Albany ruined Lake Nona’s bid for a fifth consecutive Tavistock Cup title when Ian Poulter made a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.
The event, shortened to one day of stroke play because of the Monday finish to the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard, saw four-man teams from Albany and Lake Nona finish the day at 7-over, tied for the lowest composite total in the six-team field.
Poulter, who shot a team-low 72 Tuesday at Isleworth, was joined by Tiger Woods (73), Tim Clark (73) and Justin Rose (77) on the victorious side. Woods joined Poulter in the best-ball playoff against Lake Nona’s Graeme McDowell and Henrik Stenson.
McDowell carded a 71 to be one of just two players in red numbers for the day. Ross Fisher (72), Stenson (74) and Peter Hanson (78) rounded out the scoring for Lake Nona.
Primland and host team Isleworth finished one shot off the pace while Oak Tree National was 12-over and Queenwood was 20-over.
Webb Simpson, representing Primland, had the day’s best round: a 2-under 70.
