Several Las Vegas golf pros and amateurs can be found in the Golfweek/Sagarin Power Rankings, the World Ranking or the Golfweek/Titleist Amateur Rankings. The players in the list can be found playing at a number of Las Vegas golf courses including Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, Las Vegas National Golf Club, Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas Resort, Rio Secco Golf Club, TPC Las Vegas, Southern Highlands Golf Club or many others.
Former UNLV Rebel Adam Scott heads the list at number three in the world and number five in the power rankings.
Chad Campbell, another All-American at UNLV, is number 35 in the world but is number 73 in the power ranking.
PGA Tour winner and Las Vegas resident Dean Wilson is number 66 in the world and number 82 in the power rankings.
Another Rebel, Ryan Moore, is number 75 in the world, but all the way down at number 130 in the power rankings.
Troy Matteson, the defending FRYS.com Open Champion (the Las Vegas PGA Tour event), is number 73 in the world but at number 195 in the power ranking. Someone is asleep at the wheel with this power ranking because Matteson has been playing steady all year and will probably win again soon.
