Tiger Woods showed some progress at Doral, his T10 finish his best at an official PGA Tour event in nine months.

Woods closed with a 6-under-par 66 Sunday at the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral and tied Rickie Fowler for the day's low round. It also matched his best score of the year.

"Peaking at the right time for the Tavistock Cup," Woods said with a big smile. "It's definitely getting better. There's no doubt. I'm putting the pieces together. Everything is kind of shaping up."

Woods heads the Albany team for the two-day team competition. He will join Ian Poulter, Justin Rose, Ernie Els, Arjun Atwal and Trevor Immelman on that squad.

The Islesworth team is made up of Robert Allenby, Stuart Appleby, Brian Davis, J.B. Holmes, Lee Janzen and Sean O'Hair.

The team from Lake Nona features Ross Fisher, Retief Goosen, Peter Hanson, Graeme McDowell, Henrik Stenson and Oliver Wilson.

Thomas Bjorn, Darren Clarke, David Howell, Adam Scott, Paul McGinley and Soren Kjeldsen will play for the Queenwood team.

First round action is Monday with the final 18 on Tuesday.
