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.

With every top 10 finish, Watney's caddie, Chad Reynolds, goes another week without a haircut. The two hatched a plan that there would be no haircut for Reynolds until Nick, who moved to Las Vegas to be closer to Las Vegas Golf Region resident and pro Butch Harmon, finishes out of the top 10. Watney has finished in the top 10 in four-straight tournaments and was looking good for a fifth after two rounds of the Cadillac Championship. .--By Brian Hurlburt.
