8:16 am on 22 October 2009

US Open champion Lucas Glover holed two monster putts on the way to a two-stroke lead after the opening round of the end-of-season PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

The long-hitting American drained a 20-metre to birdie the fourth and rammed in a 10-metre to eagle the par-five 17th in breezy conditions at Port Royal Golf Course.

Glover fired a six-under-par 65 to take control of the 36-hole stroke-play event which brings together the winners of the year's four majors.

Fellow American and British Open champion Stewart Cink opened with a 67 at Port Royal while Masters winner Angel Cabrera of Argentina carded a 70.

South Korean Yang Yong-eun, who overhauled Tiger Woods to clinch the PGA Championship at Hazeltine National, returned a level 71.
