Masters champion Adam Scott broke the course record Wednesday at Port Royal with a 7-under 64 to win the PGA Grand Slam of Golf by two shots over U.S. Open champion Justin Rose.
Trailing by four shots with 10 holes left in Southampton, Bermuda, Scott pulled ahead for the first time with a 6-iron that settled inches from the cup on the par-5 17th for a tap-in eagle. Rose pulled his approach and had to settle for par.
"Obviously, I'm thrilled to come out on top," Scott said. "Fun -- but a trying couple of days, really. ... But I played very well and managed to slowly claw away at Justin."
Scott finished at 8-under 134 in his first trip to Bermuda. He won a pink jacket to go along with the green jacket he won at Augusta National. He also won $600,000.
Rose, who opened with a 67, had a 69 in the 36-hole exhibition for the four major champions of the year. Rose took home $300,000.
PGA champion Jason Dufner, who started two shots behind, fell off the pace quickly and was never a threat. He closed with a 70 to finish in third, five shots behind. He won $250,000.
Padraig Harrington, a three-time major winner, shot 71 to finish eight behind. He won $200,000. As the defending champion, Harrington was first alternate to replace British Open champion Phil Mickelson, who chose not to play.
Rose had a two-shot lead going into the final day and ran off four birdies to double the lead. Scott stayed in range with three birdies, and then the Australian played mistake-free in tough conditions on the back nine to rally for the win.
"I started with a two-shot lead and somebody had to shoot well to beat me," Rose said. "When you're in that position you want to close it out. But when somebody finishes it out like that, you have to tip your hat and say you were beaten rather than losing. He was 4 under the last six, so that's a strong finish."
For setting the course record at Port Royal -- Lucas Glover had a 65 in 2009 -- Bermuda premier Craig Cannonier offered Scott an honorary membership at the course.
"Do I get to keep it if someone beats it next year?" Scott replied.
The world's No. 1-ranked player won't tee it up again until the Turkish Airlines Open on Nov. 7-10 and is not expected to resume his tour schedule until he defends his title at the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 23-26 at Torrey Pines.
"I'm still wrapping my head around it," Woods said Tuesday during a conference call to promote the World Challenge, an annual tournament Dec. 5-8 at Sherwood Country Club that supports the Tiger Woods Foundation. "It's new to all of us, this wraparound schedule."
The 2013-14 season began last week with the Frys.com Open at CordeValle in San Martin and continues this week with the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. Next week the tour heads to Malaysia, followed by a World Golf Championship event in China before the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island, Ga., and the OHL Classic at Mayakoba near Cancun, Mexico.
All six of the tournaments are now official, offer FedEx Cup points, and the winners get an invitation to the Masters.
