Las Vegas Golfers Watney, Piercy Near Lead at PGA Tour Nelson Event

Las Vegas, Nevada (May 28, 2011)--It seems like it has been awhile since some Las Vegas golfers on the PGA Tour had a chance to win a tournament. But that could change entering the final rounds of the HP Byron Nelson because Nick Watney and Scott Piercy are well inside the top 10 after two rounds.

Las Vegas' Charley Hoffman Delivers Chance To Play With PGA Tour Pro, Help Out

Las Vegas, Nevada (May 24, 2011)--Some PGA Tour pros boast about how they help charity but basically leave the work to their minions. That is not the case with Las Vegas resident and former UNLV golfer Charley Hoffman who is actively involved in events in Las Vegas and San Diego that benefit his foundation. Recently, the management of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open announced that the Charley Hoffman Foundation Las Vegas Pro-Am is scheduled for September 26, 2011. --By Brian Hurlburt. 

Las Vegas PGA Tour Star Adam Scott Changes Caddie, Putter

Las Vegas, Nevada (May 21, 2011)--The only constant is change, as they say, and for former Las Vegas Golf Region resident Adam Scott, that is the case. A couple years ago, the former UNLV golfer ended his teacher-golfer relationship with Las Vegas' Butch Harmon, and now recently he has changed to a belly putter. Now comes word he has parted ways with long-time caddie Tony Navarro, a legend who previously worked with Greg Norman. Scott teed it up at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial this week. --By Brian Hurlburt.

Las Vegas Golfer Natalie Gulbis Does the Runway at Trump

Las Vegas, Nevada (April 24, 2011)--Natalie Gulbis has always been more than just an LPGA Tour star. Gulbis, who has lived in the Las Vegas Golf Region for several years, has become a celebrity on and off the course, the most recent evidence of this fact being that she recently hosted--and walked the runway--a poolside fashion show at Trump International in Las Vegas. On the course, Gulbis works with Butch Harmon at his school located at Las Vegas' Rio Secco Golf Club. --By Brian Hurlburt.

Las Vegas Golf Notes From Valero Texas Open

Las Vegas, Nevada (April 16, 2011)--Uh oh. Las Vegas resident Kevin Na recorded a 16 during the first round of the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open and now his name might be used when someone goes big--really big--on a single hole. Such was the case when Richard Johnson made a nine during his round and then tweeted about it later, calling it a "Kevin Na" moment. Also, Charley Hoffman, who puked earlier in the week, had a share of the second round lead while fellow Las Vegas golfer Adam Scott was one off the pace. --Staff report.

Las Vegas PGA Tour Star Charley Hoffman Pukes In Air Not On Greens

Las Vegas, Nevada (April 15, 2011)--In the golf vernacular, the term 'puking' is used when somebody loses nerve over a three-footer and misses a putt that could win a match. But several PGA Tour players were quite literally 'puking' in the days leading up to the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open and it had nothing to do with what was happening on the course. Las Vegas PGA Tour star Charley Hoffman was one of those golfers, and he proudly threw up while taking part in a special Air Force Orientation Flight at Randolph Air Force Base. --By Brian Hurlburt.
