North Palm Beach resident Clancy Waugh shot an 8-under par 64 on Monday at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart to earn Medalist honors and advance out of the Local U.S. Open Qualifier.

The Benjamin High School grad and current Wake Forest golfer earned himself a trip to the June 8th 36 hole Sectional Qualifier at the Bear's Club in Jupiter as the low medalist.

For Waugh, it's a little bit of redemption after a less than stellar sophomore season with the Demon Deacons. After being named Freshman Athlete of the Year and becoming only the 11th Wake Forrest golfer in win a tournament last year, in 2015, Waugh had finished no better than 40th and just a week ago missed qualifying for NCAA regionals by one shot.

Many that live in Jupiter, Florida are acquainted with the story of Henry Flagler’s railroad which converted to the Florida East Coast Railroad. The train depot served the public well for many years since the year of 1915!

The 22-by-53 foot historic train depot is now situated at Sawfish Bay Park in Jupiter with very close proximity to its original location and was famous for a stopping point throughout the early days of Flagler’s railroad. The proposal is to turn the 1915 Henry Flagler train depot into a museum and to be rented by civic groups, all this was endorsed on Tuesday by the Town Council. While the depot was used to load and unload passengers and freight, the single-story structure is inspiring and keeping history of this site is very important…

Golf.com conducted a survey with Tour pros on the PGA, Champions, and LPGA Tours. They provided them with anonymity and asked them some hard hitting questions. What we got was 100% honesty on everything from who will win more majors between Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy to would golfers vote for Hillary Clinton in the next Presidential election if she lowered taxes. Here are some of the highlights from the survey.

PGA Tour pros were asked "Who is more likely to win 19 majors: Tiger or Rory?" The Jupiter Island resident was given the upper hand on that one with 76% of the Tour pros surveyed thought Tiger would get to 19 first. Considering that Tiger currently has 14, while Rory only has four, I would tend to agree with them there.

53% of Tour pros

For so many years, we all would have had better luck getting into Fort Knox then getting into Tiger Woods' mind and finding out what he really was thinking. A human PR machine, Woods was so calculated in everything he ever said to the media you would have thought that he practiced the answers before each media session.

Over the past few years, Woods has opened up a little more. 2015 specifically has been the most transparent I think any of us that have followed his career has ever seen him. He opened up early in 2015 and shared his struggles with his new swing patterns and what his plans were with new "swing consultant" Chris Como. Then, when he announced he was taking a leave to get his game fixed, he was open

It is a little rainy today but if local south Floridians are lucky and the clouds cooperate we will be able to observe a beautiful meteor shower tonight. The Eta Aquarid meteor shower will peak before dawn on Wednesday morning. Experts are also predicting that the meteors will be visible Thursday morning as well. 

You will be able to see ten to twenty meteors per hour under the dark Floridian skies. However, it might be slightly less because the moon just hit its full phase on Monday.
