Ben Crenshaw, the Masters champion, yesterday capped an extraordinary year with victory in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Kauai, Hawaii, when he sank a 50-yard chip for an eagle at the final hole. The improbable shot gave Crenshaw a one-stroke victory in the 36-hole event reserved for the winners of the year's four grand slam tournaments. US Open champion, Corey Pavin, and Steve Elkington, the Australian PGA Championship winner, tied for second place on 141, with John Daly finishing eight strokes off the pace.
