Tiger Woods hits form in Tavistock Cup

Tiger Woods
Woods' encouraging performance comes three weeks before the Masters

Tiger Woods continued his preparations for next month's Masters with a solid performance on the opening day of the Tavistock Cup in Florida.

Woods shot a better-ball score of 64 with partner Arjun Atwal for Albany to finish on eight under at the halfway stage in the four-club event.

Graeme McDowell and Retief Goosen had the joint-best score of the day with a 12-under 60 for Lane Nona.

English pair Justin Rose and Ian Poulter shot 61 for Albany.

Brian Davis and JB Holmes also recorded a 60 for Isleworth, who finished the day a cumulative 30 under.

With singles to come, Albany are two behind, three ahead of Lake Nona with Surrey club Queenwood 14 adrift.

Woods entered the competition, a four-club event similar in structure to the Ryder Cup, on the back of a morale-boosting top-10 finish at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

And the former world number one backed up his closing-round 66 in Doral with a further encouraging performance ahead of the Masters, which begins on 7 April.
