Tiger Woods 15 Mile Commute to Work From Jupiter Island Home

February 24th, 2012

Tiger’s daily routine begins with a left turn out of his Jupiter Island home and a left turn onto Bridge Road, a beautifully maintained street with a canopy of Banyan trees totally covering both the sides and sky.

From there he heads north on US 1 to Greg Norman’s Medalist Golf Club where he practices (if he’s not practicing at his home course) and then plays. A typical day is 9 hours honing his game.

When he cuts his time short, or arrives late, Tigers practices his short game at home on his exqistively maintained short game practice area in his own backyard facing the Intercoastal.

His 15.1 mile treck to PGA National Championship Course will have him traveling south on US 1 to Indiantown Road and south on the Turnpike to PGA Blvd. From there he’s just a mile from the players tent.

The Jack Nicklaus Championship Course at PGA National is a new event for Tiger at the Honda Classic and will prove to be a real test of his readiness to return to prime time and his preparation for this years Masters. One of the most difficult tracks in the past, especially if the wind blows, last years winning score was just 5 under. In the past few years, Tiger has rarely been seen in the Jupiter-Palm Beach Gardens area. Regardless of how he finishes, it’s nice to see Tiger finally play in his new hometown.

The Famous ‘Bear Trap’

The weakness in Tiger’s game appears to be with his short stick. Once one of the greatest putters of all time, the past three years has shown the decline of that part of his game the most. In his last tournament, he missed 5 short putts in the final round and looked more like your 20 handicapper from 4 feet than the formally invincible player of the past.

His dominant past is way behind him, his stubbornness not to go back to his great teacher Butch Harmon shows a tail tale character flaw, and his isolation from the world makes him a sympathatecti figure.

Is the golf world rooting for or against Tiger? Great question, maybe 50/50 but time will tell. Personally, the golf world would love to see him dominant again.

11751 Elina Court | Old Palm

April 16th, 2011

In most minds, Palm Beach’s architecture is inextricably connected to Addison Mizner, who began designing there around the end of the First World War. By mixing sources from Moorish Spain, Renaissance Italy and 18th Century France, he created a style that was all his own.

For this house, both the architect and clients looked not so much to Mizner’s exuberant houses as to the more restrained work of Maurice Fatio, the Swiss-born American architect who designed numerous local houses in the 1920s and 1930s for such clients as Harold S. Vanderbilt and Joseph E. Widener.

The owners wanted it to be elegant but not opulent, with rooms that have both warmth and grand proportions. As is typical of Palm Beach houses, there are cast stone columns, balustrades and urns. They wanted to make sure they respected both authenticity and good design.

The Elina House was formerly owned by avid art collectors with fabulous taste. As you enter the two wooden entry doors, one glance to the left reveals their taste is art. This replica of  Charles Bell’s 16 Candles, renamed ‘Marbles’, is the prized possession of the father of ‘photo-realist art’, Louis Meisel.

The furnishings are done by an award-winning interior designer. They are all brand new and at retail would run in excess of $200,000. High-end manufacturers such as Hickory, Century by Larry Laslo, Swain, and Kravet adorn the interiors, and Brown Jordon the outdoor, pool and entertainment areas.

Entering the living room, one is immediately drawn to a wonderful clock sitting on the stone-clad fireplace. As your eyes move forward, the exquisite tropical landscaping and the pool and water features in the rear of the home become apparent. These water features cost the owners in excess of $150,000 when the home was built in 2006. One notices the perfect balance the furnishings add to this open floorplan.

The whimsical nature of the owners is evident in their library with matching desks, his with his passion for his mythical mistress, ‘Wonder Woman’, and her with her perfect husband, ‘The Man of Steel, Superman’.

Continuing into the master bedroom, overlooking the tropical pool and water features, the owner’s whimsical taste turns romantic, with a print of movie econ Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol directly above the headboard of this 4-poster bed. The elegantly-appointed marble master bathroom and closets make this master suite perfect.

As one exits the rear onto the loggia, you can see how grand the outdoor area truly is. The large pool, lounge areas, and rear water features truly make this a spectacular family/entertainment area.

Overall, this single-story Elina house has a footprint of 4,888 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 5½ baths. There is a covered loggia area immediately off of the family room, French doors throughout, impact glass, 3-car garage and a circular paver drive. All of the living spaces have Saturnia marble and each bath has both marble floors and countertops. The kitchen has granite countertops and a world of space for the gourmet chef of the house. There is an exterior kitchen as well for outdoor BBQs.

Tiger’s Yacht May Be On The Block! | Divorce Is Expensive!

March 30th, 2011

The family and celebrity lifestyle of Tiger Woods continues to make news here in north Palm Beach County. The real estate market on Jupiter Island was given an economic shock treatment when Tiger bought the estate of the tire magnate Chuck Curcio, and several surrounding properties, then demolished the main home and combined the properties to make one large compound complete with practice facility for his ailing golf game.

Then he built a mansion/compound for his mom over in Jupiter, giving that area’s construction industry another shot in the arm. Pictures of this house are floating around the Internet.

Next, the local real estate market was buzzing when the ex-Mrs. TW was checking out condo penthouses on Jupiter Island, just a short drive from his above-mentioned compound. The unit she was looking at had a rooftop patio & bar and one of the most spectacular views up the Island. Although this was an incredible place, last week we learned she purchased an oceanfront mansion in Seminole Landing in North Palm Beach for a reported $12.2 million. Speculation arose about why Seminole Landing? My theory is that it is very private and protected and the Tiger cubs and mom can go out on the beach and be beyond the reach of even the longest telephoto lens.

Today, word is out that Tiger is shopping for a broker for his 155-ft yacht ‘Privacy’, which has been moored in North Palm since his domestic troubles started. The asking price will be a reported $25 million. That’ll help towards the reputed $100 million he has to pay Elin. Recently, the yacht was moved to Ft. Lauderdale to undergo painting on the deck and hull. I have walked next to this yacht and can tell you the finish is gleaming!

All things considered, Tiger and his miscellaneous endeavors are still good for business, whether that is golf, construction, yacht brokerage, or divorce attorneys.
