Terrific NATIONAL recognition for UNLV women's golf coach Amy Bush-Herzer as she earns the Kim Evans Award
The award honors a Class A PGA Professional whose support of the game through teaching, coaching and involvement in the community has helped ensure the continued growth of golf, and who represents the finest qualities the sport has to offer.
"Gratitude is the first thing I thought about after finding out about the award," Bush-Herzer said. "I am thankful for Las Vegas, the community, and the golf professionals for trusting me and allowing me to be a part of the community for decades."
Dice la palabra de DIOS) Que todo loque sus ojos contemplan en la tierra 🌎 No se compara con loque nuestro padre celestial nos tiene para nosotros sus hijos) calles de oro y mar de cristal. Esto de la tierra es pasajero. Todo loque ustedes contemplan con sus ojos va a ser destruido todo esto será quemado) Todo esto desaparece. Poreso es necesario que él hombre se arrepienta de sus pecados y venga al SEÑOR JESUCRISTO y le entregue su corazón ♥️ Porque él hombre tiene el corazón 💔 vacío lejos de DIOS. En el corazón del hombre lejos de DIOS) está lleno de tristeza de dolor y miedos. Pero ÉL SEÑOR JESUCRISTO te llene tu corazón de amor de paz de gozo) La vida del hombre es diferente totalmente 💯. Bendiciones para cada uno de ustedes .
They are the backbone of golf ... here's another profile of a local Vegas superintendent... Scott Sutton from The Club at Sunrise
“In February of 2022, it will be 42 years in the industry and I wouldn’t trade any of them … it’s been the best career I could ever hope for,” Sutton says, as his voice breaks with emotion and he fights back tears. “I love what I do. I have built seven golf courses in Las Vegas as a construction superintendent, I worked for Jim Colbert for 16 years and it’s been a wonderful life.”
And check out the innovative grass he is using ...

My favorite part of Yana Wilson winning our #ANNIKAInvUSA is this video from 2018. She participated in our @ANNIKA_Fdn “Share my Passion” Girls Golf Clinic at @SHighlandsGC and @ANNIKA59 surprised her with her invite to the @DriveChipPutt finals. @HiltonGrandVac @LPGA #HGVLPGA
Taylor Montgomery narrowly missed his PGA Tour card TWICE by a single spot ... but his recent second straight Nevada Open win has raised his spirits a bit ... and the $31,350 check.
“Finishing 26th twice has to be some kind of record, right?” Montgomery said with a chuckle when asked about finishing 26th on both the Korn Ferry Tour points and finals list when a top 25 in either would have earned his PGA Tour card. “I am trying not to think about it anymore and just go forward the best I can. After like the first couple of days, all you think about is, ‘well, if I did this, if I did that.’ I'd say anybody inside the top 30 if they did just a few things here or there or caught a break, they would have qualified. And they're probably thinking the same thing.”
As for winning another Nevada Open?
“It is like déjà vu and feels a lot like last year, which is weird, because you don't have that too many times in golf,” Montgomery said. “It's always nice to get a win. I would say my play was very sporadic, but I got the job done. I hit a lot of really good shots and then I felt like I hit a lot of like horrific shots. I've been working on a few things with my coach (John Sinclair of Dallas), and it all hasn’t together yet. Sometimes I do things correctly and then other times I don’t. I am not used to the feeling, and you can see a huge difference when I actually make the correct swing and when I don't.”...
