Congratulations to Oliver Wilson for his seven under 65 to win the low honours and the ’Payne Stewart Salver’ at this years Tavistock Cup. For Oli is was his debut representing his new club Lake Nona with team mates Graeme McDowell, Ross Fisher, Peter Hanson, Retief Goosen and Henrik Stenson. The Tavistock Cup is a golf club championship with Isleworth and Lake Nona being joined by two new teams – the Albany Club from the Bahamas and Queenwood from the UK. The event boasts one of the best fields in golf, which is how the Tavistock Group are able to raise the millions of dollars they do each year for their Foundation.

It is great to see the hard work paying off with the swing and by closing out the tournament with a 3, 3, 3, 3 finish including holing out for an eagle 3 on the 17th. Hopefully, Oli can take lots of confidence from this back to Europe next week and keep on improving and continue this form on the European Tour in Spain.
Not the first professional win but it was a world class field and you’ve got to start somewhere! Congratulations once again from all at Quintic.
