How often do you get to or want to watch Tiger and Mark O'Meara play golf in shorts?

tavistock_cup.gifThe third annual Tavistock Cup kicked teed off this morning at Isleworth Country Club. How often do you get to see twenty of the world's top golfers have a fun casual competition, in shorts no less? With a small purse of 1.7 million, bragging rights are the real prize to be had in this friendly competition.



"The Tavistock Cup is a healthy and spirited sports competition and a unique opportunity to give back to the community," said Tom Morgan, president and CEO of Hughes Supply.

Two teams from Isleworth and Lake Nona Country Clubs will be pitted against each other today and tomorrow. The first day will feature Fourball competition with the lowest 18-hole score winning the match. Four matches in all will be played today all for a total of eight possible points.



Tomorrow will feature Singles competition with both Isleworth players challenging both Lake Nona players within the foursomes. So each member of the Isleworth team will play a stroke play singles match against each member of the Lake Nona team. Therefore, each player will play two singles matches during the 18-hole round. A total of 16 singles matches each worth one point will be played on day two. The winning team will need at least 12½ points to be crowned the Tavistock Cup champion.



Last year, Annika Sorenstam even joined in the singles competition but with teammate Ian Poulter lost their match to Charles Howell III and Lee Jazen. Ultimately the event was reduced to one day after rain extend THE PLAYERS Championship and the sudden death playoff between Tiger Woods and Lee Jazen vs. Ernie Els and Retief Goosen was even halted due to darkness leaving the teams tied at 8½ The teams agreed to the tie and to share the trophy for six months each but since Isleworth won the inaugural event they are technically the defending champions.



This years teams include a who's who list of players and the teams are as follows:
