Windermere, FL (Sports Network) - Ian Poulter's birdie during the first
playoff hole gave Albany the victory over Lake Nona at the Tavistock Cup.
Albany and Lake Nona, which had won the last four Tavistock Cups, both
finished Tuesday's round with a cumulative score of 7-over par.
Due to the finish of the Arnold Palmer Invitational being delayed until
Monday, the normally two-round tournament was shortened to just an 18-hole
individual stroke play format on Tuesday.
Sixteen of the 24 players at the event took part in a better ball stroke
format round on Monday that did not count towards the total results.
Poulter battled the wind to lead Albany with an even-par 72, while Tiger Woods
and Tim Clark each carded 1-over 71s and Justin Rose finished with a 5-over
Graeme McDowell was one of just two players to break par with a 1-under 70 to
pace Lake Nona. Ross Fisher followed with an even-par 72, Henrik Stenson
carded a 2-over 74 and Peter Hanson struggled to a 6-over.
Primland and tournament host Isleworth finished in a tie for third place with
a cumulative score of 8-over. Primland's Webb Simpson had the best round of
the day with a 2-under 70.
Oak Tree National finished in fifth at 12-over and Queenwood ended in sixth at
After Woods failed to convert a lengthy birdie putt at the last that would
have potentially won the tournament for Albany, two players from each team
were selected to replay the 18th hole with a best ball format for the playoff.
Woods and Poulter represented Albany, while McDowell and Stenson were chosen
for Lake Nova.
Poulter then hit his approach within five feet of the pin and converted the
winning putt as McDowell failed to scramble out of a set of trees following
his drive and Stenson could not roll in his long birdie putt.
