Hardly a week goes by on the PGA Tour without a former UNLV Rebel golfer showing up on the leaderboard of a PGA Tour event. Former Rebels have won majors (Adam Scott at the 2013 Masters) and clinched Ryder Cup victories for their home country (Ryan Moore at the 2016 Ryder Cup for the United States) and combined to win dozens of professional tournaments.

In a Golf Channel statistic from 2016, UNLV Rebels alumni had more wins on the PGA Tour than any other program over the previous few years.
