Las Vegas resident Alex Prugh making some noise on the PGA Tour

One of Las Vegas' newest residents, Alex Prugh, finished fifth in the recent Bob Hope Classic. The 25-year-old Prugh, a 2009 graduate of the Nationwide Tour where he wound up 16th on the money list, posted rounds of 64-66-65-70-67 and a five-round total of 28-under-par. That was two strokes behind winner Bill Haas. It was Haas' first victory of his PGA Tour career.

Prugh, who recently spent time preparing for the 2010 season at TPC Las Vegas and TPC Summerlin, is one of 30-plus PGA and LPGA players who have ties to Las Vegas. With names like Natalie Gulbis, Nick Watney, Kevin Na, Charley Hoffman, Rickie Fowler, Chris Riley and others teeing it up here on a regular basis, you never know who may show up on the first tee or be practicing next to you on the range.

Stay tuned for more updates on their 2010 exploits.

It's gotta be the shoes (and the great course)

The bottom line is simple: Golfers are always looking for the best deals around at the best courses.

There may not be a better one right now than at TPC Las Vegas. Book a tee time for Sunday through Thursday (Feb. 1 through the end of May) for $199 and you'll receive a free pair of Adidas golf shoes (Retail value $90). It's that simple.

"It's a promotion that adds value to the course," said Todd Hajduk, head golf professional. "With the shoes, it's a little bit of a carrot to add value. It's a win-win situation."

And the shoes are in stock at the course so players are able to wear them the day - or days - they play.

You'll not only play a PGA Tour-quality course, you'll have the chance to dress like a pro.
