Isleworth Reclaims Tavistock Cup


Tavistock CupORLANDO, Fla. -- Isleworth reclaimed the Tavistock Cup on Tuesday, topping Lake Nona, 19 1/2 - 11 1/2 in golf's battle between Florida country clubs.
Tiger Woods returned to his winning ways after losing the WGC-CA Championship Monday morning. His winning streak of five consecutive PGA TOUR events was snapped by Geoff Ogilvy, but his side got the win on Tuesday.
'We got it in,' joked Woods, referring to Monday's finish at Doral. 'We had a good time out there with the group. We were needling each other all the way around.
Tuesday's second round featured two-man matches where each player in the group play an 18-hole, stroke-play singles match against each of the opposing two players, so each player plays two singles matches simultaneously.
Woods beat Retief Goosen and Justin Rose for two full points. His partner for Isleworth, Charles Howell III, also earned two points.
J.B. Holmes of Isleworth earned medalist honors for the day and $500,000.
'It's been a pretty good two days for me,' acknowledged Holmes, who also won the long-drive competition and closest to the hole. 'It's been a lot of fun for my first time out here.'
Holmes beat Ian Poulter for the point and for medalist honors. Holmes also knocked off Chris DiMarco. Poulter and DiMarco were able to get a point each for Lake Nona in besting Daniel Chopra.
Annika Sorenstam (Lake Nona) and Paula Creamer (Isleworth) joined the fray on Tuesday and Sorenstam got a point for Nona, topping Creamer in Tuesday's first match.
The second match saw Isleworth's captain, Mark O'Meara take a full point each off of Graeme McDowell and Mark McNulty. All was not lost for McNulty as he beat John Cook, but Cook got a point in defeating McDowell.
Holmes put on a show in match three, but the fourth match was basically a push.
Lake Nona captain Ernie Els struggled badly and lost both of his matches to Isleworth's Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby. Els' partner Trevor Immelman took two points with victories over both Aussies.
Ben Curtis of Lake Nona defeated Craig Parry for a point, but halved his match against Isleworth's Nick O'Hern, who did get a full point over Henrik Stenson. The Swede got himself a point in beating Parry.
Lake Nona won the Tavistock Cup in 2007.
