Scott wins Grand Slam of Golf

6:20 pm on 17 October 2013

The Australian golfer Adam Scott has added another trophy to his cabinet, rallying from four shots back with 10 holes to play to claim the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.

The Masters champion produced a stunning course record bogey-free seven-under 64, to finish at eight-under against the year's major champions.

It was good enough for a two-shot win over US Open champion Justin Rose, who had a four-shot buffer with 10 holes left.

PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner was third and Padraig Harrington, filling in for British Open winner Phil Mickelson, was a distant 4th.

Rose claimed just over 700 thousand dollars, the pink jacket for the champion, to go with his green one from Augusta and was also awarded honorary membership of the course by the premier of Bermuda for breaking the course record.

The 33-year-old now has his sights on the three major Australian tournaments and the World Cup, also to be held in Australia.
