Photos: 2011 PGA Grand Slam Of Golf

October 19, 2011

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.
