"Golf has been my life and it has taken me to amazing places. I love this game and am blessed to be in a position where I can grow the game of golf in the state of Idaho. Most importantly, I have two loving and supportive parents along with two younger brothers that have always believed in me. I am recently married to my beautiful wife I met at NNU, Kaitlyn Judy, who was the point guard for the Women’s Basketball Team. We have a miniature Australian Shepherd fur-baby named Maverick that keeps us both busy. I am excited to be with the IGA, and to see how the game of golf will grow in the coming years." -Taylor
