Josh and his golf star younger brother Nick both attended Yale Secondary School. There, Josh was a three-sport athlete who played golf, basketball, and volleyball.

Moreover, the elder Taylor brother’s high school achievements include a victory in the Canadian Junior Golf Association Tour & Western Canadian Junior Golf Tour three times.

While at UTEP, Josh got the Conference USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

After graduation, he opted for a music venture rather than golf.

Though, it won’t stop him from supporting his brother Nick in his golf career. The Canadian golfer often shares throwback pictures with his brother on his social media.

They keep their brotherhood low-key from the media, but it’s undeniable that the two are forever ready to lend ears & hands to each other.

Not wrong to say they are more of best friends than brothers.
