New home for golf Hall, Jaguars NFL draft, more

When PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan was non-committal in his public address at The Players Championship to keeping the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine beyond 2023, it sent an unmistakable message that its days there could be numbered. 

If the WGHOF moves after a quarter century in St. John’s County, one logical destination could be a place that deserves consideration as the golf capital of the world – Palm Beach County. 

Just Jupiter alone is home to five of the world’s top-10 golfers — Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa — as well as four-time major champion Brooks Koepka. Oh, yeah, and Jupiter Island is where the 757th-ranked player in the world, Tiger Woods, has a residence. 

Besides 12 of the world’s top 50 players living in Palm Beach County, seven retired golfers or Champions Tour players — Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Raymond Floyd, Ernie Els, Nick Price, Bernhard Langer and Greg Norman – with 42 combined majors between them also reside there.
