PGA Tour: Pros Call the Jupiter Area Home

PGA Tour Residents
I hate to sound like the Chamber of Commerce but I believe anyone who can live in Jupiter…does! Here’s a short list of the PGA Tour pros who call this area home.
Up on Jupiter Island, live Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Nick Price. Years ago, Lee Trevino had a big estate there and one day, while visiting the house next door, I overheard him working in his garage on his golf clubs and chatting with his caddie, Herman Mitchell. It’s always interesting to be a “fly on the wall” and see the famous living just like the rest of us.
Jesper Parnevik used to live in Admirals Cove.
One day while driving through AC, I saw him being filmed hitting balls across the water on a short par 3. I don’t know what they were filming, but he sure made it look effortless. In addition to his golf skills, he is famous for introducing Tiger to his (then future) wife, Elin. The following year while at the Palm Beach Boat Show we were walking behind him on the docks and later saw Ian Baker-Finch near the sailboats. Finch lived in Old Palm until recently when he sold his house.
In Tequesta, Mark Calcavecchia, Steve Marino, Keegan Bradley and Camilo Villegas all own properties along the Loxahatchee River
. Across the River, Rickie Fowler bought a home and when word got out of his new address the traffic increased to the point that the neighborhood had to install gates.
UPDATE: He has since sold that house and moved into a $12 mansion on Pennock Point.
Briny Baird lives in nearby Palm City and Will McKenzie calls Jupiter home as well. And Jack Nicklaus lives in North Palm Beach.
