While some of the top golfers in the world call Palm Beach County home now, there aren't too many that are truly local products. While many, like Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, have lived in the area for the majority of their lives, they have all moved here from somewhere else.

That's what makes European Tour star Brooks Koepka a true "hometown hero". Born and raised in Wellington and now living in Palm Beach Gardens, the 23 year old Koepka will get to compete in his hometown event for the first time in his career. A standout at Cardinal Newman and Florida State, Koepka served as a stadard-bearer at the Honda Classic for years during his junior golf days.

Not only will Koepka become the first Palm Beach County golf product ever to compete at the…

The local golf pair of Mike Weeks and Scott Wilson won the 11th annual Southern Golf Association's Southern States Four-Ball event this weekend at  the Jonathan's Landing Old Trail Course in Jupiter.

Ken Duke has had a life time of adversity to overcome to get to where he is today. Diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age, Duke had a 16-inch metal rod surgically attached to his spine at the age of 15. Despeite the disability, and the metal rod, Duke still played high school golf in his native Arkansas and even managed to turn pro in 1994. After bouncing around on mini tours around the world, he finally made it to the PGA tour in 2004 at the age of 35.

10 years later, the Palm City resident is now a PGA Tour winner after winning the Travelers Championship in 2013, his first PGA Tour win in his long career. In addition to the stability and Masters invite that the win came with, the Golf Writers Association of America also deemed Duke worthy of the…

While Tiger Woods won five times on the PGA Tour in 2013, bringing his total number of years winning at least five events to 10, he extended his majorless streak to 18 in a row.

Woods will have his eye on two important records in 2014. The Jupiter Island resident enters the year only three wins shy of Sam Snead's all time mark of 82 career PGA Tour wins and he will also look to win a major for the first time since 2008. He currently sits at 14, four behind Jack Nicklaus' record.

Woods has had a history of success at all four of this year's majors locations. He has won four times at Augusta National. He also has a victory at Valhalla, winning the 2000 PGA Championship and at Royal Liverpool, winning the 2006 Open Championship. The only major venue…
