Las Vegas PGA Tour Star Charley Hoffman Hits Million For Charity

Las Vegas, Nevada (January 27, 2013)--Vegas is lucky to have certain residents. And Vegas is lucky to have Charley and Stacy Hoffman. Charley Hoffman is now a PGA Tour veteran and champion, and was a member of the 1998 UNLV Golf team which won the NCAA Championship. Charley made the decision to stay in Las Vegas following his time at UNLV, and the Hoffmans have dedicated themselves to giving back to this community and the San Diego area, where Charley was born and raised. This week, the Charley Hoffman Foundation held a fundraiser in conjunction with the Farmers Insurance Open and also went over the $1 million mark in total funds raised over the years. --By Brian Hurlburt.

Vegas Golfer Inbee Park Earns 3rd LPGA Tour Win, Top 5 Rolex Rank

Las Vegas, Nevada (October 15, 2012)--It got pretty quiet for Inbee Park for a few years following her break through victory at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. Park, who won Nevada state championships playing for Las Vegas' Bishop Gorman High School, was destined to be the LPGA Tour's next big star. By becoming the youngest champ in Open history--19 yrs, 11 months--she only added to the expectations. But she went several years before landing in the winner's circle again, which she has now done twice in 2012. Her most recent win, at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, also moved her up to fifth in the Rolex World Rankings. --By Brian Hurlburt, Follow @LVGolfInsider.
