Tavistock Cup: Where Big Golfers Mix With Big Dealmakers

CNBC’s Scott Wapner has a rough life: He’s at the Tavistock Cup in Orlando, Fla. and calling it work.

The event ends Tuesday at the Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, where the first matches were held in 2004.

The Citigroup Private Bank sponsors the tournament, and you can bet there will be business deals getting discussed between putts. Twelve of the world’s top 31 golfers will compete for $2.5 million in prize money, including Mark O’Meara, Ernie Els and Tiger Woods.

Hole-in-one prizes include cars, boats and jewelry.

“Tickets to this event may be the toughest in all of sports to score,” Wapner said Tuesday. “You can’t buy them. In fact, the Tavistock Group invites only 4,000 people, compared with 50,000 for a regular tournament.”
