Vegas is a tough city for anything longer than 72 hours. Professional golfer Ryan Moore and wife Nichole (Nickie) Olson are two individuals who managed to survive and escape the city of sin.
I’ve often wondered what type of person could handle going to school at UNLV. With all the temptations that are a mere few miles down the road how could you even focus on class? Yes it has to be tough to focus if you went to a southern school with great weather but as anyone whose gone to Vegas can attest, it’s just a whole different league out there. Top that off by being an athlete while attending UNLV and well, you my friend u are a stronger person than I am if you graduate.
No surprise that Ryan and Nickie met at UNLV. Nickie herself is an accomplished athlete having played on the UNLV soccer team for four years. While Ryan isn’t a household name on the PGA Tour his style on and off the course certainly is a reason he has gotten a lot of recognition. Often seen playing in a tie and a sweater vest (which can’t be comfortable) Ryan’s course attire has made more headlines than his golf game so far. Nickie and Ryan married in 2011 and wasted no time in having their first son Tucker in October of 2012. Ryan actually won the Justin Timberlake golf tournament two weeks before Nickie delivered Tucker. Not getting enough of Vegas during college the couple still make their home in Vegas but Nickie is on the road quite a bit to watch Ryan play.
