JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Tiger Woods, of Jupiter Island, emerged victorious at the Farmers Insurance Open in La Jolla, Calif., winning with a 14-under-par score of 274. Woods, now in fourth place in the FedExCup Championship, dominated the fog-delayed tournament at Torrey Pines, a course on which the celebrity golfer has won eight times. It marked his 75th PGA Tour victory.
Even though the Farmers Insurance Open unfolded on the other side of the country, it drew a lot of eyes on South Florida – and specifically on northern Palm Beach County – where dozens of professional Tour golfers reside. Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, which sells luxury real estate in Jupiter and other municipalities in the area, specializes in homes on private golf-course communities where many pros are members.
Six other players who finished the tournament after five days of teeing off also live in northern Palm Beach County. They include Rickie Fowler, James Driscoll, Tom Gillis and Luke List, all of whom have homes in Jupiter, and Steve Marino and Hank Kuehne, of Palm Beach Gardens.
Fowler, age 24, tied for sixth place with Robert Garrigus and Aaron Baddeley, and ended with an eight-under-par score of 280. Marino, age 32, tied for 15th place with Hunter Mahan, Brendon de Jonge, Tad Ridings, Erik Compton and Casey Wittenberg. He entered the clubhouse with a six-under-par score of 282.
Kuehne, who is 37 years old, tied for 51st place with Dustin Johnson, Justin Bolli, Greg Owen, Jim Herman, Driscoll, Ben Curtis, Phil Mickelson and Eric Meierdierks. Even with par, his final score was 288. Driscoll, 35, mirrored Kuehne’s score.
Gillis, 44, tied for 60th place with Michael Letzig, John Huh, Jeff Overton, Trevor Immelman, Martin Laird, Matt Every and Doug LaBelle II, finishing the tournament at one over par, with a final score of 289. List, 28, tied for 68th place with Mike Weir, Bryce Molder, Robert Karlsson, and Daniel Summerhays at two over par, with a final score of 290.
