Not one of the four PGA Tour pros with clear Las Vegas ties made the cut at the FBR Open, the PGA Tour's annual party in Phoenix. Robert Gamez, Chad Campbell, Charley Hoffman and Ryan Moore all played but didn't advance to the weekend. Troy Matteson, the 2006 FRYS.com Open (Las Vegas' PGA Tour event) champion, finished 14th.

Gamez grew up in Las Vegas and graduated from Clark High School before becoming an All-American a Arizona and then winning two events in his rookie year on the PGA Tour.

Campbell played for UNLV, and is now one of the world's best players.

Moore enjoyed the best amateur season this side of Tiger Woods and when he won the US Amateur, the US Publinx and the NCAA Championship among other big wins. The year was 2004, his junior year at UNLV.

Charley Hoffman also played at UNLV and recently won the PGA Tour's Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.
