How UNLV Ranks for Total PGA TOUR Success
UNLV ranks at the top of the Rivals Cup rankings of schools with PGA TOUR pros. As of April 2015, UNLV ranked second overall when it comes to which college golf teams are producing the best professional golfers across the professional golf tours.
And in one of the best headlines ever about UNLV Men’s Golf, the Atlanta Journal Constitution once famously wrote: “Hail, hail the puttin’ Rebels—UNLV sets the standard for churning out quality Tour pros.”
The article in one of the largest newspapers in America was based on how Rebel alumni did on the PGA TOUR, and in that year (2007), UNLV was ranked number one, ahead of such schools as Arizona State, Florida and Oklahoma State.
The Rivals Cup is the only competition that ranks colleges and conferences according to how their alumni perform in professional sports leagues. They provide irrefutable statistics and data that show which colleges are having the greatest impact on professional sports across all the major leagues.
And UNLV Men’s Golf is always in the top four over the last five seasons.
