Las Vegas' Nick Watney Looks to Feed PGA Tour Addiction

Las Vegas, Nevada (July 4, 2011)--The headline of this article sounds bad and like Las Vegas Golf Region resident Nick Watney will be headed to rehab soon. But the 'addiction' referred to in the header is a good thing and one that he wants to get worse.

Longtime Tiger Woods Friend Chris Riley Near Lead at PGA Tour AT&T National

Las Vegas, Nevada (July 2, 2011) UPDATE 6 PM PST--Chris Riley, who is near the lead at the AT&T National, is considered a Las Vegas golfer because he played four years at UNLV plus he lived here for several years folllowing his college career. But he grew up the San Diego area, and because of his So. Cal. roots, he got to know Tiger Woods during his younger days plus continued to be friends as they both played the PGA Tour. So it is somewhat fitting that since Tiger isn't playing in his own tournament, a longtime friend has the potential to win the thing. Riley fired a third-round 75.--By Brian Hurlburt

Chris Riley Can't Follow Up Stellar Round One Effort at Memorial

Las Vegas, Nevada (June 4, 2011)--Chris Riley has been known as one of the best putters on the PGA Tour, but over the last few years some of the magic has diminished.
