    Seven Questions for Ryan Moore, Golf Pro

    By Matt Jacob

    Nearly a decade into his career, Ryan Moore has yet to get his hands on one of the PGA Tour’s four major championship trophies. However, the Las Vegas resident can at least lay claim to the next best thing.

  • Adam Scott’s Masters Win Ignites Rebels Fans

    When Adam Scott sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole Sunday to win the Masters over Angel Cabrera, he not only overcame the ghosts of Australia's tough-luck past on the links, he also exorcised UNLV's golf demons. Former Rebel Chad Campbell lost the 2009 Masters in a memorable three-way playoff also, ironically, to Cabrera. Scott played for a year at UNLV, in 1999.

    Scarlet and Gray on the Greens

    By Matt Jacob

    If you go to the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open expecting to see golf’s biggest names, well, expect to be disappointed. Ever since the PGA Tour restructured its schedule several years ago, essentially relegating the Las Vegas stop to second-tier status, golf’s big shots have avoided our local tournament like you do your 3-wood on a blustery day.

    Brown Is the New Green

    By Brooke Edwards

    Transforming the sands of the Mojave into miles of evergreen grass has long been a point of pride for California’s High Desert communities, with seven golf courses serving a population of some 400,000. But lush fairways may soon go the way of the Hummer as efforts to conserve money and the environment are driving planners to embrace brown as the new green.

    Golf Faster!

    By Sean DeFrank

    You’ve seen that person on the golf course; in fact, you might be that person. The one who lines up each putt like it’s the 18th hole at Augusta. Or the guy who searches for a lost ball like it’s a priceless heirloom. In an attempt to save Las Vegans from five-hour rounds of 18 holes, Angel Park Golf Club is now offering Express Lane tee times on one of its two courses each Saturday morning to golfers who commit to finishing 18 holes within 3 hours and 45 minutes. Express Lane tee times will vary with the season, but they are now being offered from 7 to 7:28 a.m.

    Fore-ward Thinking

    By Brian Hurlburt

    Golf is a sport of eternal optimism. No matter how bad one swing, one hole, one round or even one year might be, there’s always the chance that maybe—just maybe—the next time around will be significantly better. And to that end, whether an avid player or a once-in-a-while hacker, here is an offering of what to look for on the Las Vegas golf scene in 2011—from the best new piece of equipment to which local pro to keep an eye on this year.

    Experiencing a Rebirth

    By Sean DeFrank

    This has been a year to remember for Charley Hoffman, although it didn’t exactly start out that way. The former UNLV golf star was plagued by a wrist injury to start 2010 and missed the cut in four of his first six PGA Tour events, at which point he took five weeks off to get healthy. Even through June, though, Hoffman’s best finish was a tie for 13th place in what was, at that point, a respectable but unremarkable season.

  • Fair Pay for Fairways

    By Brian Hurlburt

    There was a time not so long ago when Southern Nevadans were persona non grata at local golf courses. Securing a tee time in spring or fall was like getting a ticket to opening night of a show on the Strip: You either knew someone or paid an arm and a leg for the opportunity. But that’s not the case these days, and specials and good rates are offered year-round. Here are some good deals for hitting the links this fall.

  • Fashion Fore-ward

    Even from her earliest swings, Seema Sadekar never dressed in traditional golf attire. At 11, she attempted to play a round in cut-off jeans and a yellow tank top but was denied access to the course. Disappointed but still interested in the game, she learned to tolerate the boring polo shirts and khaki shorts her father made her wear.

  • Hot Deals for Summer Golf

    By Brian Hurlburt

    Here’s a little secret about playing golf in Las Vegas in the summer: It really isn’t that hot, especially if you tee off before 11 a.m. If you bring a cool towel, a hat and some water, and are done playing by 2 or 3 p.m., you can beat the scorching heat.
