Las Vegas, Nevada (October 5, 2013)–PGA Tour week in Las Vegas kicks off October 12 with the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame Night of Induction and runs through October 21 when the host course, TPC Summerlin, is opened up for the Tough Day Challenge when golfers have the chance to play the course with the same Sunday pin placements as the PGA Tour pros did in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. And every day–and many nights–in between there are special events, concerts, beer and wine tastings, and more to keep the excitement at all-time high levels. Another highlight of the week is the Public Safety Appreciation Station is hosted by Las Vegas' Shift4 Corporation and offers hospitality and free tickets to local public safety works and their families. And, yes, there will be some pretty high quality PGA Tour golf played as well. –By Brian Hurlburt, Like on Facebook.
