Tiger Woods tees off at the 2011 Tavistock Cup
The two day Tavistock Cup is now over. Fun to watch some of the world’s best play competitive golf on a Monday and Tuesday.
Team Lake Nona has won with a score of -43, 16 shots ahead of 2nd place team Albany.
Team Lake Nona -43 (Ross Fisher, Retief Goosen, Peter Hanson, Graeme McDowell, Henrik Stenson, Oliver Wilson)
Team Albany -27 (Tim Clark, Ernie Els, Trevor Immelman, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose, Tiger Woods)
Team Isleworth -25 (Robert Allenby, Stuart Appleby, Brian Davis, J.B. Holmes, Sean O’Hair, Lee Janzen)

Individual “Payne Stewart Salver Award”
Oliver Wilson wins the individual event within the event, called the Payne Stewart Salver Award with a score of -7. Wilson’s scorecard makes it look like he was playing an executive course with eight 3’s and a 2. He finished with four 3’s in a row.

Golf scribes, Tiger Woods fans and Tiger Woods haters are all excited now. Tiger has confirmed that he’ll play in the WGC Championship at Doral next week.
How do you think Tiger will finish? Or perhaps I should ask first if you think Tiger will make the cut?
Before you haters write Tiger off, consider that he has won this event six times…
Justin Rose missed a birdie to win the match but Zach Johnson still had to make a par putt from about 10 feet to extend the match to the 18th hole. No go. Justin Rose beats Zack and my final picks total is 22/32.
Justin Rose is still 1up, both players are in the fairway at the par-4 17th.
The only match left is Zach Johnson vs Justin Rose. My pick is Zach and if he wins I’ll be 23/32.
The match is currently through 15 holes and Justin Rose is 1up. Go Zach!
Tiger’s former coach Hank Haney tweets this:
“For all the talk of Tiger’s poor driving the last 6 years I have never seen him drive it out of play with a match or tournament on the line.”
I tweet this back to Hank:
Wasn’t that a 3-metal too, to keep it in play?
Hank tweets back to me:
@HOGGOLFBLOG it was a 3 wood but when u hit it 285 it isn’t automatic at all
