Padraig Harrington captured the 30th PGA Grand Slam of Golf after closing with a 4-under 67 for a one-shot win over U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson at the Port Royal Golf Course today [Oct 24].

The three-time major champion was only asked this weekend to fill in for British Open champion Ernie Els, who injured his ankle. The Irishman pulled away with three straight Birdies early on the back nine and finished the 36-hole event at 9-under 133 earning $600,000.

  1. Sally Jordon says:

    OBA is this one of the cuts we can look for in an oba tourism budget? Or will Michael D not cut this tournament because he and his senate buddy Jeanie have way too much free fun – profiling with colt craig and all the golf celebs? Things you know, that we don’t know, that we need to know.

    • whatever says:

      The PGA has already cut Bermuda from the schedule after this year, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

    • Dont Drink the KoolAid says:

      Speaking of golfing buddies, I saw Derrick Burgess, Billy Griffith and Mike Jackman hacking around on Monday during the pro-am event. All expenses paid courtesy of the taxpayers and they were too cheap to even tip their caddies. Classy bunch.

  2. Hacking says:

    Bottom line is OBA is complaining about government spending and using government purse for their own enjoyment. Can’t have it both ways, check their released outline for Bermuda. They will spend more that the present government. Go take a seat, we will have to drink kool aid under a OBA Dunkley government.

  3. Terry says:

    Hacking; at least it won’t be a Jones Town.

  4. k says:

    a great job by all of the port royal staff and volenteers for another successful grand slam event,viewed by MILLIONS around the globe !!!!!!
