Brooks Koepka was seven when Tiger Woods won his first career major at the 1997 Masters. This week, the Wellington native and now Palm Beach Gardens resident got to compete in the first major of his career and had a final round that he will never forget.

Thanks to a third round 73 by Tiger, Koepka got to do more than just meet his childhood idol on Sunday, he got to play a round with him too. Koepka and Woods met for the first time on the putting green before their round started, talking about Woods’ membership at Medalist among other things (Koepka is currently playing out of Bear Lakes but is looking for a new club).

Woods got the better of Koepka on the day with the Jupiter Island resident shooting an even round 70 to

It is the scenery and the lifestyle that bring people here.  Ask any longtime resident what it is that makes this Jupiter/Juno beach area and you will get many different answers.  Condominiums with direct Atlantic Ocean views, year around perfect weather, and a relaxed lifestyle are just the tip of the "sand-berg".

The perfect winter, natural beauty and recreational activities along the Jupiter/Juno beaches keep seasonal snowbirds flocking home in the winter.  Avoiding the winter chill, they come to walk their dogs on the beach, ride a beach cruiser, surf or paddleboard.  Welcomed by the locals, one seasonal resident says she and her husband exercise daily along the beach.  “We have been walking this beach for seven years and have met the most delightful…

Stacy Lewis won her first major as a professional in 2011 at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. It was the last time a female American golfer won a major on the LPGA tour. That was until Sunday, when Lewis won again, this time at the Women's British Open. 

Having to play 36-holes on Sunday due to the third round being postponed Saturday because of high winds, the Palm Beach Gardens resident and Medalist member finished birdie-birdie on the final two holes at St. Andrews to record a final round 72 and a two shot victory.

Lewis has proven over her career that she is very comfortable at the Old Course. When she last played there in 2008, she went 5-0 for the American team at the Curtis Cup (the women's equivalence of the

This weekend, Tiger Woods finally got win number 18. It wasn’t majors though (he is still stuck on 14), but rather World Golf Championship titles. Woods shot an even round 70 on Sunday at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational to win his fifth tournament of the year.

The win was Woods’ eighth career victory at Firestone Country Club, matching the record set by Sam Snead at the Greensboro Open and Tiger himself at Bay Hill, and was done in dominating fashion.

Woods started the week off with a first round 66 on Thursday, finishing the round two shots off the lead. That would be the last time he would trail. The Jupiter Island resident lapped the field with a 9-under 61 on Friday and flirted with a 59 for most of the afternoon.
