The Bear’s Club, one of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities’ premier neighborhoods, saw three of its members compete in the high-stakes PGA Tour event The Barclays.

The Bear’s Club offers a signature, Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that flows through an immaculate setting filled with estates, villas, cottages and single-family homes for sale in Jupiter. Nicklaus and his wife Barbara conceived the community in the 1990s and saw their vision come to life when the property opened in 1999, offering a gold standard of amenities paired with some of most valuable Jupiter real estate on the market.

Johnson, 28, tied Sergio Garcia for third place, and Donald, 34, tied Bud Cauley, Bubba Watson, David Hearn, Tom Gillis, William McGirt, Tim Clark, Bob Estes and Kevin Stadler. Gillis, 44, another PGA Tour pro who calls Jupiter home, shot a three-under-par 72 in the final round.

McIlroy, 23, tied another celebrity golfer from Jupiter -- Rickie Fowler -- and in doing so, ended up at No. 4 on the 2012 FedExCup standings ranking. Fowler, 23, shot a one-under 71 to finish out the tournament. Both South Florida players shared the position with Jason Day, Bo Van Pelt, Scott Stallings, Ricky Barnes, Carl Pettersson, Roberto Castro, Ryan Palmer, Harris English, Charl Schwartzel and Ryan Moore.

The golfer who needs no introduction and lives in one of the most recognizable Jupiter Island homes came in 38th place in The Barclays and holds the No. 3 spot on the FedExCup ranking. Tiger Woods, 36, shot a one-over-par 76 in the final round and tied Zach Johnson, Jimmy Walker, Pat Perez, Tommy Gainey, Matt Kuchar, Greg Owen and Phil Mickelson.

Ernie Els, who also lives in Jupiter, placed 54th with a three-over par. Els, 42, shot a 75 in the last round to tie Charles Howell III, Henrik Stenson, Sean O’Hair, John Rollins, Brian Gay, Troy Kelly and Steve Stricker.
