US Open champion Lucas Glover coasted to a five-shot victory at the end-of-season PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

Two strokes ahead overnight in the elite 36-hole event which brings together the winners of the year's four majors, Glover fired a second round five-under-par 66 to finish the tournament 11 under par.

Although briefly caught in a tie for the lead by fellow American Stewart Cink after reaching the turn in two-under 34, Glover regained control with four birdies in the next eight holes.

British Open champion Cink birdied four of the first seven holes before fading on the back nine, a closing 70 leaving him in third place at five-under 137.

Masters winner Angel Cabrera of Argentina, helped by an eagle at the par-five seventh, signed off with a 66 to finish second at six under.

South Korean Yang Yong-eun, who overhauled Tiger Woods to clinch the PGA Championship in August, propped up the four-man field at one under after returning a 70.
