On Sunday [Apr 15] Adam Scott became the first Australian to win The Masters, simultaneously becoming the first to qualify for the 2013 PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda at Port Royal Golf Course.
To win the famed Green Jacket, Scott, 32, putted masterfully, ultimately fending off Masters  and Grand Slam  Champ Angel Cabrera in a thrilling sudden death playoff.
Scott talks with ESPN after winning the Masters:
“Adam Scott has come close to winning Major Championships many times before and now he finally has a well-deserved breakthrough,” said David Charles, Senior Director of Championships for the PGA of America. “After making history for Australia at the Masters he has an end-of-season celebration to look forward to in Bermuda.”
The Grand Slam features the winners of the year’s four Major Championships – the U.S. Open, the Open Championship, the PGA Championship and the Masters. The other three qualifiers will be decided in June, July and August of this year. Only players who have won a Major can earn a spot in the elite foursome.
The Gland Slam will be played six months from now, October 14 to 16, and broadcast to a worldwide audience by Turner Sports on TNT. The Bermuda Department of Tourism, Port Royal and the Fairmont Southampton will host the 31st PGA Grand Slam of Golf.
Ticket-carrying fans are allowed to get closer to the pros at the Grand Slam than at any other competitive professional golf tournament. Because there is only one group during the two-day event spectators are permitted to follow the players down the fairway of every hole – standing just a few feet from the action in some cases.
Andy Burrows, Grand Slam Chairman, said: “Every spring when the Masters Champion is crowned it starts our engine for the Grand Slam in the fall. After watching this year’s exciting tournament on television our whole team is really revved up for October.
“Congratulations to Adam Scott and we look forward to hosting him and the other Majors Champions in Bermuda.”
The PGA Grand Slam of Golf features a $1.35 million purse, with the winner receiving $600,000; second place $300,000; third place $250,000 and fourth place $200,000.
