2 weeks ago, I ran into John Maxwell, the famous leadership guru and his son. A couple of years ago at the Palm Beach Boat Show, I saw Ian Baker-Finch and then was walking behind Jasper Parnevik on the docks. Celine Dion was giving birth at St. Mary's Hospital at the same time I was visiting my mom there.
When I posted a picture of Tiger Woods new compound on Jupiter Island, this blog got thousands of visits. I think the interest level went up when Elin beat out the windows of his car. She is now looking at condo penthouses on Jupiter Island.
I used to see Jackie Nicklaus around frequently and last week I ran into Gary Nicklaus at The Bear's Club where they were holding a Member/Member Golf Tournament meeting. All the Nicklaus boys look just like Jack.
I was swimming near the Jupiter Lighthouse one day when Greg Norman's yacht "Aussie Rules" came back in from fishing. And, I used to run into Olivia Newton-John's husband all the time.
Maybe the most fun was being next door to Lee Trevino as he worked on his golf clubs in his garage and chatted "off the record" with his caddie about the inner workings of the PGA Tour. I listened as he and Herman talked golf and people and events.
So it is no surprise to find the Rickie Fowler is moving to the area. He will join other PGA players here like Norman, Nick Price, Steve Marino and of course, Tiger.
Rickie bought this house on the Loxahatchee River in north Jupiter. I had lunch with the listing agent yesterday. Earlier in the morning, I was talking to the agent who sold his personal house to Steve Marino, also right on the river.
