Vaughn Taylor opened the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 3-under-par 32-35=67 to establish an early target.
This is just his sixth start on the PGA TOUR this season, but Taylor is 169th in the FedExCup standings, so it's not a stretch to expect him to challenge the top 125 and get into the Playoffs. He went 5-for-13 in scoring opportunities today with five birdies. Three of them ranged 11-14 feet. He also squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from 22-and-a-half feet at the par-4 13th.

Vaughn Taylor has gained entry into this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He started the week as the 10th alternate. He was given a tee time at TPC Four Seasons following two withdrawals today and the withdrawal of alternate Tag Ridings early in the week. Since TPC Four Seasons first started hosting all four rounds in 2008, Taylor is just 1-for-4 with a T40 in 2011. He's perfect in four starts this season and sits 166th in the FedExCup standings, pretty solid for a guy on Past Champion status. He's also 4-for-5 on the Tour where he ranks 64th in earnings. Worst case, the 39-year-old is headed for the Tour Finals in a few months.

Vaughn Taylor has crashed the field at the Northern Trust Open.

Taylor gained entry by virtue of his top 10 at Pebble Beach on Sunday. He's now 2-for-2 this season with a T20 at the Sanderson Farms Championship as well. It's been three years since the former Ryder Cupper connected top 20s. Even though his current "streak" consists of starts three months apart, it proves that he's been able to sustain improvements he's made in his game. Taylor will be making his ninth start at the NTO but first since 2012. He's cashed in his last three trips.

With a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in his final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Vaughn Taylor posted 15-under 272 to secure a top 10.

At last check, Taylor sat T7 on the leaderboard. He hit 14 greens in regulation and buried seven birdies today. Three of his conventional conversions ran 11-15 feet, but he also holed out for birdie from the rough six yards away at the difficult par-5 14th. If there was anything about which to be disappointed, it's that he whiffed on a par saves inside six feet at the par-4 15th and 16th holes where he squared bogeys, but he'll leave town with the consolation that it's his first top 10 since the Wells Fargo Championship in May of 2013. The top 10 will also grant Taylor entry into this week's Northern Trust Open if he accept the exemption.

Vaughn Taylor fashioned a top 25 in his only start of the 2014-15 campaign and now turns his attention to this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Taylor posted a T20 at the Sanderson Farms Championship and continue his attempt to regain PGA TOUR status. Using the Past Champions status this week, he would love to make the most of it and earn more starts down the road. With a 4-for-7 record at this event, there is hope, but gamers should look elsewhere while filling out their rosters.

In his only start of the fall, Vaughn Taylor picked off a T20 at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

It was his first top-60 payday on the PGA TOUR since the same tournament was contested in July of 2013. He made only three starts on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, electing to ply his trade on the Tour this year. Alas, he came up short at the Finals this past September, so he's in the same position in which he entered last season. However, with the success in Mississippi contributing early, it could prove to sway Taylor to commit more to PGA TOUR events than concurrent stops on the secondary circuit when it rolls around in a couple of months. He'll turn 39 years of age in March.

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 Tour last year, Taylor looks like a strong bet to get into contention this week.

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

Taylor ranks 24th on the 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 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 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 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.
