Jackson - Nick Taylor fired eight birdies in a six-under par 66 on Sunday to capture his first US PGA Tour title, winning by two strokes at the Country Club of Jackson.
The Canadian's 16-under par total of 272 gave him a two-shot victory over Americans Boo Weekley and Jason Bohn. Weekley also closed with a 66 while Bohn closed out the $4 million Sanderson Farms Championship with a 69 for 274.
John Rollins, who started the day with a two-shot lead, settled for a one-over par 73 to head a group on 275 alongside Justin Thomas, who posted a 67, and Peter Uihlein, who rocketed up the leaderboard with a seven-under 65.
Taylor went into the final round four shots off the pace, but precision off the tee and some improved putting saw him erase the deficit with a four-under front nine and carry on to victory.
After hitting only 21 of 42 fairways in regulation through the first three rounds, Taylor hit 10 of 14 on Sunday and needed just one putt at 10 holes.
His eight birdies included three in a row from the 13th through the 15th, where his precise tee shot left him 86 yards to the pin.
He hit a wedge to 11 feet and curled in the birdie putt.
Taylor, a graduate of the Web.com tour, led by three with two holes to play, and even a three-putt bogey at the last wouldn't allow his closest followers to catch him.
