(AP) WINDERMERE, Fla. - Ian Poulter birdied the first hole of a playoff to lift Albany past Lake Nona in the Tavistock Cup on Tuesday, ending Lake Nona’s event winning streak at four in the team tournament.
Poulter shot an even-par 72 at Isleworth, then teamed with Tiger Woods in the best-ball playoff against Lake Nona’s Graeme McDowell and Henrik Stenson.
Albany tied Lake Nona at 7 over, with Woods and Tim Clark shooting 73, and Justin Rose finishing with a 77. The event was shortened to one day of stroke play because of the Monday finish in Arnold Palmer Invitational.
McDowell had a 71 to lead Lake Nona. Ross Fisher had a 72, Stenson shot 74, and Peter Hanson 78.
Primland and Isleworth tied for third at 8 over, Oak Tree was 12 over and Queenwood 20 over.
Primland’s Webb Simpson had the best round, shooting 70.
