Taylor, who is making his fifth U.S. Open start, made history by becoming the first Canadian in 69 years to win the RBC Canadian Open. He converted a 72-foot eagle putt on the fourth playoff hole to defeat Tommy Fleetwood. Taylor also made U.S. Open history in 2009 when he carded a second-round 65 on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park, the lowest round by an amateur in U.S. Open history. Taylor enjoyed a decorated amateur career, winning the 2007 Canadian Amateur, the 2009 McCormack Medal for being the leading amateur in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, and the 2010 Ben Hogan Award. The former University of Washington star was the runner-up in the 2009 U.S. Amateur Public Links to left-hander Brad Benjamin at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman, Okla.. As a professional, Taylor has won three times on the PGA Tour: the 2014 Sanderson Farms Championship, the 2020 AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach and this year's Canadian Open.
