JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Rory McIlroy took home the Deutsche Bank Championship trophy after four days of play in Norton, Mass., and, in the process, rose to No. 1 in the FedExCup standings.
McIlroy, a member of the prestigious Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla., finished at 20 under par with 67 in the last round. The 23-year-old is the world’s No. 1 golfer and his latest victory made him one of two players who have won three times on the 2012 Tour. The other player is Tiger Woods.
Woods, who owns one of most elaborate homes on Jupiter Island – it includes a three-hole golf course – came in third place, at 18 under par with a final-round score of 66. Woods, 36, is third in the FedExCup standings.
Coming in fourth place is another member of The Bear’s Club: Dustin Johnson. Johnson, 28, tied Phil Mickelson for fourth place, shooting a 14 under par and a final-round score of 70.
The Bear’s Club offers prestigious and secluded Jupiter homes for sale that perch on one of the most well-maintained golf courses in the country. The residences are filled with modern amenities, while the neighborhoods retain the charm of days gone by.
A great location surrounds The Bear’s Club homes for sale, and fine dining, world-class shopping and the main arteries of Interstate 95 and Florida’s Turnpike all are a short distance from the front entrance.
Luke Donald, 34, is another member of The Bear’s Club who participated in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Donald came in 26th place with a five-under-par finale and a score of 70 in the final round. He tied several players, including Tom Gillis and Ernie Els, who live in Jupiter.
Gillis, 44, and Els, 42, each shot a five under and finished out their last rounds with a score of 70. Sharing the 26th-place-tie were Pat Perez, Bo Van Pelt, William McGirt, Vijay Singh, David Hearn and Charley Hoffman.
Fan favorite and fellow Jupiter resident Rickie Fowler tied Graeme McDowell and Brian Harman for 74th place. Fowler, 23, shot a final-round score of 76 and came into the clubhouse at seven over par.
A little farther up the leaderboard, Keegan Bradley, who has a piece of a real estate in Jupiter, tied Seung-You Noh, Lee Westwood, Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk for 13th place. Bradley, 26, shot an eight under par and finished the day at 69.
