Tiger Woods leads Isleworth to victory

In his final tuneup for the Masters, Tiger Woods shot a 7-under 65 on Tuesday to lead Isleworth to a 17 1/2 -12 1/2 victory over Lake Nona in the Tavistock Cup.

The matches were between tour professionals who belong to the two private clubs in Orlando. Isleworth improved to 2-0-1 in the series.

The final round was two-man teams playing stroke play against each other, with four points available in each of the five matches. Isleworth won 11 1/2 of the 20 points available.

Woods had the low round of the day, winning two points by beating Lake Nona captain Ernie Els (72) and Champions Tour player Mark McNulty (68), both of whom earned a point each by beating John Cook (76).

Woods earned $300,000 -- $200,000 for being medalist on Tuesday, and $100,000 for being on the winning team.

Isleworth, which had a 6-4 lead going into the final day, seized control when Charles Howell III (68) and Stuart Appleby (72) swept all four points against Retief Goosen (73) and Sergio Garcia (74).

Lake Nona picked up three points when Trevor Immelman shot 68 to score two points over Isleworth captain Mark O'Meara (80) and Arjun Atwal (72). Atwal picked up a point by beating Immelman's partner, Maarten Lafeber (74).

Isleworth won the inaugural matches 14 1/2 -9 1/2 in 2004. The matches ended in a tie last year because of darkness.
