Seven months after it was filmed, golf fans all over found out Monday night who won Golf Channel's Big Break The Palm Beaches.

The latest edition, which was held on the Champion Course at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens and home to the Honda Classic, was won by Richy Werenski. Werenski defeated Justin Martinson 2-and-1 in the final match play competition to determine the winner.

The show, which puts 12 golfers through various competitions and skills challenges until there is only one golfer left, finished filming back in September but the results were kept under wraps until Monday's finale.

On January 23rd, and during the second round of the Humana Challenge, Freddie Jacobson three-putted the 16th hole. Since then, the Patriots have won another Super Bowl, Tiger Woods came back, left, and then came back again, oh and Jacobson hasn't had another three-putt.

In the second round of this past week's RBC Heritage, the Hobe Sound resident broke Luke Donald's record of 483 consecutive holes without a three putt. He didn't stop there though. He went all four rounds without a three putt and heading into his next event his total is at 524. Jacobson is first in three-putt avoidance at .65 percent (the tour average this season is three percent) and he's third in strokes gained/putting.

Jacobson will look to extend his record this week when he…

21 year old Jordan Spieth won the Masters this past weekend to earn his first major championship. In the process, he left golf staples such at Tiger Woods, Rory Mcllroy, and Phil Mickelson in his dust on Sunday, winning by four shots. It was a changing of the guard you could say.

One thing that stayed constant though, were the high viewership numbers for the West Palm Beach market. West Palm Beach, traditionally a strong marking for golf television viewership, ranked fifth nationally.

Overall, CBS saw some of its best viewership numbers for the Masters in several years. Saturday's viewership was up 48% over last year, while Sunday saw a 23% increase over 2014, when Bubba Watson cruised to an easy win on the back nine over Spieth.

This year's…

Tiger Woods made his return to competitive golf this past week at the Masters. It was the first time since he competed in a PGA Tour event since his first round withdraw at the Farmers Insurance Open in early February.

Despite many experts predicting that he wouldn't even make the cut, Woods not only made the cut, he was in the third to last pairing of the day in the final round on Sunday.

Woods ended up finishing in a tie for 17th at 5-under after rounds of 73-69-69-73. While the Jupiter Island resident was able to complete all four rounds and for the most part look like the Tiger of old, it came at a cost.

For golfers, a hole-in-one is kind of the holy grail of the sport. It's something we all achieve for but is almost impossible to actually achieve.

Don't tell that to Jack Nicklaus.

Competing in the annual Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday with playing partners Gary Player and Ben Crenshaw, who filled in for the still injured Arnold Palmer, the North Palm Beach resident recorded a hole-in-one on the fourth hole after hitting his shot 15 feet past the hole and watching it spin back and in the cup.

Making it even more special was the fact that it was the first time Nicklaus ever recorded an ace at Augusta National in any facet. Before yesterday he had never done it in a recreational, practice, or tournament round.
