PGA Grand Slam Of Golf 2011: Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley Share Lead After First Day

Rory McIlroy and Keegan Bradley are tied for the Grand Slam of Golf lead after the first day.

Rory McIlroy and Keegan Bradley both shot a four-under 67 on Tuesday in the first of two rounds at the 2011 PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

This is a two-day event at Port Royal Golf Course that features all four of the year's major winners, so this tournament's field includes Bradley, the PGA Champion; McIlroy, the U.S. Open winner; Charl Schwartzel, the Masters champion; and Darren Clarke, the British Open champ.

While a small field, the Grand Slam of Golf features some of golf's rising young stars and one of its mainstays who finally broke through. It's an interesting arrangement of players for sure, ranging from McIlroy, who may have taken over the title of 'Most Popular Golfer,' to Clarke, who searched for his first major title for so long.

All four players were first-time major champions in 2011.

At the end of 18 holes, the leaderboard was in reverse age order, with McIlroy, 22, and Bradley, 25, leading the 27-year-old Schwartzel, who shot a three-over 74, and the 43-year-old Clarke, who shot a six-over 77.
