Adam Scott's dramatic surge pips Justin Rose at PGA Grand Slam of Golf
Wednesday 16 October 2013
Adam Scott fired a course-record 64 to storm past Justin Rose and claim victory at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.
Rose had led by a single stroke with three holes to play but he had no answer for Scott in the closing stages as the Australian won the 36-hole tournament – which gathers the season's four major champions – by two shots on eight under.
The Masters winner took control on the penultimate hole when his six-iron landed within inches to allow him a tap-in eagle three.
Jason Dufner finished third on three under while Padraig Harrington, who replaced Open champion Phil Mickelson, was well off the pace on three over.
