Rain wreaked havoc on the opening day of the week long festivities associated with the Honda Classic at PGA National yesterday.

“We want to make sure the golf course stays in the best condition as we work toward Thursday,” tournament director Ed McEnroe told The Palm Beach Post. “We don’t want it to become too sloppy out there and potentially affect the golf course come competition time.

Rain could affect more than just yesterday’s event. More rain is expected on Tuesday afternoon, when the pros are expected to get their first of two practice

Living near the beach is the best therapy.  As the sun streams in the floor to ceiling panes of the oceanside condominium, and a smile graces the face of our guests, it dawns on me, the ocean view is great therapy.  

Many visitors frequent Jupiter and the Singer Island areas looking to get a piece of the restorative beach.  There is a lot of research indicating what sounds humans find stress inducing and obnoxious and what sounds are most pleasing.   It turns out the most pleasurable sounds have predictable wave patterns, soft volumes, and harmonic frequencies at regular intervals. Traffic and airplane noise cause the body to release higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, which can lead to ulcers and heart disease.  Sounds from the ocean, by

    Round one was pushed back a day due to a freak snow storm and it didn’t get much better for some of the top local golfers after play resumed on Thursday.

    After Wednesday’s weather transformed Dove Mountain from a golf course to a winter wonderland full of snow and ice, golfers returned Thursday to either finish or start their first round matchups in the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship. Just like they did the day before, they waited around for hours on Thursday as they waited for conditions to become favorable enough to play as well as course staff to finish shoveling snow off of most of the fairways and greens. It ended up being a one-and-done day for 32 golfers, several of which are some of the top golfers in the world. Here is a recap from day one,…
