Nevada State Match Play Brings Ryder Cup Feel to Nevada Golf

There’s just something special about a match play tournament. It is one on one. Golfer vs. golfer.

Two players, looking each other in the eye and staring down each other hole after hole in hopes of winning one of the state’s most prestigious championships, the Nevada State Match Play tournament.

Some of the top golfers in Nevada history have claimed the title over years including David Nelson, also one of the top players in Northern Nevada history. Nelson has claimed the Nevada State Mid-Amateur championship in addition to competing in multiple national USGA tournaments.

Other notable champions are Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame members Brady Exber and Doug Pool in addition to UNLV golfers Zane Thomas and AJ McInerney. Also, Southern Nevada golfer Matt Edwards is a two-time champion of the tournament as is Carlos Concha, former member of the University of Nevada Wolfpack golf team.
