Inside Golf World Podcast: The Florida Swing and its proximity to home

By Ryan Herrington

Nice weather, no state income tax and the overall laid-back feel make it a logical place for golfers such as Keegan Bradley (right) to call home.

In particular, the 30-mile stretch along the southeast coast in and around Jupiter, Fla., has become a magnet for players of all ages, tours and places on the World Ranking.

Golf World senior writer Tim Rosaforte is intimately familiar with the scene, having lived there since the 1980s.

"Golf's Hot Spot," our March 4 cover story, is Rosaforte's personal look at why the area has become increasingly popular among pro golfers.

In this week's Inside Golf World podcast, Rosaforte provides more details on the player migration to Jupiter and explains how clubs such as Old Palm, The Bear's Club, Medalist GC and The Dye Preserve have welcomed them with open arms.
