Team Lake Nona won the Tavistock Cup after the singles stoke play on the second day. The Payne Stewart Salver Award was shared by five players, all finishing with a total -5 under par. They were Ernie Els, Team Albany; Robert Allenby, Team Isleworth; Retief Goosen and Ross Fisher,Team Lake Nona and Thomas Bjorn from Team Queenwood. Lake Nona’s total team score was -41 under par, Team Isleworth chased them hard but finished two shots adrift on -39. Team Queenwood improved to third place at -31, leaving Team Albany to pick up the wooden spoon. Team Albany were unfortunately hampered by an unwell Ian Poulter who struggled through the day, finishing at +4 over par for the singles. Tiger Woods was also unable to assist the team Albany effort with a final round of even. Tiger Woods is swinging well but the final product is still not quite there, yet.
Closest to the pin competitions were won by; Sean O’Hair on hole 4 with 9 feet 9 inches; Ernie Els on hole 6 at 7 feet 7 inches; Thomas Bjorn on hole 13 with 2 feet 3 inches and on hole 17 Soren Kjeldsen with 4 feet 6 inches.
Ernie Els is playing very well in his quest to make The Masters, if he does not qualify Iwould suggest that he would be a great pick for an invitation to the tournament.
