The Tavistock Cup will feature a modified format on Monday at Isleworth due to the rain-delayed finish of the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard.
Sixteen of the 24 players in this year’s Tavistock Cup field will play on Monday. Those Tavistock Cup players who did not finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Sunday will join the two-day tournament on Tuesday.
Tavistock Cup’s second round will feature all 24 players in this year’s field representing Albany, Isleworth, Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, Oak Tree National, Primland and Queenwood Golf Club. Team Queenwood has replaced Thomas Bjorn with Martin Laird.
The Tavistock Cup will be televised on Golf Channel Monday following the conclusion of play at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It will also air live on Golf Channel Tuesday.
Monday’s competition will feature a Better Ball Stroke Play format. Round 1 will not count toward the Tavistock Cup results.
Tavistock Cup will be reduced to an 18-hole individual stoke play format on Tuesday. Each team will count four 18-hole individual scores on Tuesday.

Group 1 - 12:20 p.m. Tom Lewis and Paul McGinley will play with Bob Tway and Scott Verplank.
