse lead in the opening round of the John Deere Classic with a 5-under-par 34-32=66.

He picked a great time to record his low round of the year. Entering the week ranked 148th in FedExCup points after tailing off since a T10 at Quail Hollow two months ago, Taylor hit 14 greens and circled six birdies today. He rolled in a conventional birdie from 20'8" at the 17th hole before jarring a 10-yarder from off the green at the first. His score will not hold up, however, as he was tied for fifth on the leaderboard when he signed his card.

Vaughn Taylor posted a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the first round of The Greenbrier Classic.

Taylor withdrew after his opening round at AT&T National citing a back injury. The setback coincided with an 8-over-par 79. His lap around The Old White TPC included two birdies and three bogeys, hitting 12 GIR in the process.

Vaughn Taylor is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

Assuming his back, which forced him to withdraw after one round of the AT&T National, will allow him to return, he'll be gunning for his first payday in three appearances at The Old White TPC.

Vaughn Taylor withdrew from the AT&T National following his opening round, citing a back injury.

Vaughn Taylor has been added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

Taylor was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Jason Kokrak withdrew. Taylor has survived eight of nine cuts at TPC River Highlands, three of which resulted in a top 15 including last year's T11. He's 137th in FedExCup points entering the week.

Vaughn Taylor fought through miserable conditions in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the final round, finishing the week at 4-under 284.

Considering that Taylor's week began with him winning an open qualifier just to have a Thursday tee time, his trip to Quail Hollow is a resounding success. In his final lap, he circled three birdies to just two bogeys including a 2-under back nine. While he isn't in the field for THE PLAYERS, should he wind up inside the top 10 he would have a spot in the next full-field event.
