Photos: 2011 PGA Grand Slam Of Golf

October 19, 2011 | 1 Comment

Charl Schwartzel charged into contention on the front nine, but Keegan Bradley stayed steady all day and won the 29th PGA Grand Slam of Golf by a single shot at the 6,845-yard Port Royal Golf Course.

Bradley, this year’s PGA Championship winner, held off fast-closing Masters champion Schwartzel to win by one stroke.

America’s Bradley settled for a par-71 in a windy final round to complete 36 holes on 4-under 138 while South Africa’s Schwartzel, who began the day seven adrift, closed with a 65 to finish a 3-under 140.

Bradley took home $600,000, twice as much as Schwartzel, in the two-day, $1.35 million showdown of the year’s four major golf champions. All four players were first-time major winners.

US Open champion Rory McIlroy, who began the day level for the lead with Bradley on 67, struggled to a 75 to take third on 142 while Northern Irish compatriot Darren Clarke, the British Open winner, fired a 74 to end on 151.
