Force yourself to “eat clean” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with nothing but plain chicken, brown rice, broccoli and oatmeal and it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll eventually feel bored and frustrated with your diet, which could very easily cause you to fall off track or even quit altogether.

The distinguished "Top 100 Courses" list, released annually by Golf Digest, recently revealed that Juno Beach's Seminole was ranked as the 34th best golf course in the world. The world was able to see the unqiue beauty and distinct dynamic of Seminole this past summer during a Covid-19 relief match featuring Palm Beach County residents Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson.

Collin Morikawa won the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco on Sunday after an amazing display of ball striking and dropping big putt time and time again. However his shining moment came on the 16th tee on Sunday afternoon as he drove the driveable par 4, which many of the players in the field did over the week, but none better than Morrikawa, who bent a perfect cut around an over-hanging tree to around 10 feet for the go-ahead eagle putt.

Morikawa sank the putt and went on to win his first major, joining Palm Beach County residents Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Rory McIlroy as the only players to win the PGA Championship at 23. You may not be able to swing it just like the young phenom, but you can swing the same clubs, here’s the
