Tiger Woods, Jupiter Island resident, visits a local school

Jupiter Island has long been home to some of the biggest, if not the most quiet, names in the country.  The list of notables that call the Island home will fill the social register anywhere.  No perhaps no better known than Tiger Woods.  Woods capped a week when he won his first tournament in more than two years by checking in on another success: the Tiger Woods Learning Center at Murray Middle School.

Woods made an unpublicized visit to the program visiting with students, teachers and administrators and taking part in a forensics class as sixth- and seventh-graders in the program demonstrated fingerprinting to an eighth-grade science class.

"At first none of the students knew who he was," Principal Kit Weir said, "and then one kid recognized him and shouted, 'That's Tiger Woods!' Then they all started screaming."

Tiger bought the old Chuck Curcio mansion on Jupiter Island, then 4 other surrounding parcels, moved trees around and built a massive compound complete with golf hole for practicing.  He also assembled a couple of large properties in Jupiter and built another massive, walled compound for his mom.
