Adam Scott secures PGA Grand Slam title

Australia&aposs Adam Scott has won the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda by two shots from England&aposs Justin Rose. Scott eagled the 17th hole at the Port Royal Golf Course on Wednesday to claim his decisive lead over Rose, who had started the final round on top of the leaderboard. The Australian, who became the first player from his country to win the Masters this year, produced a bogey-free seven-under 64 to overhaul Rose and lift the trophy with an overall score of eight under. Rose looked on track to win the pink jacket in Southampton, Bermuda, when he carded four consecutive birdies on the front nine but a bogey on the ninth hole halted the Englishman&aposs momentum as he moved to seven under for the tournament with half a round to play. Scott notched three birdies on the front nine to reach four under and picked up shots on the 13th and 15th holes to increase the pressure on Rose. The 33-year-old Englishman then bogeyed the 16th hole, which allowed Scott to draw level, and the Australian capitalised on the par-five 17th with an eagle three to wrap up victory. Rose finished at six-under overall, while Jason Dufner claimed third at three under after a one-under 70 and Padraig Harrington finished fourth at three over for the tournament after an even-par round on Wednesday.
