Highlighted below are some events that Taylor was lucky to share with her fans and supporters.

Taylor Collins Makes Her First Hole In One
Being invited to play the Symetra Tour was a stepping stone to a big year for Taylor. On June 7th 2014, her exceptional performance during the Firekeepers Casino Hotel Championship of the tour became the biggest moment of her professional career. On the 12th hole of the tournament held at Battle Creek Country Club, MI, Taylor defeated one of the most difficult challenges in Golf. With a shot that was neighboring 160 yards away, Taylor Collins drove a 7 iron into the ball that led to her first hole in one. She remembers the moment fondly saying:
“It was a great feeling to finally get my first hole in one. Now that I've broken the barrier, I feel like any shot can go in. I've been working hard on my swing and it's been feeling really solid lately, so it was amazing to hole a 7 iron. It was like a reward for my hard work".
The moment was huge for Taylor and her fans, and the moment received glowing feedback on her social media. She celebrated the achievement with her host family and an appropriately decorated cake.
