PGA Grand Slam of Golf Overview
Established in 1979, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf is considered the world’s most exclusive golf tournament—a prestigious competition featuring the winners of the current season’s four Major Championships including the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship. Held each autumn after the conclusion of the PGA and European Tours, the Grand Slam is the culmination of the global golfing calendar showcasing the best golfers in the world. Once an 18-hole single-day event, the tournament is now a 36-hole two-day showdown that’s broadcast to a television audience in more than 100 countries.
The Grand Slam’s illustrious history began at the Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, where 1978 U.S. Open champion Andy North and 1978 Masters champion Gary Player shared the trophy as joint winners. Since then the tournament has been played on a different course each year until it settled down at Poipo Bay Golf Course from 1994 to 2006 on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. In 2007 the tournament moved again, this time to the Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda where that year’s U.S. Open Champion Ángel Cabrera won the crystal trophy and the island’s famed Pink Jacket.
The tournament stayed put for one more year before moving to its current home at Port Royal Golf Course, which was completely refurbished in preparation for the event in 2009. With a total purse of $1.35 million—first place receiving $600,0000—last year’s tournament was won by PGA champion Keegan Bradley who competed against Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and British Open champion Darren Clarke. To watch the world’s best golfers on Bermuda’s finest course join us this year as Port Royal hosts the 30th annual PGA Grand Slam of Golf in October.
