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.

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.

Another Rebel Just Misses Winning Masters

Las Vegas, Nevada (April 11, 2011)--In 2009, former UNLV golf All-American Chad Campbell lost in a playoff at The Masters to Angel Cabrera.

Nick Watney Says Lessons Are Learned As Masters Looms

Las Vegas, Nevada (April 7, 2011)--There is a pretty decent argument out there that Las Vegas PGA Tour pro Nick Watney is playing the best golf of anybody in the world right now. Watney has a win, a long streak of top 10 finishes, plus a memory bank of on-course lessons that has him ready to win his first major championship. The question? Will it be this week in Augusta at The Masters. --By Brian Hurlburt.

PGA Tour's Rickie Fowler Is Now a Former Las Vegas Golfer

Las Vegas, Nevada (March 26, 2011)--We broke the news that Rickie Fowler was no longer living in Las Vegas last fall, but thought we might just update the news on this matter. Fowler has become just one of many PGA Tour players to make Jupiter, Florida, home. In the process, he left the Las Vegas Golf Region behind. The good news: Fowler left but word is that former UNLV 4-time All-American and PGA Tour champ Ryan Moore has purchased a new home in Las Vegas, after living in Scottsdale for a time (splitting time between is native state of Washington).
